You’re dreaming of your property – what it will look like, where it will be, all the happy memories you’ll make in it. When saving to buy a new property, there is more to consider than just the final sale price.
Negatively gearing an investment property is viewed by many Australians as a tax effective way to get ahead and indeed, despite the pandemic’s shake up of the rental and property market in 2020, our love of bricks and mortar as an investment remains unabated.
The balance between our work lives and our personal lives has been even more challenging of late. Around 68% of working Australians have experienced a change in their employment situation in the past 12 months, with the most common change being working from home.
Not even a global pandemic can quash Australia’s obsession with bricks and mortar. We follow auction results like sporting fans and spend more than two and a half hours per week viewing property – whether it’s for a dream home, or the goal of starting an investment portfolio.
