Hi, and thanks for stopping by! (Cool rhyme)

Welcome to Stealthy Wealth, a personal finance blog where you will find my thoughts on Investing, Cutting Costs, Financial Discipline and any other randomness that pops into my head as I aim for early retirement and financial independence in 2030 at the age of 45. You can view my progress towards this goal on the Tracker Page.

You can view the latest post below, or, if you want to be notified whenever I put up new content, just pop your email address into the text box on the right, and the internet elves will do the rest (as a nice side effect I will also send you useful spreadsheets and stuff from time to time).

A Guide To Residential Property Investing

Why use a calculator when you can
use a Spreadsheet! 
Investing in a second property is a very South African thing to do. We have all been around the braai with the usual utterances of "you can't go wrong with property" and "property prices always go up".

The result is that many people go jumping head first into residential property investing without giving much thought to all the costs and factors and ignoring the multitude of other options available to them.

I am hopeful that this article will go some way to helping people do a proper analysis before committing (a lot of) money to what can quite easily turn into a disastrous investment.
