Ten mistakes you can avoid

The Investors Club president offers these tips to buyers that could save them much grief, not to mention many dollars, writes CARMELLE WILKINSON THE Investors Club president Kevin Young this week shares his top 10 common mistakes made by first-time investors. Mr Young said many first-time investors never bought more than one investment property because they made simple mistakes, including: 1. Buying an investment property they would like to live in without thoroughly looking at capital growth and rental return potential. 2. Deciding to buy an investment property close to their owner-occupier home rather than looking at investment opportunities throughout WA or indeed Australia. 3. Selecting a property based on advice of friends or family rather than seeking independent information. 4. Buying an older property, which can drain their finances through maintenance costs. 5. Not undertaking a full assessment of the true cost of buying and holding

Kevin Young.

the property. For example, if the property is an apartment, there are additional costs compared to buying a standalone house, such as strata fees. 6. Selecting the wrong home loan i.e. principal and interest rather than interest only, which will help increase cash flow. 7. Buying a property in a location, which is not attractive to tenants i.e. not

close to amenities such as shops or transport. 8. Purchasing a property in an area where there is an oversupply of properties, meaning rents will be low and capital growth rates limited. 9. Trying to select the tenant themselves rather than using the services of a number of reliable property management companies. 10. Buying an investment property with the view to a quick return rather than viewing it as a long term investment and stepping stone to purchasing a portfolio of properties that will fund their retirement. For more useful tips and advice, The Investors Club is holding a workshop for first time investors – the do’s and don’ts of property investment – at its 2011 national conference in Perth from March 4 to 7. Members of the public can register for this workshop at tic.com.au. ■

Recovery in demand predicted In light of WA’s population and economic growth, outlook for new apartments is good, and rents bullish, says report A NEW report on the Perth housing market predicts a steady recovery in demand for new apartments from 2011. The Outlook for Perth Housing Construction report, undertaken by MacroPlan Australia and commissioned by specialist WA property funds management group Otan, found the trend would be driven by higher corporate profitability in WA and rising investor interest in high density housing. Otan Property Funds Management Ltd managing director Mark Butler said the report also predicted more high density housing projects would begin this year. “The study points out that better growth in rents, underpinned by WA’s well-recognised strong population and economic growth, is forecast to drive increased demand from investors for new housing in 2011 and beyond,” he said.

“The research reveals that as corporate profitability goes up in WA, so too does the demand for inner ring apartments for company owners and managers. “With corporate profits set to show strong growth again from 2011 to 2013 due to the demand for construction contractor and professional services supplied to the mining sector in regional WA, the report tips that that will underpin a recovery in demand for new apartments.” Mr Butler said the research predicted demand for high density dwellings would peak in 2012/13. “At that point, its forecast demand will reach 2100 – a level on par with 2007/08,” he said. “In 2011, it’s tipped to hit 1100, an increase of about a third on this year.” Otan is set to begin grouped housing developments in Queens Park, South Beach and the high profile Subiaco project Centro North on Salvado Rd this year. ■

RESIDENTIAL VALUATIONS

How to soften the blow of higher energy costs All gas and electrical bills are set to rocket, but there are ways to reduce the impact, a home builder says REDUCING energy costs is a high priority for property owners as the State Government announces major increases to electrical prices. In addition, gas prices are also rising, which makes energy efficiency a key issue for homeowners. According to Anthony Kinder, managing director of Wilson&Hart Home Builders, reducing energy costs was a more significant issue if you owned a larger home which had additional features such as swimming pools and ducted air-conditioning. If you already own a home, you can obtain useful information on how to reduce energy consumption from the State Government's Office of Energy website at http://www.clean.energy.wa.gov.au. Tips for reducing energy consumption include; ■ Try not to use small amounts of hot water frequently – not only do you heat the water you use but also the water left in the pipe ■ Set the water-heating thermostat to 60C on storage hot water systems and 50C on instantaneous systems (if you are unsure of how to do this, contact your manufacturer/service person) ■ Insulate the first two metres of pipes leaving the hot water storage tank ■ Turn the hot water system off when you go on extended holiday “This issue of energy efficiency is seriously considered by Wilson&Hart when designing new homes for clients,” Mr Kinder said. “The design of a home can significantly reduce overall energy costs of a home. “For example, building larger two-storey homes along the coastal strip has become very popular in recent years because of the growing focus on lifestyle in the property market.” However, Mr Kinder said a key consideration was the size of the windows if your house was facing west. “Some people install large windows in their new home only to find that the home is too hot in summer and they spend large amounts of money cooling the property,’’ he said. Wilson&Hart has assisted clients to overcome this problem by designing their home so that it has shading and that rooms have the correct window size relative to the area of the specific room. ■

