Why invest in property?

Australia needs rental properties. Our population is continuing to grow and the number of households renting is also increasing each year. The bulk of renters live in homes provided by private landlords. This creates plenty of opportunity to use property as a way of building your own wealth.

An investment you can touch

For many investors property is appealing – when you invest in a rental property you have an asset that you can see and feel.

It is very reassuring to be able to drive by or click on Google Maps and take a look at how your investment is going. Because we all understand how a rental property works, it can be easier to relate to investing in a home than in something less tangible such as shares.

Leverage

Property investment is also one of the few investment vehicles where you can use other people’s money to achieve your goals – so long as you meet the lending criteria, there are a range of banks happy to help you make a smart investment.

Where to invest

You know you want to be a property investor. But where do you want to invest?

Some people choose to buy investment properties in their own neighbourhoods because they know them well. They know which sorts of properties are popular, understand what tenants are looking for and know the things to watch out for when selecting a place to purchase. Buying an investment near your home can be helpful if you’re planning to manage the property yourself, too.

Other people look further afield, to other cities and states, particularly if they are investing in several properties.

Diversification gives potential investors a broader exposure to the market and there are often great opportunities in areas further from home or in areas you might not know so well.

Australian Construction Industry Outlook

At Homecorp, we believe it is key to not only deliver but to go beyond expectation. Our purpose is to develop the best property product, processes and outcomes. As part of our process, Homecorp consider the Australian construction industry outlook and how it impacts what we are developing and where.

Australian Construction Industry

The Australia construction market is expected to grow from USD 163.34 billion in 2023 to USD 213.31 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 5.48% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

Investment in the industry has always been a key driver of the market. Technological innovation is now also driving growth and increasing productivity.

  • The Australian construction industry generates nearly 360 billion in revenue (9% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP)) and has a projected annual growth rate of 2.4%.
  • It employs approximately one in 10 workers which is 9.6%% of the total workforce.
  • Australian Government Statistics indicate the construction industry workforce is 1,322,100.
  • The Australian government has a strong vision for developing smarter communities powered by cutting-edge technology solutions. New technologies in the construction industry are disrupting traditional models for planning, staffing, monitoring, and delivering projects as the physical world becomes increasingly digitized.

    Homecorp are already advancing digitization within the business and our strategic ownership by Prime Life Technologies, a Toyota and Panasonic company, puts us in the driver’s seat to tap into advancing technology in the construction sector.

Australian Construction Trends

Increase in Infrastructure Construction

The value of construction in the non-residential segment is continuing to grow. Investments in the non-residential sector focus on schools, hospitals, offices, warehouses, and hotels.

With government-led projects in the energy sector and transportation ramping up, the construction industry is optimistic about seeing a growth rate during the forecast period.

Improvement Strategies

Cost Management

Embracing innovative construction methods, such as prefabrication and BIM, can optimise processes and reduce costs. The adoption of sustainable materials and strategic procurement practices can also contribute to cost management.

Skills Training

Collaborative efforts between the government, educational institutions and industry bodies are key. Options include increasing apprenticeships, providing targeted training programs for mature-age workers and establishing pathways for international talent.

Regulatory Clarity

Regulatory reforms should aim to simplify and clarify regulations. Consistent enforcement will also help reduce uncertainty for businesses. Engaging with industry stakeholders and learning from successful regulatory frameworks in other countries can guide these reforms.

Despite facing challenges, the opportunities for growth abound. By investing in skills training, embracing innovation, and fostering strong relationships with stakeholders, the Australian construction industry can thrive and will play a vital role in driving economic growth and development.
