Why should you buy off the plan apartments?

This question should read “why shouldn’t you buy off the plan apartments?”. There are some significant advantages of buying an apartment.

#1 More Time to Save

When you buy off the plan, you agree to a purchase price before construction begins. This gives you extra time to save up for future repayments regardless of market changes during the building process. Think of it as a discount! Since you have already secured the property, you wouldn’t need to pay extra if it increases in value before the settlement date.

#2 Benefits and Incentives

Deposit benefits

Typically you’ll only need to pay a small deposit to the developer at the start. When the property is complete the rest will be paid. Did we mention that this deposit only needs to be around 10% (5% if you’re a first home buyer!).

Tax benefits
  • Depreciation benefits – this is where you can claim on the building, as well as the fittings and fixtures and the savings, which are often highest in the first year.
  • Negative gearing – this tax break is typically for investors, especially those on a higher salary and occurs when there is a shortfall. This is where your mortgage costs are not entirely covered by your rent and the difference needs to be made up from your own pocket.
Government Concessions

Stamp duty grants are the most common concessions offered, which can be a saving of tens of thousands of dollars.

Another important one to note if you are buying your first home is that you could also be eligible for the First Home Owner Grant (FHOG). Rules and grant amounts vary depending on the state or territory, so you can check out your eligibility here.

#3 Design Input

When you buy an already existing property, unless you plan to rebuild to your liking, what you see is what you get. So why not just buy an off the plan property? Since the purchase occurs before the beginning of construction, you potentially have more options of level, aspect or floorplan AND an opportunity to negotiate changes to the interior design.

#4 Make a capital gain before you move in

As previously mentioned, purchasing the property before or during its construction period means you are (usually) buying it when it is most affordable and so there is a lot of potential for your property to increase in value during the construction process.

The process of buying off the plan property for sale

Although this is a different process for every individual, there are some key shared experiences when buying off the plan new apartments.

These include:

  1. Paying your deposit and signing the contract
  1. Your home is under construction
  1. Pre–Settlement & Valuations
  1. Settlement

At the settlement you pay the developer, receive your keys and there you go – you’re ready to move in!
