What is the criteria to list a property?
Your listing has to meet at least one of these criteria:
There should be an 8% minimum gross yield. The gross yield is calculated by dividing the income over a 50 week period by the value (either purchase price or current value) of the property. E.g. if someone purchased a property for $200,000 and it rented for $400 per week, the gross yield would be: $20,000/$200,000 or 10%
The property is listed with a selling price of at least 10% below registered or government valuation
There is the potential to add significant value to the property such as the ability to subdivide, renovate or to add a secondary dwelling.
Flexible vendor terms
The vendors are willing to offer minimum 20% finance terms to the purchaser, such as delayed finance or vendor finance.
