type of property gives me the best return on investment
There is a reason agent’s say
location, location, location. The property that will give the
biggest return on investment (ROI) is the property in the best
location. The question of what is a good location can be driven
by many factors and is not always an easy or obvious question
to answer. Set a criteria for what you are looking for in a location
and don’t compromise.
long do you hold a property to maximise your return on
Property is a long term investment.
Investors who buy and sell properties in a short period of time
will see most of their profits burnt up by the buying a selling
costs. It is a nice idea but not realistic. To achieve the best
return on your investment it is best to hold onto the property
for at least a couple of years so that it has time to appreciate
off-plan properties generally considered to be a better
investment than finished property?
It depends if you want a return immediately
or if you are willing to wait a few years. If you are willing
to wait then the off-plan option is usually much more profitable
as you can buy the property at a discount price and not have
to pay a mortgage while the property is being built. Also off-plan
property will be brand new when completed and wont carry the
problems many older properties carry.
property gives the best rental return?
It is always a good idea to sit back
and think about what sort of property you would want to rent.
The most common answer is something of good quality and in a
good location. These simple rules should be applied to the purchase
of your investment property.
vacant land a good investment?
If the land has Development and/or
Building Approvals or is in a very good location with development
applications in place then land can be a good investment. If
it is just a block of land with no approvals or infrastructure
then you need to ask yourself
"Who is going to buy this block off me when I am ready to
sell?". Vacant Land can be a high risk investment and should
be researched before committing to it.
are the risks involved when investing in a growing property
The most obvious risk is going to
be in the fact that there may not be a strong infrastructure
in place and that the control of builders and developers is very
weak. It is always advisable to get a good lawyer in the country
you are buying a property and make sure you are dealing with
a reputable agent and not someone you met on the plane.
do I ensure I have a diversified portfolio?
With any investment it is always
more sensible to diversify your portfolio and spread the risk.
In property this would mean not only buying in different locations
but also buying different types of property. Some property might
have strong capital growth whilst another has better rental returns
and in fact is cash flow positive. Diversification has always
been the key to any successful investment portfolio.
I sell a Development Property before completion?
This strategy has its inherent risks.
Property is a long term investment and the strategy that you
can buy and sell before a projects completion and make a lot
of money fast is risky. You will see the largest returns if you
hold the property for more than 1 - 2 years after the completion
of the Development.
