Mortgage Offset In Style – Canton Beach Granny Flat by Acrow Investments

by Mar 9, 2021

The latest in a long line of our granny flat success stories saw a lucrative gem of a property built for some great clients in Canton Beach. This modern, stylish granny flat will definitely go a long way to helping our clients achieve their goal of offsetting their mortgage – and do it quickly.

Located in picturesque Canton Beach – an established lifestyle suburb adjacent to the more well-known Toukley – the value in our client’s existing property was certainly not found wanting. Yet now, with the addition of the granny flat, it has been bolstered even more.

Keen to hear about this latest project? Here’s an overview.

  • Project description: Boosting existing investment property income through the addition of a Canton Beach granny flat.
  • Result: A stylish granny flat that’s successfully offsetting existing mortgage repayments.
  • Project cost: $122,000.00 including CDC approval and construction fees.
  • Build duration: 14 weeks.
  • Return on investment: Canton Beach sees an average rental return of $370 per week. This means our clients will soon be able to offset their mortgage repayments entirely.

The location

Located on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia, Canton Beach is popular with retirees and established families. Sharing a boundary with Toukley – a popular residential and holiday town – makes it a particularly lucrative rental area that’s still got that laidback beachside vibe.

Not to say it doesn’t have its own attractions!

Situated directly on the foreshore of the Tuggerah Lake, Canton Beach makes for a tranquil holiday spot or, alternatively, a particularly picturesque home. Only a hop-skip-and-a-jump from town, it’s well within reach of numerous cafes, shops, and restaurants, keeping its residents content and its visitors entertained. The open Pacific Ocean is just over the ridge to the east.

All this combined makes it an ideal area for those with a mind for property investment or, indeed, investment improvement.

The project

The brief for this project was clear cut: help the clients maximise their returns from their existing investment property. Given the nature of the area and the promise of the existing property, we knew we’d be able to make their dream a reality.

The two-bedroom granny flat we built features vinyl flooring and a spacious, open-plan living and kitchen area. Combined with reverse-cycle split-system air-conditioning, stone benchtops, and lots of storage. Simply, the new dwelling boasts a modern feel that’s sure to impress any prospective tenant as well as the practicality to handle the prospect of sandy feet coming and going.

The numbers
