Do you believe you can buy a good property with some smart research and smart timing? Yes, it’s possible to buy some best performing properties in places that you probably never thought of. You will find them in regional Australia, especially the country towns. I know one will not live there but buying them for investment purposes. Are you interested, if yes, check it out!
When people look for an investment property they are told about or rather warned first thing about regional property in widespread Australia. The warning always comes in form of not touching the regional property in capital letters, “If you do, you would better bid goodbye to your hard-earned money”. Maybe they are right up to some extent, but not in all cases if they’d done their homework well.
Possibly, people still invest in the regional or so-called outback properties for the sake of quick gain, but that “quick gain” never comes. They should know better than that. Investment in such properties is a life-time investment provided they did it after watching the overall growth of the area, the upcoming schemes and why would people come in those sleeping areas!
That’s true, it makes sense to great investors, but they should check population statistics that might be the key figure in investment in such areas. After all, almost 10 million out of the total 26 million people of the Australian population live outside 25-30 large to very large cities of Australia. So where those 7-8 million people live?
Regional Areas are beneficial
Obviously, 7-8 million people live in regional areas, and all of them in various sectors of regional areas. Doesn’t it sound like a fairly significant number of people of Australia live in a variety of sectors? They certainly do. Now, this is up to the investors to select their next investment in an area that will bring them a handsome return.
Then it’s up to them whether they want to invest a small amount in extensive property in a remote area and wait for a long time for a handsome return or go for a short term large investment in larger cities and sell it after a few years.
There is no doubt about the fact that all these places will not attract everyone to live in because of lack of facilities, but some of these are prospective future investment sectors for their population growth rate and investment value.
Maybe these places will not look so attractive for investment purposes to everyone, but the fact will remain that these are the places that will come up with many opportunities for investment purposes in near future.
Maybe not everyone will see the numerous advantages these areas provide in current resources upsurge and prominent upcoming towns and even the regional areas with growing populations in each of these sectors that bring a wide scope for investment in property in these areas. For instance, a basic price in some of these towns is still in the range of $140,000-$180,000 with almost as good quality as you buy in a high-class property market.
Again the risk factor of investment in these areas as we all know the Australian population growth is slow even in large cities so we can expect the same in this sector as well but surprisingly some of these areas are growing faster than metro cities so we must keep this in our mind when selecting an area for investment.
And yes, people see the plans by the local town councils as upgrading of the existing infrastructure as one of the most crucial criteria, but most towns rarely go for changes unless the population growth demands that. However, even if the population growing at a fast rate that doesn’t alone means upgrading coming by the councils, but there are several other factors that come into play in such a case.
The benefit of the price goes to investment property if the population of that area grows fast as more business comes to that area that helps increase the property price.
However, if you were looking to investing in a smaller property market for a big profit in your mind, then you must keep a close eye on that particular area, a favorable supply and demand balance, and population growth. Another factor to keep in mind is the popularity of the location from a tenancy point of view.
Remember when you decide to invest in any rural, regional or small town property, the most important part is to make sure that you should look at the price factor as well your holding capacity.
