Finding Positive Cash-Flow Property

The trick is to find and buy high yielding cash-flow positive property. But how do you do that? The following is some insight into this and at we can show you more.

Property Investment NZ is all about knowing what to look for and being in a position to act on information.

Find Positive Cashflow Properties

  • Set your goals – and know what you are looking for. Know what your return – or yield is, you need to make a property positive cash-flow.
  • Debt funded Positive Cash Flow options – if you can live with some debt and manage it well, you could consider using your equity to fund the short-fall in high growth potential properties.
  • Check the Stats – in publication such as New Zealand Property Investor Magazine. If you find the highest ‘average’ and then research properties in that general location or just outside of it, then you have a great start point.
  • Use The Net and Google Earth – The beauty of the net is its accessibility and the fact that you can access it anytime. Search using specific criteria and use instant alerts to get new listings within your search criteria sent to you via email. Google Earth gives you the ability to survey an area using satellite technology.
  • Get to know Agents in the Area – Talk to as many Real Estate Agents as you can, this will give you an overall picture of the area and help you to understand where the growth potential lies.
  • Talk to Property Managers – If you are looking for properties to be rentals, then talk to letting agents and property managers. They understand where the tenant demand is, what they’re likely to pay for specific style and location.
  • Make ‘Cheeky’ offers – If you find a property that has a higher than usual return or potential but still doesn’t fit your specific criteria – work out what price you could afford to pay to have it work for you and make an offer. It may seem like a ridiculous offer but have you got to lose?
  • Look for ‘Unusual’ properties – Consider everything, unusual properties where you can potentially get a better than average yield like old schools, churches and motels. Consider anything – some dwellings may be able to converted into two or more dwellings.
