Property Selection


Sydney house and apartment prices continued to rebound in the first quarter of 2020. Indications are an end of falling prices, with values growing annually for the first time in two years – houses grew by 6.8 per cent and units by 3 per cent leading into 2020. House prices continued to rebound faster than units, although houses have more ground to recover considering they led the downturn.


Melbourne’s house price recovery gathered momentum leading into first quarter 2020. Melbourne property investment recovery remains uneven with substantial price rises concentrated at the upper-end, led by the city, the inner east and inner south. Houses have regained almost all of the value that was lost during the slump, with just under $6,800 left to recoup.


Brisbane property prices has provided owner occupiers and investors consistent results over the past seven years. Population growth and a strong state economy is expected to see Brisbane housing demand to remain steady in 2020. Brisbane is seen by many property analysts as a slowly rising market and this consistency is a good factor for investors.

Gold Coast

The Gold Coast property market for most of 2020 will continue on an upward trend. The city is heading towards a big year as its population is growing at a reasonable rate and billions of dollars have gone into infrastructure spend over the last seven years. The city is reaping the rewards from it now


Perth’s property market with prices predicted to rebound in 2020, The state government recently announced a significant housing investment package and made changes to the financial assistance it provides first-home buyers. Not only will this boost the construction sector

Negative Gearing

Negative gearing occurs when annual interest payable on loan used to acquire the investment plus allowable expenses incurred exceeds annual income. In other words an investment is negatively geared if the interest payable on the loan to purchase exceeds the income (rent, dividends or interest) received from the investment (after expenses) resulting in a negative cash flow.

Property Investment and a Secure Future

Accumulating property and building a portfolio is the primary goal of most investors, but overnight success can take years. It is important to plan for the future and not get so caught up in the process that you could end up failing to act.

It’s extremely important to get moving and do something as the cost of doing nothing can be very expensive.

Whatever your age or stage of life, property has both the flexibility and the wealth-building power to deliver an earlier, more secure, or more prosperous retirement.

Bricks and mortar give you security and peace of mind. Financial independence gives you choices, and above all a feeling of achievement and security.

What Our Investors Say About Us

Dean and Lisa (Sydney)

Apart from the purchasing of an investment property in Melbourne, Australian Residential has been fantastic in their willingness to help us with property managers, and any other advice and services that we need some support with.

Patrick (Melbourne)

Just a quick email to thank you all for your assistance over the weekend. I wanted to say how professionally organised the whole experience was. It certainly made life very easy for us, so again, thank you for your time and effort. Myself and Cheryl had a great weekend, and we are very happy with the outcome. I’m certain it will be the first of many. Now that we have our own little piece of Queensland, I’m told we are now honorary “Banana Benders?!!!

Mike and Virginia (Sydney)

Two years ago we decided to invest in property, with particular interest in Queensland I was particularly impressed with Australian Residential and the services they provide. I made arrangements to meet so we could have a chat. In an industry dominated by “real estate salesmen” It was refreshing to deal with someone who was trustworthy, didn’t fill me with false promise and who was on my side and working for me. I highly recommend the services of Australian Residential, and have personally given their name and number to many friends and family so that they too can begin to utilise the expertise and professionalism of Peter and the team.

Melinda & Daniel (Melbourne)

Thanks for all your help & thoughts today in educating us in what investment would be appropriate for us.

Nothing was too much trouble & you went to great lengths to ensure we were clear on every aspect of what we purchased.
Real estate is certainly different in QLD that VIC!

Michelle & Gary (Central Coast NSW)

Thank you for making today a very enjoyable experience we were very nervous about taking such a huge step in our life. You have done a great deal to make us feel at ease today and we thank you for the knowledge you have imparted upon us.

Sarah and Adam (Adelaide)

Thank you for your time and effort on our visit for the purchase of our property, it made our choice so much easier and to help put our minds at ease.

Peter and Natalie (Brisbane)

I have absolutely no hesitations in recommending my friends and family to Australian Residential as you have reached all of my expectations in assisting us to secure a new investment property.

Alan and Cindy (Sydney)

Thank you for your assistance and guidance in enabling us to decide on our new house and land package. I thought trying to buy in Brisbane while living in Sydney would be stressful but you made it all so easy and well within my budget.

Kang and Nuan (Melbourne)

You were very helpful in recommending areas to look at that met our criteria and the real estate agency you referred us to offered a wide range of properties across the market for us to evaluate. This saved us a lot of time and allowed us more quickly to conclude that the house we found was right for us. We felt you offered valuable commentary on what we were looking at and you helped us understand much better the value of property in the Brisbane and Gold Coast markets.

Frequently Asked Questions

Interest rates have been falling but what if they rise?
When taking out a loan from a Bank you have the option of staying on at a lower variable rate of interest or paying a slightly higher interest rate and having it fixed for up to five years. Some investors like the security of a fixed rate but this can cause issues if you wish to sell, seek the advice of a qualified finance professional when organising finance.

Do I need a large deposit to purchase an investment property?
As you know, when you bought your first home, you had to come up with a cash deposit of up to 20% of the purchase price, and also be able to afford the monthly mortgage repayments of many hundreds of dollars. If this was the same for buying an investment property, nobody would ever be able to afford it. Thankfully, in most cases, its not!

If you have owned your own home for a few years, you will have built up quite a bit of equity in your property. You will have paid off some of the loan, and there’s a good chance that your property has increased in value too.

Instead of finding a cash deposit, the Bank/Lender (subject to approvals) will allow you to use the equity built up in your home as security on your investment property

What if we can’t find a tenant for our investment property?

Vacancy has two main causes-firstly, the amount of rent being asked, and secondly, the location of the property. If you can’t find a tenant at the advertised rent then lower the rent until a suitable tenant is found. A good property manager understands this and will direct you accordingly. Your rental should be in a good location where there is a demand for rental properties; e.g. close to transport, shops, schools and employment.

The 70% home ownership ratio is the main reason for the security, reliability, and predictability of residential property as an investment. Owner occupiers, people who own their own homes, do not panic and rush to sell as investors do in some other sectors such as industrial and commercial real estate, or as company shareholders do when times get tough. The residential property market is not dominated by investors. This provides a built-in safety net for the residential property market. Residential property is the only investment market not dominated by investors. It forms a barrier against substantial down-side in the market place.

That is a unique feature of residential property as opposed to all other investment vehicles. Everybody must be housed, whether they rent, or are owner occupiers. No matter who the occupier is, the capital growth is still generated for the owner. The safety of residential property is underpinned by owner occupiers who do not sell if a market lacks strength. They need more compelling reasons, are better placed to hold through softer markets and continue to need a roof over their heads.
