PIT 15: 2 Properties in 6 months (at 31) with Melissa Cowan

Melissa Cowan is 31 with two investment properties. After buying her first IP off the plan, she very quickly purchased her second.

How did she do it? It’s a great story of risk management and understanding your threshold for stress. So many of my previous guests have said “I wish I started investing earlier” – well here is that investor – and what a great story it is.


We discuss – 

1:44- Mel has always wanted to create financial independence

4:59- How Mel attended numerous free property seminars looking for answers

6:32 – Shares v real estate and why Mel loves the leverage of real estate

11:08 – Buying off the plan

15:00 – How Mel purchased her second investment so quickly after her first

17:04 – Mel’s plans for 2022 and her plans for a third property
