Q&A

  1. 1. Why invest in real estate property in Australia?

    It’s easy to invest in Australia

    Unlike many other countries having strict foreign investment laws Australia is very investor friendly:
    ● No need to set up a business (company)
    ● No need to buy with the help of an Australian resident
    ● Getting approval for foreign buyers is quite easy (FIRB approval)
    ● National Consumer Credit Protection Act (NCCP Act, 2009) strongly protects investors’ rights.
    Australia is stable in regards to property market prices
    ● Australian real estate property market has a proven track record of stable prices
    ● No cases of prices fall more than 20% in one year
    ● Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) provides lending regulation and prudent economic management, which reduces the risk of price bubbles.

    Other overseas property markets (eg. the USA, Hong Kong, etc.) historically suffered crashes. Homes’ prices could have been dropped to 70% in one year, and investors experienced huge losses.

    This is not Australia’s case. No such volatility with its reals estates property market has been tracked for a long while.

    Australia shows the stable growth of property prices

    Real estate properties double in prices every 7-10 years on average. There are reasons for this:
    ● there has been a shortage of properties in the main cities
    ● the population grows faster than properties are being built
    ● people can afford to buy a house.
    Australia is an awesome place to reside

    Queensland (or the Sunshine State) has fantastic beaches and shelves. Its Gold Coast is the perfect place to live.

    New South Wales (or the First State) is famous for its wines, Sydney, of course, and vibrant nature spots.

    Victoria (or the Garden State, also known as the Place to be) is great for its Penguin Parade at Philip Island, and the Great Ocean Road, and Melbourne city sights.

    Moreover, many Australian universities are among the best in the world. So, Australia is a good place for education. For instance, the University of Melbourne in #9 in the Best universities for medicine 2019 (https://www.timeshighereducation.com/student/best-universities/best-universities-medicine#survey-answer).

  6. 6. Whose account should I transfer a deposit for the property? Who is responsible for its safety and security then?

    In case you buy in Bitcoins / Ethers / Litecoins you will transfer your first deposit for buying a property to Crypto Property Agency’s representative verified account at the official Australian cryptocurrency exchange Independent Reserve: https://www.independentreserve.com

    Independent Reserve is a registered Australian company (ABN 46 164 257 069). It is an audited, Gold Certified member of the Australian Digital Commerce Association (ADCA), which represents the Cryptocurrency industry in Australia.

  8. 8. How is a buyer protected from a sharp fall in Bitcoin?

    Everyone should realize one thing: all we know for sure at the end of each day are the facts.

    That means if Bitcoin prices rise on a certain day, all we certainly know is just that: the price increased. Financial analysts offer different explanations for why a cryptocurrency either raised or dropped in value, but it is almost impossible to know what exactly influenced the decisions of all the investors determining the price of a specific asset.

    Fortunately, looking at the certain cryptocurrency price history charts provides us information that we can openly research and interpret.

  9. 9. Which documents a buyer should provide to buy a real estate property?

    To start preparing the Agreement we only need your passport scan copy.

    In case any other documents will be needed further your lawyer (conveyancer) will contact you.

  10. 10. How to check if the lawyer I’ve hired is eligible to perform his activity?

    Basically, all lawyers are licensed in Australia. It’s impossible to practice legally without a license here. So, you don’t need to worry about your conveyancer or lawyer eligibility.

    Crypto Property Agency encourages you to choose a conveyancer by yourself. You may use Lawyers Directory to find one, eg. https://www.australianlawyersdirectory.com.au/

    We can assist you with this or you can hire one of the lawyers we cooperate with (link to lawyer service).

  11. 11. Does a buyer need to provide the proof of funds origin (regardless in cryptocurrency or fiat) to obtain an approval to buy a property?

    You should consult your lawyer regarding the process of obtaining approval to buy a property.

    All foreign persons need to apply for this approval at the FIRB website. Your conveyancer will guide you through this process.

  12. 12. Can a foreigner buy a property in Australia if he owns a company (business) here?

    Basically, yes. FIRB states (http://firb.gov.au/resources/guidance/gn03/): “Foreign persons that operate a substantial Australian business may apply to purchase established dwellings to house their Australian based employees”.

    There are other options for business owners.

    Please, ask your lawyer for further guidance.

  13. 13. Do you assist in buying an established Australian business in order to purchase a property for this company in cryptocurrency?

    Crypto Property Agency can assist you with this. Nevertheless, we strongly do not recommend this way of buying a property.

    When you purchase someone else’s company it comes as-is, and you buy it with all liabilities and debts. Naturally, you don’t want to take that many risks!

    We offer a better way: start operating your own business in Australia and thus you’ll be able to purchase a property after this.

    Our agency’s specialists are ready to assist you in starting your company.

  14. 14. How long does it take to finish the settlements in case I buy a property for cryptocurrency?

    First, you place a deposit (10%), after final arrangements and settlements you have 30 days to transfer the remaining amount.

  16. 16. How to pay taxes and other fees with Bitcoin?

    This process is quite easy. We are ready to assist our clientele in this.

    Crypto Property Agency has got verified account at the Independent Reserve Exchange. We use this account to accept your deposit, convert to Australian dollars and after this pay all necessary fees and taxes.

  17. 17. Is it possible to buy property anonymously?

    No, basically a buyer can’t be anonymous.

    Real estate agreements must identify a buyer against whom the agreement will be enforced. That is the Australian law requirement.

    Yet sometimes buyers seek to remain anonymous for some reasons.

    Sometimes an anonymous buyer (so-called Principal) may purchase a property through a so-called nominee.

    Here are two scenarios.

    1. Nominee signs an agreement to buy a property and then assigns this agreement to Principal who closes on purchase.

    2. Nominee takes title to a property and later conveys it to Principal.

    Who are the possible nominees? This may be your child or spouse, or any other family member, for instance.

    If you intend to proceed with this type of purchase, it would be in your best interest to ask for advice of a lawyer.

  18. 18. I haven’t found a property I’d like to buy in your catalog, but I found it in another agency/website. Do you assist in buying a real estate from other agency for bitcoins?

    Yes, Crypto Property Agency cooperates with other agencies in order to assist our clients in buying the desired property for cryptocurrency.

    This is possible even if the other agency (you’ve found a property you wish to buy from) doesn’t work with cryptocurrency.
