Incredible options for the Average Joe
Fact: According to the Australian Tax Office, there are 1.7 million private landlords in Australia, and over a quarter of these individuals own more than one investment property.
Think about it – 1.7… million people effectively own an investment property. Without getting into the math, that more or less translates to 10 percent of population.
In addition, the largest group of Australian property investors are not on high incomes. In fact, they have a taxable income between $30,001 and $75,000.
Interesting stuff, hey?
We say this because for decades, there seems to be this cultural misconception that property investing is purely just “for the über rich” – like, so Ferrari in the garage rich.
It’s simply not the case.
Successful property investment centres on having a personalised game plan. It’s not a get-rich-quick scheme, and those who view it that way, tend to stare down the barrel of poor decisions and regret sooner than later.
But investing in residential property the right way can work, and it can work for you.
What makes a good investment property?
The classic buyer’s rule, “location, location, location,” hold true for rental properties as well.
Location factors remain paramount, including proximity to:
- Public transport;
- Schools and universities;
- Recreational facilities (i.e. beaches, parks, shopping centres, sports fields); and
- Large employers.
There are also many other current factors such as demographics, vacancy rates, and external factors involving China and the resources boom, which we’d love the opportunity to chat to those interested over the phone so we can provide the most accurate analysis, as the market is constantly shifting.
