Is now the right time?

Is now the right time to invest in real estate?

I believe the answer is YES.

Why, you ask?

Tenant vacancy rates in Newcastle and the Hunter are down. Prices are realistic and the infrastructure is strong.

Mainstream news is mostly rehashed news based on major Capital City information and rarely focuses on the performance of regional NSW.

Buying now in the right location where prices are realistic, infrastructure is solid, rental return is good and vacancy rates are low is the secret to smart investment.

Where are these locations you ask?

Hotspotting's Terry Ryder on 19 November said “Demand in smaller capitals and solid regional markets will lead to property price growth:”

“Regional New South Wales, as I noted in an earlier column, has strong growth markets right across the state. In some, prices have already risen strongly in the past 6-12 months, while others have the potential for growth based on the current demand trends”.

Sasha Karen in Smart Property Investment (19/11/18) stated “The Hunter region saw vacancy rates decline by 0.3 of a percentage point to 1.6 per cent. Major Hunter city Newcastle saw a decline of 0.9 of a percentage point down to 1.8 per cent”.

Tony took his time to meet my requirements

When looking for a property for my parents, I was introduced to Tony. After I described my requirements, he took the time to show me areas that fulfilled my requirements, and then specific locations, floor plans and similar new homes that he believed, based on my criteria, would be suitable. Thank you Tony.

Willing to go the extra mile

Tony and his team were willing to go the extra mile to show us properties in new and growing areas that would be suitable to include in our investment portfolio. Following our earlier success in securing a new build on land in the Newcastle region, we were keen to investigate other locations which would provide capital growth and good rental return with a low vacancy factor. His team thoroughly researched all those requirements and provided great options.

Making Life Easy for us Landlords!

Tony and his team assisted us in buying a new off-the-plan home for investment purposes. We were given plenty of information on the location and trends in the area, and the types of properties that were popular with tenants. Tony has many trusted contacts in real estate and associated industries, and referred us to a quantity surveyor who has helped us claim a lot more depreciation than we thought we could, and to a great property manager that is making our life easy for us as landlords. It’s been a very successful relationship!
