There are plenty of strategies an investor could use to get on track to some clever property purchases, but how do you get there without working two jobs or skimping by on Vegemite on toast every evening? We enlisted the help of Australia’s top property strategists and found out

    this article it's full of myth! if you think you getting 8% from your intereste you are dreaming.. and if you think with $30.000 deposit you can buy a 2/3 brd apt in a capital city, you are seriously in the wrong business...

    The only way you will get an 8% return on your investment is through the stockmarket, but who knows if you can get that through a commercial property.
    If you buy in the northern suburbs of Melbourne 12km from the cbd you can get a 2 bedroom villa unit for about $380K. Forget 3 bedrooms all together.
    My only problem with the optimists scenario is how long do you keep property 1 for? with a 5% deposit the stamp duty alone will kill you as will LMI. You'd have to keep property 1 for at least 4 years to make those expenses up.
    I suppose Joshua could re-evaluate he will want to marry, have kids, etc. If he has time its a great strategy to get a big enough deposit to buy a big enough house to live in mortgage free and still work.

    Anyway you have to work on two jobs in the first part of your life so you are able to invest and have passive income in the second part.

    8% yield is possible, if you really search the market and wait patiently to buy the right one.
    I bought a shop top housing in 2009 in the inner city. Purchase price of $855.000. Rent out the shop for 45k and the residential on top for $30k.
    Subdivision is good way to increase the the value of the property. By the way it takes time from settlement to settlement. Practically takes 18 months.

    If you try any of this you will probably end up broke

    After purchasing the first property with LTR 95% wouldn't you need more than a year to settle the debt before purchasing the second property. Besides who will be willing to lend 250k to someone for investment without collateral. I don't understand the time frame between all those purchases.

    I'm missing something. In the first scenario she talks about buying 5 properties but these are all negatively geared so how is that turned into the 90k passive income in 17 years time? Does he start paying down the loans or? Selling them off one by one? She hasn't completely the picture for me. Can somebody fill me in? Thx

    Since when was $70,000 the average income?
  • Colin | 18 Jan 2017, 10:48 AM Agree 0
    According to google first page "The ABS says the average individual wage in Australia in November 2013 was $57,980 before tax. The average full-time wage is $74,724 before tax.May 8, 2014"

    The only people I know that are getting 70-150k a year are working in the mines for a single job however possible to patch it together with two part time jobs or one full time and one part time job to get a more real 70k-80k figure salary. The average statistic fail to mention all the people on centerlink or just unemployed plus working casual jobs.

    To me it look like country propaganda when most people working a single full time job 40 hours a week earning 40-60k but then again so much information bias on the internet. 7 years not going to give you a passive income of 90k a year without keeping a job not even 21 years going to do that but factoring in a bit more data that "realistic" in the next decade or so he could be earning 120k a year bringing up the amount of money that is going to be "saved".

    Then again with what I've seen even with people earning over quarter million dollars between man/wife they barely have a dollar next to their names by the end of the year it all goes towards luxury so saving is hard if it was easy banks be out of business.

    Discipline is such a good thing to practice! Cutting down the vices that make you spend money every now and then will indeed, save you alot of money for early retirement. Aiming for investing as strategy for earning such big amount - $90,000? I agree with the idea but to think that earning such amount will need back-up (financially) in case your plan did not work out. Anyway, there's no need to rush for earning big, one investment at time is good enough, planning for the nest one should be done if the plan work well and if you already earn (twice or thrice) of the amount you purchased for the first one.

    In my opinion, saving big amount of money has lots of plenty of ways just creative and have a good plan to set yourself for the goal. You would probably practice first in visualizing your goals. Many people do this with paying off debt, but it works just as well with savings goals.

    Income of $70,000:
    Rent of $350 per week = $18,200
    Utilities, food, vehicle, health insurance = $30,000
    He's left with $20k per year (AT THE VERY BEST)

    LVR of 95%, 7% growth, annual yield of 8% $30k deposit and disposable income of $20k to get a 2 bedroom apartment?

    Wait for 20 years (and in the mean time live on $20k a year, don't go out, don't have a relationship or a family, just sleep sleep in front of charity door...yep, these guys are giving great advice for a healthy, fulfilled, and educated life!
