Note that the examples that follow contain fictitious addresses and property values. However, the market data is legitimate as at the time of assessment.

23/4 Case Study Court - an oversupplied unit market

Supply of units in West End in Brisbane exceeded demand at the time this assessment was conducted. The owner purchased a unit for around $500,000 about five years earlier and had seen virtually no growth. But was the market about to take off in late 2018, or should they cut their losses and move their money elsewhere? The analysis shown in this case study made the answer very clear.

110 Long Time Terrace - big capital gains tax bill

This property was bought a long time ago and has always been a rental property. It has acquired a large capital gain over the years. If sold, it will trigger a big capital gains tax bill. Despite this, the decision to hold was not so clear-cut as the analysis shows.

123 Little Borrow Street - limited borrowing capacity

This case study examines the impact when an investor has limited borrowing capacity. Equity may not be the bottle-neck, serviceability could be. How is this modelled and assessed by the system.
