Today’s investors are seeing the benefits of buying a showhome and leasing it back to the builder at a guaranteed commercial rate for the life of the display village. These property investment opportunities have the potential to offer impressive returns.

A showhome that’s for more than just show

Building a profit with Design Builders

Whether you’re looking for an investment property, a home or both, a showhome created by Design Builders is a great opportunity. You can lease it back to Design Builders while it’s being used as a showhome, so there’s a guaranteed income. Get a good commercial return in yields, interest rate or rental. However you see it, it’s an investment that works for you.

Tomorrow’s value, yesterday’s price

They say the best time to buy an investment property is yesterday. With a Design Builders showhome, you can buy at yesterday’s prices, and settle at future values. Whether you’re seeking engineered capital or rental returns, you can be confident that your value will increase in the long run.

You could own a showhome with just a 5% deposit

Thanks to the LVR exemptions for New Builds, if you either commit to buying a showhome at an early stage of construction or within six months of completion, you can secure an investment property with a deposit of just 5%, depending on your bank.

The door to an excellent investment opportunity opens …

  • You’ll have a guaranteed tenant (Design Builders) for the lifespan of the showhome.
  • Your gardens and outdoor areas will be landscaped and maintained by the builder while the investment property operates as a display home.
  • You’ll have great tenants. Builders/developers make excellent tenants and often keep the property professionally cleaned and maintained.
  • You save on property management fees – so there is no need for a property manager.
  • You’re likely to attract quality tenants and a premium rent once it is no longer leased by the builder.
