House price outstrips inflation rate by 8 to 1

House price outstrips inflation rate by 8 to 1

By Paul Bennion

The latest house price figures for Australia’s capital cities reveal that the property market in the past year outperformed the rate of inflation by a margin of eight to one.

In 2016, the combined capital city home price growth rate was 10.9 per cent, according to CoreLogic data. 

That’s compared to an annual inflation rate for the eight Australian capital cities of 1.3 per cent.

Sydney property owners fared the best, with property prices rising by a ratio of nearly twelve to one over the past year. Melbourne property owners also achieved a strong outcome, with property prices rising by a ratio of around ten to one compared to the annual inflation rate.

Even in capital cities, such as Brisbane, that achieved more modest rates of capital growth, the ratio of capital growth to the annual inflation rate was nearly three to one.

These figures are important for property investors because one of the key reasons many people decide to invest in real estate is to protect themselves against the impact of inflation so they can build personal wealth over the long term.

It is also important to keep in mind that these figures do not take into account rental growth. In Sydney, for example, average weekly house rents jumped by nearly 7 per cent in 2016.

The fact that property values are now rising at a much faster rate than inflation in most capital cities is encouraging more mum and dad investors to purchase several investment properties.

Astute property investors can build a successful property portfolio at a much faster rate if they fully claim all their allowable tax benefits and, in particular, those related to depreciation that can be substantial.

These tax depreciation deductions can add up to several thousands of dollars each year in tax benefits for an average property investor.

To qualify for these tax deductions, an investor must have a fully compliant tax depreciation company undertake an onsite inspection of the property and compile a depreciation report based on this inspection.

Depreciation is a complex area of taxation. It requires a professional company to undertake a depreciation report because of the constant rule changes.

The ATO is now taking a more aggressive approach with tax deductions made by residential investors and has asked a large number to provide more details about their claims relating to property investments.

Property investors should check that the company undertaking their tax depreciation schedule is a member of the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS).

Employing a company, such as DEPPRO, that is a member of AIQS assures consumers that their tax depreciation report is completed in a professional manner.

Property investors are now able to identify and bid on auctions remotely using a new live-streaming functionality launched by Gavl.

" ["fulltext"]=> string(1540) "

Called “Request an Auction”, the new functionality enables users to watch and bid on any Sydney or Melbourne auction remotely.

Through Gavl, prospective buyers are now able to register to bid on their preferred auction. The platform will obtain permission from the listing agent and confirm within 48 hours.

Vendors can also request to have their auctions broadcast to a larger buyer audience.

Co-founder Joel Smith said that auctions streamed on Gavl attract 47 per cent more viewers than traditional ones.

He said that Request an Auction will be valuable for remote buyers.

“Buyers are able to have Gavl attend any auction they nominate, so they will never have to miss out on an opportunity due to logistical complications in physically attending the auction.

“Vendors, too, have the opportunity to directly book an auction with us, so they can open up their event to buyers all around the world. With more potential buyers, they’re giving their property the chance to receive more bids and maximise their sales result.”

Mr Smith said that prior to the Request an Auction app, buyers were limited to what they could achieve through the Gavl technology.

Gavl is a live-streaming and bidding platform for real estate auctions.

Mr Smith said that it has streamed more than 6,000 auctions, which have achieved 3.5 million views from 50 countries.

Gavl’s Request an Auction function is currently being offered in Melbourne and Sydney only.

Having recently purchased her 6th property, Julia joins host Tim Neary to discuss her journey, share her ups and downs over the years, and reveal her thoughts on why some properties are better than others.

Julia also explains why she no longer makes a move without the help of a buyer’s agent, why working with a strong team of specialists is extremely important and discloses her long-term property ambitions.
