I live in Sydney and I work in the CBD. My wife and I have thought about living on a rural property with a hobby farm one day when we retire but there's still a long way there. Ideally, to buy a rural property to rent out until we use it for retirement or holiday. I've read about comments that buying a IP property for future retirement is not a great idea due to changing population, circumstances etc. Has anyone done this or thinking of doing this? Thank you.
