At our no obligation consultation, we’ll get to know one another and discuss what’s possible.
There will be no pressure, just the facts to help you see the opportunity available to you and you’ll have the chance to ask questions.
We will start the process by:
- Understanding what your hopes and dreams are so that we can best understand what you are trying to achieve with your investments.
- Establishing some personal goals and timeframes.
- Discuss how we can help you build a lucrative property portfolio in a short time frame
All we ask is to keep an open mind and a willingness to see what is possible.
Many of our prospective clients know what they want, they just do not know how to make it happen. We are here to help you step through every aspect of property investing to take any stress, fear or uncertainty away.
The most important aspect of the initial meeting is for you to get a good feeling about who we are and what we believe in, so you can decide if we are the best team to help you along your property investing journey.
If you do not currently have an Investment Plan, we can help you create a personalised plan for you.
Regardless of your investment preferences, we create tailored investment solutions that can offer:
- Capital growth
- Solid rental returns
- Live-In Investment
Our philosophy on property investing is all about mitigating risk to maximise returns. As designers, town planners and builders we have extensive experience that you can lean on to create and maximise returns.
Choosing the right location and community
If you choose to work with Urban Revolutions and our network of professionals, we will challenge you to think big and to see your property portfolio as a business.
We will help you to invest like the professionals do.
Smart property investing has a number of key factors to consider. It’s important to know that you can purchase a property anywhere in Australia, however our philosophy towards successful property investing for long term financial security leads us to areas that can demonstrate long term key market indicators.
These include but are not limited to:
- Areas that have a high demand for affordable rental stock
- New master planned land releases with expanding retail outlets nearby
- Areas with strong prospects for a variety of local jobs
- Close proximity to growing town centres
- Access to large recreational facilities
- Access to good public transport
- Locality to quality education options
- Existing or planned major infrastructure works
- Safe and secure communities
An investment property needs to be located where there’s high demand for rental properties. This demand pushes up rents and the higher return the greater the value of the home.
After we have located and identified the specific risk factors for a property, we can then start to make assumptions, based upon our experience on the likely financial outcomes for a project.
We will present you with the indicative investment returns and benchmark against your investment strategy.
Understanding what local factors are driving a particular location will determine whether your investment is a success. Typical considerations include proximity to:
- Demand vs supply
- Product suitability
- Price point
- Essential services
- Employment hubs
- Quality education
- Large infrastructure projects
- Shopping centres
- Health services
- Cultural hubs
We also explore less obvious development factors such as:
- Government grants
- Taxation incentives
- Local and state planning incentives
- Financing opportunities & constraints
Land acquisition is a key component for successful property investment. We need to ensure that you are not paying too much for the land. We can assist you in negotiating on price, settlement terms and even discuss the broader picture of timing in the marketplace.
Our Tip: Acquiring the site in your name will save you from paying stamp duty on the property twice.
We are specialists at creating residual value in a property through creative design and understanding local and state planning and development controls.
We call this manufacturing a return through creating the highest and best use for a site.
We will look after all approvals as part of our holistic development approval services.
Every project requires some form of development approval. There are planning options depending on the type and scale of the proposed development.
We will determine which approval pathway offers the most time and cost-efficient means for approval.
Our network of mortgage brokers have arranged hundreds of millions of dollars in loans and they know that the smartest approach is looking at all aspects of a mortgage to get you the best deal, not just the current interest rate.
With a real understanding of your specific goals, our team can recommend the most appropriate loans and lenders that will maximise flexibility, minimise your risk and make sure you secure the best loan facility, tailored to your needs over the long term.
Financial Planning, Taxation & Legal Advice
After providing you with a detailed property analysis, including full calculations of investment opportunities, you may wish to seek independent financial and legal advice for your peace of mind.
Even after you own your first investment property, our specialists can offer to you, ongoing taxation and legal advice and ensure that you’re investing in the most effective way to super charge your retirement nest egg.
If you have selected one of our pre-designed models, we can prepare a tender proposal for you very quickly. Custom designed investments take a little longer.
We will provide you with a detailed tender proposal, methodically detailed and set-out. This document will form the specification for your project and will become the basis for how your project will be delivered.
Once the tender document is agreeable by all stakeholders, we will prepare a formal engagement document for signing, which will form our commitment to each other to deliver the project.
Our team has a strong track record of delivering high quality projects in compressed timeframes. This is to a large extent due to the level of work that goes into the project before we commence onsite.
Whilst this work is completed in the background, the successful delivery of a project can be directly attributed to the time spent during the pre-construction phase.
Our approach towards pre-construction planning will include:
- Project programming
- Risk analysis
- Project design review
- Detailed cost plan review
- Construction methodology & buildability
- Tendered trade packages
- Site set up
We focus on helping you build a portfolio of new home projects rather than buying existing properties. We will discuss the benefits of this approach during our first meeting together.
For now, I can assure you that:
- We are ethical and award-winning builders
- An independent registered certifier will sign off the design prior to construction
- An independent licensed building inspector signs off each construction stage
- You will be protected with extended warranties and fixed price contracts
- Weekly progress updates and monthly reports ensures that you’re always fully informed
- Your investment has guaranteed construction times
- Our end-to-end project management service means no surprises, no hidden costs and no stress. We guarantee it.
We will commission and test all components and submit detailed ‘maintenance & care’ packages and ‘as built’ documentation to the satisfaction of relevant authorities for obtaining occupation certification. This process will ensure that your tenants will have a seamless experience when they rent your investment.
Our project team will take complete ownership until the project is handed over defect free.
Throughout the project, we will commission a certifier (council or private) to undertake milestone inspections.
Upon completion of the construction we will obtain all relevant construction certifications and submit to the certifier for issuance of an Occupation certificate.
The receipt of this certification triggers your ability for the project to be tenanted and income to start to flow.
Finalisation of all administrative matters and financial aspects of the various agreements are signed off, approved and paid.
We will manage the final completion on the client’s behalf and manage the use of the project in relation to any teething problems that arise and we ensure their prompt attention and settlement.
Maintenance & Defect Period
The last 5% of the project is what clients remember. It is the difference between a good project and a great one. We possess a last 5% delivery mentality.
Our project team will take complete ownership until the project is handed over defect free.
7 Year Structural Warranty
When we take on a project, we accept the responsibility that comes with this important decision.
We are proud of the fact of our track record, having never had a project requiring a structural rectification. This is not a coincidence, it is because we take a ‘Quality First’ approach, rather than accepting the minimum standard. Whilst this may cost a little bit more at the outset, you are paying for peace of mind and in turn have savings on your investment over the long run.
Sales or Property Management
We have discussed the importance of treating your investments as a business. This carries forward to the management of the properties once rented.
Our experienced property management partners will handle everything.
- Source, screen, recommend suitable tenants and manage all contractual obligations
- Manage the collection of rents and utility payments
- Conduct regular site inspections
- Manage all statutory paperwork for you, ready for annual tax returns
- Manage property maintenance as it is required
