Understanding the Benefits of Investment Property
In the 2011-12 income year, Australians had 2.6 million rental properties, according to Australian Taxation Office (ATO) figures.
The state with the largest number of rental properties was New South Wales, closely followed by Queensland and Victoria. However, there are investment opportunities across the country, no matter where you're based or where you'd like to invest.
Working with the right people to develop a suitable investment strategy can help you grow your wealth for the future. A careful assessment of your short and long-term goals is part of this process, but with DPN you'll kick off the process with a tailored property investment plan.
Should I be investing in property?
There are numerous motivators for investing in property. Some popular reasons are to set up for retirement financially or even to secure a supplementary income throughout working life.
One reason why people choose real estate, rather than other investment options, is because they understand it. The Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) explains that investing in something that can be seen and touched is a big plus for many buyers.
If you're committed to growing your wealth, buying property is one of the options available to you. As with any financial decision, it's a good idea to consider all the options available to you and we encourage you to share your DPN Property Investment Plan with your accountant or financial planner.
What do I need to consider as a property investor?
When investing in property, there are many things to consider, first and foremost, you'll need to scrutinise your finances to establish your borrowing capacity. You may need a deposit saved up or you could tap into the existing equity in your own home in order to borrow to invest.
You'll need to settle on a strategy that's suited to your financial circumstances and goals. If the expenses associated with your property are less than the rental income, it's a positively geared investment. However if the costs outweigh the income, it's negatively geared, explains the ASIC. This is just one thing you'll need to consider when formulating a property investment strategy.
You'll need to budget for ongoing expenses, too. Then there's deciding where to buy, based on different areas' potential for capital growth, not to mention their rental yields. Further, you will need to consider which kind of features potential tenants will seek, from being close to transport to having sufficient bedrooms. Careful planning, budgeting and goal setting is a must.
Fortunately, with DPN's help, we can assist you research all these considerations taking the stress and hard work out of it for you.
