Our 4-Step Process

Finding the Right Property For You

Our clients are looking to build their personal wealth in an affordable and tax-efficient manner, and residential property investment in Australia is a proven strategy to do so. We save our clients both time and money by conducting thorough research and analysis, both in-house and via external providers, to identify those properties that display the right attributes for successful investment outcomes.

Australia is a vast continent and there are diverse economic factors impacting different regions, which is why it’s important to rely on research you can trust to identify the right location to invest in. Our research identifies consistent, long-term sustainable trends in the Australian economy allowing us to guide our clients to invest in the right property in the right location. As we are not tied to any one state in Australia, we can advise across the nation.

Australian property has been a proven strategy into building considerable personal wealth and our clients recognise the value and importance of our in-depth analysis and research allowing them to make informed decisions.

Arranging & Structuring Your Finance

There are many benefits and tax incentives that come with investing in Australian residential property, and we will ensure you can take advantage of all benefits that you’re eligible for. We will provide you with the ability to access such benefits as Stamp Duty exemptions and New Home Grant Schemes. Being at the forefront of the industry ensures that we remain informed of the latest incentives as they are released, ensuring that our clients reap the benefits.

We can arrange the financing for you in Australia or offshore. We will also advise you on the most tax-effective financing structure based on your own situation and financial goals. This will ensure that you’re eligible for the major tax benefits associated with investing in Australian residential property, whether you’re an Australian citizen living abroad or have no current ties to Australia.

Arranging the Legal Processes

Two important steps when investing in Australian residential property are the Conveyancing and Settlement processes, and it’s important to ensure that you’re dealing with experienced professionals in these sectors. Conveyancing refers to the transfer of the property rights from one person to the other, i.e. from the seller to the buyer, and Settlement is the point at which the final documents are signed and payment is made.

Having worked in the industry for over 15 years, our team at Wise Guru have built long-term relationships with highly professional and experienced teams of conveyancers and settlement agents to take care of all of the legal aspects of property investment for you as our client.

Your Property Cash Flows

Mortgage rates are at record lows and there are strong rental yields, making residential property investment in Australia an attractive option when considering cash flows, whether you’re an expatriate or a local. We work with a team of experienced and professional property managers right across Australia to ensure that you have the right tenant and you are receiving the right level of rental income for your property.

We will also provide you with a full projection year-by-year of your cash flows so that you are fully aware of the cash flow implications even before you take the first step in your property investment journey. By structuring the financing correctly, and ensuring your tax benefits and allowances are in place, your next property investment could cost you far less than you think.
