So I don;t have any rental properties yet (I'm still saving up for a PPoR with my girlfriend at the time of writing), I was wondering what everyone's opinions were on properties with land? My partner and I plan on buying a Regular house as a stepping stone to what we really want. Something a little small to begin with. The plan was to do this and build a bit of a portfolio in the meantime, and then move to what we really wants afterwards. Our desired property is a nice house with some land for her horses so she can ride around and practice on. But recently I've been thinking about getting a property with land and use it as a rental property initially and move into down the track (5-10 years). This way I could renovate the house early on if I need to, and try to claim as much depreciation as possible in the process. I was just wondering what everyone else was thinking? Is this a good idea or a bit risky? Is it hard to find tenants for a house that has land? If it means anything, we plan on doing this in the Perth area, most likely north of the river. Thanks for everyone's opinions!
