With every property boom comes a whole new generation of property investors who are looking to buy their first investment property and the more experienced investors who are adding to their portfolio, who might be looking to take on some more risk for a greater possible return. 

With marketers and spruikers also back on the scene, they know all the hot buttons to push to make the more speculative types of investment property seem very enticing on the outside. 

However if you don’t have my inside view, there’s a number of downsides you may not notice which can lead to underperformance or the complete loss of your hard earned money.

To stop you from losing your shirt or being a lamb to the slaughter, I took it upon myself to bring you this two-part episode about 9 of the speculative property investment types that you need to be aware of- including their benefits, and the downsides to each of them.
