About the Investment Opportunity

Christies Beach and it’s surrounding suburbs is more and more becoming the breeding ground for some fantastic developments.

With its coastal life style yet ready access to key infrastructure such as hospitals, schools, shopping malls, and the Southern Expressway, it provides an excellent launch pad for any lifestyle.

Rental Statistics

The current rental vacancy rate (as provided by SQM Research, on 24th March 2016) is sitting at 2.5%

Whilst 2.5% is not considered to be the ideal ‘landlord’s market’, the fact that these town houses are brand new with a range of luxury additions will make them very competitive in the rental market.

The Median rental price for the region is $310 per week for a 3 bedroom house (sourced from )

However, the rental assessment certificate, provided by a third party property manager from the area, places these town houses at an estimated weekly rent of $350

The rental yield can then be calculated from the mortgage repayments + other costs from $350 per week.

For a detailed prediction of the likely rental yield, you are best suited to having a meeting with a property investment strategist.

For a quick glance at estimated rental yields, places the local rental yield at 4.8% for this property type.

With this figure, the property may come close to being neutrally geared, or very small scale negatively geared.

Property Value Statistics

The Median house price in Christies Beach is currently $349,000 (sourced from on the 24/3/16)

The Median house price in 2007 was $243,000

This sees a price rise over the last 10 years of $106,000

This constitutes approximately a 43% increase in value over the last 10 years, or on average 4.3% per year.

If this growth rate was to continue then we could expect the value to grow to $531,702

That is a 10 year growth potential of $182,702 or $18,207 per year.

Note: There is no perfect science or method to accurately predict the exact growth that a region will experience in the future.
