What happens to the value of property that’s been sold?
Australian property consultants and property consultants can be a big part of the country’s wealth-building process, says Australian Property Consultants Association executive director Ian Clements.
But in the past decade, many properties have been sold at the wrong time, or the wrong price, and the value has been lost, he says.
“It’s one of the reasons why there are so many issues around property development that aren’t being looked at,” he says, adding that while it may be easy to sell off a property and move on, it’s a bad idea.
One property that has gone through this cycle is a property in the city of Brisbane.
It was bought in 2011 by a company called Landmark Capital, and a few months later the property went on the market for a whopping $12 million.
The property is an industrial property with offices and a retail centre on the first floor.
On the second floor is a large open-plan terrace that’s surrounded by a large glass wall.
There’s also a small swimming pool and a gym on the third floor.
But it’s all very new.
After a long period of neglect, the property’s owner, Landmark’s former partner, bought the property for $12.6 million in December 2011, and began renovating it.
Mr Clements says Landmark is a company with a history of selling bad properties and making money off of them.
He says Landmarks management has done a poor job of maintaining the property, and has not invested in its upkeep or maintenance, which are key components of property development.
Landmark has also done a terrible job of managing its inventory, and Mr Clements believes this is because the company’s management team has a poor track record.
As a result, the market price of the property has dropped over the years, from $13 million in 2011 to just over $6 million now.
This is a real estate agent’s nightmare: you have to look at every single sale and every single transaction to make sure you’re buying the right property, Mr Cmes says.
“It may sound like a really dumb problem, but it can be the most critical piece of your investment strategy.”
Mr Landmark has since sold the property and is now looking to sell another industrial property in Brisbane.
Mr Cenges thinks Landmark needs to change its management team and focus on more efficient, profitable and sustainable operations.
We need to be focused on making sure that we’re investing in the right people, and that we’ve got the right capital to do it, he adds.

Property agents can help buyers, sellers and investors understand the different kinds of properties available, and help guide them through the process.
They work closely with developers and property developers to set up the right sales and purchases for each property type.
A key feature of property-based investing is that the market is open to everyone, and investors can use their personal wealth to build up their investments and take advantage of opportunities that may arise in the future.
Property investment is an effective way to increase your personal wealth, according to PropertyInvestor.com.
You’ll have a lot more flexibility and control when investing in property, says PropertyInvestee.com, as you can use the money you save to buy properties that you believe are the best in their price range.
But for some investors, property-related investing can be risky, says property analyst Nicky Woodhouse from real estate agency Landmark Property Management.
While the value can fluctuate in a market, property is a very stable asset, so it’s easy to lose your investment.
For those who are looking to invest, you’ll need to understand the value, and how much it is worth, before you take on any potential losses.

Read moreProperty experts say the property-investment market is growing at a rapid rate, but the value is still low.
In 2013, the Australian Bureau of Statistics estimated the value per square metre of property in Australia was $1,500.
In 2016, that number was $2,400, according the Australian National University.
Australia’s property market is worth about $12 trillion, according Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
But the value could be higher if the Australian dollar stays strong, or if Australia’s real estate market continues to expand.
“A strong dollar could be a major catalyst for the value increase and for property investors to get their money out of Australia, and if that happens, the value will increase,” says Clements from the Australian Property Consulting Association.
