Return to vendor – as prices rise again!

Return to vendor – as prices rise again!

While we were all settling in for a year or two of ailing property prices, it appears the market has made an unexpected rapid recovery.

This miracle comeback saw prices rise faster than you can say inflation, predominantly between September and December last year.  According to market experts, properties in Melbourne’s inner eastern suburb of Canterbury rose by a whopping $400,000 in a mere 12 months!

And just when you thought it was safe to go back in the shallows, it appears that unit prices have also taken flight, reaching a city-wide record.

Those lucky enough to be breakfasting on a piece of prime real estate pie will no doubt be laughing all the way to their balcony views.  And of course, should they be looking to sell in the current market, they’d certainly fetch a pretty penny.  That is – if they can find a buyer!

Because, even though interest rates are super low, meaning bank loans are more serviceable, people still can’t afford to buy – no matter how much spare cash they have.  Prices are just too high. That makes it even harder to get into the market in 2020.

So, what does this mean for you?

If you’re looking to buy property but can’t seem to get a leg in, you need a smaller slice of pie at a fraction of the cost.  And this is where we come in.  GSA purchases top-notch real estate in Melbourne’s most affluent suburbs.  We do this for the sole purpose of our investors, doubling their investment return after five years.  It’s an easier and more accessible way to grow your wealth.

If you’re struggling to crack the market, this is the perfect time to come on board.  With interest rates still on the ground, it’s a chance to get your foothold and start climbing!

Things might start looking up – if you do

Things might start looking up – if you do

A year from now you may wish you started today” – a wise old quote from author Karen Lamb, and one that quite commonly triggers many of our guilt and panic buttons.

And so, I pose this to you …

What did you accomplish last year? Did you do everything you set out to do? Are you left with any feelings of regret? Were there some things you would like to have tackled but didn’t know how or when? Like your finances, for instance.

Maybe it all seemed too hard. Or perhaps you thought things were fine just the way they were. But there’s a chance you may have developed an inadvertent case of ‘’blinkers on’’.

Although there is some comfort in taking the road well-travelled, standing still and burying your head in the sand could see you missing out on some of life’s greatest opportunities. So, you need to look up every once and a while! Take those blinders off – because the possibilities are out there if you’re willing to see them.

With the silly season well and truly over, it’s now time to face the music.

And if it’s your financial situation that needs a bit of shaking up, do something other than what you’ve been doing. Step outside the box. Go seek out those alternatives and experience life’s potential.

Think about where you’d like to see yourself by the end of this year. Or in five or ten years from now.

It all starts today.

“We build lifestyles’’ is our company motto. It stands to reason that we’re here to do just that – for you. Give us a call to hear more about our life-changing strategy and finally clear that peripheral haze.

Clash of the cold hard cash

Which savings account is better?

 

Have you been with the same bank since you were a kid?  Maybe it’s been the family go-to for decades, and you had never thought to change.  Or perhaps, you’re more the adventurous type who likes to explore all their available options.  Whatever your situation, do you know how to recognise a good bank when you see it?  And when it comes to your savings, can you be sure you’re getting the best deal?

With interest rates hitting record lows, we couldn’t blame you for throwing in the towel.  Why bother putting your money into any financial institution if they’re all going to leave you high and dry?  Perhaps you’d be just as well leaving your stash under the mattress like the good old days.

But instead of settling for a measly 0.10%, it might surprise you to know that several banks can do much better than that.  Some are offering as high as 2 – 2.5%.  But interest rates alone do not maketh the nest egg.  There are other important factors to consider when choosing the best savings account.

 

1. Monthly minimums:

Some banks require you to have a minimum in your account to avoid monthly charges.

2. Reputation:

A good bank should provide proven security, reliability and value for their customers.

3. Customer service & ease of use:

Intuitive websites and clearly-spoken support teams are highly-desirable attributes.

 

Of course, a solid interest rate is nothing to be sneezed at.  What’s more, GSA has negotiated access to a large hedge fund, and you could qualify for projected quarterly returns of 8% p.a.

The good news is – early registration to join the priority queue is open from the 15th December.  Contact [email protected] to join the list and receive our prospectus as soon as it’s available.

Why real estate investment is streets ahead of the rest

Why real estate investment is streets ahead of the rest

Little compares to the sense of security that comes with financial freedom.  Knowing that you’re setting the scene for a comfortable future is a powerful motivator.  And naturally, you want to find the most effective way to grow your savings as fast and as sizeable as possible.

With a variety of investment options at your disposal, it can be easy to get a bit lost in all the data.  But research shows that real estate investment is the undisputed forerunner in this game for the following reasons:

 

Predictable performance

The economy cycles through peaks and troughs, often leaving volatile investments stranded.  Real estate, on the other hand, can withstand the fluctuations, anticipating an eventual rise in property value.

Leverage

The beauty of real estate investment is the capacity to use your property as equity.  This allows you to borrow more and grow your investment portfolio further.  You can then witness the snowballing effect of exponential wealth accumulation.

Control

A secure asset allows you more control over your cash flow, and in turn – your lifestyle.  Property provides a tangible and saleable asset, putting you 100% in the driver’s seat.  Compare this to business investment, for example, where others can affect the outcomes.  With real estate investment – you are solely in charge.

 

To better your chances of getting the most out of your investment portfolio, you should also consider these four crucial elements:

 

1. Timing

Starting too late or selling too soon seem to be the biggest culprits here.

2. Location

A favourable area can make all the difference to the demand for your property, and hence – the value.

3. The bigger market

Look outside the box and find investment opportunities further afield.  You don’t have to stick to your own back yard.

4. Personal budget

It’s simple – work out what you can afford without compromising your lifestyle.  There are plenty of tools to help you calculate your dollars and keep you on track.

 

So, now that you’ve scoped out the lay of the land, you may wish to consider your property investment options.  Give us a call to discuss our exclusive thoroughfare to financial success.  It’s as safe as houses!
