Each development has its own research requirements. Beware the curse of knowledge, as excess focus in one area can blind us to other equally important aspects. As a basic minimum, here are some of the considerations that we explore, before even sharing any projects:-
DEVELOPER DUE DILIGENCE
InvestorGroup works with the developer to secure Local Area Research suburb, infrastructure, amenities, council plans.
Estate Developer Analysis of Estate plans (if in a masterplanned development estate)
Build Quality Analysis of builder home designs, scrutinise schedule of finishes, establish achievable completion times
Beyond extensive comparative market analysis (CMA) often as part of a negotiation, we will Pre-negotiate pricing and special offers for InvestorGroup investors
We aim to achieve an average Capital Growth Target to double every 10 years (targeted annual growth average - 7.2% compound growth min.)
Rental Return - Target Average - Minimum 5% p.a.
Depreciation - Maximized Depreciation reports are organized for InvestorGroup investors
Vacancy Rate in the Area - 0 - 3.0%
Property Management - InvestorGroup will always recommend an experienced local property manager. (If required).
Where city driven, the location should benefit from:-
~ Within 10-20 km of a CBD (can vary slightly depending on the city)
~ Amenities Close to shopping, schools, recreational activities, pool, parks, playgrounds
~ Employment Convenient proximity to local employment centres and within a 30 minute drive of a CBD
~ Transport Within a 10 minute drive to public transport (car convenience is a priority)
~ Security All properties need to be secure as well as in "safe" areas.
~ Parking Very important. Single LUG (lock up garage)
~ Tenant Profile Singles and couples, plus families with maximum 1-2 children
