    Expert Advice for Navigating the Property Market in 2023

    The Australian property market in 2023 has experienced an upward trend in major cities, leading many prospective first-home buyers to wonder if now is the right time to take a step onto the property ladder. Despite the challenges posed by rising living costs and interest rates, there are still opportunities to enter the market successfully by combining a sound investment strategy with a smart approach.

    At Property Club, we love nothing more than helping our members break into the Australian property market – no matter how challenging it may appear at face value. Here are four essential tips to help Australian investors such as yourself navigate the current market:

    Seize the Opportunity to Buy

    Purchasing a property can seem expensive at any given time, but it is essential not to miss out on the opportunities presented by the market. Even if property prices have risen, buying as soon as you can afford to is a wise move. Over time, as you pay down the mortgage, benefit from capital growth, and experience wage increases, managing the mortgage becomes more feasible.

    As interest rates rise, there may also be room for negotiation, strengthening your position to enter into the property market in 2023. The sooner you buy, the longer you’ll have to experience the true rewards of the Australian real estate market.

    Consider Becoming a Rentvestor

    While owning your own home might be tempting, becoming a rentvestor is an increasingly popular and financially appealing strategy. Rentvesting involves living in a preferred suburb as a tenant while investing in a property you can afford.

    By doing so, you build property assets in more affordable capital city suburbs, all while benefiting from tax deductions on the expenses associated with your investment properties. This method of investment has gained popularity among various demographics, including those who may face financial challenges. It’s a strong option for single parents and first-time investors who may need more financial security while undertaking their investment dreams.

    Opt for Affordable Capital Cities

    Diversifying risk can be achieved by investing in houses with lower price points in capital cities that offer high cash flows and easy access to local amenities.

    These amenities include:

    • Entertainment complexes
    • Shops
    • Schools
    • Public transport
    • Employment hubs
    • Medical centres
    • Vets
    • Dentists
    • And more

    This approach not only mitigates risks but also facilitates faster growth of your property portfolio. And the faster your portfolio can expand, the more resources you will have at your disposal to invest in more competitive markets and capital cities around Australia.

    Treat Your Investment Property as a Business

    Ensure you make the right decisions before finalising any property purchase with Property Club's expert guidance. Look beyond mortgage repayments and take into account all associated costs, including monthly expenses for property maintenance. Seeking advice from our property experts will give you a comprehensive understanding of these costs, empowering you to make well-informed decisions.

    Property investment isn’t a hobby, it’s a business. And if you want to find success in this field, then it’s going to require your full commitment – which usually begins with surrounding yourself with experienced specialists in this space.
