The Verdict

This property represents a good investment because it’s a Triple Whammy Deal…

High capital growth potential

Logan City has more suburbs with rising sales activity than any other Local Government Area in Australia. Research over time shows that Jobs + Infrastructure + Affordability + Rising Sales Volumes = Price Growth, and Logan City has all four of these factors well and truly covered.

Discount below market value

This property has been listed at $420,000. The estimated market value of the property is $437,000 (valuation attached to the full report) which represents a discount (or instant equity) of $17,000. A skilled negotiator could almost certainly pay even less for this property, and the greater the discount you can negotiate the more instant equity you secure for your portfolio.

Future renovation or development potential

This is a good investment property as is, and can be rented out immediately. But it also provides potential to add value in the future because it is situated on a large double-block that has the potential to be subdivided or developed later on.
