Your Focus Market and property

It's with great pleasure to present

Charley is lining up for a purchase in the range of $400,000 with an intention to create strong cash flow from this investment purchase in order to increase the serviceability for forthcoming properties. Whilst cash flow is a priority, equity is equally as important so that we can create extractable finance for future purchases when needed. We will be proceeding with this purchase on an 80% deposit to assist in faster extraction of the equity for this which Darren and Tim have discussed and agreed on.



Targeting locations which will grow in value by understanding what these push and pull factors are, when they will occur and how long they are due to last is what allows us to make assumptions for strong market growth.

Our methodology aligns with a number of different driving factors. Some of these include government funding, economic uplifting projects, infrastructure introduction, flanking market affects and more. However, the underlying factors comes down to a couple of basic principals, supply and demand from population movement and demographic demand.

your Hot market

Rockhampton region

Rockhampton and its property market has been largely unaffected by the pandemic and indeed has benefited from the Exodus to Affordable Lifestyle which has been enhanced by the virus lockdown phases. These attributes, plus a roll-out of numerous major construction projects, is turning Rockhampton into a magnet for southern migrants and first-home buyers. 

Property prices have been rising throughout 2020 but remain highly affordable and vacancies are tight – mostly below 0.5%.

Rockhampton’s diverse economy is being boosted by the resources sector with construction of the Adani coal mine well under way. In the last 12 months, contracts totaling $1.5 billion have been awarded to local operators. Other projects lifting the economy include the transformation of the CBD,  upgrades totaling $1 billion to major transport routes, the $2.5 billion redevelopment of the Australia-Singapore Military Training centre at Shoalwater Bay and the emergence of new industrial estates. 

Considered the ‘Beef Capital’ of Australia, Rockhampton is also the gateway to Capricorn Coast tourist attractions and a centre for manufacturing, mining and the military.

Overall, Rockhampton presents as an affordable market with good growth prospects. The Queensland Infrastructure Plan published by the State Government nominates  Rockhampton as the primary service centre for Central Queensland (with Gladstone as the industrial hub). Overall, Rockhampton presents as an affordable market with good growth prospects.
