Residential property is one of the safest forms of investment in Australia. As a fundamental human necessity, housing will always be in demand. Property is tangible – you can see it, touch it, feel it. It’s low-risk because almost 70% of the market is comprised of homeowners who underpin values and the remainder are tenants who ensure consistent rental income. The Australian housing market is valued at around $6.9 trillion dollars – this is about 3.75 times the size of the share market, providing a stable and secure environment. Residential property has strong historical growth with prices doubling every 10 or more years with the right selection.
As populations increase in major cities, residential property is in continual demand. Vacancy rates are low and rental yields are high. Strong rental demand allows you to attract premium tenants, minimise vacancy periods and ensure smooth cash flow.
