WOULD YOU BELIEVE this is a good time for savvy investors to be looking for an investment property?

Terry Ryder, a specialist researcher/writer on residential property for over 35 years, released an article recently with answers to some property questions people are asking during this period of uncertainty.

In particular, he says "I think this is a good time to be looking for an investment property. There will be opportunities to buy well in the current climate." and "Just be careful to select a location with the credentials for long-term growth."

Let me repeat his expert comment: “Just be careful to select a location with the credentials for long-term growth.”.


Why is location so important?

  • more and more people will continue to work from home once this pandemic settles us back to our new normal.
  • the trend of working remotely and making lifestyle changes is on the increase with people moving away from capital cities,

which will

  • strengthen property growth in regional areas.


So, what does this mean?

This means that savvy investors who are in the position to buy investment properties now should do just that.

The property pictured here is by a builder who has been in business for over 30 years.  That means security.

Why this location? Newcastle & the Lower Hunter is acknowledged as having the leading economic growth in Australia.



The current climate puts buyers in a position of power, because of low interest rates and the inevitable increase in building costs and land prices.   

With an total turnkey price of well under $500,000, investors should think about upgrades, which also make their property that bit more special for tenants.


Why a new house?

  • Stamp duty savings
  • Greater depreciation
  • Less maintenance
  • 6-year structural warranty.

Get this right and it can be as easy as buy, relax & enjoy


At Oliver Myers Properties, we do understand the uncertainty that the current COVID-19 situation puts us in, and we are here to assist through the whole process.

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!
