Why invest in the Australian Property market?
With the recent slumps in China's property market, some of the canniest investors have been withdrawing their money from the domestic property market. So where should they invest?
The Australian property market has both strong yields & capital. The rental yields from investment-grade property are very competitive internationally, often between 3.5% - 5%. Capital growth potential is also strong. Due to Australia's liability, education & legal systems, clean air and natural beauty - Migration to Australia continues to flourish. In turn, home values climb and construction battles to keep up with consumer demand.
Unlike China where an investor purchases 'Land Use Rights,' and effectively leases residential land for 70 years - an investment in Australian property can be passed from generation to generation.
"The key motivations for buying property overseas are for children's education, wealth, security and preparation for retirement."
