EVEN GEN Y’S WHO CAN’T AFFORD THEIR OWN HOME… ARE BUILDING INVESTMENT HOMES! Gen Y’s are often viewed as the generation of expectation – expecting everything to be handed to them on a plate. But we are seeing a real shift in this paradigm. I have been very surprised (and proud) of the number of Gen Y’s building investment homes. – even those who cannot even afford a home for themselves. It got me thinking …how can it be that so many of us ‘oldies’ know that property investment is the key to a financially secure future yet it is these young ones who are actually taking action. I believe it is because they haven’t had the exposure to the myth that property investment is exclusive to the wealthy. In fact, some of them who can not afford to buy a home to live in,


have been able to build an investment home. It is the ideal foot in the door to the property market for both those living with their parents and even those caught in the rental trap. They recognise the tax laws can make home ownership possible. And they are happy to chip in a bit extra each week over and above the rental income and tax benefits to have an investment growing in value. They have heard of the days when rent used to be $50 per week and can see how much it has increased, and they would much rather be receiving that rent than paying it! (I guess that is where the GenY factor comes in.) At Grady Homes we work with property managers,
