Thomas Paul Constructions have been focusing on the residential investment market since 1997. With over 30 years of experience in the building industry, and nearly 15 years experience in building investment properties, they know what is needed to make the best investment properties.
ensure that their properties and the areas they are built in provide investors with the best opportunity to maximize their rent return, with high capital growth potential. At present Thomas Paul
are producing investment properties on the Central Coast, Newcastle
and Hunter Valley. These areas are experiencing high growth due to an increasing, long term investment in a range of industries.
The largest industry in the Hunter is coal mining. Coal is Australia’s biggest export commodity, with over 80% of all coal mined in NSW mined in the Hunter. Newcastle is the world’s largest tonnage port, with more than 90 million tonnes of coal exported in 2008. This will double to 180 million tonnes by 2013, with the completion of the final phase of a new coal loader. This represents a $900 million investment in the coal industry.
There is also growth due to other industries such as Energy Generation, where more than 40% of the state’s power is generated in the Hunter, with a further 15% generated on the Central Coast.
The Hunter is home to New South Wales’ only two aluminium smelters.
Newcastle Airport, has experienced huge growth, from 214,000 passengers in 2003 to over 1 million in 2010. An aerospace centre has also been established, in anticipation of the arrival of the RAAF’s Super Hornet’s, prior to the Air Force taking delivery of the Joint Strike Fighter later in the decade. This centre is a $485 million project, expected to provide up to 5600 jobs for the region.
The Central Coast, being so close to Sydney and with easy access to the F3 freeway, is home to various industries and distribution centre’s servicing both Sydney and the greater New South Wales area.
All of these large industries employ thousands of people throughout the Hunter and Central Coast, aswell as supporting a wide variety of associated businesses.
The Hunter Valley is the 6th most visited area in Australia. Pristine beaches along the coastline from Newcastle all the way down to the Central Coast, and being home to the oldest and most well-known winemaking district in Australia, producing over $200 million in sales annually, make it a very popular tourist destination, and a great place to live.
The Hunter Expressway, or F3 link, will connect with the Newcastle Link Road at Wallsend and travel west through the Hunter to Branxton, with four interchanges along its course. Work has already began, and with the work due for completion in 2013, a whole new growth corridor will open up in the Hunter, as travel times are reduced throughout the area.
The large amount of long term investment in these areas will keep unemployment low, and capital growth potential high. With property shortages high, vacancy rates are at very low levels, rent returns will remain strong into the foreseeable future. In fact, the National Housing Supply Council (NHSC) says the current gap between housing demand and supply has grown by 100,000 in the last 12 months and warns that Australia must build 300,000 new properties by 2014 to close the gap.
Now is a great time to invest in property, and one of the best ways to invest is with a Thomas Paul
property in the Hunter Valley or Central Coast. Thomas Paul investment properties
have a minimum rental return of 5.2% throughout the Hunter Valley and Central Coast.
Hunter Valley properties have always been well represented in Your Investment Property magazine’s top 100 suburbs throughout Australia for investors. Your Investment Property magazine (Jan 2011) rated Maitland as it’s number one regional hot spot in New South Wales.
Now is a great time to invest in property, but like all journeys, it is always better to go with someone who is experienced, has been there before, and will be with you all the way. So if you’re investing in property, go with someone who will provide you with the greatest support. Go with Thomas Paul.
