A Unique Investment Opportunity — NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation
The introduction of the (National Disability Insurance Scheme) has changed the way in which people with disabilities and their families in Australia receive government support. Rather than state governments and other organisations providing funding, participants will instead receive support directly, thereby giving them options as to which service providers they engage with.
Central to this is the provision of Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), housing designed specifically for NDIS participants who require specialised living arrangements.
It is now possible for private and corporate investors to participate via the , in order to grow the number of specialist dwellings that are being built across the country.
What is NDIS property investment?
Investors being able to enter the SDA market represents a unique opportunity.
There is currently a shortage of high-dependency accommodation available in Australia. For approved properties which are built for those with specialised accommodation requirements, the Australian Government will pay NDIS participants’ rental costs for 20 years and provide investors with rental yields of up to 18%.
How does NDIS property investment work?
In order for a property to become available to NDIS participants seeking SDA, the property needs to be enrolled and compliant according to , and the owner is required to be registered as an .
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will then connect NDIS participants with investors and developers who provide “high quality, fit-for-purpose and innovative dwellings.” Individual NDIS participants will have an approved accommodation budget, and so they will be able to negotiate a rent directly with the housing provider, based on the size of the dwelling, its location and the accessibility it provides.
There will be a variety of platforms available for providers to find tenants, and there is also the option for SDA properties to be made available in other markets as well.
