Why Invest For Property In Australia

Author : alaric saltzman

Australia is an outstanding country in terms of lifestyle and climate. It offers many economical and political advantages for today’s overseas property investors. Australia offers profitable opportunities of Property investment for sale and purchase in current property hotspots.

With a current backlog of 200,000 residential properties needed, a number that increases by a further 30,000 homes per year, an undersupply of developed land and a shortage of funding for development companies, there is a serious shortage of housing in Australia, no wonder many experts call it a housing crisis. Through natural population increases and new arrivals to The Lucky Country, Australia's population grows by about 400,000 per year. This alone demands an extra 133,000 homes a year, assuming an average of 3 people per household.

As a result of this continuous demand, property prices and rentals will rise steadily. Along with strong demand from renters, and with generous assistance from the government to assist supply, our investment property concept is the envy of the developed world.

The following are the main reasons that make Australia such a strong investment market today:

• Great, temperate climate, with an amazing average 3,500 hours of sunshine per year. A good climate gives rise to a pleasant outdoor lifestyle and healthy living.
• Property value has increased an average 8% per year over the past 100 years.
• Very beautiful and clean beaches, tropical rainforest, rugged mountains, deserts and sun-baked horizons that continue to attract people to the country as a whole.
• Stable both economically and politically, combined to create a peaceful and secure lifestyle option.
• GDP on par with most European countries. Australia’s strong economic growth rates are higher than most OECD countries, including the US and UK.
• English is the national language and the legal and business environments are based on the British system.
• Well established legal and property buying process, similar to that of the UK.
• High capital returns of around 30% or more in key investment areas such as the Western Coast.
• Fantastic, healthy lifestyle with abundance of outdoor pursuits, eg. swimming, fishing, cycling, jogging, bushwalking and more.
• High rental demand due to currently high property prices.
• Interest only mortgages on offer for 5 or even 10 year periods, making property purchase a more viable option.
• Population growth and rising incomes ensure the demand for housing outpaces supply, causing prices to rise.
• Regulated investment markets that are transparent and low risk in the Australian arena
• Favorable Sterling exchange rate (typically 1 GBP = 1.8 AU$) allows you to buy more for your money in Australia.

The only real risk for new property investors is in trying to go it alone, and making costly mistakes simply through a lack of research or knowledge.
