Strategically Growing Your Property Portfolio: Key Questions to Ensure Success
Embarking on the journey to expand your property portfolio in South Australia can be a thrilling venture, offering the potential to build assets and enhance cash flow.
However, not all investment properties reach the pinnacle of the South Australian market. In this guide, let’s explore the crucial questions you should be asking to ensure your property investments stand the test of time.
- Is this an investment grade property?
Before putting your money where your mouth is, it is important to consider if the property will generate optimal value in the long term. It is important to note that you can’t just purchase any property, because not every property will make a great investment. Amongst the over saturated property market in South Australia, we are experts in finding “investment grade” properties for your potential future portfolio. These properties not only generate value over time but also provide a steady cash flow, liquidity, easy management, act as a hedge against inflation and also offer attractive tax benefits. To secure an investment grade property, you should:
- Consider the location
- Consider the neighbourhood
- Consider the property development potential
- Should I have pre-approved finance?
Securing pre-approved finance is a fundamental step in your property investment journey. Collaborating with a lender to arrange pre-approved finance empowers you with a clear understanding of your budget, facilitating a seamless search and purchase process.
- You are aware of exactly how much you can spend
- You will know what your repayments will be, and therefore your cash flow.
- You will be able to make a firm offer on a property.
- Will my cash flow support my finance requirements?
The sustainability of your investment property depends on your understanding of cash flow. Ensuring your property does not strain your current finances is imperative. Consider costs, outgoings, and establish a financial buffer to weather potential crises. If the property you are looking at investing in puts a strain on your current finances, you may want to review your decision at this time.
Growing your property portfolio requires careful consideration and strategic planning. By asking these essential questions, you set the foundation for successful property investments.
