I am one of the lucky ones on this planet as I was born and raised in one of the most desirable cities to live in – Sydney. When I go back for business or see family, I go down to Bondi Icebergs swimming club and do laps most mornings. It is a public pool with fresh sea water and probably one of the nicest pools on this planet. Last month, I swam North to South off of Bondi beach, the water is actually clearer and more pristine than it looks in this photo.
It used to be $1.20 for a beer in the bar where I worked during my University days, and parking at the beach was where you left your car and not your credit card, you could get into a nightclub with a photocopy of someone else’s birth certificate as ID, you could even buy a bottle of wine in the state of NSW after 10pm!! and a nice holiday home up the coast only cost you $20,000 AUD. It was an amazing place to grow up – beaches, rivers, country – the best things in life were actually free. Part of the reason for that was because most people didn’t know about Sydney, there was no internet, smartphones, Instagram or budget airlines.
Well nothing lasts forever, and everything changes …so says Buddha. Fast forward to 2016 and Sydney is now in the top 3 most expensive cities in the world (depending on which report you read). Now it is $15 for a beer, $10/hour for parking, there are no nightclubs and the average price of a home is $1,000,000. That big house in a nice suburb that cost $30,000 in 1980, now costs $5,000,000. The world has woken up to what Sydney and most of Australia has to offer. Quality of life, salaries and now real estate prices are off the charts.
So how can you invest into Sydney now with $20,000 and no ability to get a mortgage? Simple.
InvestaCrowd is an online crowdfunding platform for real estate investors. You now have access, like never before, directly with the people you need to know. Through crowdfunding investing you can invest alongside reputable real estate companies with proven track records who are developing real estate in Sydney.
Unlike before, where your only options where to:
- Spend $1,000,000 (average price of a home in Sydney today) on an apartment of your own, buying off-plan, getting a large mortgage, dealing with tenants, and ongoing management, etc.
- Personally know a developer who would allow you to invest into their deals with smaller investments
- Buy publicly traded stocks/REITS , which are different
Well, luckily the game has changed, and you now have options and choices.
Some examples of the deals you can find on InvestaCrowd:
- 30% annual returns over a 2 year period: investing in an equity position in a 100 apartment development in Rosebery with a developer who is heavily sustainable focused and builds quality projects
- 14% annual interest over an 18 month period: investing in a debt position into a 52 apartment development in Bondi with a proven operator, asset backed, personal guarantees from the developer = low risk
