Top Marks for Unstoppable City

The report card for Brisbane property continues to impress…straight A’s are becoming the norm for this leading investment location. Brisbane looks set to continue its top of the class status with the latest report from CoreLogic Data revealing that 90 suburbs in the Greater Brisbane area achieved above average house price growth in the last quarter of 2016.

According to the report, median house prices have soared by almost 25 per cent in some Brisbane suburbs, defying slowdowns in home values in other major cities. Experts have dubbed the sunshine capital the ‘teflon’ city, with Brisbane bucking the national trends and seeing house prices soar.

In one suburb alone, the median house price increased by 24.6 per cent with South Brisbane leaping to a staggering $1.76 million in the December quarter.

Of course, these results are no surprise to Massland. Our strategy of honing in on the most lucrative investment locations continues to pay off.

We’ve spent years refining our method to identify high achieving suburbs that tick all the boxes…high growth population, easy access to the CBD and a comprehensive offering of quality amenities such as schools, retail stores and recreational facilities.

Brisbane has gained momentum as a property powerhouse, and experts are singing the praises of the quiet achiever. Here’s what Terry Ryder, founder of hotspotting.com.au had to say recently:

“Meanwhile, Brisbane chugs along, largely under the radar of national media – but not property investors who are smart enough to do their own research. A recent national survey found that Brisbane is the No.1 choice for property investors who plan to buy in 2017. Cheaper prices and much higher rental yields, compared to the two biggest cities, are strong attractions for nationally-focused investors.

Having just completed my latest analysis of sales data, I can confirm that the leading precinct for market activity is the Moreton Bay Region in Brisbane’s far north, where affordability, infrastructure and proximity to jobs nodes are key factors.”

People in the trenches achieving great results…

Every week we get calls from graduates needing support and advice as they work on putting together great deals.

Here are a couple from graduates all over Australia who are in the trenches….

  • Simon from Canberra is working with his brother in law on a Joint Venture deal.
  • Roy is working on a profitable splitter in WA. He has a keen seller and is marketing to sell the back block to first home buyers or investors by partnering with a builder to create a house and land package.
  • Stephen is working on the last pieces of a Development Approval for 7 townhouses in Queensland.  He is carefully looking over the due diligence and talking with council to ensure he has a smooth operational works approval and realises the profits he believes possible.
  • Laura and her husband James are negotiating with 3 owners in NSW.  They are wanting to amalgamate the blocks together and pass it as a short option onto a developer in the area who is keen on apartments.

These people are out there and taking positive steps towards their goals… and a great example of the results achievable from implementing the strategies and skills gained as a Massland graduate.

Their lives are changing for the better…this could be you!

See you at the finish line…

New high for median house price   

The Brisbane property market is the talk of backyard barbies and around the water cooler with the latest results taking the property values to a new high never before seen.

The median price has hit an impressive $655,000, with the latest figures from the December 2016 quarter from the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ).

According to REIQ chief executive Antonia Mercorella, the Brisbane residential house market is a dependable performer.

“This is consistent, sustainable growth that the Brisbane market has become known for and it is great that it’s such a solid performer,” she said.

This latest news is sure to keep all eyes looking north as Melbourne and Sydney investors scramble to enter a market that is both affordable and producing incredible results.

Not only do Brisbane properties offer value for money, but the city is prospering with a strong, growing local economy. The city’s $146 billion economy (source: Brisbane City Council – Key Economic Facts 2016) is predicted to grow to more than $217 billion by 2031, and is recognised as a key driver of the Australian economy as it enters its 26th year of continuous growth. (source: Austrade 2017)

Brisbane’s appeal is also driving families back to the city with couples wanting to start a family, or couples with young children leaving the rat race of the mega cities for a much easier lifestyle.

Of course, it’s not just lifestyle that has people turning to Brisbane, it’s financial common sense, especially for Sydney-siders. According to Uno Home Loans data analysis:

  • Rents are up to $700 cheaper in Brisbane than Sydney
  • Stamp duty is significantly lower
  • Median house price is almost half of Sydney

Families are ditching Sydney for this reason, buying large spacious homes in great areas for the same price as a cramped, run down terrace in Sydney. Many are finding they have to choose between adding to their family or upgrading their home because, “financially it’s not doable.”

A couple like Andrew and Karen found that trying to upgrade their Sydney home was just too much of a challenge. Faced with the opportunity to sell their Sydney fixer upper for a four bedroom, two bathroom house with a pool on a 900 sqm block with $200,000 in change, it ended up a no-brainer for the family to move to Brisbane.

It’s certainly hard to disagree with CoreLogic research director Tim Lawless, “Brisbane’s market has everything going for it.”

Another Massland success story…

It’s always a pleasure to share success stories with you.

Take Scott for example. He attended Conclave with us and immediately set about finding a development site he could sink his teeth into.

He optioned a site that had the capacity for an estimated 23 – 27 townhouses. He has done thorough Due Diligence on the site and currently is working with his Town Planner on submitting a DA into council for 27 townhouses. In his words ’23 will work really well and 27 would be a bonus.’

