To ensure your property portfolio is working like a business and your profits are being maximised an investor will benefit from having the right team around them.  The above 3 strategies outlined need careful thought and guidance from a professional in the right field.  A financial planner can potentially give an investor the right guidance and support required to help maximise the performance of a property portfolio.
