After a long period of strong growth and unprecedented low interest rates property prices have stabilised and moderated. 

For some that sounds like a distant storm approaching, yet for others it’s music to their ears.

With less aggression and hype in the market place, first home buyers are finding they are competitive and their offers are being accepted more often.

In fact, first home buyers now comprise around 20 per cent of buyers in some capital cities. That is surprising as prices haven’t dropped that far, but obviously enough to create better value. For investors that’s not such a bad thing either. Property listings are taking longer to sell, which allows an investor the ability to keep their eye on a few properties and evaluate their potential more carefully.

But while the market  debates, life goes on, and if you are thinking about making an investment in the near future the question isn’t really a question of when but what to invest in.

And although capitalisation via price growth may be less achievable in the near term, ownership via a dual income property is both a solid short- and long-term investment strategy and should be considered by anyone a few years away from retirement and thinking of investing in a positively geared property. 

So, what’s a suitable investment strategy right now?

Granny flats are affordable, stylish and filled with features.

They are modern and rent easily. In fact around 46 per cent of all rented properties are rented to a single tenant, which means a granny flat will be suitable for a large portion of the rent market.

Whether you must purchase a property and build a granny flat to create a two-income investment or already have a tenanted property to add a granny flat too, they will return a high R.O.I, often exceeding 10 per cent per annum. And if you’re eligible to claim the depreciation from the flat and inclusions against your income, the advantages of building a granny flat really stack up.

Dual income properties are a great investment in good times but even better in tough times.

So whatever the reason you have an interest in granny flats, the best place to see a full range of designs and prices is at Newcastle Granny Flats and Homes 124 – 126 Maitland Rd Mayfield and they are open 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Saturday.
