WHY INVEST IN THE PROPERTY MARKET?
Nearly every major company and personal fortune in Australia has been based on property holdings. If you have ever tried to borrow from a Bank, what is the first question they ask? “Do you own any property?” – Maybe they know something!
We invest in property for a number of reasons, some of which are:
- Capital growth
- Return on investment
- Reduce tax liability and accumulate tax losses whilst working abroad
- Security in retirement
- Forced savings for children’s education and to help them get a good start in life (marriage, home, overseas trip etc)
- Plan for your return to Australia
WHY THE MELBOURNE MARKET?
The law of supply and demand controls all prices of all commodities. Property is no different. In rural areas the supply of land is endless and demand is low. In the city the highest price for residential land is close to the Central Business District (CBD) where the population is highest in density and it is continually increasing.
The most active area outside the CBD is that ring of suburbs on the fringe of the city. Why?
- Fantastic services (i.e. Transport, Schools, Universities, Shops, Recreational facilities)
- High rental return
- Stability in the market
- Excellent growth
- High rental demand
- Economic confidence
- Quality of housing
However, each investor’s case is different and our experienced Consultant can advise you on the perfect property for your personal needs.
As an expat we appreciate your desire to live a comfortable lifestyle and enjoy the good things that your career moves provide. Our aim is to ensure that you at least have a strategy to insulate against capital growth whilst you are away, as well accumulate tax credits for your return. These credits can be used against future income or any future Capital Gains tax.
