DHA investment properties are sold by us under a leaseback arrangement. This arrangement means you receive a long-term lease and a range of property care services. It’s a low hassle investment option with a simple management fee.
Investment properties are released each fortnight on the property search page.
Our properties are typically sold via a ballot system which takes place fortnightly. The ballot system gives anyone interested in investing in our product an equal opportunity to do so.
How to buy from us
Buying a DHA property is similar to purchasing any other property with a few key differences.
Before you buy a property you will need to register with us and provide written finance pre-approval from your bank/broker, or evidence of sufficient funds to settle the property.
Properties for sale are released each fortnight. You can view the properties on our website.
Prior to entering the property ballot it’s important to research the property, including location and associated costs, to be sure it meets your financial goals and investment criteria. Take a look at our four simple research steps, before entering the ballot.
When you have selected a property you wish to purchase, you should advise your DHA Sales Consultant.
For more information, see our step-by-step guide to buying a DHA Property.
If the property you wish to purchase is being sold by a ballot, please contact your sales consultant who will email you an online Ballot Entry Form to complete and submit by midnight on the day before the ballot is drawn.
The ballot is an automated process. Investors who have entered the ballot are chosen at random and given the opportunity to purchase the property they have selected.
If you are successful, you are required to pay a $2,000 holding deposit to secure the property. At this stage the contract process begins.
Properties sold via a property ballot are labelled on our website with ‘ballot’ and the ballot’s date. These properties are randomly allocated to prospective investors who are pre-qualified and have indicated a wish to purchase them.
A small number of properties are occasionally made available to buy outside of the ballot system. These properties are marked as 'Buy now', and are available for immediate purchase.
Settlement typically takes seven weeks from the date the Sales Advice is issued.
