12 days of property investing facts, figures and statistics
Christmas is on the horizon. We're 12 days away from the big day, with lots taking place at GrowthFunders.
Over the past few weeks in particular we've been sharing a wealth of information around property investing. We hosted our 'introduction to property investment' webinar in mid-November, launched our 'integrating property investments into your portfolio' guide at the same time and have discussed a variety of property investment-related topics on our blog recently.
It really is a brilliant sector, and there's such a lot to understand and be aware of. It makes it easier that so much of the information is genuinely fascinating.
And so that leads us perfectly onto our focus for the next 12 days - sharing some of the most intriguing property investing facts!
From today until Christmas Eve we'll be publishing a different property investing fact every single day on our social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn). We'll then be updating this post daily with the latest fact, so by the time Christmas comes around, you'll have 12 brilliant property investing facts to enjoy - Merry Christmas!
