Why Purchase a Property Off the Plan?

Buying property an Off The Plan Property, (i.e. before a building has been constructed) is increasingly popular in Australia and purchasers have found this a very profitable real estate investment option.

Benefits include:

  • Detailed plans, models or displays of the proposed building are readily available for viewing
  • You can select from a range of various internal colour schemes and high quality finishes
  • You may qualify for significant depreciation tax savings on property, which are greater than those available on existing buildings if purchased for investment purposes
  • Greater flexibility with your finances making this an affordable investment strategy. Secure your property with a low deposit of just 10% with the balance being paid on completion. This gives you time to organise your mortgage finance, while locking in a good investment
  • No-effort capital growth – while property prices increase, so might your existing equity
  • Investing in a property development is cheaper earlier rather than later, as you are securing a property at today’s price, but don’t have to pay the full purchase price until construction is complete
  • Improved rental return - tenants like moving into brand new homes, and you may be able to charge a rent premium
  • Stamp duty on the full purchase price at the time you enter the contract is not required
  • The ability to buy today and settle in the future
  • Allows time to save and prepare
