It is exciting to finally be checking out land for sale for your own investment. If it’s a residential one, however, note that there are several considerations that you have to make so that you can make the most out of your purchase. It’s not just the style of the house that you should be thinking about, or how you’ll go about its interior design, but rather all other practical aspects of the purchase, such as location, amenities, and cost.

Location

The cliché “Location! Location! Location!” is a cliché for a very good reason—it’s been oft repeated because there is truth to it. Even for residential properties, location is very important because it can make all the difference in terms of comfort, convenience, and safety.

Whether you’re living on your own or you have children with you, it’s important that you invest in property that is not only good in size, but also is in a good neighborhood that will have everything you need, and if possible, more. Is it close to your workplace? What about the children’s school? Are there nearby parks, entertainment venues, and community institutions like hospitals or the police department? These will help shape and define your living experience in the said location, so look up these things, too.

Amenities

Do you want to live on a farm? If that’s the case, check the property’s capacity for important utilities, too, like water, sewage, storage/barn, among others. Ideally, the property should at least be set up for these so that you can simply move in and make minimal adjustments later on. Sometimes you’ll find a land for sale that does have these things already, but in certain cases, you may need to be more specific in your search and get help from a professional.

Cost

As with any purchase, knowing how much you can spend is a good way to set a budget. It also helps filter options a lot faster. By setting a budget, you can simply weed out those properties which, although they may seem ideal for you, do not meet your financial capacity. It not only saves you money, ultimately, but also saves you a whole lot of time.

Being a first-time property buyer can be exciting, but also confusing. That’s why it’s highly recommended that you seek the professional advice of industry experts, such as real estate agencies like Lion Land Marketing.

It is no secret that investing in properties is a fantastic addition to any investment portfolio. While the most common way of investing in properties is buying and selling homes, savvy investors with a little more capital may be interested in acquiring land for sale in Brisbane and having a home constructed. If this sounds like something you would prefer over purchasing an existing home, then you may also want to consider building a duplex on top of the land you purchase.

Having a duplex constructed is a fantastic investment because it creates equity rather quickly with a high ROI. Additionally, duplexes also come with lower stamp duties, insurance costs, and the like. Of course, there’s also the fact that you essentially have two different properties that do not require subdivision.

If you are interested in purchasing land for sale in order to build a duplex as an investment, there are a few things you must consider from purchasing the land down to construction. Before proceeding, make sure you keep the following tips in mind:

Work with a trusted land brokerage

First off, you’ll need to find the right plot of land for your duplex. In such cases, it is better to work with a trusted and experienced land brokerage like Lion Land Marketing. These professionals are more in touch with the nuances of purchasing land as opposed to simply buying existing homes. They can also help you with the paperwork necessary to gain a permit allowing you to have a duplex built.

Know whether you want to sell or rent out the duplex

Duplexes provide you with a lot of flexibility in terms of cashing in your investment. You can easily rent out both units or choose to rent one out and sell the other–just make sure that you have a clear idea of what you plan to do once the duplex is finished. This will give you a better idea of how much of a return you’ll actually be getting back from your investment. In many cases, renting out both units tends to yield about 6.5 percent.

Find a reputable builder with experience in building duplexes

Lastly, it’s a good idea to find a home builder that has experience in constructing duplexes. Although it may look simple, designing and constructing a duplex can be difficult. Choosing a builder with little experience may end up with you needing to put more money into the project or even construction delays. Try asking your land broker if he or she can provide you with a shortlist of recommended builders.

Unlike other industries, real estate does not necessarily have a season. There are folks selling off and buying property at any given time of the year, mostly because people tend to be very mobile, regardless of time. However, for a first-timer looking for a good piece of land for sale, is there such a thing as a good time to buy?

In-Demand Always

While it’s true that real estate will always be in demand, it’s important for potential buyers to be on the lookout for ways that can give them as much of a good deal as possible with their transaction. What makes a certain time a good time, then?

The foremost consideration is for you to understand that a “good time” to buy is not going to be dependent upon the weather or season, but rather your financial status. If you have the financial capability to take on the responsibility of mortgage for a property, then that is a good time for you to buy.

Do remember as well, however, that when it comes to having a budget, it’s not just about having the finances to settle the down payment upfront, or ensure that you’ll have something for the mortgage payments. Rather, think of it as a consideration for long-term. The cost of buying a house is not just a one-time thing; your expenses for it don’t stop upon completion of sale. There is the maintenance that you will have to also bear in mind; the bigger the property, the higher the cost of maintenance will most likely be. So, do also think about this when choosing the kind of property you want to buy.

