Rental Property Investment Strategy

Know Your Rental Property Investment Strategy

Investing in rental properties is a popular way to build wealth and generate passive income. However, it can also be a complex process that requires careful planning and execution. Ynance, a leading financial services company, offers rental property investment strategies to help individuals achieve their investment goals.

Before diving into rental property investment, it’s important to understand the basic principles of the strategy. Rental properties are income-producing assets that require ongoing management and maintenance. They can provide a steady stream of rental income, but also come with expenses such as property taxes, insurance, and repairs.

One of the first steps in developing a rental property investment strategy is to identify the right market. This involves researching different areas to determine where there is demand for rental properties and where the potential for appreciation is strong. Factors to consider include population growth, job growth, and rental vacancy rates.

Once a market has been identified, the next step is to identify the right property. This involves conducting a thorough analysis of the property’s financials, including the potential rental income, operating expenses, and financing costs. It’s important to ensure that the property will generate a positive cash flow after all expenses are taken into account.

Financing is also an important consideration when investing in rental properties. There are a variety of financing options available, including traditional mortgages, hard money loans, and private financing. Each option comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and it’s important to choose the one that best fits your financial situation and investment goals.

Once the property has been acquired, it’s important to manage it effectively. This involves finding and screening tenants, collecting rent, and handling any maintenance or repair issues that arise. Ynance offers property management services to help investors manage their rental properties more effectively.

One of the key benefits of rental property investment is the potential for long-term appreciation. Real estate tends to appreciate in value over time, and rental properties are no exception. By investing in properties that are likely to appreciate in value, investors can increase their net worth over time.

Another benefit of rental property investment is the ability to generate passive income. Rental properties can provide a steady stream of rental income, which can be used to cover expenses or reinvested to grow the portfolio. This can be particularly appealing for individuals looking for a long-term investment strategy.

However, rental property investment also comes with its own set of risks. Rental properties require ongoing management and maintenance, which can be time-consuming and expensive. Additionally, there is always the risk of tenant turnover, which can lead to periods of vacancy and lost rental income.

To mitigate these risks, it’s important to develop a solid rental property investment strategy. This involves conducting thorough research, identifying the right market and property, and managing the property effectively. Ynance offers a range of investment services to help individuals develop and execute a successful rental property investment strategy.

What is a good strategy when choosing a rental property ?

Had you considered all of the following factors?

Capital Growth

  • What’s the employment situation like in the area?
  • Quality Schools?
  • Close to shops?
  • Transport, both public and access to freeways


  • Are there new highways being introduced?
  • Are there high density developments approved?
  • Does the town have history of floofing?


  • Is the property near a beach?
  • Are there parks nearby?
  • Would the property benefit from a third bedroom?
  • Is the suburb made up of renters or owner-occupiers?

Rental Yield

  • Rental yield is the rate of income return compared to the costs involved in owning an investment property.
  • High rental yields can be attractive to investors, as it means the property will generate a steady cash flow

Type Of Property

  • Apartments in capital cities usually have great rents and therefore are cashflow positive.
  • Houses in regional areas may not experience high capital growth like capital cities

Low Vacancy Rates

  • Look for a vacancy rate below 2%
  • Ideally, under 1% will give you great confidence that there is a demand for rentals in the area.
  • Optimal balance is 80% owners, 20% renters in the suburb

Amazing service!. Mitch was really professional and provided me with a number of options for refinancing my home loan. the rates comparison and information he presented was in a format that was easy to understand. Refinancing my mortgage through Ynance will now save me money and allow me to pay off my home loan quicker. It was such a smooth process! I highly recommend them.

I engaged Mitch to look at home loan options on my investment property as my 2-year fixed rate was coming to an end. Mitch explained the process with a high level of clarity and he was able to answer my questions immediately or got back to me very quickly if he didn't have the answer. Mitch took into account my position and priorities when it came to lenders, prioritizing my needs when considering lenders offerings. He managed to secure an excellent rate with one lender, the valuation of my property was assessed dramatically lower than expected, so he immediately secured a very good rate with an alternate lender with a higher valuation. Before we switched Mitch advised me to use the very good rate as leverage with my current lender who dropped their rate below the competitor to retain me as a lender. I'll keep working with Mitch in the near future and I trust him to provide me with the best options and work with my best interests at heart.

Frequently Asked Questions

An investment property strategy is a plan for how you will acquire, manage, and grow your property portfolio. It is important because it helps you to clarify your goals, assess your financial situation, and make informed decisions about your property investments.

Creating an effective investment property strategy involves assessing your financial situation, setting clear investment goals, researching potential properties and markets, and developing a plan for how you will manage your properties over time. Working with a property coach can help you to create a tailored strategy that meets your individual needs and goals.

Some common investment property strategies include buy and hold, flipping, value-add, and portfolio building. Each strategy has its own unique benefits and challenges, and it’s important to choose a strategy that aligns with your individual goals and risk tolerance.

To assess the potential of a property, you should research the local market, assess the property’s rental income and potential for capital growth, and conduct a thorough property inspection. Working with a property coach can also provide valuable insight and guidance in assessing the potential of a property.

There are several financing options available for investment properties, including traditional mortgages, private lenders, and joint ventures. Your choice of financing will depend on your financial situation, investment strategy, and risk tolerance.

Working with a property coach and/or mortage broker to ensure you choose the right finance option and the right loan structure is highly recommended.

Some common mistakes to avoid when investing in property include failing to conduct thorough research, overextending yourself financially, failing to account for ongoing maintenance and repair costs, and failing to have a clear investment strategy. Working with a property coach can help you to avoid these mistakes and make informed decisions about your property investments.
