American Property Partners was founded in 2011, guiding and advising clients looking to build a property portfolio in the United States.
Director Stephen McClatchie started researching the US property market after the global financial crisis (GFC) in 2008, discovering that the recession led to a chain of events resulting in a sudden and drastic free fall in American housing prices. Hundreds of thousands of home owners found themselves owning a house valued below their mortgage and walked away from their homes as a result, handing their keys back to banks.
For Australians, the GFC’s impact combined with the strengthened Australian dollar reaching parity in 2010 created property investment opportunities very different to those found at home.
Following this discovery, Stephen drew on his 20 years of experience in the finance and property industry to research, visit and invest in the US, enhancing his personal property portfolio. He soon decided that fellow investors could also benefit from the quality relationships and property sources he was creating for himself.
Stephen has learnt from the mistakes he made along the way, giving clients the benefit of his hindsight and experiences. This includes his previous purchase of a cheap $10,000 investment property, which is now producing net returns in excess of 40 per cent. However, it has created numerous headaches and is a time-consuming investment due to several ongoing issues.
As a result of this experience, Stephen personally determines which markets and individual properties make it onto the APP property listings, steering well clear of properties that look good on paper but do not perform as they should in the long-term. The APP team of portfolio strategists then work to create quality property portfolios that meet most budgets, ensuring positive cash flows with long-term revenues for our clients.