Take Advantage of Winter

Sure, it was mentioned above that looking for land for sale need not be limited to a particular season alone. However, there are certain advantages to factoring this into your hunt, too. Winter, for example, is a great time to look at real estate because, well, it’s not the most convenient time of the year. Then again, it also is a great opportunity to check just how sturdy or comfortable the property is going to be.  Heavy wind, rain, and snow will impact structures within properties differently than summer heat. If you look around during this time, you can easily spot if the property is prone to any seasonal problems like flooding, for example.

Other than that, winter time is not usually the time that people are in a shopping mood, so sellers are more likely to welcome negotiations and concede to terms that are more favourable for the buyer, especially if they have an immediate need to offload the property.

Before you proceed with any transactions, make sure to work with a professional agency that can help you navigate the world of real estate. Firms like Lion Land Marketing can help you find the right property for you, whatever the season.

There comes a point when you feel like you’re not making the best financial decision anymore by maintaining a rented apartment. All the money that you pay your landlord is going to a temporary abode that you won’t be able to claim as your own in the long run. Once this realisation hits, you’ll most likely start looking into the option of buying your own property.

Once you’ve decided to move forward with this plan, you can get started on scouting for quality residential land for sale that best fits your needs and preferences. Here are some helpful tips for beginners like you to get you started on your property hunt.

Location

As with any property consideration, the foremost element you should be looking at is its location. Ideally, it should be able to give you the level of convenience and security that you need. Especially if you have children, it would be advantageous to get a block that not only gives them easy access to their school and parks, but also would allow them to enjoy some playtime right within your own yard.

Of course, it’s also a huge plus if your own transport needs are going to be easily met. Long drives or commutes can eventually put a strain not only on your transport budget but also your overall health and well-being in the long run, so finding a good location for your new home really does matter.

Block Size

When buying property, it’s easy to be lured in by the aesthetic design of the house or the vast acreage that comes along with it. However, you also should be mindful of how much space you would actually need. Keep in mind that your property is going to be your responsibility—this includes regular cleaning, maintenance, and mortgage costs.

The size of the property should be something that would be sufficient for you and your family’s needs, especially if you are working on a budget. Dream big, sure, but also be realistic and practical, precisely because owning a house is not just playing house.

Hire Professional Help

Not a lot of people realise this, but hiring a professional agency is just about the best thing you can do for yourself when you’re out looking to buy property. It can be the Wild West out there, especially if you have no particular know-how in the real estate industry. Agencies like Lion Land Marketing, for example, are well-equipped to assist potential buyers like yourself so you can make the most out of your real estate purchase.

If you want to try your hand in investing in real estate property in QLD, it’s advisable that you first familiarise yourself with the available options out there in the market. There are many different types of viable land for sale, and it’s an opportunity that you would want to make the most of while it’s ripe for the picking.

To give you a head start, here’s a quick, informative overview on some of the more common types of real estate property you can invest in.

Residential land – As the name suggests, this is offered primarily for those who are looking to put up a home. These blocks of land can be located in a more suburban area of a state or region. There are some properties that only offer the land, while there are others that come with a house and land package, making it convenient for you.

Acreage Land – this type of land pertains to a larger-sized property compared to the standard residential. Because of its size, there are many other possibilities for its use. It can be broken down into single blocks that are owned by the general public, or it could instead be sub-divided into properties owned by developers. Acreage Land can also be used for subdivision housing. Therefore, you can have an acreage land that contains within it several other types of properties, such as a mix of residential and commercial properties.

Englobo – An englobo property is otherwise known in Australia as an undeveloped lot, which can potentially be transformed into subdivisions, according to the existing land use provision. This group of lots is already zoned to accommodate such developments in the future. So in case you don’t necessarily have anything in mind as of yet for the land, you can buy the englobo and team up with a developer who would know what to do with it.

Development Approval Land – This type of land essentially means that it has the permission of the local government to be developed as the owner sees fit. If you happen to have land that is subject to DA, you need to determine which particular kind of approval you’ll need. There are three of them: planning consent, building rules consent, and land division consent. The consent you will need will ultimately depend on what kind of developer you want to do with it in the first place, so settle that issue first.

It can seem overwhelming and daunting, having to pick a type of property that can give you the most returns for your investment. To make the right choice, consult with professionals in Queensland, such as Lion Land Marketing.

