Money is best invested in property

By Grant Muddle

Muddle tnAs my father said "property is one of the smartest ways to invest money". Over the years, he also advised me to leave the stock-market behind and opt for brick and mortar instead. Buying at the right time, right price and right place would allow me to retire a wealthy man, he said.

Taking my father's advice, I set a goal for myself to be successful financially. This goal was to achieve success through real estate.

According to research, investors on the BRW Rich 200 list are continuously making high and safe returns by avoiding retail prices that most people pay. This piece of information is not commonly known to people. The investors I am talking about accumulate property at wholesale rates through property development as opposed to "off'-the-plan".

Off the plan property refers to that which is in its pre-construction stages. By purchasing this type of property, you can make quite a substantial amount of money in the form of capital gains. These properties that are sold before they are completed or even constructed are often called presales or pre-sale properties.

By securing properties though property development you can increase your wealth safely and also get a better return on investment. Adopting this strategy is enabling me to realize my financial goals much faster and also be successful at the same time.

An illustration is mentioned below that demonstrates the cost saving of acquiring property at the cost price. This price is usually given to developers and not to investors. The figures below are of a duplex townhouse in Toowoomba.

                                                                       Developer                  Investor

Market value                                                   $350,000                    $350,000

Less development profit*                                 $85,500                      0

Less marketing costs                                        $9,500                        0

Purchase price                                                 $255,000                    $350,000

Plus stamp duty                                                $0                               $12,500

Total cost of property                                       $255,000                    $362,500

Net equity                                                        $95,000                      ($12,500)

The numbers mentioned above are based on a project that showed 28% yield on all costs. As a property developer I have even acquired a personal property at $107,500 cheaper than typical retail costs.

A standard duplex, two townhouse project would provide an equity of $190,000 in equity and would also save $215,000 for me.
