Investor exodus Victoria

Investor exodus means now is the time to buy in Victoria

With the prevailing narrative being that property investors are fleeing Victoria in droves, we believe that savvy investors should be doing the opposite. There had been much media attention on investors deserting Victoria because of its new land tax policy as well as a raft of rental reforms, but the fundamentals of the nation’s second most populous state remained overwhelmingly positive. Now is the time to invest in Victoria because of much lower competition from other investors. In the grand scheme of things, property expenses and taxes are part and parcel of owning investment properties over the long-term and they

Australia’s Population Boom: Challenges and Opportunities

Australia is experiencing rapid population growth, and the latest data indicates that the record population increase observed in 2022 has continued into 2023. This surge in population is primarily driven by a notable increase in net migration following the pandemic-related border closures. The influx of people, particularly students, into Australia is defying the usual trend of students departing after completing their terms. This demographic shift highlights the pressing need for more housing to accommodate the growing population and enhanced infrastructure to ensure a high quality of life in our cities. According to a recent report from PropTrack, the population grew

Chasing cash flow a short-sighted plan

There has been a common question from property investors of late and it’s all to do with cash flow – or rather yields. You see, some new investors have become so fixated on the higher interest rate environment that the only thing they’re thinking about is cash flow. They’d rather search far and wide for a high-yielding property than spend the time necessary to find an income- AND capital-producing asset. Rates rhythm There is no question that the interest rate increases since May last year have impacted an investor’s cash flow – even with higher weekly rents. However, this is

Adelaide

Why North Adelaide is marching to its own property drum

The plethora of property metrics being published lately is showing some stark differences between locations around the nation. Now, this is not unusual at all, because historically our nation has always been made up of a number of different markets doing different things at the same time because of a variety of diverse economic factors.  That was why the boom market conditions around almost the whole nation during 2021 was so unusual because generally that doesn’t happen.  Now, though, we are definitely starting to see market cycle differences with some select suburbs in Sydney and Melbourne apparently posting double-digit median

Is the post-pandemic world your next reason to procrastinate?

The world continues to experience very challenging times with the ongoing spread of the coronavirus stains, wars, climate events etc. It’s very unpleasant knowing that there are fellow human beings suffering and struggling; health wise and economically, with their very lives sometimes at risk. It’s easy to trivialise what is a really serious risk for many vulnerable people and we all need to make sure that our loved ones, friends, neighbours and families are safe. Because really that’s all that matters in life, right? While these things always take time, everything will settle down, wars will end and world economies will recover

Queensland Investors

Why Queensland investors shouldn’t sell in protest

There is an issue in Queensland that is gathering more and more momentum in the media, because it has most of the people in the property investment profession scratching their heads in bewilderment. In fact, I myself have spent plenty of time going: What the heck? What I’m talking about is the new Queensland land tax, which was quietly, or should that be sneakily, passed in late June by the State Government. The tax was first proposed late last year, but no one thought it would actually become a reality because it was so, well, ridiculous and potentially not legal

Why this year is a better property investment year than last

Much has been written about the increase in weekly rents that have been recorded over the past year. Investors can be left thinking if 2022 is a better property investment year than 2021? According to CoreLogic, in the year to July, Australian median rent values increased 7.5 per cent, which is the strongest annual appreciation in rents since December 2008.
