When it comes to investing in property, there are lots of things to consider. Lots of things. As far as we at PROPERTYOLOGY are concerned, potential for capital growth over the medium-long term should be top of the list! Ultimately, when investing in property, you need to take a step back and remember that the transaction you are about to enter into is for the purchase of an asset. Yes, hopefully your asset will be income producing, but you aren’t purchasing a tenant and you aren’t purchasing a rent roll. So let’s give ourselves every opportunity to ensure that the asset we are about to spend potentially 100’s of 1,000’s of dollars on, is going to increase in value!
Every single week, PROPERTYOLOGY spends hours upon hours researching the property economics of all 550 Local Government Authorities in Australia, in order to uncover the various towns and cities which we feel have the best potential for our investors.
Working with clients, we understand that there are lots of other important considerations too – for example depreciation, rental yield, holding costs, and gearing – just to name a few. But none of these trumps the main consideration.
When selecting this particular property, we remained focused on our prime objective however, with an anticipated rental return in excess of 5.2% we believe that this is the best of both worlds!
The city where this property is located services over 160,000 people and already has quite a tight rental market. Our research indicates that in the short term, demand for accommodation in this particular location is only going to increase, meaning potential rental increases!
Congratulations again on making a very astute investment decision and securing this fantastic property George and Kate!
