Australian real estate – Why it is viable investment for foreign investors

If you live in Asia and if you happen to be Singapore or Hong Kong, you may be bounded by the regulations to invest in properties in the country you are residing in. The governments have introduced cooling measures in the bid to curb the overheating property markets in these two countries. In Singapore, property investors had to come out with more equity when they are buying their second property and they have to hold out longer than before in order to avoid paying 22 per cent in stamp duties –a move to weed out speculators in the market. These cooling measures have driven a good number of property investors to investing in Australian real estate.
