Investors Checklist



As always, your unique circumstance must be taken into account before looking into investing in either residential or commercial property.
Although it is a strategy many people have chosen Australia-wide, we recommend the appropriate advisors are involved in the decision (Conveyancer, accountant and financial planner).
Investing in property can be a good way to help increase your net wealth and can be part of a suitable tax strategy.
Property investment has the option of providing returns based on cash flow (rent can provide a steady rate of income) or capital gains as the property increases in value.
As with any investment, you should understand how the investment works, the returns being generated (usually determined by the risk associated with the property) and the costs associated.
Legal and Tax advice is always recommended, as the more information on hand, the more informed your decision is on what type of investment works best for you.
Some checklist items you can consider are;
  1. Set your goals for your property investment goals.
  2. Understand your budget and organise finances.
