....... BE QUICK!

House and Land packages

We deal directly with Developers and Builders who have a reputation for both high quality, as well as value for money house and land packages. We have stringent criteria for them. They must have integrity and meet the deadlines they promise. They must build the best possible investment homes money can buy, yet with more......more quality, more value, more return on investment. Backed by structural guarantees their properties must stand the test of time - architecturally, structurally and financially.

The Australia Investment Property Network (AIPN) have  house and land packages in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia.  These developments are mostly  in "Muscle Towns" because they are either popular "Fly in - fly out" and "Drive in - drive out" towns or regional towns on the fringes of capital cities that are enjoying  excellent and rapid growth in property prices and rental yields. We have house and land packages from $300,000 to $500,000 in these areas. . Click >>>here for more information and we will contact you right away.


We all have choices - we can "make a living or we can design a lifestyle". We can chose today to be 'wealthy' or we can chose to be the "Aussie battler'  and struggle financially throughout our retirement. Many folks say they do not want to live to 80 to 90 years old. And that's exactly how they feel until they they get to 79 years old and then they want to live another year, and then ....... one more year so life goes and we get to 90 and wonder where the time has gone. In fact longevity has increased by 40% over the last twenty years. Men on average are living until 82 and women until 87 years of age today. Don't say that won't apply to you because if you do not take action NOW you may well have 20 to 25 years of financial hardship. The problem about being financially disadvantaged is "that it takes up all your time" worrying about every dollar you have to spend!  Not much of a life for 20 plus years.

Interest rates are at a 60 year low and if you have not checked to see if you are getting the best deal from your bank within the last 3 months on your mortgage you need to check without delay. There is a reason the banks made $29 billion dollars in profit last year - you paid more interest and fees than you should have. You are making the banks rich. The bank works for it shareholders -  not for you. We can save you tens of thousands of dollars and show you how to stop paying the bank's exorbitant interest and fees.

My No B.S. property market predictions for 2016

Unfortunately, today, the media is saturated with conflicting news about the property market and the share market. Who do you believe? The problem is that the television, newspapers, magazines and social media are given information by individuals, companies and property developers that only have their own self interest at heart. Reporters are starving for sensational news so they can make a name for themselves and then the publication sell media space to readers who soak up misinformation. I prefer to look at the media as a unreliable source where the content needs to be verified by sound research. There are reliable research companies (listed above)  that report regularly on the property market and the real skill is in filtering through these to identify the trends in the market place. Property follows cycles and we need to have a long term strategy in order to make money.

I have given you my opinion about the property market in sections for each State. Not all States may interest you so you can scroll down to the State/s you are interested in. It would be most beneficial for you read the whole article below to get a better understanding about the trends in the market place. 

We need to look at three factors when deciding where we should invest our hard earned money.


1) The trend over the last 10 years, 1 year and last quarter.

2) The amount of money to be spent on infrastructure in the region.

3) The Federal & State Governments commitment to create jobs in a particular region. 

Well that is not as easy as it should be. The trends are relatively easy to obtain. The amount of money to be spent on infrastructure and the commitment to create jobs within a region can change depending on the agenda of the government and this is especially difficult to determine in an election year like we have in 2016. I will cover the property market for the Sates and Territories within the three Factors below:

FACTOR 1 - The trend over the last 10 years, 1 year and last quarter.

I do not pay too much attention to monthly statistics because there are so many influencing factors  and these can be so easily misconstrued.

Let's look at the trends within housing market first as this is a good place to work out trends. Units tend to be more unpredictable because of the variances in supply and demand within a city. For example, if 10 buildings are completed in a specific quarter this could add as many as 1,000 units within that quarter into the market and  a huge oversupply may occur in the short to medium term. most capital cities are already in oversupply and expect rental yields to drop dramatically. Therefore i will concentrate on house prices in this Property Update.


Capital Median Price 10 yrs%pa End Dec'15 Last Qtr
Adelaide $442,500 4.64% 4.80% 3.04%
Brisbane $500,500 4.07% 3.40% 1.00%
Canberra $577,500 4.79% 5.53% 1.69%
Darwin $457,100 6.19% 0.50% -1.32%
Hobart $387,000 2.98% 4.90% 1.81%
Melbourne $737,000 7.24% 13,00% 2.68%
Perth $527,000 3.23% -0.66% 0.57%
Sydney $1,065,500 7.13% 18.36% 1.73%
Australia $517,500 4.61% 6.70% 1.76%










(1)The median price is the middle price of all properties sold within that period and not the average. (2) Information above provided by . Median prices and rental yields may well differ from other published websites sites and research companies.                                                                                      

Looking at the statistics above can be confusing. But look for trends knowing that property values cannot sustain massive growth that are way above the average or norm Sydney and Melbourne house prices skew the median price of houses plus the average growth of property within Australia. If you take the values in regional areas you will see a dismal trend in most regions because of the lack of demand and the end of the mining boom.

