For self funded retirees & Self Managed Super Funds worried about Negative Gearing, CGT & Refundable Franking Credit Changes – Your Assquire investing solution!

-This post explains why investors, including self funded retirees and many SMSF’s, need not worry about the refundable franking credit changes if Labour is elected, as Assquire investing’s 40-60% higher monthly yields are a stable, predictable contracted annuity stream with a buyer – including one that could be your grandchildren or children (or cousin of such).

– This post explains how an Assquire investor’s returns over 6 years could be over double those of a conventional landlord, if capital growth per annum over the next 6 years does not deliver more than average 2.5% pa.

This post explains why Assquire investors earning far higher monthly rents mostly aren’t negatively geared at all (as opposed to 60% of conventional investors gaining the usual realtively lower rents being negatively geared). It also explains why Mortgage Alternative home buyers much lower up front deposit requirements will bring more home buyers into the market to replace any negatively geared investor buyers of established homes.

Home Buyer Benefits – A Mortgage Alternative

Your security: Post number 8 on Assquire Family outlines the Mortgage Alternative home buyer’s security during the extended period before settlement with the Assquire investor, using their accumulated equity (typically between 10% and 30% depending on market price performance and whether the home buyer elects to settle earlier than the maximum ten years or not). Both buyer security interests are registered on title behind any mortgage the Assquire investor’s lender holds (if any). These security interests apply for buyers, whether their Assquire investor is a family member or not. Published March 29, 2019 – View here

Your upfront cash required to qualify: Post number 9 on Assquire Family explains for Mortgage Alternative home buyers (who purchase & lease from an Assquire investor at pre-agreed price and monthly rents) how stamp duty (if any) is included in the much lower up front cash contribution.

View here the LinkedIn post explaining the reasons why continued full negative gearing may be criticised for funding speculation by the most highly geared investors (~90% borrowings, to the extent they invest in affordable suburbs) or for funding investors to buy properties elsewhere at lower gearing (~60-90% borrowings, to the extent they invest in well heeled suburbs – in which case this does nothing to assist renters who are struggling Aussie battlers, as they can’t easily afford those suburbs.

Queensland real estate innovation doubles residential property investor net returns whilst tackling housing affordability and retirement income concerns

A new Australian real estate innovation is shaking up the investment and property industries, turning low residential net property yields for investors (and what was once a bleak retirement for many) into high yielding property investments and more choice for investors.

Developed in Australia and internationally patented, Assquire provides residential property investors with accelerated and higher residential property gross rents, on average 40% to 60% better than conventional gross rents over ten years, often doubling very low net rents. It can be used for both currently rented properties and for newly acquired properties.

Brisbane founder Keith Burchill says Assquire has been designed to combat the usual low net yields that residential property investors are accustomed to, as well as mitigate vacancy risk, property management risk and uncertain future capital growth.

“There is a long-standing myth that residential property investment is all about capital gain. That’s simply no longer the case,” said Mr Burchill. “Assquire is turning the relationship between property investment capital growth and yield on its head and proving that investors can be better off through higher contracted long-term yields.”

“With Australians simply not happy to work until they drop, Assquire is also about positioning retirees better for the future, tackling housing affordability and the deposit gap, and enabling investors and buyers to work together rather than compete against each other for properties,” said Mr Burchill.

Assquire benefits investors of any age, but the returns for semi-retired people and self-funded retirees are even greater than double in many instances. “We’re talking potential returns that are 131% higher than rental returns plus capital growth at an assumed 4.5% per annum average property price growth for the next ten years,” said Mr Burchill. (See Table 1, scenario 6 for detail and various other scenarios at different taxable incomes and settlement periods).

Assquire is aimed at investors who prefer stable and predictable high yields and long-term tenants of up to ten years, rather than relying on low yields now, a series of back to back short-term tenancies with possible rental gaps, and uncertain long-term capital growth.

To benefit from Assquire, investors can utilise an existing residential property or purchase a new property, but must have a minimum 30% equity in the property to potentially qualify. To gain the accelerated higher yields, and up to ten-year tenancies, an investor sells (with a settlement period of up to ten years) their investment property today to a pre-qualified home buyer at a pre-agreed set price. The deferred settlement produces the long term higher rental yields and the investor remains on title until settlement.

Buyers must occupy the property immediately and continue to occupy it until settlement with the investor, with the buyer’s interest secured by a registered lease and other security until settlement. In return for the long settlement and a very reasonable pre-agreed ten-year price, investors receive accelerated higher monthly rents, plus monthly deposit payments from the buyer.

For example, a Queensland investor employed on a good income and selling and leasing their $500,000 investment property could be on average $210 – $257 per week better off (in today’s dollars and after tax) during their leasing period of up to ten years, compared to their landlord position today. (Results vary depending upon the taxable income of the investor. See Table 2 for detail).

“The benefits of Assquire are substantial for both the investor and the buyer. The investor has only one tenant for up to ten years, with no more vacancy periods. In addition, the tenant has a vested interest in keeping the property in good condition, so repairs and maintenance are often reduced.

“The accelerated cash flows enable the investor to buy more, or more valuable, investment properties or to utilise the funds for more pressing needs, rather than hoping for a good enough capital gain in the future. They can also reinvest the excess returns each month in their superannuation, which is simply not possible with an unrealised capital gain. So it’s the perfect way to future-proof your investment returns against possible down turns with higher, stable, contracted rents.”

Buyers don’t lose out, just because investors are gaining.

“This is a great community initiative as it assists buyers into their own homes sooner and more safely. Assquire investors in effect incubate credit worthy buyers into their new or established homes sooner, without any of the typical mortgage worries or upfront mortgage costs like mortgage insurance,” said Mr Burchill.

“Even without long term capital appreciation, a buyer’s monthly deposit payments and a purpose designed savings plan are the foundation stones to their embedded equity to assist them to settle with a mortgage at the end of their lease, should they choose to do so.”
