Victoria’s regional cities present many opportunities for the astute investors or individuals looking for a guaranteed return on investment. The 2020-21 property market has played a vital role in getting property investors to review inner-city investments as international property investors dive and the average rental vacancies rise within Melbourne. It’s been a catalyst amongst property investors as buyers move from the city and come back to the building game following the slow downfall of Melbourne inner city property values. More investors are now looking to regional parts of Victoria such as Geelong and the Surf Coast that usually record strong price growth and have the benefit to overflow from the strong population growth occurring in Melbourne.
Geelong ranks as one of the Top 5 markets in Australia, in terms of sales volumes and potential for price growth – supplying a diverse range of property for different budgets. Suburbs across the region are among the most profitable in regional Victoria. There is a renewed demand in homes and investor interest in Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula and it comes as no surprise that Geelong continues to emerge as an incredibly strong local economy – a busy market, driven by its affordability.
Our client’s investment journey started with Project Circular a little less than 5 years ago in which we have helped grow their property portfolio significantly. Living and working across the bay in Hampton, our clients had to think beyond their own backyard and tap into a growing market to make their property portfolio to work and grow – quickly.
‘We were on the hunt for a market that would allow us to do more with our money, and the Geelong property market is perfect strategic platform whilst partnering with Project Circular to make it all happen. It meant that instead of investing our money into an already built apartment and struggle to obtain consistent rent in a declining inner-city rental market, Geelong gave us the option to buy land, subdivide, build, rent and / or sell.’
The competition and liveability options in Geelong are growing rapidly, with population growth a strong driving factor behind significant infrastructure and commercial investment. Greater Geelong is becoming the hub for savvy investors as we’re witnessing the increased investment by clients of building long-term industry relationships with like-minded financial institutions, architects, builders, joint-venture partners, landowners and sales agents and developers to unlock the maximum value in each of their investments.
‘When looking for a builder, Project Circular were the only consultant and builder with investor values in a packed marketplace. Adrian was quickly able to help us strike hot investment sites and transparently detail the potential return on our residential property with detailed price plans.’
By 2047, Greater Geelong will be internationally recognised as a clever and creative city-region that is forward looking, enterprising and adaptive. Momentum in property investment is predicted to rise due to the combined impact of population growth, diversified industries, new infrastructure and increasing recognition of the regions potential. First-time builds and seasonal investors are recognising that buyers and renters are prioritising lifestyle as a leading investment factor. Project Circular understand the local Geelong area and we have the experience to help you improve the likelihood your application to build will be approved. From here, we deliver exceptional high-end results to surpass client’s expectations.
‘Despite living across the bay, throughout the build process, we were across every detail. Project Circular implemented a detailed quality control plan throughout; underpinning each development through accountability for contractors, regular project meetings and maintaining complete records of costs, variations and quality.’
‘Project Circular is paramount to our success. Working with Adrian directly, ensured the quality and construction of the development. He went beyond the brief and is a partner who not only just satisfied the qualification criteria but with whom we, the client has a positive synergy with. This streamlines the entire delivery process and ensures a consistent quality to build.’
We take pride in our partnership network, treating clients and suppliers as part of our own family with whom we share a mutually respectful and beneficial relationship. Our affiliations go beyond the terms of contract or standard business relationship. Instead, we take the time to develop collegial, collaborative partnerships, and foster open community to deliver the best result for each development. This is the key point-of-difference, because it means with our consultant and builder offering the investor can specify exactly what they want in a property – from build to financial goals.
‘Adrian is central to the vision and progress of our investment developments. For him, it is imperative that he continues to manage the relationship from the commencement to the handover process, working in tandem with suppliers and trades and prioritising clear communication. As an investor, we appreciate this hands-on approach, which has led to several longstanding partnerships.’
Don’t waste time spinning your wheels without getting results and trying to fit into an investment market that doesn’t give you options. ‘Adrian and his team aren’t regular builders, they’re an investment vehicle – always ensuring our investment is well matched to the outcome and goals we’re wanting to achieve.’

Discover how our tactical steps and leadership helped maximise design potential, planning and build for a Senior Home Lending Specialist recognising now is the best time to invest with such low interest rates.
Designing and building your investment property can feel like moving mountains at times, with plenty of frustrating obstacles along the road and invisible options on how to maximize property potential…
I know, banks may not loan out the money you need, the architects you hired can’t come up with the blueprints they promised, and the back and forth between you and another builder crushes your investment dreams and costs more money unnecessarily. I’ve heard it all and I’m here to reassure you that planning and building your investment property with Project Circular is a wonderfully productive and rewarding experience.
On the flipside, being faced with so many choices and uncertainty about the potential outcomes can be mildly terrifying, especially if you have never before had to make decisions or have little time to manage and stay ahead of all the variables – but our objective is to help you every step of the way.
Engaging with Project Circular early, means we can help you develop plans with our architect, provide exact budgets and costs as well as simultaneously run through council and give you practical insight into how your property potential can be improved.
The successful synergy of the Osborne Avenue project started from the very first phone-call when the investor, a senior home lending specialist at the Commonwealth Bank, brought their non- negotiables to our first conversation and I listened to their must haves – tenacity and maximised potential, being the guiding elements.
“Adrian provided his expert advice in advance and immediately knew what was possible without needing to reference council regulations. This was genius and positioned us ahead of the investor game.”
Understandably, investors, too, often want to fast track the process of building wherever possible and may be less concerned about personalizing the build and more focused on maximizing the potential return on their investment. We get it. In fact, we only proceed with plans until our clients have an exact cost from us. This assures we can get council approval on what you planned, and investors start collecting returns sooner than anticipated.
To ensure our clients plan and build an investment property that brings about a competitive edge, we make sure the blueprints clearly show how your design should be built and what it will cost you. “Having detailed breakdowns and a true investment cost upfront with no room for
additional or hidden expenses along the way, means there’s no need (for us) to re-apply for extending borrowing capacity and have the project stall.”
After our first meeting with our Osborne Ave clients, we sat down with our architect and extended team to layout the client’s non-negotiables – emphasising the key elements the investors were not willing to compromise on. Project Circulars’ architects can make sure the design you need is clear cut and refine an impossible idea you have into something possible for me, the builder, to accomplish.
And since we already know your budget, we can assess the room for any lavish additions (remembering this is an investment property wanting to gain a competitive advantage, so why not, right?). If there are elements that eat too much of your budget, we can also make sure your must-haves stay in the blueprints and are built to perfection come hand-over day.
“Project Circular knew our competition upfront and there was no need for us, the investors, to research and better understand how our investment property could differentiate itself and appeal to more buyers in Geelong’s growing investment market.”
Choosing everything from the materials and colours for your roof, floor, bathroom and kitchen tiles, through to the interior and exterior walls, flooring, carpets and cabinetry opens up a lavish array of competitive possibilities.
Our interior and exterior colour-boards remove the guesswork from the selection process and ensure the investment properties look just as stylish as your nearest competitor that may have inspired the selection of your style.
I knew our consultant and builder objectives were met when I received a call from our Osborne Ave investors to say, “When we saw the approved planning permits come through, we knew celebrations were in order: the return on our investment property was well on its way, much sooner than we could’ve done so ourselves.”
This was and is a significant mutual milestone. No more putting up with a bland, spec townhouses that look like the rest of the street, and no more compromises on structuring your life around the investment. You’re on track for an investment property on your own terms, and competitive success to look forward to.
Inspiringly, the Osborne Ave project is currently at frame stage with completion of the townhouses due in June 2021.
