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.

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…

I had no experience in working with a financial advisor or wealth management group. I also did not have the time or interest to research information myself. It has been a pleasure to work with John and Steve, as they have guided me through my journey of starting an investment plan for my future. I would highly recommend Nexus for anyone who would like to grow their wealth and learn about the process while doing so.

After many hours of searching for financial advice within the Brisbane city, I was left with very little to choose from at a professional level. I came across the Nexus page and started researching. I liked what I saw and found it very user-friendly. Nexus offered us first class service with no hidden costs and was hassle free from the beginning. We have every confidence in the team at Nexus to help us create wealth and guide us to a healthy investment portfolio. With no hesitation whatsoever, the team at Nexus is highly recommended.

We just wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank you and your team for your great work sorting out our financial situation, and in particular the ease of management and peace of mind you have given us. The level of service and attention to detail has been excellent. We now have direction and a clear vision of our finances, confident they are structured in the best possible way.
