Just wondering whether anyone has any experience with Defense Housing?
If there is such a thing as cheap defence housing, I have yet to see it. The DHA is about sucking in patriots to house servicemen on the cheap. The only winner is the government.
Thanks for that perspective.
DHA properties tend to be overpriced due to the vacancy-free guarantee.
Yup... as I understand it, if a house meets the requirements listed on the webpage, then you can lease it to DHA.
I am onto my 4th DHA House and have nothing but praise for them. It is a no stress investment, you buy, you put away and you know that it is well looked after and maintained. My first one in darwin - was sensational , and I bought three others in Medowie NSW, Burton SA and Douglas, QLD. All have grown in value and I am happy with them.
I bought my last one privately and I know that Westpac recently released 300 odd houses ranging in prices from 330K to 700K all with leases up to 10 years remaining. My last one, I negotiated a good price and was happy with that deal. The DHA site is a fixed price and yes , I think you may pay overs..... But I can sleep at night knowing my house wont feature on Today Tonight or I will end up in some tribunal or have a nice hydroponic home renovation story.
Peace of mind - DHA is your place.
