So over the coming years Australia’s Baby Boomers are going to hand over more than $6 trillion to their families!! Can you believe it? That’s not a small amount of cash. How do we know this? The latest census and our good friends at the Australian Bureau of Statistics have their fingers on the pulse, and this is just massive for property investors – both current and future ones. I’ll tell you what… We are headed for paradise (property investors that is). As long as you pay attention and understand the possible changes and movements projected to unfold in the near future, you’ll thank your lucky stars you were a property investor.
There’s a lot of tension in the market place right now. But there’s a lot of tension at all phases of investing in real estate, and at all parts of the cycle. Some tensions just feel better than others! Right now is an incredibly important time to do the maths correctly on your assets, and to do your research and due diligence on the location of your assets, or assets to be. Are you delivering the best result for your bank account? Are your properties the best possible version of themselves?
The average Aussie is worth $532,000! That’s right, if you’re not near that figure, you’re behind the average – and I want you to pick up your game! We are the 13th richest country on planet earth, so you either play at the level that the country finds itself in, or you get left behind and live in relative poverty. Lifestyle can be a brutal sport, but this is the game we find ourselves in. With inflation getting set to hit 30 year highs, investors more than ever need to know the rules of the game in a sport where interest rates are rising, cost of living is rising, which means rents are rising – and who collects the rents?! That’s right, the investor.
Right now, everyone wants a slice of the real estate pie, the problem is that many investors don’t know where to start. This is because 82 per cent of Australians and Kiwis don’t have a wealth plan. Only a measly one per cent actually end up wealthy, with a mere three per cent classed as financially secure.
Let’s relate the concept of time back to real estate. There are still so many property investors out there struggling to create wealth purely because they have a false relationship with time. The good news is if that’s you, I’m here to shock you into action.
As property investors we are all in the business of building wealth, and that means building a well-balanced real estate portfolio of houses and apartments. Now apartment purchasing is a bit of an art form – but if you get it right you can expect to receive high rental returns of five to six per cent. However, this will only be achieved if you buy a property that is better than the market average.
