Climbing property values in Melbourne and Sydney have made the prospect of ‘rent-vesting’ more appealing to many. Rent-vesting is when you rent where you live, whilst owning and purchasing property purely for investment purposes. Often this enables you to live in a superior home and location without the same level of financial outlay to purchase the asset. This allows you to enjoy the lifestyle which comes with living in your ideal location, while still growing your property investment asset base.
The effects of rent-vesting are becoming visible on the Adelaide property market. There has been a steady increase in property values over the last year, driven by interstate investors. Our property education course partner, Peter ‘the Property Professor’ Koulizos has featured on ABC radio to talk about the influences shaping the Adelaide property market and areas to consider if you’re looking to buy.
