What to Consider when buying an investment property

Unlike buying a property to live in, buying an investment property is done with the clear intention of making money, largely via rental income. Consider that some things that might be important when looking to buy a home might not be as important for an investment property, such as its proximity to your work or being within particular school zoning.

Identify your financial objectives and research the property market to decide on how to get into the investment property market. Where and what you buy will affect your return on investment.

Costs of Investing in property

Purchasing and managing an investment property can be costly and will affect your overall return.

Borrowing money to buy

If you borrow to invest, you will have to pay the property mortgage. You should not invest relying entirely on rental income covering the mortgage interest, as there may be times when your property is empty.

Many people buy investment property with interest-only loans but it is important to understand that the interest-only period will end after a certain time. When this takes place, your repayments will increase to pay the amount borrowed, as well as the interest. Using a trusted mortgage broker will allow you to find the right loan and rate.

Costs of owning an investment property

Ongoing costs of investment properties include:

What does a property investment advisor do?

A property investment advisor lays the foundation for your investment. So, whether you are setting yourself to purchase your first property or building your portfolio, an experienced property advisor can save you time and help you to find the property that matches your investment goals.

Your Strategic Property investment advisor will importantly; assist in developing your investment strategy, research and source properties to fit your strategy, facilitate the purchase and be there for personal advice and assistance both pre and post purchase. We specialise in finding profitable property investment opportunities including potential for subdividing, new developments, or property investment syndicates.

Benefits of using a property investment advisor

The most compelling reason to consult an advisor before buying property is the simple fact that it is a significant investment and one that you are expecting to make you money.

You don’t have to work with a property advisor, but buying and managing an investment property without help takes a significant amount of time and research. By relying on specialised expertise, with local knowledge and historical data, you’re better positioned to get the most out of your investment and avoid making mistakes that could prove costly - literally, or opportunistically.

By discussing and refining your investment goals with a property investment advisor, you can significantly reduce the time you spend and find options that match your investment goals.

My first interstate property purchase and I am glad I went with Strategic Property Group for both conveyancing and property management.
