How GW Homes helps you build a quality investment property
If you’re looking to invest in residential property in South East Queensland, you’ll no doubt want to enjoy both long term and short term gains – that is, capital growth in the value of your property AND a healthy rental income in the meantime.
By choosing to build with GW Homes, that’s exactly what you’ll get.
Our turnkey package investment properties offer you the convenience of an ‘all-in-one’ solution.
These homes come complete with all the features needed to attract and retain good quality tenants, and bring you solid rental returns.
And because we build investment homes with the same quality focus we use for our owner/builders, you can rest assured you’re investing in a quality asset that will maximise value for years to come.
Should you build or buy a Brisbane investment home?
If you’ve made the decision to invest in property, your next choice is probably between building a new investment home, or buying an existing property.
One big advantage of building an investment home is that you’ll end up with a property that’s been specifically designed and built to be rented out.
By ‘starting from scratch’, you won’t have to compromise on any design details – and that can help you make sure your property is both low-maintenance AND more appealing to tenants.
From the little details like choosing hard-wearing tiles and using bathroom fittings with long warranty periods, to major features like a low-maintenance yard and the right number of bedrooms, there are so many choices you can make to get the most out of your investment home design.
GW Homes can advise you on the many ways you can build an investment home around the needs of tenants.
When you’re looking to choose the right builder for your investment home, you’ll no doubt be looking for a secure building company, offering you the reassurance they’ll be able to complete your property successfully.
GW Homes offer you that security. Having been in business for more than 50 years, we’ve completed thousands of quality homes in South East Queensland.
In fact our track record of delivering homes is so solid, we’ve served as a QBCC panel builder for many years. This means we’re entrusted with completing homes that, for whatever reason, are left incomplete by other builders.
We believe it shows we’re a reliable, dependable choice for building your investment property.
If you decide to build a new investment home, you can look forward to a number of benefits. For example:
1. Stamp duty
When you build an investment home, you’ll only have to pay stamp duty (now called transfer duty in Queensland) on the land you buy, not on the house as well. That could save you thousands compared to buying an existing home – where you pay transfer duty on both house and land.
You’ll also enjoy much higher depreciation on a new house compared to an existing property, which effectively reduces your taxable income.
3. Negative gearing
If you’re borrowing money to finance your investment property, you could also benefit from negative gearing. Again, this could reduce your taxable income (and therefore your tax payable) by offsetting the interest you pay against your income.
4. Capital gains
By choosing an experienced builder that’s well-versed in building investment homes, you can ensure your building costs are kept as low as possible. That gives you the best chance of making a capital gain – which you can use to reinvest in your next investment property.
As with any investment, you should talk to your financial adviser about the benefits of building an investment property for your personal situation.
Since 1966, GW Homes have built quality family homes across Brisbane and throughout South East Queensland. We have the experience and know-how to help you make the most of building your investment home.
With our efficient building processes, we can estimate the completion date of your investment home with great accuracy. This lets you pre-advertise your investment property before it’s even completed – minimising vacancies and maximising your rental returns.
