We all know the Aussie property prices have been on the up and up across the country lately, but what’s the likelihood it’s all going to end in tears as values plummet?

Investing Advice: Renting VS Buying Your Home

By |Friday, April 4, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments|

You will almost always get a better financial outcome by renting rather than owning a home, provided you invest your capital and savings (from renting) astutely. Consider this real life example: A property apprentice recently asked me to help her quantify which was better: owning or renting. For $500 she could rent a home of acceptable standard, or for $500,000 she could buy something similar. If she did buy, she wouldn’t have any money left to invest […]

By |Friday, November 30, 2012|Stats & Data|3 Comments|

Investing in the resource rich areas of Queensland has proved to be a smart property investment for financiers over the last ten years or so. Gladstone in particular, saw dwelling prices rocket since the region’s humble beginnings a decade ago. However, with mining growth being scaled back considerably, securing a profit in the Bowen and Surat Basins will pose more of a challenge heading toward the future.
