What Are Australian Defence Housing Investments?

Defence housing investment properties are investment properties sold by and leased back to Defence Housing Australia (DHA). DHA housing investment properties have several differences to regular investment properties. They are managed by DHA for a fee, and are guaranteed rent for leases of 6-12 years. Locations of defence property investments are restricted to where there are military bases though as they need to provide housing for defence members.

DHA deduct a 16.5% service fee from rent for managing and maintaining the property, which if not planned around correctly could see all your investment profits go down the drain. Ultimately, if you don't have a plan going into defence force housing investment at all, you could end up wasting any opportunities or support you get, or even losing money on your investment. Regardless of the method you use, if you're looking to maximise your investments it's critical that you understand investing strategy and make the right decisions from the start. Depending on your situation, a DHA property investment may not be the best option.

What's the Best Option for Me?

Depending on your personal and financial situation, there are a broad range of paths you can take. Regardless of which one you choose though, it's important to kick things off the right way.

If you're an ADF member, there are a number of benefits and ADF housing entitlements that you can take advantage of, including subsidies and grants and entitlements. These range from assistance on mortgage repayments to lump-sum payments you can receive for the purpose of purchasing a home.
