The big question is what are the actual returns on an investment property
going to be? It is all very well being told that the returns are above 20% but when the time comes to take in some of the profit will the investment prove to be as good as it looked in the first instance?
The normal level that an investor will be looking for is at least a few percentage points above bank rates in order to justify the risks associated with all investments that are very real. It does not matter whether it is a stock investment, real estate investment or a sure fire investment into your best friends business, they all come with risks.
The level of return on the investment
will vary from project to project and some will gain better returns than others. A serious investor will look to have a diversified and varied portfolio of property and shares - or hard and soft assets. This way the risks can be limited as while one market is doing well the other may not and that can change very quickly.
Lifestyle investors seek out projects that come with a mixture of personal usage for vacation and rental periods as well as gaining some returns while not in residence through using the property as a vacation rental
