Citylife International Realty is proud to offer a few properties each year to our clients under our exclusive SAFE-BUY system, which we consider to be excellent opportunities for investment.
We are careful when doing our due diligence to try to ensure that Citylife clients have access to investments which protect their downside as much as possible, with plenty of scope for upside over the medium to long term.
Some of the criteria Citylife look at when researching projects includes:
- The property must be either in an area of high population growth, or have restricted supply of land for apartments, and also be a high employment area, ideally with higher income earners.
- The property must be in walking distance to café’s, shops & transport. (we like to see a “Walk Score” of 80 or higher)
- It should be brand new, or fully renovated, to allow for maximum depreciation & therefore represent the best long term tax planning tool for clients.
- It must be high quality in terms of design, materials and construction & also should have reasonable Body Corporate fees.
- The property must be located in an area which has a sound and long term rental growth and occupancy history.
- There must be a reliable, experienced and trustworthy Developer behind the project, with a good track record and great credentials.
In addition to the above points, we then apply our own independent Citylife Investment Criteria. If it then stacks up, we will recommend it to our clients, AND offer our exclusive SAFE BUY programme, Australia's only buyer protection plan.
And we then take care of the legal, financing, tax, rental and property management.
