Property Prices Increase Since the Federal Government Election: 4 Benefits for Brokers
The Federal Labour Government’s first budget, announced in October 2022, is set to have a major impact on the housing market in Australia. This budget aims to address the country’s housing needs, and this could have a huge effect on brokers.
So, how is this having a huge effect on brokers?
Since the Federal Government Election, the government has set up several initiatives to help solve this housing problem. This includes the National Housing Infrastructure Facility to invest $575M in social and affordable housing, the National Housing Supply and Affordability Council to advise the government on how to solve the crisis and along with other initiatives.
And yet, in In NSW alone, population is expected to grow on average by over 85,000 people each year until 2041. This is going to accelerate demand for housing.
Brokers will need to be aware of the potential changes that this budget and the government’s policies could bring and how it could affect their business. It is important for brokers to understand what the Federal Labour Government’s first budget, and its policies, mean for them and how they can best prepare for these changes.
1) Increasing Population
As the population continues to grow, there is an increasing demand for property. This has led to increased rental income for investors, making it a viable investment option.
Location, rental management, and optimising finance are all part of what is required to take advantage of this lucrative market. Investors will require tailored advice and assistance.
With the right guidance, investors can make informed decisions that will maximise their returns and minimise their risks.
2) Increasing Prices
For property investors, rising property prices are a blessing and a curse. On one hand, higher prices mean more opportunities for investment. On the other hand, it can be difficult to know if you are buying at the top of the market.
Researching the property market, including trends in property prices, rental rates, vacancy rates, and economic indicators such as interest rates, GDP, and employment rates will help to understand the current state of the market.
A skilled advisor can help both investors and homeowners understand the market forces at play and help them make informed decisions.
3) Increasing Equity
Investing in property can be a lucrative venture, especially when values increase faster than expected. This can tempt investors to use their equity to expand their portfolio. However, it is important to know how much equity to use to maximize their returns without taking on too much risk.
4) Increasing Interest Rates
The increasing interest rates have been a cause of concern for investors around the world.
As the rates go up, investments become more expensive, and this can impact the profitability of an investment property. Additionally, higher interest rates also increase the cost of borrowing money and make it more difficult to obtain finance.
It’s important to conduct a cash flow analysis to determine the impact of rising interest rates on a property’s cash flow. The analysis will help identify any potential cash flow shortfalls and adjust an investment strategy accordingly.
For brokers this is a great opportunity. Getting in front of investors and guiding them on how to better structure their finances can help them better manage their commitments and ensure they are making the best use of their resources.
Becoming a trusted advisor for your clients is a huge responsibility. It requires a deep understanding of the client’s situation and the ability to make informed decisions about their future. With the right tools, training, and support, you can become their most trusted advisor.
