ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story of a Double-Army Couple

Rae and Alyta came to us in April 2022. A double-Army couple πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ€β€πŸ‘©πŸ½ living in Brisbane, we explored 2 x COAs: Build their first investment property (outside of their posting radius); or pull the trigger on their ADF and Govt housing entitlements and build their own home (PPOR).

After some analysis from the mortgage broker and more planning with Axon, it was decided that we would discard IP#1 and enact the COA that provides stability and surety (building their PPOR).

ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story of a Raffie

Growing a family and a property portfolio is very difficult at the best of times. Watch now for a complete demonstration, by numbers, of how to get it right!!!

P&S came to us with some clearly defined goals around creating intergenerational wealth for their family but were very unsure of how to start working towards achieving them. Initially, on P’s single RAAF income, we knew that this was going to be a difficult task to get their foot in the market in the near term. After the initial Coaching session, S made the decision to turn part-time employment into full-time employment to solidify their ability to start generating wealth. A power move indeed!

ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story of an Army Construction Engineer

This is a success story that informs us that it’s never too late to ensure our retirement is what we deserve…

Rob and Cassie came to us in June 2022. Living in Sydney, Rob is a 20-year Construction Engineer in the Army, and Cassie works in professional services. In their early-mid 50s, one of their concerns was whether it was too late for them to improve their situation as they start to consider retirement on the GC.​

ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story #93

This highly accomplished couple came to us as first-time investors with great money habits yet no refined goals in mind. They knew they wanted financial security but were unsure of the path to take, and that’s where we employed step one of the process. Establishing a list of detailed goals around all areas of their lives, we were now ready to commence the coaching series to gain clarity over our options.

B and J, through their own admission, had very little free time to apply to make this acquisition a success and, as such, employed Axon to guide and support them through the process. B and J said they wanted Axon to β€œπ‘‡π‘Žπ‘˜π‘’ π‘‘β„Žπ‘’ π‘ π‘‘π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘ π‘  π‘œπ‘’π‘‘ π‘œπ‘“ π‘π‘’π‘Ÿπ‘β„Žπ‘Žπ‘ π‘–π‘›π‘” π‘Ž π‘π‘Ÿπ‘œπ‘π‘’π‘Ÿπ‘‘π‘¦ π‘Žπ‘›π‘‘ β„Žπ‘’π‘™π‘ 𝑒𝑠 π‘‘π‘œ π‘›π‘Žπ‘£π‘–π‘”π‘Žπ‘‘π‘’ π‘Žπ‘™π‘™ π‘‘β„Žπ‘’ π‘‘π‘–π‘“π‘“π‘’π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘›π‘‘ π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘žπ‘’π‘–π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘šπ‘’π‘›π‘‘π‘  π‘Žπ‘›π‘‘ π‘œπ‘π‘‘π‘–π‘œπ‘›π‘ . π‘Šπ‘’ π‘™π‘–π‘˜π‘’ π‘‘β„Žπ‘Žπ‘‘ π‘‘β„Žπ‘’ π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘ π‘’π‘Žπ‘Ÿπ‘β„Ž π‘œπ‘› 𝑓𝑖𝑛𝑑𝑖𝑛𝑔 π‘‘β„Žπ‘’ π‘Ÿπ‘–π‘”β„Žπ‘‘ π‘π‘Ÿπ‘œπ‘π‘’π‘Ÿπ‘‘π‘¦ 𝑖𝑠 π‘‘π‘œπ‘›π‘’, π‘Žπ‘›π‘‘ 𝑀𝑒 π‘π‘Žπ‘› π‘‘π‘Žπ‘˜π‘’ π‘Ž 𝑙𝑖𝑑𝑑𝑙𝑒 π‘šπ‘œπ‘Ÿπ‘’ π‘œπ‘“ π‘Ž β„Žπ‘Žπ‘›π‘‘π‘ -π‘œπ‘“π‘“ π‘Žπ‘π‘π‘Ÿπ‘œπ‘Žπ‘β„Ž π‘€π‘–π‘‘β„Ž 𝐴π‘₯π‘œπ‘› π‘šπ‘Žπ‘›π‘Žπ‘”π‘–π‘›π‘” π‘Ž π‘™π‘œπ‘‘ π‘œπ‘“ π‘‘β„Žπ‘’ π‘π‘Ÿπ‘œπ‘π‘’π‘ π‘ π‘’π‘ .”

ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story #92

This is a success story that emulates the changing circumstances of life many of us go through…

BLUF: Katie has recently refinanced this amazing investment property to her name, even though she and her previous partner, Ben, built πŸ—οΈ the house as a couple.

After being referred to us by Laura (last week’s success story!), Katie and Ben came to Axon in April 2021. They were both Navy members, living in Sydney and in their early 20’s.

ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story #91

Ben is a Veteran (ex-Army Engineer, working ✈️ FIFO in the WA mining sector), and Laura is a 🚒 Navy Officer. Living in Sydney with their 2 kids, they actually came to Axon way back in May 2020.

After being coached IAW the Axon model, Ben and Laura built their first property with us in 2021. That property is located in a master-planned community in SEQLD and has risen in value > $250K, with plenty more growth to come! πŸ™Œ It was named IP#2, as they came to us with an investment property in Darwin that they had bought in 2015

ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story #90

This is one hell of a bitter-sweet success story… keep reading this one. I’ll take you on a journey!
Justin has served 16 years in the Army. Cat, a veteran herself, is a superstar mum and she is a weapon medical receptionist. Justin pulled the trigger on his ADF housing entitlements back in 2013 when he was posted to Enoggera. That property, in a blue-chip area of North Brisbane, performed very well for them.

ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story #89

This is a success story like no other… these superstar clients are at the top of the Axon pile regarding the number of properties acquired using our services. πŸŽ‰ You have read about their evolving portfolio over the years, and here we are showing you IP#4. Number 4!

Approx. 12 months ago, I completed the success story for IP#3 with this: β€œLooking ahead, Aaron and Meggan have commenced the build for IP#4. Aaron is on a ship for the next 5 months, so Meggan will do this build with Axon solo. They have already secured an EOI for IP#5. Once these houses are sitting in the market, they’ll likely start a family.”

ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story #88

Chris and Erin first came to us back in Oct 2021. One of Axon’s previous team members (Adam) sent them our way, which we are very grateful for. πŸ₯² As you know, the Defence community is very small and everyone knows someone…

Both serving in the Army, they were living in Sydney. Chris was providing expert signal capabilities at Holsworthy, and Erin was a weapon Clerk (on MAT Leave at the time). They had IP#1 already, a unit in Liverpool, which was Erin’s own home from 2017. Chris had already commenced scoping πŸ”­ for jobs to support his likely separation from the ADF. He said something like, I can’t go back to normal Army after serving down here for the last few years. Yep, that sentiment certainly resonated with me!

ADF Housing: Investment Property Success Story #87

We first met Luke and Anika in back Sept 2021. I’ll jump straight to now and let you know a LOT has happened since our first meeting – let me take you on their journey…

Situation: They’re living in Brisbane, Luke was in the Army, with 15 years under his belt. He was attempting to transfer to the RAAF. Anika is a Registered Nurse, specialising in Midwifery. They’re married with no kids, yet β€˜family planning’ is underway.
