First Home Buyers

How first home buyers can enter the runaway Sydney property market

With the median property price in Sydney now pushing the $800k mark and rising quickly, just how does a First Home Buyer get into the runaway Sydney market? The short answer is with great difficulty unless you’ve got wealthy parents. For most average couples it’s impossible….but there is a way if you’re prepared to think outside the square.

Many couples face this problem and are discouraged and walk away but a few have realised that it is possible by using a multi-step process using positive cashflow investment property as stepping stones to their dream of owning their own home in Sydney in a suburb of their choosing.

The Strategy

  • Rent in the area that you want to live but can’t afford to buy.
  • Buy an investment property in an area that you can afford.
  • Make sure its positive cash flow because these fund themselves and have money left over each week… you make a profit from day one!
  • As soon as you have some equity and/or savings buy another one.
  • Build a positively geared property portfolio.
  • When you have enough equity, you can sell all or part of your portfolio to give you a suitable deposit for your dream home.
  • Alternatively, you may have come to realise the benefits of creating wealth through positively geared property and continue building your wealth and retirement income, still living in your favourite area.
