Buying an investment property
Many successful property investors take a strategic approach to researching markets, crunching numbers and regularly reviewing their investment’s performance.
Finding the right strategy
Your property investment strategy should be a good fit for your timeframe and personal situation. Talk to a financial adviser about what could be right for you. Below are some pros and cons of three popular property investment strategies here in Australia.
Positive cashflow strategy
Capital growth/negative cashflow strategy
You have a negative cashflow property when the expense of holding the property is more than the income made from the property.
Investment strategies are always best discussed with an experienced financial planner. Suncorp Bank has a team of expert financial planners who can help. Learn more.
