Investment

FastMove Properties believe that investing in property could be the best thing you ever do, we offer a number of off market deals that give you chances to buy at discounted prices.

We have listed our top ten reasons of why investing in property could work for you:

1. More millionaires have been created through property than any other form of investment.

Remember, there’s nothing wrong with seeing what successful people do and applying those principles to your own life. If the majority of extraordinarily wealthy people have used property profitably, there is no reason why you shouldn’t also.

2. Anyone can do it

Property investment is not just for the wealthy. It doesn’t really take large sums of money to get involved in property. This is because banks will lend you up to 80% against the security of residential property, which means that most investors with a steady job and a little capital behind them can afford to buy investment properties.

It has been shown over and over again that careful and intelligent use of property can enable ordinary people, like you and me, to become property millionaires in about 10 years. If you truly intend to become one of the wealthy people in the future, you should probably take a serious look at using property to your advantage.

3. Security

It’s often said that residential property offers the security of ‘bricks and mortar’, but let’s take a closer look at why we believe it’s one of the safest and potentially most profitable investment markets.

You never hear of houses ‘going broke’ do you? But lots of companies have gone broke. Even companies previously considered blue chip have gone broke. Yet even allowing for the ups and downs of property values that we hear about, the underlying trend of property prices in the major capital city residential markets has been steady growth.

You don’t have to believe us when we say that residential property is a secure investment. Just ask the banks. Banks have always recognised property, and especially residential property, as an excellent security. The reason they’ll lend you up to 80% of the value of your property is that they know property values have never fallen over the long-term. Another factor that adds to the security of residential property as an investment is that you can insure it against most risks. You can insure the building against fire or damage and you can insure yourself against the tenant leaving, damaging your property or breaking the lease.

4. Income that grows

The rental income you receive from your investment property allows you to borrow and gain the benefit of leverage by helping you pay the interest on your mortgage. Over the years the rental income received from property investments has increased at a rate that has outpaced inflation.

5. Consistent capital growth

Good capital city residential property has an unequalled track record of producing high and consistent capital growth. Over the past 25 years the value of the average property in all capital cities has doubled in value every eight to 10 years. However, in the short-term the picture is much more uncertain and confused, and at times capital growth stops and even reverses, as we saw in the early 80s, the early 90s and in some areas in the most recent slump we experienced in 2008.

The better your property selection – where you buy, what you buy, how well you negotiate and how you finance your property investment – the better your returns could be.

”6.

Sure you need some of your own money – We don’t believe in nothing down deals, but the ability to use leverage with property significantly increases the return on your investment capital and, importantly, it allows you to purchase a substantially larger investment than you would normally be able to. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE

7. You are in control

Property is a great investment because you make all the decisions and have direct control over the returns from your property.

8. Tax benefits

Property investors are able to take advantage of a range of tax benefits including tax deductions and depreciation allowances. These are too detailed to mention here but can be researched online.

9. You can add value

There are hundreds of ways you can add value to your property, which will increase your income and your property’s worth.

10. You don't need to sell it

Unlike most other investments, when property goes up in value you don’t need to sell in order to capitalise on that increased value. You simply go back to your bank or mortgage broker and get your lender to increase your loan.

11. Most forgiving

Even if you bought the worst house at the worst possible time, chances are that it would still go up in value over the next few years. History has proven that property is possibly the most forgiving investment asset over time. If you are prepared to hold property over a number of years, it’s bound to rise in value. There’s really no other asset class quite like property.
