Owning property as an asset
Many Australians believe that owning their own home is the biggest and best financial decision they can make because they don’t have to pay rent and the value normally goes up over time (long term investment approach). Our series of information and education guides are aimed to educate you about various aspects of owning property to live in as well as how to get the most value out of it as a landlord and investor.
With our property investment education guides we take a similar approach to understanding the potential return on investment of a property just as we would forecast future potential returns if you started your own business.
Selling and buying property are some of the biggest transactions that most people go through in their life and they often only happen once so we’ve created educational material to help you understand the stages of the sales and change of title process but also use real estate as examples in our training courses.
Releasing equity in your home to invest in property
If you have own your own property for some time you can probably make some fresh property investments without any savings (although it’s always better to have a buffer). In this guide we outline a scenario that is simple to understand and may help you act and become a property investor!
If you have a property that is at least 450m2 of land you may be able to earn an income from your own home and we’re not talking about renting out a tent in your backyard using AirBNB! Building a granny flat enables you to build a property cheaply yet get a good rental return.