He is interviewing builders and getting firm quotes but most importantly he has Expressions of Interest on 50% of the future townhouses. He can use these EOIs as pre-sales when he needs finance for construction.

Scott is working hard but enjoying the journey and learning a lot as he works through the development process. With a conservative profit between $1.8 – $2 million dollars, it’s an incredible outcome for Scott and his family.

The temperatures this summer have been off the charts with the soaring mercury almost matching the sizzling hot property market.

Most of Australia has spent the last few months trying to stay out of the crazy hot weather. With record high temperatures all over the country, most of us were asking ‘how much hotter can it get?’

It’s the same with the property market…there is no end in sight for the soaring highs that are being achieved through property investing.

The latest news from the December quarter shows the once exclusive $1m suburb club is booming. According to property analysts, Core Logic, the number of suburbs in Australia with a medium home value of $1 million or more, has skyrocketed in the last five years…it’s off the charts!

The analysis uncovered that there was a 160 per cent rise in the number of suburbs with an average of $1m over the five years to last December. Today there are 750 suburbs across the country with a medium $1 million price – compared to the 275 suburbs five years ago.

What does this mean for you? It means you’re running out of time as prices climb…the time to act is NOW while you still can.

Life flies by so fast with work, family, deadlines, bills and basic day-to-day living.  You get to the end of the year and reflect on your choices; and the things you haven’t achieved.

Property smashes growth and return

It’s that lurking figure that underpins how much our money is really worth…good old inflation. It has a way of sneaking up year after year, making every dollar you have worth less when you come to buy something.

Keeping up with inflation is a tough gig…and for many investors it’s a juggling act trying to figure out how much your hard earned investments are earning and what that means in real terms.

The holy grail of investing is the magic combination of both growth and return. It sounds elusive, but when it comes to property, you’re tapping into both.

WIth the right property, in the right location, your capital growth is as close to a sure thing as you’ll find. And with most properties doubling in value every ten years or so, it’s a no-brainer for growth.

The added bonus is that returns are incredibly good, with rent now outpacing inflation. A recent report by the Tenants Union of NSW published in the Australian Financial Review shows that rents are actually smashing inflation.

According to the Rent Tracker, rents have shot past the inflation rate, rising 5 per cent in the year to September 2016. At the same time, the number of renters has also jumped by the same amount…more and more people competing to rent YOUR property!

There’s never been a better time to invest in property. Growth in capital is soaring, rents are outpacing inflation and the population is outpacing supply. WIN-WIN-WIN.

Every year it’s the same story – Stockland, Devine and Mirvac all put up their prices by 10% – 15% on January 1. Next January will be no different. With prices going crazy on anything in Brisbane within a 50 minute radius of the CBD, it makes perfect sense.  Investors from all over Australia have switched on to how undervalued this region is and how the demographics are booming. 2017 is going to be a stellar year for the Brisbane Property market.

Let’s face it – Massland’s Bestow house and land packages at $426,700 are exceptional buying. With full turnkey construction making it tenant ready, it’s outstanding value so close to Australia’s third largest capital city. If you’ve been putting it off – your time needs to be now.

A 10% price increase will see you paying an extra $42,670 in just over a month’s time – be smart and keep the money in your pocket. Do your Christmas shopping early and give yourself an AAP gift.

My expert team are here to help you every step of the way – USE them. Get them working for you! Crunch the numbers with them and make it happen now. Call Leon on 07 5531 7822 or email enquiries@massland.com.au don’t be complacent and postpone your AAP until next year and pay the price hikes.

I urge you use the rest of 2016 wisely and get your AAP kick started TODAY. 

Contact Leon, your expert investment representative – and get ahead of the masses.

Couple

If it has, I’m not at all surprised. I’m more convinced than ever that the Great Australian Dream is a myth and for many people, has turned into a nightmare.

So what’s happened here? We’ve had it ingrained since we were kids that our goal in life should be to buy a house on a quarter acre block and pay it off right? And we’d do this by locking into a 25 year mortgage with the banks rubbing their hands together after selling us this myth.

Question: Who gets rich in this scenario? (Hint, it’s not you)

Answer: The banks (they’ve been selling this dream for years)

castle

That’s right folks, the Great Australian Dream is a myth that was sold to us by the banks. And it makes us pretty miserable because once we’re locked into that 25 year mortgage, we can’t simply can’t get ahead.

It time for change and property is one of the most lucrative, straight forward ways I know to rewind the nightmare. What are you waiting for?

Why not take control of your future and take the leap into property investing? Turn the myth on its head and proactively buy more property – taking advantage of the huge gains to be made by a market constantly on the rise.

Why not tap into a systematic, proven system – my Automatic Acquisition Plan (AAP) that takes you on the path to 10 properties debt free in 10 years.

Take action and get in touch with my team. Call my expert investment representatives on 07 5531 7822 or emailing enquiries@massland.com.au, it really is that simple.
