The Power of Property – An Investment Property Case Study

 In Macquarie Knight News

What makes Macquarie Knight different?

Macquarie Knight specialises in providing our clients with complete house & land packages, perfect for investment properties. Coming from a strong heritage of constructing dual occupancies, where each project is – by their very nature – a customised development, we understand that every client’s needs are uniquely different, and each site’s requirements vary greatly.

Being very familiar with, and having the skill set to manage customisation, Macquarie Knight provide customised housing design to all our clients. After seeking a brief from the client, we set about creating a solution that is tailored to their needs – be it owner occupier or investor. Although specialising in this customised form of construction, Macquarie Knight Constructions has also developed a range of beautiful designs that can be built as is, or altered to suit your needs and requirements. We have created a series of unique designs to suit most lifestyles and investment needs, and we will assist you at every stage in achieving your desired outcome. Our designs include 3, 4 and 5 bedroom alternatives, and these plans can suit multiple width blocks. All designs include our normal high standard of finishes and inclusions, while there is also the option of upgrading to the “Platinum Package” to provide a turn-key option (this is where we can provide everything from landscaping and driveways, to air conditioning, letter boxes and blinds – move in and “turn-the-key”). We are also happy to assist clients to source their own land, or construct on
their already purchased land.

Investing in property is a popular way to build your wealth over time through additional income and if done correctly, can bring huge savings at tax time. If you’ve been thinking about investing in property but still aren’t sure if the pro’s outweigh the con’s then have a look at this case study example below of a recent investment property build that Macquarie Knight completed for one of our clients.

Investment Dwelling Case Study

Our client came to us wanting to build a long-term investment dwelling that they could reap the benefits on for years to come. We designed a contemporary and functional 4 bed, 2 bath home with an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area and lock up garage. The master bedroom is serviced by its own en-suite and all bedrooms have their own built in robes. The practical and low maintenance design of the home makes it a perfect property to rent out and manage easily. Have a look at the figures below to see the potential return on investment for this customer and how easily you can  do the same:
