Buying Properties With Subdivision Potential


  1. Subdivision is the act of dividing land into pieces that are easier to sell or otherwise develop.


Purchasing a property with subdivision potential can help unlock instant equity or create dual income potential.

The dual occupancy is simply a property with two sources of income with multiple dwellings on the one property. Returns for both the short and long term are superior and this assists tax payers with the recurring question of “how can I make my property positively geared? (Positive gearing: positive gearing occurs when the income an investment property is generating exceeds the cost of owning and maintaining it. Investments are supposed to make money.)
