Tips & Ideas

OurFirstHomeProfiting from your hard work as a property investor or trader should be celebrated. The higher property values clearly don’t work in property investors favour when they purchase a rental property however a healthy profit can be achieved when they on-sell – or trade as it’s common known.

Trading a property usually involves holding the property while it’s renovated to a better standard so it on-sells for a higher price and ideally provides more profit.

The current reality TV show Our First Home is about trading. Couples buy a house to do up so they can make a profit that could then be used for a deposit on a home of their own. If it’s good enough for TV viewing – its fair to say that property trading has definitely entered the mainstream of property investment strategies.

Trading does incur a Capital Gains Tax (CGT) contrary to what we have been lead to believe in the media. CST or not – trading is a strategy that can work extremely well. It can also go horribly wrong and there will be hints of mistakes made by the participants in the Our First Home show.