Live life as though Spread your wings in this thoroughly modern home, complete with delightful quirky extras – inside and out, writes JANE EVANS CLEMENT Street is a favourite of mine. Just over 300m from the beach and even closer to the charming Allen Park Tennis Club and the Kirkwood Gourmet Deli, I can’t imagine anyone ever waking up and not feeling lucky that they live in this street. Number 105 is a thoroughly modern home, full of quirky elements to make it just a little bit different. A moat inspired water feature begins out-

side and continues inside along the western side of the home. Lime coloured accents and curved walls add a playful touch to this architect designed residence, finished to the highest standard. Entry is through a large glass and timber pivot door into a foyer that can be opened or closed off from the dining area directly ahead. A feature concrete wall forms part of the foyer.

Regal residence of distinction Within walking distance to prominent schools, yacht and tennis clubs, writes JANE EVANS ON one of Perth’s most prestigious streets, just metres from Freshwater Bay, this beautiful double storey residence is right at home. It features classic detailing, stylish finishes and stunning gardens, creating an understated elegance. Set back from the road, a limestone walkway leads you to the front door, past a sunken English style garden with perfectly trimmed hedges, immaculate lawn and lush foliage covering the property’s high walls. Victorian style french doors open out to a terrace overlooking the garden – perfectly fitting for an afternoon tea party featur-

ing the likes of a glass of ice-cold Pimms and a game of Bocce. Inside, the home is elegant and refined. The interior is neutral and low key, allowing the wonderful river backdrop and garden surrounds to be the focus. A stunning formal lounge and dining area with a Jetmaster gas fireplace occupy one-half of the entry level. Tucked around the corner is a kitchen and a casual dining area with access to a lovely east-facing alfresco area with barbeque facilities and magnificent river views. The views are even better from the second level.The master suite is bright and open with a

private balcony that has sweeping views of the river and surrounds. A generous study niche adjoins it. There are three other bedrooms over the two levels, and three granite lined bathrooms.

Quality wool carpets, good security, high ceilings, four car garaging (accessible from the street and rear lane) and ducted air conditioning are just some of the added extras of the home. ■

Gem from the colonial past Six-bedroom home evokes all the grandeur and gentility of a bygone era, writes JANE EVANS THIS six-bedroom, four bathroom colonial residence is set back on one of Perth’s finest streets, and retains a great deal of its original charm. A decorative white verandah extends around the facade, evoking visions of the original occupants enjoying a cup of tea or two on the same terrace. The rear section and second storey of the home were added some 20 years ago, and provide comforts consistent with modern living. The front of the home is largely original and while it has been immaculately main-

tained, it still possesses an undeniable feeling of old world grandeur. The stunning entry hall features original leadlight windows, round archways and timber floorboards. The dining room and formal lounge to the left of the entry have ornamental fireplaces and full length casement windows dressed luxuriously. Another remarkable feature is the timbercladded staircase – it is believed to have been acquired from a historic Fremantle pub. There are two bedrooms downstairs including the master and ensuite, and four

bedrooms upstairs, ideally situated for a guest or children’s retreat. Almost all the bedrooms overlook the pool and there are several quiet sitting rooms. As is often the case in homes of the bygone era, space is abundant throughout . A lattice gazebo in the back yard overlooks the pool and limestone alfresco area. With a little restoration, this area could be transformed into a fine entertaining area. The elegance and character of this home is unsurpassed in contemporary architecture and as such, is a true Peppermint Grove treasure. ■

Luxury that dreams are made of Lavish, palatial home continues street’s reputation for grand living, writes TANYA MACNAUGHTON WHEN you mention the South Perth street address of Mill Point Road, it immediately evokes images of luxurious homes with the ultimate view of the Swan River foreshore and city skyline. This Porteous listing is one of those properties. With a commanding panoramic vista and grand facade, the elegance of the palatial three-level mansion is unmistakeable. The ground floor comprises a triple garage with a copious amount of storage and direct internal access to the hall with bathroom, dumbwaiter base and good-sized home office that, like the rest of the house, has windows

dressed with lavish drapery. The impressive main entrance is on the first floor with black double doors opening to a foyer with a decadent style of curvaceous glass panelling that mirrors the full windows along the length of the formal lounge and dining, framing the idyllic view. The deluxe built-in bar is adjacent to the circular meals zone and has a recessed ceiling, timber flooring and outlook to the patio with cedar-lined ceiling, full barbecue facilities and access out to the sparkling saltwater pool and water feature. Timber cabinetry conceals the fridge and pantry in the kitchen that also has sleek coun-

