We were pleased to share some of our data findings with Veronica and Chris on the show. Here's that data and more for your information below;

From our analysis of 1,000 of our residential reports:

Type of residential investment
1              43.1% of investors buy/build a house
2              8.5% townhouse or duplex
3              47.3% a unit
4              38.2% of all investors buy brand new

1              68 is the ave. number of units in the development for investors that purchase a unit
2              Ave purchase price is $539,570
3              43% are bought new (204/473) compared to 26.2% for new houses (drops to 7.3% if we exclude properties where the client engages the builder directly)

Depreciation Deductions
1              Ave first year deductions $9,415
2              over first 5 years it's $38,388
3              ave total deductions over 40 years $192,159

Let's get real
With Ave deductions of $9,415 here's what you'd get back in your pocket (source: ATO Calculator)
On an income of 200k you'll get $4,237 back in your pocket
150k is $3,484 in your pocket
100k is the same
50k is $3,060 in your pocket
