Me and Mrs brought a 492 sqm land , battle axe shaped , unshared driveway ( approx 100 sqm) for 455,000 ( 390000 loan ). Property is located in Marsden Park across the road from where Bunnings / Masters are. It was a quick purchase and like many things in my life , I was completely focussed on getting the sale thru prior to this New Year's. Having said that , I feel scared now for 2 reasons : 1. Shape of land ( I read in some forums that BA shapes lands should be discounted. Our's seems to be discounted but not too much) 2. Potential of growth in Marsden Park - concerned that i have brought close to a bust or a peak. My goal is to be able to sell this land ( perhaps after constructing a house on it ) by 2019 with CG. I want to use that CG towards a deposit for a place to live closer to the city. As much as writing this post has helped me clear my head , I am seeking opinions/thoughts from forum members regarding this purchase . Have I made a terrible financial investment or an average/good one ?
