The answers to these questions are of paramount importance to property investors. However, the research involved can be overwhelming if you’re not a professional. Fortunately, our buyers’ agents are property investment experts, and they can help design an investment strategy that is just right for you in the context of your needs and goals, and the current property investment market in Australia.
Our buyers’ agents have a finger directly on the pulse of real estate in Australia and will give you exactly what you need to help you make a solid and informed investment decision. Propertybuyer’s buyers' agents combine insider knowledge and market connections with extensive research and buying experience to help new and experienced property investors make the best decisions possible.
Property is a great way to invest your money and can provide excellent returns, if you do it correctly. As the country’s most awarded Buyers’ Advocates, we’ve given over 3000 property investors independent and professional advice on how to invest in real estate in Australia. If you engage with Propertybuyer, we’ll guide you through the following steps to develop a successful property investment plan.
Investing in property starts with extensive research. We use your personal requirements as a base to design a property investment strategy for your individual situation.
Once we’ve come up with a personalised investment plan, we use our unique data platform, “Suburb SelectorTM”, to conduct extensive market analysis, which enables us to identify suburbs and properties in Australia that are most likely to deliver the best returns.
We ensure that every opportunity is evaluated against dozens of factors, including local market conditions, comparable sales and property specifications. We then use your requirements to shortlist the investment opportunities most suitable to your needs. The shortlist comprises properties advertised on the market, as well as the “off-market” opportunities our buyers’ agents are so skilled at uncovering.
Once you’ve decided on a particular property, your buyers’ advocate will carry out an appraisal and provide you with an accurate estimated value for your potential purchase.
Once you’ve made the final decision about which property you want to buy, your buyers’ advocate will negotiate the best price and terms to secure the property. They’ll also arrange inspections and facilitate the exchange of contracts.
Suburb SelectorTM is a comprehensive property investment analysis platform using over 35 key criteria, including annual capital growth, median rent, rental yield, vacancy rate, number of sales, days on market, population, gross weekly income, median monthly mortgage repayments, online search demand, and many more. It doesn’t matter if you want to invest in student accommodation in Melbourne or have your eye on the prestige property investment market in Sydney, because Suburb SelectorTM provides property data for every suburb in Australia.
We use live data platforms to pinpoint the top suburbs for high capital growth and rental yield for our property investors.

Nick at Propertybuyer was fantastic. His knowledgeable and professional approach saved us time and stress and allowed us to confidently move forward buying our first house. We are overseas Australian citizens so he certainly made the entire process seamless. He even managed to negotiate the property below list price which we wouldn’t have known was possible. 100% would recommend Propertybuyer and will use them / Nick again if we are fortunate enough to be in the position to buy another property in the future.
Jonathan & Rhiannon
Jonathan & Rhiannon Wenzel engaged Propertybuyer to purchase them an investment property in the Inner West.
They are a professional couple working overseas and have been out of the Sydney market for a long time, therefore were not fully aware of what they could purchase within their budget.
Working from their Brief, that was for a 3 bedroom non-strata property, I managed to find them 60 Ferris Street, Annandale. This three bed free-standing property with parking was a good buy. I managed to purchase the property at a reduced price point as the property had been over priced previously. It also rented out very quickly for $1,000 pw through Morton property management.
Working with Jonathan & Rhiannon was a pleasure and a great experience- they were excellent communicators (despite the time difference) and I was able to present them with videos of any shortlisted property candidates and expedite the successful purchase of the property.
Getting Rich onboard to find me my perfect property was the best decision I've ever made (not once but twice). My family have been lucky enough to have worked with Rich over the past 25 years - and this time with the wonderful Nick. Nick amazed me with his enthusiasm and knowledge of the area I was looking to buy. Their advice was extremely invaluable, making the negotiating and decision process much easier. Their expertise gave me confidence that I was purchasing at the right price and I don't believe I would have been successful without their involvement. Property buying can be quite daunting but Rich and Nick were simply wonderful with their guidance and genuine care. They love what they do and I have no hesitation in referring them to friends and family (which I have). Major gratitude to both Rich and Nick for their generosity of time, patience and going above and beyond!
Working with Jenny and her brief was an absolute pleasure. As a hard -working, time poor professional person, Jenny just didn’t have the time & property experience to find her dream property. Her brief was to find a property similar to one she had viewed earlier on in the year but wasn’t in a position to buy at that stage. A two story terrace with character, close to the action of Balmain/Rozelle and minutes away from getting a good coffee!
Contacting all the good local agents and being quick to respond to the first real good prospect was key to key to my success, along with being able to negotiate a price actually just below what I considered to be the market value of the property. So, success with the purchase of 20 Wise Street, Rozelle – a great new enchanting new home for Jenny!
