2017 Real Estate Guide


Published on

Now in its second year, Money's 2017 Real Estate Guide offers real solutions to building wealth through property.

Our experts look at where to buy and how to make the most of tax perks, while our First Home Buyers section includes tips for saving a deposit, details of available concessions and grants including the latest housing affordability measures, plus home loan hacks, and a guide to moving in.

"Our 2017 Real Estate Guide couldn't have come at a better time, as the federal budget announced a number of initiatives to address these concerns," says Money editor Effie Zahos.

"This second edition debates some of these proposals (if you're an investor you won't be too happy about the loss of some depreciation perks) while also offering real solutions to building wealth through property. For instance, Bryce Holdaway gives you the mechanics for growing a portfolio over the long term. As he says: 'One investment is not enough to provide a passive income.'

"Terry Ryder shows us where the growth baton is being passed with his state-of-the-nation wrap-up and Margaret Lomas helps us avoid getting stuck with a property that has positive cash flow but never grows," Zahos says.

"Plus this time we've included 69 pages just for first-home buyers. Everything from where to save, where to buy and how to do it is there for your reading."
