8 Point Property Selection Criteria
8 Point Property Selection Criteria refers to the system Investate utilises when researching a property suitable for investment. The system was developed to ensure that any properties recommended by Investate to our clients performed as we expected. For this reason many of our clients have experienced significant capital growth in the first 12 months of ownership.
Our ultimate aim is to offer guidance, support and assistance to clients seeking an investment in residential property and, through structured research based analysis, to help improve the results achieved from an investment in residential property.

It is not only important to understand the reasons why Investate has selected these 8 Point Property Selection Criteria, but it is also important to notice the order in which these 8 criteria have been placed.
Priority has been given to the economics of the AREA first and then to the specific PROPERTY criteria second.
