Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) recently released their Annual Investor Sentiment Survey with some very encouraging results.
Despite many changes and rumours throughout 2015, not only is buyer sentiment high, it remains a positive market out there for all types of investors.
One of the most interesting findings the survey highlighted is that property investors are a diverse group of people.
Investors come from all walks of life, with differing household incomes and different investment objectives.
What they do have in common is that they are experienced and have a long-term view of wealth creation through property, which really is the key here - property is and always will be a long game, and if you do it right, it will be highly successful.
And in spite of challenges this year - with increased interest rates and the threat of losing negative gearing - 63% of property investors remain positive that it’s still a good time to invest.
This is due to investors becoming increasingly more sophisticated and confident in their approach.
This improved confidence is because they are receiving the help they need to define their strategy and reach their goals.
The survey found that property professionals are becoming increasingly more important to investors with investors relying heavily on professional advice.
A significant 52% of those surveyed say they will seek advice from a property investment adviser and strongly believe in the value of professional training and education.
The proof really is in the pudding.
Sound investment principles and a defined strategy, coupled with the right professional advice, leads to success.
