Investment Property – the Real Wealth Creator

Investment Property – the Real Wealth Creator

Creating real wealth with investment property is not hard you just need to plan and have a strategy. Property over the long term usually does very well as you have seen for the Sydney market. The real wealth starts from the scarcity of a resource; in this case, it is land. Everyone wants to live in Sydney and there is only so much land. They are not making more of it so if you want to live close to the CBD then the price increases. However, there are other factors that affect the cost of the land which are external, for example what is the demand to live there, does it have views, is it close to amenities, etc. So how do you make a greater or faster uplift in the price of the property, forcing up the value of your investment? These are called my advanced strategies. So you can just build a standard house, which will do well over the long term, as long as you have researched the area, but doing some advance strategy investment can give you far greater returns. It is usually doing a duplex, or a dual occupancy property, maybe multi units or town houses on a site, splitting the land up or subdividing, adding a granny flat or doing a renovation, knock down and build. These strategies allow you to make much faster capital gains and rental returns on the property – giving you better cash on cash return i.e. the yield on the property if a rental. Or the capital growth giving you an excellent return on initial deposit you put...
Mum and Dad Investors Make $120k on First Property Deal!

Mum and Dad Investors Make $120k on First Property Deal!

I wanted to tell you about a story about one of my clients. The typical Mum and Dad investors – a working couple who wanted to get ahead and did not know where to start. Both husband and wife have been working hard all their lives and have just about paid off their current house. They are in their mid 40’s, have excellent job stability making a moderate income and their kids have left home. They came to Blue Wave and asked…. “Chris we want to start to invest but don’t know where to start, can you help us?” I said “Sure, let’s sit down and work out your goals and what you are trying to achieve and from there we will devise a plan to get you there – how does that sound?” “Chris that would be great.” Was their response. So their plans were; to build some assets to provide cash flow into their retirement. They wanted to travel more and have planned to have an overseas trip every year and enjoy life a little more. There was also a 5-year plan to sell their house and open a bed and breakfast / cabins, to again allow for some more cash flow but slow down and be able to leave their jobs and move to a new area where they will have a small business that they own outright. Sounded sweet – so we had the goals and now we needed the plan. I told them a little about what I do and what I specialise in. My passion is really advanced strategy property deals, such as duplexes,...
Dual Occupancy Revolutionary investment

Dual Occupancy Revolutionary investment

The dual occupancy  property is a revolutionary product that fundamentally boosts the yield and cash flow available from an investment property, changing a negative gearing outlook to one that is positively geared. From the street front it presents as a high quality- single residential home. Its when you look at the floor plan that the revolutionary design becomes clear. What appears to be one dwelling on the outside is in fact two dwellings on the inside, producing two incomes. The reason that dual occupancy is so good is that achievable rents are about 50% higher than for a house of similar value -Located in high demand areas because they are just as affordable as the typical 4 – bedroom investment house If one of the dual occupancy has one of the dwellings vacant for any period, the other will still be producing rent, minimising risk to cash flow – Positive Cash flow and strongly geared from the very first monthly rental payment for most investors Dual occupancy has low outgoings- no strata fees, low council and water rates, which maximises yields and cash flow. – Average investors who are able to borrow 100% will have more net income that previously after all cost are paid. Consider Dual Occupancy for your next investment. Talk to Blue Wave Property Strategies...
