Property is overwhelmingly the asset class of choice for Australian investors. And it’s not difficult to see why. There’s simply nothing else that has a risk/return profile anywhere comparable to the stellar results property can achieved when intelligently leveraged.
That’s why banks are so happy to lend enormous sums of money. 80% of the property value is a very common loan, and in good times, 106.5% loans were possible.
That’s how confident banks are in property.
But to achieve significantly higher returns, there are a number of key factors to consider when acquiring the next addition to your portfolio.
The location (paramount, but often investors stop there)
The property type appropriate to that location (apartment, town house, detatched dwelling, dual occupancy)
The specific details of that property, including:
- Micro-location (specific walking distances to amenities)
- Quality of fixtures and finishings
- Amount of work required
- Overall land content
Being a property investors is about much more than simply picking good locations.
