Director, Aus Property Professionals

In 15 years as a property investor and developer, Lloyd has accumulated a $10 million portfolio that is cash flow positive. Lloyd started his portfolio when he was a teacher and has developed a diverse portfolio of blue chip, middle and outer ring, and dual income properties. This allowed him to retire from the rat race and now he helps clients achieve their own financial and lifestyle goals.

Aus Property Professionals director Lloyd Edge is a passionate property investor and buyer's agent who achieved financial independence while still in his 30's. Lloyd works on behalf of buyers, not sellers. He holds a Diploma of Property Services, is a fully licensed real estate agent and holds buyers agent licences in multiple states. LLoyd is also a member of Property Investment Professionals Australia (PIPA). Lloyd has a thorough knowledge of the Sydney and Brisbane property markets as well as key regional areas including Newcastle, Wollongong and the Central & South Coasts. Lloyd and his wife Renee have featured in property investment magazines including Australian Property Investor, Smart Property Investor and Your Investment Property, as well as The Daily Telegraph.

Lloyd has also been interviewed on top rating radio stations 2GB and 2UE. His investment strategies have attracted the attention of real estate commentators such as Kevin Turner of Real Estate Talk, Ryan McLean of onproperty.com.au and Aidan Devine of Key Media. Lloyd has a diverse range of investment strategies and places importance on achieving equity gains to maintain a cash flow positive portfolio, quintessential to portfolio growth. His strategies allow him to "manufacture" equity without having to wait for the market to rise.

Lloyd helps clients design a property portfolio that will help them achieve financial independence. He sets clients a strategy clearly defining what type of properties will help them reach their financial and lifestyle goals. He then acquires the appropriate properties for these clients based on the clients strategy and financial briefs. Lloyd's property investment motto is "You make your money when you buy, not when you sell". He has helped numerous clients make a large amount of equity in a short amount of time by buying well located properties, under market value as well as building and developing to create immediate equity.

He uses a range of strategies targeted to specific situations, including:

  • Buy and hold for capital growth
  • Buy for cash flow
  • Buy below intrinsic value
  • Granny flats
  • Sub-divide/strata title (eg. duplex development)
  • Renovation

The process used by Lloyd and his team involves conducting thorough research on each property including building and pest inspections, analysis of the neighbourhood, proximity to local transport, shops, education, employment opportunities, rental returns, vacancy rates and comparisons to similar properties in the area. Working as a buyers agent and property developer, Lloyd loves to help other people replicate his success. “Property became my passion when I realised that it can be a vehicle to financial independence," he says. “Achieving equity gains while maintaining cash flow is essential to portfolio growth and ultimate financial independence. “More than anything, I love to use my knowledge and proven strategies to help others to achieve their financial and lifestyle goals." Lloyd has a teaching background. His educational skills and excellent communication techniques prove invaluable to clients. He has worked in a number of areas of education across Sydney and now uses his experience to educate people about property and how it can set them on the path to financial freedom.
