What Percentage (%) Of Australians Own an Investment Property?

Does it seem to you that everyone you know owns an investment property?
Here are some surprising facts:

Just 7.9% of Australians own an investment property with most owning just 1 property

The most recent taxation statistics show there are 2.03 million individual investors, which implies most property investors own only one rental property

CoreLogic estimates there are 2.6 million investor-owned dwellings across Australia worth approximately $1.37 trillion. Investor-owned houses comprise 26.9% of all housing stock.

  • 18% of all investors or 1.42% of the Australian population owned two properties.
  • 5.5% of investors or 0.43% of Australians owned three properties.
  • 2% of investors or 0.16% of Australians owned four investment properties.
  • 0.8% of investors or 0.065% of Australians owned 5 investment properties. And then
  • 0.9% of investors and 0.068% of Australians owned six or more investment properties

So, 92% of people that invest will never pass the first investment property, meaning 9/10 people you talk to that do invest only have one investment property, yet we turn to our friends and family about property advice. We don’t go to a tennis coach to learn how to play golf, and I think we should adopt the same philosophy when it comes to making the right investment decision.
