Navigating the Australian property market

The journey of property acquisition and investment can seem daunting, which is why most people seek expertise in this field. We have outlined some of the intricacies of the Australian property market, equipping you with the fundamental knowledge to help with your research.

Firstly, why do people even invest in property? Typically speaking, the only reason you would invest in property is something monetary related. Whether it’s to earn extra passive income, set yourself up for retirement or save on tax, it all circles back to a financial decision. The Australian property market has been a lucrative and safe investment asset class for decades now for both domestic and international investors. Investors have long been seeking a piece of land in high growth areas. After all, the best investment on earth … is earth!

Next, we’re going to outline the process of buying property in Australia. It all starts with finance. Buying a home is easy to do. But if you don’t structure your investment property portfolio the right way, you’re setting yourself up for failure. It’s important to work with a quality finance broker who understands the property investment game well. Investing in property isn’t just about buying and selling – it’s also about maximizing returns and mitigating risks. We have the resources to provide insights tailored to your financial goals.

Once you have the finance sorted, you need to deep dive into the strategy that suits your goals. Strategies can include negative gearing, positive cash flow, knockdown rebuild, rent-vesting, buy & hold or flipping just to name a few. The strategy is extremely important before even considering where to buy or what to buy. Our Qualified Property Investment Advisers can help you with the right strategy for your needs.

Then we reach the ‘where’. Location. Location. Location. Now that we have a view of the finances and validated the strategy, we look for areas in line with our strategy and financial goals. For example, as part of a positive cash flow strategy, we look for high yielding areas whereas a negative gearing strategy will be in lower yields but higher capital growth areas. We have invested heavily and will continue to invest in data sources to keep us up to date with the relevant areas.

Finally the property. Now that we have the finance, strategy and area downpacked, it’s important to find the right type of property. Our team of Buyers Agents will use a SALFA checklist, trialled and tested with hundreds of investors to help filter through the correct properties.

Australia’s property landscape is dynamic and ever-evolving, with regional variations and

sector-specific trends shaping investment prospects. This is where our market research will help keep you up to date with the latest developments, ensuring you’re well-positioned to capitalize on lucrative opportunities as they arise.

In conclusion, navigating the Australian property market may seem like a daunting task, but with the right guidance and resources, it can be a rewarding and fulfilling journey. Whether you’re a

first-time buyer or a seasoned investor, our comprehensive guide is your roadmap to success in the world of Australian real estate.
