For many Australians, the dream of achieving financial independence and creating choices for retirement revolves around smart property investments. With the right strategy, you can achieve financial independence, choices in retirement and even leave a legacy for generations to come. But where does one begin?
1. Area Selection: The Cornerstone of Long-Term Success
The first step to building a robust property portfolio lies in a meticulous area selection. But this isn’t about merely picking a popular spot on the map; it requires insight, plenty of research, and a trusted team of advisors who understand your ambitions.
Towns with economic stability are the best choice. These areas often have various sources of income, safeguarding your investments against economic downturns. Equally to stability, we emphasise towns with a prediction for capital growth. After all, your investment should not just sustain but thrive. It is the balance of rental income (yield) and value growth (capital gain) that will provide for the best long term outcome. In other words both, the short term income of rental needs to meet the long term income of capital gain.
2. Site Selection: Your Foundation for Financial Growth
Once you have an area in mind, the next pivotal choice revolves around site selection. Remember, not every spot within a goldmine town is gold. You’ll want lots with the right orientation – something that can influence future property value significantly. What do the adjacent sites look like in size and orientation. How close are facilities like shopping, medical and others?
Furthermore, rental income becomes a significant pillar in the pursuit of financial independence. Ensuring your selected site can generate a rental income of 5% or above can be a game-changer. It not only provides a steady stream of income but also ensures your property is in demand.
3. Design Optimization: Tailoring for Maximum Returns
Even in the best areas and sites, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Investing in design optimization ensures that your property doesn’t just fit within the community but stands out. This is where the personalised touch truly matters. It’s not just about bricks and mortar but about creating homes that resonate, ensuring long-term success and growth. Every square meter costs money, so the design should be tailored to the maximum useable space. What are the requirements for the area? What are the climatical decisions that influence the design, including the orientation of the house?
