Why a Property Investor?
Holding property within an investment portfolio can help provide diversification, as it tends to perform differently to other assets in response to different market conditions.
That means if, for example, shares are performing badly, property may perform better. The hope is that by investing in a broad spread of assets, if one area underperforms, the performance of others may compensate for this.
Another reasons for property investors buying these types of investments is a way of hedging against inflation. With high inflation, your rental income and property value would increase significantly. As the cost of living goes up, so will your cash flow as property investors. Management of rental properties and taxes have been changed and made investing slightly more complicated. However, there are ways to adapt to these changes. And with a long-term strategy, property investors can earn profitable incomes in the short and long-term.
We have another business called Elite Property Rentals which can assist with this property management a property investors.

Property Investors Buyer Agents
Real Estate Agents are often struggling with lack of supply, demand is usually high and competition is always tough. Property Investors and Buyers are regularly being priced out of the market, particularly first home buyers, young families looking to upgrade and the Mum and Dad investors as well.
Buyer Agents in Victoria are seeing purchasers being out bid and out played and either losing or overpaying… not only at auction in other situations such as a sale by set date or an expression of interest campaign. This is a game best played by those who are experienced and who know the pitfalls of the industry, not to mention the rights of the purchaser and the obligations of the selling agent.
Increasingly Buyer’s Agents or “Buyer’s Advocates” are being engaged by educated buyers to navigate the minefields of the real estate industry on their behalf and to show them the real value of property, this of course in turn will save them money, time and stress.

Your Buyer’s Agent should know the processes of purchasing and the legalities associated with any purchase. If unsure check to see if your Buyer’s Agent is a member of REBAA (Real Estate Buyers Agents Association of Australia) and/or a member of the REIV (Real Estate Institute of Victoria).
Having found that special property, a buyer agents ensure clients benefit from full due diligence, uncovering anything that may adversely affect the property’s value and its enjoyment post-purchase. They also analyse the price in detail, before negotiating the best possible terms on your behalf. Although it is normal to engage a buying agents early on in your property search, Elite Buyer Agents can come in at lots of different stages in the process. Some clients may have already found a property and need assistance with negotiations, analysing price or some comfort that the property is as it is described.
With regular reports and constant communication, a buyer agents client knows they are receiving unparalleled advice and access to the entire property market, including local experts providing unrivalled access to properties – both those marketed publicly, privately, and many that are not even on the market (so off-market), via a single point of contact, irrespective of the selling agent or vendor.

Choose the right Buyer’s Agent and you could find yourself with your Saturdays back, sitting in your new home in one of Melbourne’s healthiest growth corridors (with change in your pocket) or with an investment portfolio that will make your friends green with envy.
