Property investment for beginners to experts

While stocks and funds may rise and fall, real estate remains one of the best ways to invest your hard earned money and build wealth. After all, property is a tangible asset that cannot disappear overnight and can be insured against disaster. Whether you already own investment properties or you are only just beginning your real estate journey, a property investment consultant in Sydney can help you find the best bargains and build a solid portfolio that will stand up to the test of time. At Ironfish, our team of property investment consultants always go the extra mile so you get the full benefit of our local knowledge and professional expertise.

Finding your strategy

The first step in working with a property investment consultant is determining your personal strategy. During your first appointment with Ironfish in Sydney, one of our property investment consultants will set down with you to do a detailed analysis of your current financial situation, your options for investment both locally and across the country, and go over the potential risks and your potential return on your investment, so you have a realistic expectation of what to expect.

We’ll work with you to develop a plan to purchase an entire portfolio of apartments and/or homes across the country, so you have a steady stream of income from rents as your properties appreciate in value. Ironfish doesn’t believe in ‘flipping’ homes: trying to buy and then sell quickly. It’s very risky and won’t get you the best return on your investment. Instead, your Sydney property investment consultant will help you plan for the long term, with apartments that will make you money in rents as well as appreciating in value as the market rises.

Finding your properties

Once the strategy is settled upon, it’s time to find the right property to start your portfolio. Our Sydney property investment consultants begin their search by looking for properties ready for tenants. While you may pay more upfront for a turnkey apartment or home, so called ‘bargain’ properties or fixer-uppers often wind up costing just as much in the long run once you factor in the amount of work required. We look for apartments in areas convenient to the city centre, to financial districts, and to waterfronts where a property owner can count on a steady demand for long term and short term tenants.

We also look for areas that are due for new development, either public infrastructure or private investment. Our goal is to get our buyers in before the area rises in value so you can buy low and rent out high. The real estate market tends to move in seven to ten year cycles, which your property investment consultant tracks so you can enter the market at the best possible time.
