Ryan Rahnavard

Ryan joined Gladfish in 2012 as a property consultant. Working way at the bottom, he learned all the ins and outs about property, from the investment side, to the legals, the emotional aspects through to the actual acquisitions side of property. He worked his way up to a team leader within a year and from there, moved on to being an associate director. Ryan's knowledge and experience makes him very well equipped to deal with the vast majority of things that may arise when going through your investment purchase. He loves to travel… who doesn’t? However, he makes a point of taking time off in December, to experience the world and the many wonders it has to offer. He is a great believer that through travel you learn things which being at home or being on the internet can never teach you. Ryan is a lover of adventures, one of my most memorable times was visiting Serengeti… and the proceeding to South Africa and jumping out a plane (tandem sky dive).

How do I know I’m being offered below market value property deals?

By Ryan Rahnavard

When investing in property, you need more than a comparable valuation Investing in a property, I believe, should be seen as a buy-and-hold investment. As the market moves through its natural cycle, short-term prices will fall as well as rise. Hold an investment property long enough, and the price will eventually rise above the price […]
