Frequently Asked Questions

How long have you been doing this?

Investn was founded in 2015 but most of our team members have been involved in property for much longer. Our CEO, Scott Fraser, for example, began investing almost 20 years ago.

Do I get to choose the property I invest in?

Yes, we’ll do all the research for you and present you with what we believe are the best options from dozens of opportunities that we review and that meets our investment selection checklist. You then choose the property that you’re most interested in from our shortlist.

Where do you look for properties?

We target growth locations, wherever they may be across Australia. Specifically, we look for places with great local infrastructure (easy access to public transport, schools, etc.) and booming populations, just to name a few points in our selection criteria.

Do you invest in existing properties?

Yes, we’ll consider existing properties. However, we focus on high cashflow property, for your first couple of investments.

Who will own the property?

You will be the legal owner of the property and your name will appear on the title documents. While The Investn Group retains a 10% share in the property, this will be registered as an interest, much like a mortgage.

Can you help me find a mortgage?

Yes, we have several external partners who can help you secure the financing you require for your investment property.

Who will be responsible for the mortgage?

The mortgage will be drawn up in your name and you will be responsible for making the regular repayments.

Who decides how much to rent the property for?

As part of our research, we’ll provide you with a suggested rent range for the property and your Property Manager will also be able to advise you on a suitable market rental rate.

How will rent be paid?

Your Property Manager will be responsible for coordinating the renting of the property. This includes collecting payments and making sure your tenants are up to date with their rent. They will also manage the disbursement of rental income, which will be paid directly into your nominated bank account.

Who pays the bills for the property?

Your Property Manager will look after the ongoing administration of your property for you, including paying most of the bills (council rates, water rates, insurance etc). These will be deducted from the rental income the property produces.

Can I sell the property?

Yes, as the legal owner of the property, you can sell it. However, we recommend taking a long-term view of holding onto the property for at least 3 years due to the costs incurred when buying and selling property.

Can I live in the property?

Unfortunately if you are looking for a home to live in, we unable to assist you, as we only work with investors at this stage.

Does Investn have an Australian Credit License (ACL)?

No, we are unable to lend you money or provide you with credit advice.

Does Investn have an Australian Credit License(ASFL)?

No, we are not licensed to provide financial advice or sell financial products. As such, it’s important you do your own research and consider whether our model will work for you.

Does Investn have a real estate license?

Yes, we have licensed real estate agents on our team. They play a key role in researching properties, reviewing sales contracts, and helping us negotiate the best deal for you.

Can I get the First Home Owner Grant (FHOG)?

The FHOG is not available when investing in property. If you do buy a home to live in in the future, we suggest you contact your State Revenue Office for more information on the Grant, and to confirm your eligibility.
