LIVING BEACH SIDE
The lifestyle and feel of putting down your roots beach side is relaxing, inspiring and gives you a respite from the day-to-day city grind. There’s nothing like a stroll down the Glenelg Jetty or a brisk walk along the esplanade at Somerton.
If I want to invest in a beachside property what should I be looking for?
Along the coast you’ll always win when investing for long term capital growth. The ideal investment is a freestanding property which either has beautiful character you can retain and add further value to, or a property which offers redevelopment opportunities. From Glenelg North through to Seacliff look to buy on the west side of Brighton Road, homes here are always highly sought after.
Top 3 Tips for investing beachside:
Tip #1 Look for a property you can easily add value to without overcapitalising
Tip #2 Buy & hold – think long term investment (5-10 years)
Tip #3 Location, location, location!