Other trends like "Rental Yield" are also good indicators of trends as renters struggle to cope with the cost of living and the decrease in take-home pay of many workers. The high wages paid in mining areas are no longer applicable and workers are accepting lower pay and working longer hours to make up the shortfall in the monthly income.

Rental yields have been declining in most capitals. Combined capital city house rents were recorded at $487 per week in January 2016. Over the past month, house rents rose by 0.1% and over the past three months house rents rose 0.1%.. Over the past year, house rents are -0.3% lower. For as long as CoreLogic RP Data have been tracking rental growth figures,house rents have never before fallen on
an annual basis while annual unit rental growth is occurring at its slowest pace since late 2003.

Over the past 12 months to January 2016 the capitals that had small increases in rental growth were Canberra 1.8%, Melbourne 2.1% and Sydney 1.1%.  The worst was Darwin (13.1%), Perth (8.5%), Brisbane (0.7%), Adelaide(0.4%) and  Hobart (0.2%). Not great news for property investors but when you consider the falls in the Australian stock market of $100 Billion in January 2016 alone -  it still the safest investment right now and rents and yields do change depending on supply and demand - it is a cycle.

As for regional Queensland read  the section "How did my predictions for Queensland in 2015 pan out" below. I will cover regional NSW and Victoria in the next property Update.

If you want more information on the trends in capital cities and regional areas you can contact James Cagney and he will gladly provide the research he has available. 

FACTOR 2 - The amount of money spent on infrastructure in the region.

Let's concentrate on the published major projects over $500 million which are planned for the next few years. These are subject to change as the States fight for a larger share of the infrastructure pie because that means an increase in jobs within the State which leads to more property taxes, land taxes, business taxes, GST etc. etc.

I have dealt  with the property market for each State and Territory individual taking into account the Median Prices in Table 1 and Infrastructure plans in Table 2 in my "NEWS" section on my website. I have given you a brief summary on each State and Territory which will not take you long to read.  Once you have gone through this Article please return to this Property Update because the Sections below entitled  "How did my predictions for Queensland in 2015 pan out"  and "Sydney property values going down....down.....down" does go into far more research about these two markets.


I will be going into more specific detail for each of the above cities and towns in the next Property Updates. The next Property Update is due end  March 2016. If you are looking to invest in a particular city or regional area within Australia please contact James Cagney and he will gladly provide whatever research he has available.

Sydney property values ....?

Well first of all you can not classify Sydney as one market. With over 4 million people with well over 150 suburbs where property values are over $1 million in value you can not compare this to any other city in Australia (with the possible exception of Melbourne). You almost have suburbs within suburbs in Sydney and prices vary significantly from street to street in many suburbs. So how can you make comparisons and predictions in a city like this?

Is Sydney overpriced? To read more about about this go to this Article .

How did my predictions for Queensland in 2015 pan out?

I am going to be my own harsh critic on previous predictions I made about the property market in January 2015 and show the impact this will have in 2016.   You can simply read below or you can go to the article I wrote in January 2015 which I edited in after Cyclone Marsha.

Cyclone Marcia did result in a temporary increase in the rental market in and around Rockhampton and Gracemere as people moved out of their damaged homes and tradies moved in to repair the damage. Click to continue reading this important article. 

Follow the Infrastructure and the Property Cycle in 2016

You have to follow the infrastructure to be able to predict where the growth in house prices is going to be over the next few years. As Tom Cruise said in in the movie Jerry Maguire "Show me the money". 

Once you know where the money is and estimate where the properties are in the "Property Cycle and Cycle of Market emotions" model you will be in a better position to determine where to invest your hard earned money. Click on the adjacent image for a larger version of the model.

There are four key drivers for property growth:

(1) Employment

(2) Affordability

(3) Population Growth

(4) Rental Yields

New jobs create confidence in a region. What is evident is that State Governments are selling assets to finance infrastructure. Nationally we have around 100 approved projects each over $500 million. To read reading click on article.

Inspiration of the Month

What to look forward to in the next Property Update

The next Property update will have specific areas of high growth and the different options available for investment. I will also share more of my experience and knowledge with you. There are obviously many ways to make money through property investment. What is the alternative - the "Share Market". The share market has lost billions over the past few years and your Superannuation is closely tied to the massive rise and falls of share market - just like a dead body with a concrete weight at the bottom of a river. The problem is when you retire and you have to go through these rise and falls of the share market you may well have to go back to work. The government does allow you to make limited pocket money whilst you retire.

You know they said that the Titanic was unsinkable. When you only relying on the government pension or allocated pension (Super) to keep you comfortable in your retirement think about the Titanic. You have to get out of your comfort zone and take control of your own future.  Stay tuned for more exciting news in the next Property Update.
