In terms of the UK property market, there are a number of important choices each investor has to make and we believe there are some simple principles that should be considered.

Taking a balanced view on number one, Capital protection.

Number two, Capital growth / loss.

Number three Income / cash flow.

These three factors should be considered on both a short term medium and long term basis.

The secret in making money in property is being able to stay in the game long enough to realise uplift and ideally making income through cash flow in the intervening period. 

The Kenny Rogers song “The Gambler” said it best.. “You gotta know when to hold 'em, when to fold ‘em, when to walk away and when to run”.

You have to ask yourself regularly what is the right strategy for me and improving my position.
