Ethical Property is creating solutions to benefit those at risk of homelessness, as well as providing a positive outcome for investors. It involves the building and provision of affordable and quality accommodation for often forgotten Australians. With the added benefit of assisting small-scale investors to achieve long-term financial security in the process.
There’s a real housing crisis in Australia, especially dire in places like Queensland, where property prices are shooting up along with demand. While it’s difficult for everyday citizens to find a home, it’s almost impossible for domestic violence victims and people with disabilities, who’ve additional restraints (social/financial), as well as needs and limitations.
On the other hand, there are many able members of society who’d love to make a difference and have the means to do so, but might not know exactly where to start. By investing in a project with Ethical Property Investments, they’re powering their ability to bring major relief to many vulnerable individuals in need. It’s a holistic, complete approach to impact investing with the property.
My property development business is dedicated to constructing and procuring universally accessible homes. In the realm of government housing, residences deemed affordable for low-income individuals are priced at $80,000 for single homes and $120,000 for couples.
What is your favourite quote about “following your dreams”?
What advice would you give to anyone wanting to start their own business?
Find your purpose and pursue that. Success is a side effect of pursuing a greater purpose, it doesn’t have to be a goal.
Sometimes, simplicity is the key to success. This is one idea that arises when we embrace the idea that it’s possible to profit, abundantly, while making a massive social impact. Goro hopes to see other investment professionals using his strategy. While others are also building disability housing, no one has created such aesthetic and thoughtful homes, that genuinely uplift the spirit by speaking to our senses.