ters and stainless steel appliances. Completing the floor is a beautifully appointed bathroom and laundry plus superior home theatre room. All four bedrooms are on the third level that is reached by climbing the sweeping, goldtoned staircase with its regal domed ceiling above. Double doors open to reveal the master suite with walk-in robe, ensuite, balcony and a view most of us can only dream of waking up to. All three minor bedrooms are double sized with either a walk-in or built-in robe and are serviced by yet another bathroom. â–

“Our day

at CeVue...

We’ve waited all our lives for this” “This morning we woke to enjoy our cuppa while we perused the daily papers (delivered to our apartment) before breakfast looking over the fabulous ocean views. After attending to “chores” like emails that invade our lives, it was a walk along the white sands to Trigg, and then back to take a refreshing dip in the surf before relaxing by the CeVue pool protected from the breezes. Tonight we will enjoy a cocktail on the balcony taking in the Indian Ocean sunset before a meal of fresh sand whiting prepared on our barbecue. Lloyd and Jan M - CeVue Owners

• 2, 3 and 5 bedroom ocean view apartments • Prestigious European appliances, stone bench tops • Prices from $950,000 Don’t wait for WA’s next boom. Timing is everything and now is the time for astute buyers to invest in CeVue.

Many changes add to beauty Late 1960s home transformed to take advantage of location, writes TANYA MACNAUGHTON BUILT during the late 1960s, this beautifully maintained three-level, elevated home has undergone many changes to make it the wonderful residence that you see today. The main alteration was the addition by the current owners of the top storey that takes full advantage of the foreshore, river and city views. This uppermost living area has a kitchenette and full-length windows across the length of the room to the huge balcony. There is also the master bedroom with french doors out to the same balcony and a smaller second balcony. This main bedroom suite has the convenience of a walk-in robe, airconditioning and ensuite with twin basin vanity unit, shower and corner bath. This self-contained level became the living quarters for the family while renovations were made to sections of the floor below, including the now modern kitchen

and living room. Black granite benches feature in the galley-style kitchen that also has stainless steel appliances, a sloped windowpane in the ceiling and french doors that lead out to the tiered back garden. There is a well-located study station close to the kitchen along with the dining zone that overlooks the lower family room with view of the driveway and to the water. All three minor bedrooms are along the same hallway and are double-sized, while the former master bedroom is now an ideal guest bedroom, which has backyard access,

and a surprising ensuite featuring a glass ceiling shaded with tree branches. There is a tiled games room with a soaring ceiling and there is also a wall of windows that allows as much natural light as possible to beam across to the upper carpeted sitting room. Front entry to the home is to this level while the ground floor consists of the double garage and massive storage space. Completing the attractions at this property is a saltwater pool with alfresco area at the front. ■

Once-in-a-generation opportunity beckons 32.9 HA BLOCK

Almost 33ha of land close to Eagle Bay offers panoramic views and an enviable lifestyle, writes SAMANTHA JONES STRATEGICALLY located, this expansive property is in Eagle Bay, one of Australia’s fastest-growing and most sought-after regions, offering a once-in-a-generation opportunity for present-day positioning and future potential. Bayview is the closest substantial land holding to the Eagle Bay settlement along the peak of the Naturaliste Ridge and the closest private property to the beach at Meelup. Absolute panoramic views are on offer from the estate, which has a view of the arc of Geographe Bay from Busselton to the Cape, and of the landscape from the Meelup Regional Park to the Cape Naturaliste lighthouse. Comprising 32.9ha of land, lot 51 Eagle Bay Road shares a 600-metre boundary with the Regional Park to the east and has a 300m frontage on Eagle Bay road to the south.

FOR SALE BY TENDER

Small rural landholdings, adjacent to the Eagle Bay town site are on offer to the north and south. The property presents a great rural landscape that offers prospective buyers an authentic Australiana ambience. There are a string of small ponds and dams that follow the course of the Eagle Bay Creek and a swathe of natural bush and scrub. The owner’s plantings include a paddock of eucalypts and other Australian species and a number of copses of native trees that break up the estate’s high pasture. The slope up from Eagle Bay Road contains the watercourse and is backed by natural bush and stunning views across the bay are enjoyed from many vantage points. It is a short walk from Eagle Bay and Meelup beaches.
