Making Your Mark in the Real Estate Market

Everybody knows that property is a great way long term way to invest your money. You get a tangible asset that can provide you with a stream of income as a rental or a nest egg to be sold years down the road. Now it’s easier than ever for ordinary Australians to enter the market not only by owning their own home but with investment property in Queensland and other cities across the continent. More people than ever before are moving to cities and looking for rental properties to live in. A wise investment now can mean financial security for decades to come for you and for your family.

Where do I begin?

At Ironfish, an Australian property investment company that has offices across the country, we recommend that our investors build a portfolio of properties. By investing in different cities, you protect yourself from rises and falls in the market, as well as the chance that your property may stand vacant for a month or two.

You should also seek out different types of investment property in Queensland and beyond. There are two main types of investment properties. Appreciation properties are homes or apartments that will experience a rise in value over time, even if they may not be as desirable right now. Rental properties may cost more up front, but will immediately start generating rental income for their owner. By balancing these two types of investments, you get the best of both worlds: paying down your initial loans while still sitting on some great deals that will pay out down the road.

Where do I look?

Once you have an idea for what kind of unit you want, it’s time to begin your search for the right investment property. If you’re looking for a Queensland investment property, you’ll want to look at suburbs in Brisbane and other urban centers. Look for places near the downtown core, the financial district, or along the waterfront since those areas will always be in demand.

Make sure that you consider the historic real estate data for the areas that you are looking at. Real estate markets tend to move in seven year cycles and you want to be sure that you’re purchasing your investment property in Queensland when prices are at a low. A property investment company can help you find a history of prices in the area and interpret the data to make sure you’re getting the best deal.

What happens next?

Once you’ve chosen your investment properties, whether they’re homes, apartments, units, or townhouses, it’s time to sit back and let the rental incomes roll in.  In addition to our work in helping you invest in the right property, Ironfish also offers a full suite of services to help you get the most from that investment, including property management and more.
