Hi all, I'm looking at getting my first rental property. -I would not be living in it at all, in an ideal world i'd like to have an area that would be able to get tenants very easily if needed... Yield doesn't have to be the best if there is abit more potential of property gain value to be had. I would like to know what people would look for for around ~$300,000. -I have been looking at closer to CBD area's/Brisbane Southside (Algester/Browns Plains/Acacia Ridge/Inala/Forest Lake etc) If anyone would like to chime into ANY of the following and share their knowledge it would be extremely appreicated: -Area's you believe have good tenancy rate's -Area's you see good potential gains -Property vs Apartment? (Body Corp Fee's) -Quiet family type suburban area's vs Closer to CBD -Is there any opinions also on old houses and when to steer clear, as i don't want to constantly be putting money out for fix-ups and constan repairs needing to be done... obviously at this price range for a home i wouldn't be looking at anything too new as they'd just be very very far out. Much appreciated, Glad i found this site hopefully i'll get some awesome suggestions and input!
