The Block: Depreciation appreciation could see Hannah and Clint triumph
Josh and Elyse are firming as favourites to win The Block, but savvy investors could pick underdogs Hannah and Clint.
Sportsbet.com.au has revealed the odds for Sunday’s finale. The Block properties will go to auction on Saturday, and punters have picked Josh and Elyse as the clear $1.60 favourites to take the outright win.
The couple have more money behind them than all other teams combined, sportsbet.com.au said. They’re followed by Ronnie and Georgia at $4.50, Sticks and Wombat at $6, Jason and Sarah at $11 and Hannah and Clint at $15.
But investors may favour Hannah and Clint’s house for its tax benefits, according to BMT Tax Depreciation. Analysis by the company found that the Queensland couple’s property offered the highest amount of depreciation deductions, with a first-year deduction estimated at $82,304.
“Hannah and Clint’s property may prove attractive to savvy investors who are looking to capitalise by renting the property and claiming the additional deductions available from depreciation,” BMT Tax Depreciation chief executive Bradley Beer said.
While Hannah and Clint’s property offered the highest first-year depreciation, Josh and Elyse’s offered the highest total depreciation at $2,176,698.
