High capital growth potential with highest building standards.

Appealing to both renters & owner occupiers

Investment properties should appeal to both renters and owner occupiers. The long term success of a property investment will depend on it’s appeal to home buyers of the future as new property deductions diminish.

High Quality

Property must be new to qualify for full depreciation allowance. Highest growth area. Preference for brick and tile. Excellent transport facilities and close to schools. Spacious in area, inside and out. Approved by Banks and Insurance Companies.


Location is key to real estate appreciation. We always consider the accessibility, appearance, and amenities of a neighborhood as well as plans for future development. Proximity to public transport, shopping centres, restaurants including distance from CBD. We find out if there are any changes coming to the area, employment rates and new housing starts.  Before you buy, you need to know everything about the location you are buying in.

Excellent Builder Developer Reputation

Qualities we look for in builders and developers include, Quality Durable Construction That’s Built to Last, Excellent Communication Skills and Follow up, Experience in the Home Owners Construction Industry, A Positive Reputation and History of Satisfied Customers.

Property  Investment Research

Investment in property has been made easier by ARPP offering access and referral to a range of services from a panel of affiliated independant organisations, who specialise in property investment. These include professional consultants and qualified specialists in financial advice, accountant services, property insurance for investors, licensed real estates, conveyancing and rental management.

Why ARPP rejects a property?

Finding the properties which we believe will best serve our clients is an exhaustive process which involves constantly scouring and searching the market. Real Estates that Australian Residential refer to are investment property specialists, they reject far more properties than we are prepared to recommend to our clients. They must meet our stringent criteria. Just as important is the after sales follow up. Right through to the property settlement, tenancy and beyond.


Transparency in Costs, Builders and Developers Who Stand Behind Their Work.We want a builder/developer who will work with you through the design process to find more efficient design and build solutions that effect cost and/or time savings, without compromising the quality, and then passes these savings onto you.

The rentability test

It’s important as a landlord to remember that your target audience is renters. While an investor might be interested in certain features, your aim is to appeal to tenants, who typically want somewhere that is comfortable, low-maintenance and good value for money.

Track record

Does the builder or developer have a proven track record? Many properties can look quite okay on first inspection but it is only with an in depth analysis of the building and construction that a complete picture is available. A proven track record of excellence in construction is vital in selecting the correct property to purchase.
