We Research the Locations

Dwyer Property Investments specialise in residential investment property in South East Queensland, Australia, specialising in the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. We are not a franchise nor are we a national company. No one can know about all regions in Australia so we choose to specialise in South East Queensland, and be the best. This means that we have an in depth knowledge of the region, the new land releases and where best to invest.

We Design for the Investor

We have developed house plans specifically for the property investor to give the highest rental returns. The plans we have for our investors are suited to what local tenants want so will secure long term, good quality, happy tenants which maximises rental yield and minimises vacancy rates. We also keep in mind capital growth for resale by creating attractive facades, clever internal design features and make sure that clients do not overcapitalise on the property by having a set of inclusions and colours pre-determined.

Dwyer Property Investments will provide a rental guarantee for 3 years. This means no worrying about vacancy, arrears, no need to deal with Property Managers or tenants, everything is taken care of by us. Our property management team has an occupancy rate of 99%. We choose to offer a three year rental guarantee – and free property management - to make the process easier for you and give you total peace of mind.

Rent ready includes essentials such as landscaping, fencings, carpets and all complete with dishwashers, fans, air conditioning, TV Antennae, broadband internet connection (NBN), clothesline letterbox etc. As Dwyer Property Investments are guaranteeing the rent, we guarantee that prices include all of these extras.

Our Investment Criteria

Dwyer Property Investments has strict criteria by which all our investment properties must adhere to. We have researched and studied market trends for many years and devised a fool proof investment strategy. This basic strategy has two levels. The first Primary level checklist is a must have for all properties, the secondary checklist is more subjective and on a case by case basis and these factors are evaluated as to their impact on the properties rental yields and capital growth potential. Land developments or regions, which do not satisfy ALL of the Primary checklist elements, are not considered by Dwyer Property Investments.

3 Year Rental Guarantee

The 3 year rental guarantee gives you guaranteed rental income and ensures peace of mind with your new investment. A lease agreement is signed between the Investor and the developer.

How it Works

A contract is signed with Dwyer Corporation, the developer, which states that as an owner of a Dwyer Property Investment home that the agreed, fixed rental amount, will be paid into your nominated bank account every month. This will be paid irrespective of whether the house has a tenant in it or not. This means there is no risk to the property owner of any vacancy, arrears in payments, or any loss of rental income.

Hassle and Risk Free Investment

No need to deal with tenants or property managers. We the builders, look after the owners and the tenants, which keeps everyone happy.

The Next Steps

Now that you have an understanding about who we are, what our service is, and how we can help you get into a good solid property investment in the fastest growing region in Australia, below is a summary as to what to do next.

FAQs

How much deposit do I need?

As an overseas investor you will need at least 20% of the purchase price plus stamp duty tax, which is about 3%. So for the average $550,000 house you will need about A$130,000.

What is FIRB?

FIRB is the Foreign Investment Review Board. It is an Australian government body which has to give approval before an overseas investor is allowed to purchase property in Australia. All of our properties comply with the FIRB regulations and so we provide you with this the FIRB approval certificate for the purchase.

What is the property tenure?

Australian properties are freehold land title. This means that you own the property until you sell it or for the remainder of your life in which case it will then transfer to whomever is nominated in your will.

When do I own the property?

The property is transferred into your name the day the property settles and the final payment made. 20% deposit is paid on contract signing and the balance of 80% is paid on completion of the build or 21 days after contract signing, whichever is the later. Then the property is totally owned by you.

What if I don’t need finance?

There is no need to get finance unless it is required. Cash buyers have the same contract terms of 20% deposit paid on contract signing and the balance of 80% is paid on completion of the build or 21 days after contract signing, whichever is the later.

Who does the finance?

We work closely with a number of Mortgage Brokers who find the best loan offers on the market. They work with all the major Australian lenders and will send you loan offers for you to choose from. There are a variety of different loan products with differing fees, interest rates with variable or fixed rate options available to international investors.

If anything happens to me what then?

The property is in your own name or joint names. If something should happen to you then the ownership passes onto whoever is named in your will. This property, unless sold by you, remains yours or your families forever.

Do I have to pay tax on the rental income?

With one property it is unlikely but you need to consult a tax specialist for individual tax advice.

Do I have to pay stamp duty or value added tax when I sell the property?

The buyer on purchasing the property, not when you sell it, pays stamp duty. There is a capital gains tax payable on the profit made and the seller should seek professional tax advice.