My experience with propertybuyer and their Brisbane team - Glen & Lisa was seamless and one that I will be recommending to friends and family many times over.
I approached propertybuyer as a first time investor looking to get into the market and secure an investment-grade property but I didn't know where to start or how to begin the search especially investing interstate. Glen and Lisa was able to highlight a few key areas with sound reasonings behind each area. Once we settled on an area, they were quick to pass through many high quality properties from the countless inspections they performed every Saturday.
Where Glen and Lisa's value shined through was when they avoided me paying too much on the first couple of offers that were made on a property. During COVID lockdowns, they was able to secure me a sought-after property off-market and our offer was accepted promptly through their seasoned negotiation skills.
On top of the above, the knowledge I have come away with, and propertybuyer's ability to help you make a decision quickly is well worth the investment and I will be knocking on propertybuyers door again shortly when I am ready to find my next property investment. Couldn't recommend highly enough

To start investing in real estate you need to understand the key drivers of the property investment market, as well as the inherent risks and rewards involved. Investing in real estate requires you to have a good credit history and the ability to obtain finance so that you can leverage your equity and obtain the best return on investment. Real estate investors should be very careful about where they invest in property in Australia, and should engage real estate investment experts and local property buyers’ agents who can guide them through the entire buying process.
Investing in real estate can still deliver excellent ROI, if you choose the right location, the right kind of property, and manage your risks. Choosing where to invest in property is the key to your success. It makes sense to engage expert property investment agents as they can leverage extensive years of experience and local knowledge to help you make a wise selection of properties. They’ll help you to whittle down the list until you find the perfect property in which to invest.
The amount of profit or equity that you make as a property investor depends on where you invest and the investment strategies that you choose. The higher up the property investment food chain you go the bigger the profit you will make. For example, buying prestige property in Sydney could deliver outstanding capital growth, while large investments in the industrial property market could deliver higher yields. Buying properties off the plan typically means you make very little profit, whereas buying established properties and renovating them or developing properties from scratch gives you a much greater rate of return.
Property investment is very rewarding and can create bedrock wealth for your retirement. Having a good job with stable income is essential in order to qualify for a bank loan. If you already own a home and have some available equity, however, then leveraging that equity safely into an investment property is a smart move.
Once you have obtained finance pre-approval, you should set out to fully understand the dynamics of the property market. Real estate investors should learn what micro- and macro-economic factors drive the property market. New property investors would be wise to get help from qualified real estate investment experts who understand where to invest in real estate in Australia, and who can provide independent assistance to help you navigate the property investment market.
Property as an asset class is an excellent investment if the right location and property types are carefully selected. Potential real estate and property investors need only look at the performance of median residential property prices in Sydney and Melbourne to see the significant returns that long-term investors can make by buying well located property. Investors seeking advice on where to invest in real estate should choose their advisors carefully. It’s important to ensure that any advice given is not tainted by commission driven sales people. You can get independent property investment help from buyers’ agents who are licenced in the state in which you intend to buy, who have a strong track record and at least five years’ experience.
To invest in Australian property, you can buy either as an Australian citizen or as a foreign investor. If you hold permanent residency (or are an Australian citizen) then you can buy established property. If you are classified as a foreign buyer, then you can only buy brand new property as regulated by the FIRB (Foreign Investment Review Board) guidelines.
The first step to considering where to invest in Australia is to get your finance pre-approved. The next step is to consider which property investment strategy will work best for your individual situation. The strategy takes into account, among others, tax, income, and stage of life considerations. Following this, you need to consider which suburbs to target. Experienced property buyers’ agents can provide you with the local information necessary to guide your decision.
Property investment is not rocket science. In fact, real estate investing is simply a matter of understanding what drives the numbers. It is critical as a property investor to create the right strategy, then choose the best location, and finally the right property type. The key numbers you need to consider are the purchase price (buy close to the median), the rent return (yield), the potential for capital growth, and the running expenses (especially borrowing costs). Using a simple spreadsheet is a good idea, and you could also consult a property investment expert who has specialised software to crunch the numbers.
Property investors typically want high capital growth and high yield. It is possible to find properties with both a positive cashflow and strong capital growth if you know where to invest in Australia’s real estate market. The actual ROI (Return on Investment) for property investors can be very high if you know how to leverage your cash or equity in the most tax effective manner. Real estate investment in Sydney for houses typically returns less than 3% gross, while in Brisbane it is easier to find houses with yields of 5% or above. However, the capital growth from properties held in Sydney and Melbourne over the past 10 years has seen prices rise more than 100% in some suburbs.
If you want to buy an investment property in Sydney, you should consult with local expert buyers’ agents who can provide reliable data and insights to make a wise decision.
