About Us

About Us

Torcana is an award winning investment specialist which promotes a variety of real estate products. Our primary goal is to find ways of investing in rental properties with strong cashflow without taking unnecessary risks. Through rigorous due diligence and a long term “on the ground” approach, we help people to grow their net worth by taking ownership of assets that are stable and offer genuine long term value.

We have found that one of the best ways of building relationships with like minded people is to write about the market from the point of view of a long term investor. For that reason, in addition to our blogs and podcasts we also publish a range of 18-25 page buyers guides which are free to download.

Our focus is on established and affluent areas with strong domestic rental and resale demand. We only deal with cash flow positive properties which have all of the fundaments in place (location, price, unit size, build quality, interior fittings, amenities, transport links & property management).

Our knowledgeable and experienced team provide a wide range of sourcing, marketing, sales and aftersales services.
