Expert property investment advice

Building an investment property portfolio is a popular wealth strategy for many Australians. Armed with little more than a loan estimate from the bank manager and an online list of properties, would-be investors spend their valuable weekends attending auctions and open homes, trying to secure the perfect investment.

But you’re at risk of paying too much if you let your emotions take over or get tired of the search. Worse still, you might settle for second-best after repeatedly ‘missing out’.

Before purchasing any asset, you should conduct thorough research and critically evaluate your options. This is especially true if you’re considering a property investment.

The right property investment can contribute income, capital growth and tax deductions to your personal finances. However, even one or two mistakes can make an enormous difference to your long-term wealth plan.

Selecting the right investment property requires detailed financial analysis, coupled with an assessment of intrinsic value and capital growth drivers.

Buying the right investment property is all about the numbers

At Nexus, our property advisory team can help with professional property investment advice. Our knowledge of the property market, combined with our expert analysis, will help you make sound investment decisions that are right for your circumstances.

How to get the best results from property investment

Stephen Vick (Director of Nexus Private Wealth Management) explains how to get the best overall results from property investment and the most common mistakes made by investors when selecting an investment property.

Create a successful property investment strategy

We believe that building a property investment portfolio is a two-part process. Long-term portfolio success depends on getting both parts right.


Part 1: Comprehensive financial analysis

We’ll begin by assessing your personal financial situation and check how your cash flow will be affected by an investment property loan and holding costs.

We’ll also assess the likely performance of an investment property, including detailed cash flow projections based on realistic assumptions of income, growth, expenses, interest and add-backs.

We’ll also explore the best options for which entity that should acquire the asset and run a number of ‘stress test’ affordability scenarios.

This comprehensive number crunching exercise helps take the guesswork and emotion out of your property selection.

We can help arrange finance for your property purchase or even organise a self-managed superannuation fund if appropriate, providing advice on all aspects of your fund.

Part 2: Property research and acquisition

With a clear property investment strategy and established cash flow requirements, you’re ready to talk to our property research team.

We’ll help you secure the best investment property for your budget by considering two key factors:


The current market and likely growth drivers of tomorrow.

If you’re only considering the locations familiar to you, you’re likely to miss other, opportunities.

We’ll help you cast the research net much wider, in the Brisbane property market and beyond, to yield the best results.

The best possible deal on a quality property in an ideal location.

Our research team uses the facts and the data, in addition to respected market commentary, to make informed recommendations about price and prospects. We also have direct access to new properties—off the plan, under construction and recently completed—that may never be made available to the general public.

Save money with our networks and knowledge

We’re always on the lookout for quality properties in the right locations to reduce risk and maximise capital growth for our clients. We find smaller, boutique-style developments in the inner-city ring that will have strong appeal to both the rental market and owner-occupiers. We also monitor house and land packages to find the best estates for our clients.

We can help you avoid bad buying decisions, such as buying property in secondary locations, on flood-affected land, with adjoining land held for future infrastructure projects or without DA approval. At Nexus, we have access to research and data that isn’t publicly available, to take the guesswork out of your decision to buy.

What our clients say…

For many years my husband and I struggled with where to go for financial advice. We wanted somewhere that was a one stop shop and to find an adviser who would look at our whole of life needs now and for the future and be able to tailor solutions accordingly. Someone who would take the reins in some ways, to take the pressure off us, set it all up, monitor and manage it all for us. We wanted someone who would be genuinely interested in what was the best for our family and not just pretend to be ... Read More

Sonya and I have been a Nexus Client since 2012 and in that time the global economy has been subject to volatile property and share market fluctuations often ending in negative growth for most investors. The investment strategies Nexus have provided us with have improved our financial position during these challenging times whist also positioning us for future growth opportunities when they arise. A combination of having strategies in place and the ongoing coaching by the Nexus staff to better ... Read More

It has been a pleasure working with John. My first contact with him was over the phone when I was really overwhelmed with multiple decisions I needed to make to clean up my finances. He has provided clear and concise guidance to both myself and my partner reducing the stress around changing things for the future. His presentations are clear, he takes his time and really goes above and beyond what he needs to do in order to please his clients. I have since referred several of my close friends and ...

Dr Heidi & Dean

I first went to Nexus about 18 months ago at which time I had just left the army and started my own business. Nexus did something I suspect very few wealth management companies would have done. They advised me to NOT pay them and wait until I was in a better financial position. This instantly tells me they are an ethical and people centric company. They could have taken my money and put me in a position of high risk, but they chose to forgo a commission to give me the most honest response possible. ... Read More

We have been with Nexus right from the beginning. When we decided to start a SMSF we wanted to go with a company that could do it all. Nexus provided us with that. They know everything about us now and look after our SMSF, Trusts, business tax and personal tax. Every member of their staff are knowledgeable and approachable. We are so happy and fortunate to have found Nexus. They have made our life so much easier.


I’ve used Nexus for creating a SMSF, tax, legal and estate planning. Great team, great value and great advice over the last year.


We have had a great experience with Nexus. They were recommended by family and we too would recommend them to anybody. Steve and John took the time to explain everything and never used pressure tactics. They also made sure they really got to know us and our goals before making a plan.

Nexus has helped my wife and I establish a holistic financial plan, including long term financial planning, as well as the recent purchase of an investment property.
Stephen and his team have always gone to the effort to understand our personal priorities, and we trust their views and advice which is informed, balanced and focused on our best interests. We highly recommend Nexus Private Wealth Management to anyone who needs financial advice.

My wife and I have been working with Nexus for a number of years now and outside of the financial advice, we have stayed for two main reasons. Firstly, the customer service is second to none and as the Nexus business grows, they manage to employ staff with the same focus on serving the customer. Secondly, the complete service offering means that we don’t need to find different providers for our super, versus our business needs versus our personal tax.


John has been working with my partner Jarryd and I for roughly six months to one year now, we are both young professionals and were looking to buy our first house. Obviously not knowing anything about the property industry or setting up long term wealth in general we really wanted to set ourselves up for the best chance of success. After meeting with John and the team at Nexus there was no question in our minds that we were going to utilise their services. John has spent copious amounts of hours ... Read More

Sarah & Jarryd
