Success Story

ADF HOUSING INVESTMENT PROPERTY: SUCCESS STORY OF A FLIGHT TEST ENGINEER

The connection we have with this client is a real shining light. 🌠 She’s super-friendly, very grateful for our support, and just happy with life in general. Her vibe and energy resonates with everyone in Axon. 😊 You’ll feel this sentiment when you read her review.

 
She refers to herself as (the other) RT…yep that’s her initials too… hahah. So, RT first came to us in August ‘21. A Flight Test Engineer in the RAAF posted to RAAF WLM, her 💵 cash holdings were not quite what she needed to buy her first investment property straight away. That situation is very common. One does not need to be ready now to get started now… similar but different.

 
As an SOP during the coaching series, we mapped out the milestones RT needed to hit, so when it was time to have her finances squared away, she was ready and able to move forward 🚶‍♀️ with confidence. Giving people clarity through military-style planning, creating a sync matrix, etc, is so bloody satisfying.

 
Through our access to land, we helped her place an EOI down in March 2022. This enabled RT to lock in 🔐 the price for the land and build and sit and wait for the build to start.

 
𝐂𝐡𝐞𝐜𝐤 𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐑𝐓’𝐬 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭 𝐢𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐲:
* Purchase price: $617K (4/2/2 house, FULL turnkey)
* Land settlement: Feb 2023
* Key handover: December 2023 (25 days of delays in the build due to bad weather)
* Same land and build value now: ~$700K (the photos will show you the quality)
* Rental income: $560pw


NB: This property is NOT located in a massive master-planned community… you’ll see on the images the estate is located in an established part of Brisbane, yet located close to a train station, shops and schools. The whole corridor is a Priority Development Area for the QLD Govt, so the buoyancy of this market will go ⬆️ on for years. I have included a graph to indicate the upward trajectory!

Receiving feedback from such a talented and switched-on ADF officer, who brings so much gratitude, is also hard to place into words. 🙏 The whole team did a fantastic job in getting this property built etc.

 
The 2x RTs (her and I) are doing our end-of-build coaching session next week… we will update her plan and do some ‘future ops’ scoping so she has clarity on what’s next. 🔥
