Foreign Investment in Australian Real Estate

The Australian government has always been very eager to encourage and entice foreign investments into the Australian Real Estate Market in order to guarantee Australia’s future growth and prosperity. However to protect the best interests for Australia and Australian citizens, the Australian government has also implemented many different changes to foreign investment laws and policies (regarding the purchase of new property) over recent years.


That is why it is always best to use the services of a local Real Estate Professional when seeking to purchase property anywhere in Australia. And in particular you should always try to use the services of a professional Exclusive Property Buyers Agent.  Why? Because a professional Buyers Agent is very familiar, knowledgeable and most importantly, experienced with the laws/policies regarding the purchase of Australian Real Estate.

Why You Should Always Use an Australian Property Buyers Agent as a Foreign Investor Investing in Australian Real Estate


As we have just stated above, before you are allowed to purchase an Australian property, land for sale or Australian Commercial Real Estate as a foreigner (or overseas investor) you are going to have to obtain an approval from the Government of Australia. This approval process should never deter you from investing in the always thriving Australian Real Estate Market because a specialist Property Buyers Agency such as East Coast Buyers Agents will basically handle everything for you.


If you are (or represent) an overseas business/company/firm/global organization or personal Property Investor, an experienced Australian Buyers Agency such as ECBA will be an extremely valuable and important asset to have on your team. This is primarily because of an Australian Buyers Agent’s extensive knowledge about the Australian Real Estate Market, but also because you ultimately end up with a very large group of local Australian Real Estate professionals all working for you to find the best possible properties available on the Australian Real Estate Market. A professional Property/Real Estate Buyers Agent typically works with a very large network of other Real Estate professionals and associates in order to achieve their own goals – which is finding the ideal property for you.


It’s also worthy to note that experienced Property Buyers Agents are genuinely very passionate about Australian property/Real Estate and will generally do much more than is expected from them in order to produce great results for their clients.
