Sydney’s property market has witnessed much change throughout 2018 as the prices growth over the last three years starts to moderate, and in some cases, prices in certain areas of Sydney have come-off from their peaks reached in 2016 and 2017. While the media has been focused on these changes, with some experts warning against buying in Sydney, clever investors are eagerly pursuing real estate investments.
Yet, isn’t this counter-intuitive when the prevailing market conditions seem to argue against investing in property? Professional investors read the market differently and learn how to profit no matter the market’s direction.
Now is a Great Time to Invest in Real Estate
This is the philosophy of one of the world’s leading investors. “There has never been a better time to invest in real estate,” says Robert T. Kiyosaki, famed author of the Rich Dad Poor Dad series of books on financial education. Kyosaki is currently touring Australia giving seminars on investing, borrowing from some of the lessons he teaches in his acclaimed books.
Kiyosaki teaches throughout his books, programs, and financial seminars that investing is often about mindset. Successful investors have a different mindset to the multitudes that never invest and therefore don’t have the opportunity to have their hard-earned savings working for them. When it comes to property investing, Kiyosaki suggests a different mindset. This is why his message that ‘there has never been a better time to invest’ is so different from the prevailing opinion in the media.
The difference between seasoned property investors, like Kiyosaki, and those with far less experience in property investing comes down to being able to identify opportunities. When property markets change direction, professional investors are able to spot opportunities that would otherwise remain hidden, giving them an advantage over investors who may become caught-up in the prevailing market mood. Simply put, the opportunity investor is adept at finding value where other investors don’t see it.
Vision Property & Finance’s Matt Ivers deals with this question every day, and like Kiyosaki and other professional property investors, he has become skilled at seeing opportunities others may miss.
“Recently I advised clients regarding investing in Brisbane apartments. The prevailing wisdom has been that the Brisbane apartment market has been over-supplied and it would normally be something advisors might want to steer clear of.”
Ivers’ success with recent clients, however, has hinged on being able to uncover value where others couldn’t see it. The right opportunities came up at the right time for Ivers’ clients, and today the media is turning its attention to the news that property investors are starting to buy up apartment stock in Brisbane. Ivers’ clients are fortunate to have been well ahead of other investors but couldn’t have hoped to achieve great outcomes with their own investments if Matt’s trained eye was not able to detect value.
“We saw an opportunity with an off-the-plan purchase in a complex under construction. The location was superb with the area being less well-supplied with apartments of this high quality. The developers had a very good reputation for delivering very high quality and these particular apartments are a cut above the rest.”
This unique combination of factors has left Ivers’ clients very happy with the result. Not only have they been able to generate strong rental incomes in a very popular part of Brisbane but in both instances, post-construction estimates of their apartment’s value have seen increases for each property that are above average. None of these outcomes could have been achieved without a keen eye for hidden value.
