What Makes a Good Rental Property?

✅ You know you’re ready to invest.  ✅ You know you want to invest in real estate.  But that’s where the checklist ends, and the questions begin.  How do you know what makes a good rental property for investment? And how do you know whether or not the property you purchase will help you gain income?  Your main objective is to find a suitable property to align with your property investment plan. We pride ourselves on helping people find the perfect property to achieve their ideal lifestyle and financial goals. We always look for properties with high growth projections and/or rental income. Here are the three main target points that you will need to consider when choosing a property:

1. Location, Location, Location

This is the most important criteria. It’s important to understand that location does most of the heavy lifting for your real estate investment success. In a post-pandemic world, location has become increasingly important. People want to be able to walk, bike, or drive to everything within 20 minutes. Everyone is looking for a “good neighbourhood,” although everyone’s definition of that is different.  Some good questions to ask:
  • What has been the growth of the area over the past few years?
  • What are the accessibility, appearance, and amenities of a neighborhood?
  • What is the property’s proximity to things like busy roadways, shopping centers, and community centers? 
  • Does the property include land?
  • How close are schools, childcare and universities and tafes, and how close to major cities?

2. Infrastructure 

The infrastructure of a city plays a significant role in shaping what would be considered a competitive city. Developers and investors are attracted to competitive landscapes, making the property value and potential for return on investment higher. 

What is the accessibility to public transportation? What are the city’s or developments plans for improving roadways or creating bike paths? What is within walking distance of the property? Shifting market trends have created more demand for compact, walkable developments. 

How far is the nearest hospital? What is the school system like? Are there parks? These are just a few aspects to ponder when considering the infrastructure surrounding the property you want to purchase as an investment. 


3. Demographic 

Demographics data, such as age, race, gender, income, crime risk, school quality, migration patterns, and population growth, combine to create the characteristics of a neighborhood. As a result, major demographic shifts can have a significant impact on real estate trends for several decades to follow.

Understanding your location’s demographics will give you important insights into things like your prospective rental pool to possible maintenance issues to expect. 

Here’s a helpful tip when considering your perfect occupant: Don’t make it personal. To invest strategically, removing your heart from the equation is essential to approach your investment property with sound logic, detachment, and an objective eye.
