Looking for your new investment property

Looking for your new investment property

Looking for your new investment property? Here are some tips to help you get started. 

Investing in property (be it an apartment unit or a house) more often than not results in direct financial benefits, but still do all your homework to ensure you’re making an informed decision for your investment. 

Here are 2 key things to watch out for when on the hunt, just to start you off: 

1. Choosing within your budget.

Visit a mortgage advisor and establish your budget early in the process when looking at properties, so you’re across exactly how much you can afford. 

Bonus tip! Always build in a buffer, and it’s safer to assume that there’ll be extra costs in the first few years after purchase. 

2. Look for property with capital growth.

Of course you’ll want your property to return gains in the long run, so this should actually be the most important thing to look out for. Do your research around annual median values, and track recent sales to identify high-growth, developing areas you could tap into. 

Once you've narrowed down your search to selected areas/suburbs, then go for the streets with broad appeal. Areas incorporating careful master planning and design integrity can ensure your investment is protected for the future.
