Every investor is looking for cash flow positive properties. But the reality is, these types of properties are increasingly few and far between. Generally, if you can find them, they’re out in the middle of nowhere, with little to no capital growth.

In the most general terms, an investment property should become neutrally geared within the first few years. To do this you need to increase the rent on your property regularly. Of course, a lot of landlords don’t do this for fear of alienating great tenants and having to re let the property year after year.

There are scores of professionals at the ready to advise investors to purchase an apartment off-the-plan.

While a Buyers Agent can make it look easy, buying a property can be hard work. And depending on your target property, what often starts as the prospect of a bright new future, can quickly turn into a despondent grind to a seemingly distant finish line.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Armed with the right information, support and advice, you can be sure to pay just what is needed to secure your property goals.

With investors absorbing the changes that APRA has made to lending, there’s never been a better time to dive back into the property market with the help of a buyers advocate.

But with overseas investors becoming a convenient target, and hot media issue for driving capital growth – it’s important to look back, as well as forward before we point the finger of fear and blame. History would tell us with some certainty that property growth has been driven by supply and demand. Put simply, where there is scarcity, the price of property will be driven upwards.
