Thinking about working with Opes? You're probably wondering: “How much money have your investors made?”

That's a fair question. And an important one, too.

After all, a good property investment company should be able to pick a good investment.

Here’s an example of a 4-bed house an investor sold for 49% more than he bought it for. That happened after just 4 years.

What’s the property?

This property was 8 Antrim Glade, Welcome Bay, Tauranga.

This 4-bed, 2-bath standalone home was bought for $685k in April 2017.

It was a New Build.

The property took 10 months to build and was completed in February 2018.

How much money has the investor made?

This investor had a change of circumstance and sold the property. They got the timing right and sold at the peak of the market – November 2021.

They sold for $1,020,000. That’s right, they made $335,000 from the property going up in value. That happened less than 4 years after paying for the property.

That means they sold the property for 49% more than they bought it for.

That works out at 9.1% per year; faster than the 5% we use when forecasting how fast house prices grow in Tauranga.

Over the same period, the average value of a property in Welcome Bay increased 52.8%. So this property increased at roughly the same rate as the rest of the suburb.

Do Opes investors always get above-average returns?

After reading this article, you might wonder ... “Do Opes investors always make more money than the rest of the market?”

The answer is “not always”.

(Sadly), we are not property investment oracles. We don’t have any special magic power to predict the market. Every. Single. Time.

But we do our best to try to get it right more often than not. That’s why we use data and number-crunching to inform our investment recommendations.

We aim to help you be a more successful property investor than if you found a property on your own.

But even after that number-crunching, high investment returns aren’t 100% guaranteed. They’re not locked in.

Investing comes with risk. The question is then how you manage it.
