The Value of Exclusivity

The Value of Exclusivity
August 29
15:07 2018

study conducted in Sydney, Australia, showed that waterfront apartments in several Sydney suburbs between 1991 and 2002 experienced average capital growth of between 16 per cent-19 per centper annum.

This compared to average suburb growth of between seven per cent- nine per cent per annum.

That’s more than double.

It is well known that apartments that have exclusive or rare features will result in higher demand and increased value.

Waterfront apartments worldwide command above average prices and appreciate faster than regular suburban apartments.

Savvy investors look for tangible and intangible factors when making their real estate investments. One of the most valuable factors is whether the unit is located on the waterfront, or has waterfront views, with the former commanding more in price.

Above and beyond the waterfront location, investors also look for off the plan apartments for sale to enjoy the natural capital growth over the development and construction time of the project, typically 18-24 months from release.

Consider this, if you purchased an off the plan apartment in Sydney between 1991 and 2000, and that project took two years to complete, you would have added between 32 per cent – 38 per cent capital growth to the value of your apartment, without even owning it.

Not a bad return on your 10 per cent deposit.

Being a savvy investor isn’t luck, it’s a learned skill that comes from studying property trends worldwide and understanding what kinds of unique factors add significant value to property.

A waterfront location is one of the most important features when buying an apartment.
