Insider tips for property investment? We’re all ears

New to property investment? It’s important not to enter into it blindly, but get the help of professionals. Many questions may be running through your mind: where to invest, when to invest and what to look out for. So, we’ve chatted with real estate experts in Singapore, Australia and the UK to get their handy tips and recommendations. You’re welcome!


Infolio Property Advisors

Infolio Property Advisors are Melbourne-based buyer’s agents and property advisors specialising in home buying and property investing throughout Melbourne’s inner blue chip suburbs. Properties are purchased for investors and owner occupiers by Infolio.


When purchasing property, focus on capital growth and follow a strict purchasing model to avoid the effects of any financial instability across the property markets. Ideally, you need to be close to the city, have easy access to public transport and proximity to lifestyle amenities, cafés, villages and parks. These characteristics appeal to the masses. We also recommend avoiding large developments or areas with oversupply.

“Typically speaking, property selected using historical capital growth data will continue to grow in value when reviewed over a period of seven to 10 years. The Melbourne median increased by 7.6% in the first quarter of this year alone. Accordingly, our view is to buy and hold rather than wait to buy. In addition, not all property is good property. Regardless of being an owner occupier or an investor, quality selection and due diligence is key to a well-performing asset.” – Lauren Staley, Managing Director

“UK residential property is a secure investment which, despite market turbulence and economic fluctuations, consistently generates high returns with low volatility” – John Moran, Managing Director

“Our first tip for buying well is to secure traditional properties as they are higher yielding than new builds and hold their value better over time. Also, buy in prime locations such as city centres or big university towns as these are rental hotspots with great potential for occupancy” – Nicole Perry, Associate Director of Investment

Prosperity Wealth offers buy-to-let property investment plans. Choose from unique payment plans that will allow you to build up an initial deposit with manageable monthly instalments.


Some of the areas with higher rental yield are outside London. Birmingham is one such property hotspot, due in part to the upcoming High Speed train line. Annual house prices in Walsall in the West Midlands are also increasing steadily. Eighty miles north of London is Peterborough, which is an area of long-term sustainable economic growth. Mansfield is also becoming popular for residential property investment with its vibrant streets and amenities. Another great property investment area is Southend, which is within commuting distance to London.

Hear from the experts

“With record-breaking population growth over the last decade, demand for rental property has almost doubled. Don’t be intimidated by the property market. Most people know that property is a great investment but various factors – including high initial deposits – prevent them from taking that first step. We advise our clients to think carefully about rental yield – the amount of rent generated as a percentage of the property value.” Joe Billingham, Chairman
