Buying a property as an investment is different from a home as it’s a business rather than an emotional decision, so it’s important to approach it this way. Like any property purchase however, there will be a lot of decisions to make. We understand your time is precious. Here’s how we can help make the process as fast, straightforward and stress-free as possible:
Deciding to sell an investment property is a big decision. Whether it’s a short-term investment or a long-term rental property, knowing when to sell is a key aspect of your success as an investor. If you sell it too soon you could miss a spike in the market cycle. Leave it too
A good property manager is worth their weight in gold. Whether it’s your first investment or you own a large portfolio of properties, we strongly advise using a qualified and experienced manager to look after your valuable assets. They’ll take all the stress out of managing your properties, leaving you free to do the things you enjoy.
The first step is getting a real estate agent who can help you find a property that fits your criteria, in the area you want and for the right price. Remember, the numbers need to stack up when you’re buying an investment property. You may already have an agent in mind, but if not, you can call your nearest Professionals office and they will put you in touch with the right person.
Speak to the bank and make sure you know how much money you have for a deposit, how much you can afford to borrow and if you have funds for any renovations that might be required. You need to have a clear understanding of the overall costs involved so there are no surprises.
Understanding current market conditions are essential to making a wise purchase. Is now a good time to buy, or should you wait? Our agents are experts in their areas and can offer a wealth of market information.
We can help you find the property that provides all of your non-negotiables and hopefully a few extras. Then, we’ll guide you through the purchase and settlement process. You’ll also need to take legal advice. Once your payment has been confirmed, you can pick up the keys to your new property!
We’re here to help you every step of the way when buying your next investment property.
