Property Options

The various property investment options.

While there’s an infinite number of ways to make money using real estate, it’s likely the property investment strategy being implemented is a variation of the five options outlined below.

Maximising your property investment returns:

Typically, the most profitable property investments are made when you tailor the needs of the person using your property to the appropriate investing strategy, rather than the other way around.

If you already own property investments, then the key to increasing your returns is to better serve the needs of your client. For example, if you have a tenant then look for ways to increase the rent that also provides your tenant with more enjoyment from your property.

Investment Property

A good example is the installation of ceiling fans in a house that has poor ventilation. If the tenant agrees, then once the fans are operational then you can justify an increase to the rent; it’s a win-win outcome where you have more rent and the tenant has a better quality of life.

What this is all about…

This section is designed to give you an outline of the five property investment strategies listed below, but is not designed to be an exhaustive guide to these strategies. Our aim is to help you appreciate that there’s a lot more to the world of property investment than simply buying a property and renting it out.

Property Investment Strategies Snapshot

Common Techniques:

Buy & Hold – Most common property investment strategy where you buy a property and rent it out with the aim of making capital gains and / or rental returns

Renovations – The idea is to make money by adding value to the property through improvements. A strategy that requires time and skill. Not an option for most people.

Creative  ‘Low / No Cash Down’ Techniques:

Flips – Short-term fast-cash property investment strategy where you buy a property and then sell it again before title transfers into your name. (This can work if there is strong growth in the economy but there are many traps.)

Lease Options – A property investment strategy that takes a residential lease and provides the tenant with an option to buy too.

Wraps (Vendor Financing) – Buy a property and then sell it on ‘vendor’s terms’. Receive regular payments rather than a lump sum settlement payout.

Time to get creative…

We firmly believe that you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to begin making substantial real estate profits out of property investment.

You need the right property, purchased at the right price, with the right finance structure, plus the right tenant and let time and demand do the rest.

However, having said that, the property investment market is constantly changing, often dramatically. While some experts believe that certain changes in the current market may spell the end for property investment as a strategy for continued profit, others believe it will just mean the end of the seller’s market and the beginning of a great time for astute and well-prepared buyers (investors).

So read up on the various tools available to you, and then get creative!
