Jordan Springs Case StudiesI have had five clients purchase investment properties in Jordan Springs over the last year and they have all had strong results. Here are their success stories, I have kept their names confidential for their benefit, however please feel free to contact me if you would like me to outline any further details.

Jordan Springs Case Study 1

These clients live in the lower Blue Mountains and purchased a 4 bedroom investment property in Jordan Springs in April 2011. The house and land package they purchased was $435,000. The house was then constructed, completed and now tenants are living there. The property is now worth between $495,000 and $510,000 and is being rented for $495 per week. So let’s assume they could sell the house for the lower amount of $495,000…

– Capital Gain $60,000

– Capital Growth 13.7%

– Rental Return 5.92%

This couple have a loan of $435,000. Their interest rate is 6%, so their weekly repayment is $501. Given that their rent is $495 you can see that they are only behind by $6 prior to getting the tax deductions. They estimate that their combined tax back for the property will be $7,500 in the first year. So this investment is cash-flow positive from day one! In other words, they will make extra income from the rent and tax deductions on this property from day one. Also, they have already made a capital gain of $60,000.


Jordan Springs Case Study 2

These guys are a young married couple who live in Sydney’s Northern Suburbs. They purchased a very similar property to the couple from Case Study 1, it has 4 bedrooms and the house and land package cost $439,000. Once the construction was completed they have rented the property out for $510 per week. They wanted to get top rental dollar rent and so were happy to wait a little longer to get higher rent. The property is now worth between $500,000 and $515,000…

– Capital Gain $61,000

– Capital Growth 13.8%

– Rental Return 6.04%

These guys have a loan for $389,000 because they had saved a deposit to put on the investment. They are paying 6% interest which means their weekly interest payment is $506, so they are $4 per week ahead of their repayment at the moment. They also need to pay for their rates, insurances and the like, however they expect to get a tax return back of approximately $10,000. They are well and truly cash-flow positive on this property not to mention the $61,000 capital gain they have already made. In fact, they have been in contact with me to start the ball rolling on their second investment property.


Jordan Springs Case Study 3

These clients live in the Katoomba area and purchased a house and land package very similare to the couples in Case Study 1 & 2. It cost $435,000 for a 4 bedroom home in Jordan Springs. They purchased it in March 2011. They wanted to get a tenant in very quickly so accepted a weekly rental of $470. This property is also worth between $495,000 and $510,000.

– Capital Gain $60,000

– Capital Growth 13.7%

– Rental Return 5.62%

Both are paying tax and expect a return of about $9,000. So given they expect to be cash-flow positive in the first year of owning this property.


Jordan Springs Case Study 4

Another married couple from Sydney purchased a very similar property to the first three case studies. It was also a 4 bedroom house and land package and cost $435,000. They kicked off the purchase process in March 2011. They managed to get top dollar for their rent at $520 per week and have also been told that they would sell their property for about $495,000 – $510,000.

– Capital Gain $60,000

– Capital Growth 13.7%

– Rental Return 6.22%

They are very much in a cash flow positive scenario here where the rent and tax deduction more than pay for the costs of owning the property.


Jordan Springs Case Study 5

The final couple are in a slightly different property to the others. It is a 5 bedroom two storey house which cost $485,000. It is estimated that it is now worth $555,000 now and they receive $540 per week rent.

– Capital Gain $70,000

– Capital Growth 13.7%

– Rental Return 5.79%

The repayments on $485,000 would be $559 per week, so they are behind by $19 per week, once the other expenses are added in and the tax deduction taken out they still expect to be cash-flow positive. They have made $70,000 in growth already plus some extra money in the bank in the short-term perhaps to start saving for another investment property.
