The recent Property Investor Sentiment Survey aims to reveal just that.

Conducted in collaboration with Michael Yardney’s Property Update and Your Investment Property, the survey shows that on the average, Australian investors own 3.38 properties.

Around 28% of the 2,250-plus respondents said they had 5-10 properties, suggesting that a decent proportion of these property investors are already well on their way towards building sizeable portfolios.

These ownership insights,– Australia’s longest-running and largest survey of Australian property investor sentiment – also reveal that 39% of investors own just one or two investment properties.

Affordability is another factor, with almost 400 respondents indicating that they lack the deposit or equity to invest further.
