Discover the positives and negatives of positively-geared properties…
But with property prices on the slide a different approach is needed to property investing.
It is no surprise that in uncertain times smart investors seek out income producing property, also known as positively-geared property, to help them build wealth.
A positively-geared property is simply a property that makes you more money in rent than it costs you in expenses, such as loan interest and maintenance costs. In other words it generates income for you each month instead of costing you money each month.
Properties like these are hard to find in a booming market, however right now there are a range of potential options;
> Buying ‘positively geared’ property under the National Rental Affordability Scheme [NRAS] incentive – this is where the government pays you an extra $10k each year [per NRAS property] just for being a property investor.
> Buying cheap ‘cash flow producing’ property in the US – we’re talking rental returns as high as 15-25% plus the potential for considerable future capital growth as the US market recovers [I know I thought people were crazy buying property overseas until I actually looked into how it all works]
> Buying property with your superannuation funds – more and more people are choosing to be proactive with their future retirement money. After all do you want to risk having all your funds exposed to the sharemarket?
> Corporate Leased Mining Housing – buying property that is securely leased to the big mining companies. The opportunities in the resources sector are huge and are not going away anytime soon.

But what’s right for you and how do you avoid the traps?…
If you are interested in finding out what’s possible our friend Graeme Clark, from Investment Property Finders, is holding a free educational and informative seminar on Tuesday May 22nd.
Rest assured this is an educational seminar, not a selling event in disguise… he is not going to try and sell you property on the night.
At this 120 minute seminar you’re going to learn:
- The Media – Are they your investment adviser?
- Research… and the ‘mystique’ of it.
- The 5 most important things to know before you invest.
- How the ATO can help you create wealth.
- NRAS – Is it too good to be true?
- Positively geared property in the USA… sounds risky?
- The impact of a strong Aussie Dollar on US property
- Financial strategies to use with the cash-flow to make even more profit.
- Property in Self-Managed Super Funds [SMSF] – Is it for you?
- How to avoid getting stung!
Graeme Clark was a Financial Planner for almost 20 years and saw the need for developing financial planning type strategies for people wanting to invest in residential property rather than the share market.
