Are Australia’s Property Investors Wealthy Males?

An Insight Into Aussie Investors

There’s the misconception that many property investors only rely on their primary source of income when investing in Australia’s properties. That’s not really entirely true.

In truth, the dominant segment in Australia’s residential investment market is comprised of people who purchased their properties then transitioned to buying an investment property.

According to reports, the segment now makes up as much as 83 percent of the market.

According to ABC’s report: “Previous research shows that real estate investors tend to be married, wealthy males with high income and full-time employment.”

“A typical rental housing investor is a high-income earner or family partnership, owning one or two dwellings as an extra income source. The probability of becoming a residential investor tends to increase with age and homeowner status, but declines after the age of 65.”

Residential investors also reportedly have an average net monthly income of $8,600, or $103,200 a year. Data also revealed that these direct residential investors put their money primarily on existing properties.
