Approved properties are listed on www.empowerhousing.com.au and www.domacom.com.au websites for crowdfunding. When a property has been 100% funded by investors, the property is transferred onto the HouseCrowd share/unit trading platform. Investors can then buy, sell and bid on shares/units.
We're looking for these types of properties
located in QLD, NSW, VIC & WA
Preferred apartments are those that are part of a letting pool with a minimum occupancy rate of 75% and under on-site management. These may include fixed long-term income with all expenses paid by the managers.
Investors seek fixed lease-back terms together with all or most expenses paid by the builder/developer during lease-back period. Preferred houses are those that are located in high-growth areas.
Duplexes & Dual Occ's
Investors will benefit from the higher-rental incomes that dual occupancy properties generate year-on-year. Preferred duals are those that have not been sub-divided and that are located in growth areas.
Townhouses & Villas
Configurations of 1br, 2br, 3br and 4br single and 2-storey dwellings are acceptable. These properties are expected to be lower priced yet produce above-market returns and ideally located in growth areas.
Investors look for properties that are located in high-growth locations with above-market returns.
Our licensed real estate principals grade the property before it can be included on the Platform. Property grading must be a minimum of 9%. It’s a combination of property growth rate and gross rental return i.e. 5-year annual growth rate 3.5% + gross rental return rate 5.5% = 9%. A desktop valuation will be undertaken by us to determine a realistic valuation of the property. Soon after the property has been deemed suitable for crowdfunding, you’ll be emailed a completed ‘Appointment to Act’ for a minimum 6-month exclusive-listing-term.
Gross rental returns
Regular rental income and suburb vacancy rate is assessed and verified.
Suburb growth rates
Property location and suburb is assessed to determine potential increase in property value over time.
Realistic market valuations
Similar properties on-the-market for sale together with recently sold sales evidence is used to obtain a realistic value.
