Four reasons to buy in a cool market

Posted by Katrina Parrington on July 27, 2016

It’s a common mistake made by many first-time investors – delaying an acquisition due to a cooling market. So why can it be wise to buy in a downturn? It’s widely known that property markets are cyclical and will experience ebbs and flows. However, when any given market experiences a slowdown, many investors, particularly novice investors, will defer buying a property because they’re deterred by the widespread negative sentiment. Acquiring an investment property in a cooler market can be highly beneficial, though.

Mum and Dad investors are the lifeblood of Australia’s rental accommodation

Posted by Katrina Parrington on April 1, 2016

Federal, state, and local governments are flat out trying to fund the Nation’s essential infrastructure let alone rental accommodation. The percentage of Australian residential dwellings that are funded by governments has shrunk to a miserly 2.9% per year. Mum-and-dad property investors need to continue to be encouraged to add to the rental pool of Australia’s growing population. According to official ATO records, 30% of all Australian residential dwellings receive rental income. The other 70% of dwellings are occupied by the owner (whether mortgaged or debt free).

Posted by Katrina Parrington on February 24, 2016

In proposing reforms to negative gearing structures, any Government in power should consider a long-term approach and monitor any changes and their effects on the economy very closely, before pulling the negatively geared rug from under the feet of investors.

Posted by Katrina Parrington on February 15, 2016

Is buying a property now cheaper than paying rent?

Posted by Katrina Parrington on February 9, 2016

Despite what the media has been portraying it is a tough rental market at the moment. There are still so many tenants who are vacating properties to buy their own properties. With the current interest rates at their lowest, paying a mortgage is now cheaper than paying rent. I have now heard this from numerous tenants. They may not be buying in the same suburbs they are leasing in but, they tell me they have the chance to stop paying someone else’s mortgage and invest in their own with more security. There are so many new buildings and developments happening in Sydney.
