Achieve your property and investment dreams

Owning property is one of the great Australian dreams. However, in recent decades this dream has become harder and harder for working Australians to achieve. The team at Elliot Watson Financial Planning can help you consider all your options when purchasing a home or investment property.

When considering property for wealth creation there are several factors which you need to consider including:

Your long-term goals – what is your priority: income generation, capital growth, tax benefits?
Taxation – rental deductions, negative gearing and capital gains all need to be considered for return on investment.
Location – unlike other investments, physical location is key to capital growth and irrespective of your purpose of investment (forever home or investment) emotion should be taken out of the equation.
Alternatives – could your money gain a higher return invested somewhere else? What is the opportunity cost of investing in property?

Client Situation

Jason and Chloe were a determined young couple. They had big dreams to buy a block of land and build a new home, pay for an extravagant wedding and honeymoon, plus plan for a family. The combination of big dreams and existing debt meant that for Jason and Chloe the reality of achieving their goals was not realistic, but they were determined to get their new home. That’s when they decided to consult Elliot Watson Financial Planning.


On the advice and guidance of our specialist adviser, Jason and Chloe implemented a recommended savings plan and obtained additional funds from a new source suggested by our adviser. The larger deposit amount enabled Jason and Chloe to increase their purchasing power to buy their new home. Not only were they able to spend more on their home, they also reduced their mortgage by $150,000.

Nearly a year on Jason and Chloe are enjoying their home, are about to tie the knot and are saving $5,000 per month.
