Capital Growth

Based on industry reports and market research pockets of QLD have been identified to outperform Melbourne or Sydney for capital growth during 2016

Rental Yield

Did you know that Queensland already has higher rental yields than NSW (3% average) and Melbourne (2.9% average) having an average of just over 4.5%. New properties in the ‘golden triangle’ from Sunshine Coast through to Brisbane and south towards Gold Coast then across west to Ipswich and back up to Sunshine Coast and including Toowoomba, demonstrate rental yields of 5% to 6.5% today

This ‘golden triangle’ is already attracting investors from Sydney and Melbourne who are wanting higher rental yields (being cash flow positive) plus strong prospect of realistic capital growth where for the value of a new one bed apartment in Melbourne of 40 sq/m one could secure a 3 or 4 bed house with land for the same price + get higher rent upfront

 Higher Rental Yields = Cash Flow Positive investment property; gives you the tool and ability to build an Investment Property Portfolio that much quicker and thus reach your own Financial Planning Goals far more effectively