If you think it’s time for you to take the big leap and go for a major investment, you might want to start looking at land for sale. Not only is it something practical, but it’s also something that will prove beneficial in the long run. Among the primary reasons why real estate is such a good investment is because its value appreciates over time, unlike other objects that lose theirs the older they get.

In order for you to make the most out of the investment, though, you should first ensure that you are making the right purchase. Here are some helpful tips you can consider when deciding on a purchase.

Set the Budget

The budget is a crucial element in buying real estate property, not only because it will be the one thing that will afford you the property you want, but also because it will set the limits for your search. You can’t spend what you don’t have, and you can’t loan what you don’t know you need. By setting the budget, you are given a comprehensive overview of how much leeway you can make with your choices almost immediately.

Anything that goes beyond that set budget won’t even be up for consideration. It trims your options right off the bat, and it keeps your options realistic.

Choose the Location

Your choices for location will also be naturally dependent on your budget. There are areas that are more expensive than others, such as town centres or business districts. Apart from that, your choice for location will also depend on your purpose for buying property. If it’s for residential purposes, then suburban areas are more fitting for your family’s needs. If you’d like to put up a commercial space, an area with large foot traffic could be ideal. Otherwise, you can buy a farm or a ranch if you want better privacy and to be closer to nature.

Look Ahead

Going back to the concept of real estate as investment, it’s important for you to try and look ahead and get a feel for what your future prospects could be like should you decide to sell the property later on. If there is a huge possibility of the area becoming even more developed in the future, then you can also look forward to property values going up along with it. This puts you in a good position to invest while the value is still relatively lower.

These are just some of the more basic tips for buying real estate. For proper guidance, it’s best to seek professional advice from agencies in Brisbane, such as Lion Land Marketing.

Residential land is one of the most accessible types of property that you can successfully invest in, as long as you do it right. You can use it either for your own personal use or for business purposes. Not all residential lands are created equal, though. There are differences to them, and it would do you well to know about them before deciding on land for sale.

The Australian Dream Home

According to recent studies, Australians in general dream of having a house that can fit in four bedrooms, a couple of bathrooms, and maybe a two-car garage. For this kind of structure, a block around 665 sq. m will be required. You are, of course, free to choose the type of land and structure you’d like to own. At the very least, however, it’s good to have an idea of what options are available in the market.

Single Blocks

If you’re interested in investing in land just for your own personal use, you’d want to look for single blocks, which are usually owned by the general public. Among the considerations you should factor in are the location, nearby amenities, accessibility, block size, and cost, among many others.

Subdivision Land

For developers who are looking for new locations to expand their commercial properties, subdivision lands are perfect to build entire networks of communities, whether big or small. Once more, the location of the property will prove crucial as this will ultimately determine the development’s appeal to the market and its price. The amenities and other structures will be put up within the property anyway so at least have a good plan as to what you will include within the subdivision to make it as convenient as possible for the residents.

Multi-Purpose Residential Land

Still just trying to gain your footing in the real estate business? Buying an entire subdivision land may be too much for you to handle right now, in which case, you can opt for something a bit smaller first. Duplex-type properties, as well as land suitable for townhouse units make for great options. As long as you plot the division of the land to accommodate your intended number of units, then it should be a good land choice.

There are many more different kinds of land for sale in Queensland, Brisbane, and elsewhere, available on the market – that’s why it’s advisable that you carefully study your decision based on your needs and your plan’s feasibility. To get you started, seek professional help from real estate agencies like Lion Land Marketing.

Investing in real property is one of the most important and smartest things you can do, especially if you are interested in expanding your portfolio. There are a lot of premiums on owning land, precisely because unlike other tangible properties, a land’s value appreciates over time. The amount by which this occurs depends on how well the property is maintained, what use is made of it, and how much development occurs in its surrounding areas.

With all of these things possibly happening over short or long periods of time, you can look forward to having a valuable asset that you can successfully monetise with well-thought-out planning and strategy. You shouldn’t go for just any first land for sale you find in the market, though. Here are some tips that could prove helpful to you in your search for a good real estate investment.

Determine Land Use

What you will use the land for will ultimately decide a lot of the other considerations that must be made when buying land, such as area size and cost. If it’s residential, would you prefer to do a two- or multiple-storey house, or is bungalow going to be sufficient for you? How much space will you need for parking, and what kind of amenities or features would you like to have in your yard? If it’s commercial, you must ascertain first if it’s a building you’ll put up or a single-level structure. Once you have this information, you can further narrow down your search.

