Kris is a single, high income earning professional with a secure job. He wanted to invest in property to grow his wealth but was extremely nervous about making the right choice given his limited knowledge of the market. He was keen on a positive cash flow property and was grateful for the assistance we provided. Kris trusted the data we presented and we were able to find him a dual key property in an area, which was not accessible to many.

  • Year: 2020
  • Region: South Brisbane
  • Type of Property: Dual Key property – 2 bed, 1 bath, 1 garage and 4 bed, 2 bath, 1 garage
  • Purchase Price: $538k

Why We Recommended this Property

Taking into account his plans and desire to earn positive cash flow from the start, we found Kris a dual key property well located in an upcoming area. The data showed the potential for the area, while the dual-key option gave him the chance to earn two rental incomes from just one property.


The property started to make money from day 1, which is exactly what Kris was looking for. Since he invested, he has earned a 7% rental yield. The property has already grown in value, which is another reason why Kris is so pleased with this investment. Smart Choice Property provided the right data-based insights to help him make a more informed decision.

  • Type of Property: Townhouse
  • Purchase Price: $354,000
  • Current Valuation: $420,000
  • Weekly Rent: $360

Why We Recommended this Property

Based on Michael's criteria, we found a townhouse in a growth area in Southwest Brisbane. It is just a 1-minute walk from the proposed train line, which has now been fast-tracked ahead of Brisbane's 2032 Olympics. The townhouse has good capital growth potential and also provided the opportunity to earn a rental income from the start. 


The townhouse is located in an upcoming suburb of Southwest Brisbane, which is already showing signs of impressive property growth owing to local infrastructure development. Currently, the townhouse valuation is close to $70,000 above its purchase price in just 7 months while the weekly rent is covering his property costs. We're already chatting with Michael about his next property goal!

Bridget and her husband are both employed with the government and have never owned an investment property before. As first-time investors, they were understandably nervous and came with a lot of questions. A huge concern was owning an investment property that was difficult to rent and lost money. Ultimately, they trusted our knowledge of the property market and invested in a dual key property we recommended.

  • Year: 2020
  • Region: Southwest Brisbane
  • Type of Property: Dual Key - 2 bed, 1 bath, 1 garage and 4 bed, 2 bath, 1 garage
  • Purchase Price: $569,990
  • Current Valuation:  $750,000
  • Weekly Rent: $730

Why We Recommended this Property

Our goal was to find a property in an area with extremely low vacancy rates. The area we chose was a large employment hub, which meant a lot of tenants looking for good properties. The dual key property itself had a custom design and outdoor facade that was extremely attractive.


The dual key property was so attractive that the first open home received 5 applications. They were able to secure a tenant almost instantly, which alleviated all their fears. Moreover, the property has already appreciated in value, while the rent more than covers the property costs. Bridget and her husband were thrilled with the outcome and are hoping to secure their second investment property very soon.
