Investing in property is a popular way to build wealth, and there are many reasons Queenslanders invest in property. Whether it’s to set yourself up for retirement, gain wealth through capital growth and extra income from rental returns or for tax benefits.
When looking for an investment property, you will need to consider how much you can afford, what kind of rental return you can expect and the features of the property to determine if the property is likely to offer capital growth, and be an effective part of your investment strategy.
Of course, like all investment strategies, investing in property comes with its own risks and expenses. Property can be considered a relatively secure long-term investment, but before purchasing you should consider things such as:
- Fees associated with the purchase of the property and home loan, including stamp duty, legal fees, property inspection fees and loan establishment fees
- Ongoing property costs, including rates, insurance and body corporate fees (if you purchase a unit or apartment)
- Rental income – whether incoming rental returns are at the price you had in mind, or what to do between tenants
- The value of the property over time
- Your gearing strategy and any tax implications. We can put you in touch with a financial planner if you’d like to discuss gearing on your property.