Choose Ideal Location

The location of your real estate property should fit its purpose. If it’s intended for commercial space, then obviously it must be someplace where there is going to be a lot of traffic. On the other hand, if it’s residential, you’d want someplace that’s going to give you and your family the security and convenience according to your needs. Check, as well, if it’s close enough to other important facilities and modes of transportation.

Water Supply

This may not necessarily be an immediate concern among buyers because they at times assume it’s going to be automatically included in the property. However, to be a truly smart investor, you must find out early where the water for the property is being sourced from. This can also affect your budget and the type of infrastructure you can put up on the property, after all.

For these concerns, it’s best to seek professional advice from real estate agencies, such as Lion Land Marketing, so you can find the best land for sale in Brisbane suited for your needs.

The phrase ‘invest in real estate,’ often conjures images of buying built properties and structures, such as homes, warehouses, office buildings, and the like. However, real estate also involves vacant land. Though not as initially enticing as owning a functional property, vacant land does present immense cash flow potential. Here are five reasons you should seriously consider investing in a vacant land for sale in Queensland.

You Don’t Have to Replace or Renovate Anything

When you buy a building with the intention to sell it in the future, you may need to upgrade certain features to make the property more enticing to buyers. On the other hand, with vacant land, you have nothing to repair, renovate or replace. All you need to concern yourself with is finding a buyer who will find the land suitable for development.

It Is Easier to Multiply Your Investment

Vacant land is cheaper than developed land, so you can potentially buy more in terms of both quality and quantity. Once you sell off your first vacant land purchase and make a good profit from it, you can go back to the bank and apply for a second or third investment. The bank will also be more confident in you, which can potentially open up lower rates for you.

You Can Create Income

Depending on the type of land and its location, you can potentially earn from your vacant land. Telecommunications companies, energy companies and the like often rent out parts of vacant land all the time to put up their equipment, which can help you earn rental money if they find your land suitable for their operations. If your land has wildlife cleared for hunting, you may be able to lease your land to hunters during hunting season.

Very Little Competition

Are you tired of getting outbid every time you find a good deal? If competing with other buyers bogs you down, you should enjoy the world of vacant land investing, because competition is virtually non-existent. That’s because few investors fail to see the superior profitability of investing in a vacant land for sale in QLD.

You Call Your Own Shots

When you buy vacant land the smart way, it’s easy to find property that you can buy with your own cash on hand. Imagine not having to deal with lenders and mortgage companies. When you know how to look for great land deals, you’ll discover that they require very little start-up capital to purchase.

Start investing in land today. Find the best deals when you partner with a trusted land for sale company like Lion Land Marketing.

Land costs are cheaper in the country than in the city, that’s a given. The further the land is from the city, the more affordable the acreage will be. Of course, if you want to stay connected to the city, you don’t want the land you intend to purchase to stray too far, for convenience’s sake. But what if land that’s not too close and not too far from the city is somehow above your budget? Here’s a little tip from your Brisbane land for sale professionals–you should wait to buy when the market is down.

Successful land developers know that it’s simply a mistake to buy real estate when the market is near or at its peak. On the contrary, they wait when the market experiences a downturn before they start scooping up properties, because they understand that inevitably, the market always rises again.

If this isn’t your first time buying acreage, perhaps you’ve seen residential land properties for sale during a market downturn that were being sold well below value. Didn’t you wish you had the cash back then? Successful developers know to prepare for such events and have enough money saved just in case. In a downmarket, you get less buyer competition, desperate sellers, and plenty of inventory, all contributing to even lower prices for you.

Baron Rothschild, an 18th century British nobleman who made a fortune buying land during the panic that followed the Battle of Waterloo, is credited for the brutally truthful statement: “Buy when there’s blood in the streets.” The belief behind this statement is that the worse the market, the better the opportunities are for a land buyer to profit. This is what’s called contrarian investing.

As the name suggests, a contrarian investor goes against the crowd. They understand that bad times make for good buys, so if they sense a downturn and “smell blood in the streets” so to speak, they prepare ahead of time by limiting their spending, establishing low-interest lines of credits, liquidating unused assets, and stockpiling on cash to make sure they are ready to make huge property investments. When the downturn eventually arrives, they’re ready to purchase land that banks and other property owners are only too eager to move.

Land is a long-term and boring investment, and you need to keep a close eye on the market at all times. On that note, it pays to partner with a reliable Brisbane land for sale firm that can monitor the market for you and help you time the best investments to make with your money.
