Attention Foreign Investors - Build a Western Australian Property Portfolio with Confidence

Hello Singapore... We have arrived! 

Many Singaporeans are buying Western Australian properties for their children’s use when they study in Australia or simply for investment. It has steadily become a preferred investment destination for various reasons including:

  • Proximity to Singapore

  • Affordable property pricing

  • Stable property growth

  • Freehold title property

  • Stamp duty savings when buying ‘off the plan’ property.

For over 15 years, Johnson Property Group (JPG) have been helping International Investors build wealth through Western Australian Property. Our team is made up of highly skilled and experienced Property Professionals that work collaboratively across the following property services; sales, management, development and investment syndication. This level of expertise gives our clients the confidence they need to rely on JPG for continued support in achieving lasting financial benefits in all aspects of the West Australian Real Estate Industry.
 
Our principal, Andrew Johnson and myself are visiting Singapore up until the 19th November 2014 to meet with clients that are interested in finding out more about Property Investment opportunities and benefits within the surrounding suburbs of our capital city Perth, Western Australia. We are also thrilled to present a selection of carefully chosen affordable properties that foreigners are eligible to buy - including Apartments, House and Land packages and Townhouses.  Plus, we will offer you insight into new property development projects and much more.  All appointments are obligation free and it is a great opportunity to learn more about your investment options and determine the type of property investment portfolio that will best suit your personal and family needs.

 

To register your interest for an obligation free appointment during this visit to Singapore, simply contact me on +61(0)419 968 870 or send me an email at jenny@jpg.com.au and I will be in contact with you shortly to confirm arrangements.  

We look forward to hearing from you.

Lowest Interest Rates in 60 Years Stimulates WA Property Investor Buyer Activity

Thinking of starting an investment property portfolio? Now is the perfect time.

Interest rates have hit their lowest point in 60 years. Low interest rates, stamp duty benefits and a drop in new housing construction are causing investors to turn their head toward the WA property market. Whilst first-home buyers dominated the WA market in the past 18 months, investors and trade-up buyers are now emerging as the new front runners in property sales.

 

First Home Buyer purchases hit historic lows in December 2013. Diminishing numbers of first time purchases means the tenant pool is growing ever larger – which is good news for investors.

 

Johnson Property Group (JPG) Managing Director, Andrew Johnson commented "as property prices lift, First Home Buyers are finding it difficult to afford to purchase property and are choosing to rent instead."

 

An article by The West Australian, published today by Economics Editor, Shane Wright advised "first time buyers are being squeezed out of the market even though unaffordability levels are well short of the highs reached before the Global Financial Crisis."

 

A recent report released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows an 8.7% rise in Perth housing prices in 2013.  While this is positive for growth, indicators suggest that Australia is moving to a situation where many families will be renters and potential investors may need to take a long-term approach and look outside the CBD. “With this likely to become a long term trend - now really is a good time for would-be property investors to get moving on developing their investment property portfolio.” Andrew commented.

 

“Increasingly we are seeing a shift from the larger homes to the smaller, more well-appointed homes on small blocks, with limited gardens and the ability to ‘lock-up and leave’, ideal for the fly-in-fly-out workers and busy couples”.  Andrew commented. The interest in Apartment living has also risen with Andrew confirming an overwhelming response in enquiries for Stage 2 INVITA one and two bedroom apartments recently released in Perth’s fast growing southern suburb of Wellard.

 

With the outlook for investor purchases positive, JPG have also recently appointed additional staff to the Property Management Services team to keep well resourced to manage newly acquired investment properties for their clients.
