Hi All, After some Brisbane info for my Sydney brain. I've been trying to retrain my thinking but it is difficult. Please bear with me. Late Sunday night brain. Investing and looking for 2nd property. I'm an ozzy citizen but live overseas and will for maybe 5+ more years. Goal is to have a retirement nest egg and small PPOR in 15ish years. Started with zero this year so probably won't get all the way but want to get as far as I can. First place, bought in July is a small flat in Nundah getting 7.5% yield. Very happy with that. Small 1br in single story 4 pack, tenant in place for 5 years and happy to stay 5 more. Now I have 400k-440max to spend in January (Cannot squeeze any more out due to overseas income exchange restrictions etc etc). Looking at options in Brisbane. I have read the forum a lot and advice seems to end up with a house at somewhere like Strathpine, Bald Hills for 400ish. Land value on 600sqm etc. Must be near a train station (Sydney Brain). But being from North Sydney I have a blockage about buying something so far out as it doesn't seem like a desirable location. I have seen friends paying megabucks to rent tiny flats in affluent areas of Sydney and fighting over them and think that, for eg. a unit, say a 2 bed, old style small block in New Farm for 400k will always be rented and will get CG as fast as a house a long way out (am I wrong?). I know that a house has extension or renovation prospects but not in a position to do that. Both a flat and house would be able to get new kitchens or bathrooms etc when I return. Cannot do fixer-upper or quick reno before renting. Another option is to spend less for a smaller loan, say 315k on a 2 bed small block in Clayfield/Nundah. Similar to what I have so not diversified but easy to rent out while away. They are at 2008 prices so cheap I think. Everyone seems to say land land land and location location location. But to me the land has no location and the location has no land. I am comfortable with the unit plan as similar to what is working for me. But I will kick myself if the unit is worth the same in 5 years and the house is up 20+%. PS Grew up in South Brisbane and never want to go back so no Logan sidetrack suggestions please. Thoughts?
