IN THE ADF? BUYING property? 

Being a serving member of the ADF gives you some unique opportunities to invest in property and build a successful portfolio. You have a secure and growing income, which means banks are very happy to lend to you.  Time out field, at sea or on deployment can also help you quickly build up a deposit for a home or investment property. You also have entitlements such as HPAS and DHOAS to help you buy and pay off a property. 

To build a successful property portfolio, however, you need to buy quality assets in the right locations. Unfortunately, many of the postings for ADF members are not in investment-grade locations. Additionally, many in the property industry try to take advantage of your strong income and borrowing power, by spruiking overpriced new properties in poor areas and pocketing fat commissions. 

Our approach is different. We believe you have a unique opportunity while in the ADF to build sustainable wealth through property, but to do so you need to get the right advice on what properties to buy and where. That's why we've developed a proven and fully-independent process to help you acquire high-performing property assets at below market prices. Our team are all former ADF members and experienced property investors, who have learnt from both investment successes and setbacks. Start building your portfolio of quality property assets with the help of the best possible advice and services.

Buying Property in the ADF

Buying Property in the ADF

Posted to Canberra, and already a property owner in his native Sydney, Rob was looking to expand his portfolio with a quality property in South-East Queensland. Our research and buyers agency service located a substantially under-valued property only 9kms out from the CBD. Bought for $545,000, this 4 Bed 2 Bathroom home returns a yield of 5.6%, and has plenty of scope for additional value to be added.

Chris was looking to purchase his first property in the Brisbane market. With our help he bought this brand-new 3 Bed 2 Bath 2 Car Townhouse, in the prestigious inner-city suburb of Kedron, for only $566,000. We negotiated a price $11,000 below all other sales in the complex, and he was able to utilize $49,000 in government and defence grants to assist him with the purchase.

Andrew went above and beyond in making the purchase of my first property a pleasant and enjoyable experience. 12 months on after finalising settlement, I would recommend property investing to anyone, however, if you are going to make the big move, do yourself a favour and do it through Aquila Property Investment.
