Rent or buy? Australian Millennials Face Tough Property Choice

Millennials born into an Australia regarded as a country of home-owners, picket fences, and 20 to 40 employment tenure, have found themselves in a quandary when deciding whether to follow in their parents’ footsteps into home ownership. But TLK Partners’ wealth planning adviser Matthew Mousa, says a growing number of millennials are starting to realise they can mix the best of the old and the new by taking an “investment now, home later” approach to buying a property and getting someone else to help pay their way by renting it.

Now in their early 20s to late 30s, the millennials born in the dying decades of the 20th Century have found their lives, like the world they live in, changing at a pace that has affected where they live and how long they will live there. Caught in a 21stCentury world of bills, insecure job markets, soaring property prices and the growing need for larger mortgages and bigger deposits, increasing numbers have abandoned the previous generation’s dreams of long-service watches and lives spent in one place.

Instead, they chose to follow (and live close to) the money, no matter where it took them, and how often it did so. And they stuck to that decision even when it meant becoming permanent renters. Mousa said this led to a ‘deal with it tomorrow attitude’ to long-term wealth planning in general, and housing in particular. However, according to the NSW wealth planner, millennials are now warming to the idea that they can benefit from property investment by swapping their perma-renter status for that of a perma-vester.

Millennials compelled by their careers to stay in urban areas with soaring rents are looking into the option of buying cheaper and smaller properties than those their parents’ bought. They are choosing locations outside the city centres or in rural areas and renting them out for returns that will help pay their own rent in the city, fund their lifestyle or contribute to mortgage payments.

Mousa said that although property prices dropped by an average of 2,4 per cent (or a staggering $133 billion) in Australia towards the end of 2018, particularly in the country’s largest cities like Melbourne and Sydney, most investors still see property as a good investment option.

Prior to this dip, figures tracking the Australian housing market over the last quarter century showed that house values enjoying a 6.8% growth rate, rising by an average of 412% during the period to over $450,000 from just over $100,000 in 1993. And if it keeps going that way for the next quarter century, house values could reach an average price of $2.9 million.

And if it doesn’t, the recent drop in prices might open the door to young investors like the millennials entering this investment arena in greater numbers, before prices start to rise again.

“Investors of any age and at any stage of their lives require solid advice, and that is what we provide,” Mousa concludes.

The Latest: UK rejects Iranian position on tanker seizure

Jul 20, 2019

TEHRAN, Iran — The Latest on developments related to tensions between the U.S. and Iran (all times local): 9:20 p.m. Britain's foreign secretary says he rejects Iran's attempt to link its seizure of a British-flagged tanker to a July 4 incident in which British marines helped take control of an Iranian tanker off Gibraltar. Jeremy Hunt said Saturday afternoon that Britain's action against the Grace 1 supertanker was legal because it involved the enforcement of international sanctions against Syria since the crude oil on board was bound for that country. In contrast, he says, Iran had no legal justification for...

Iran says British tanker seized because of collision

Jul 20, 2019

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's seizure of a British-flagged oil tanker was allegedly due to a collision with an Iranian fishing boat, the country's state-run IRNA news agency said Saturday. The British tanker reportedly caused damage to the fishing boat, then didn't respond to calls from the smaller craft. The fishing boat informed Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization, which notified the Revolutionary Guard. IRNA reported that the Revolutionary Guard vessels directed the Stena Impero to an Iranian port for an investigation Friday, and that the crew remained on board the ship as per safety regulations. Iran's attempt to offer a "technical"...

Technology, temporary help keeps farmers on job longer

Jul 20, 2019

ALEXANDRIA, Ind. — Assistive technology, help from seasonal hires and family members, and a general improvement in the health of U.S. seniors in recent decades have helped farmers remain productive and stay on the job well into their 60s, 70s and beyond. In the U.S. last year, the median age for domestic farmers, ranchers and other agricultural managers was 56.4 years old. That's the highest median age of any major occupation tracked by the government's Current Population Survey for which data was available. Experts worry that without the older farmers, there might not be enough people interested in agriculture to...

TOKYO — Japan's foreign minister said Tokyo will take "necessary measures" against South Korea if interests of Japanese companies are harmed in an escalating dispute over World War II forced labor.

Foreign Minister Taro Kono said Friday after summoning South Korean Ambassador Nam Gwan-pyo that Tokyo is prepared to take "necessary measures" to protect the interest of Japanese companies, without giving details. Their talks were held in an icy...

NEW YORK — About a third of New York City's subway lines were suspended for more than an hour during a hot Friday evening commute, stranding some passengers underground and sending others searching for alternate ways home.
