From The Australian Interactive Container Do your own due diligence. A few years ago I thought, oh, I'd like a house up near Airlie Beach.... Then I checked out the house. It was not like the photos on the ad made it out to be (wide angle lens). And I checked the vacancy rate. It was around 8%. And it would be vacant when I bought it. Decided not to go ahead based on that (plus seeing lots of apartments in the area that did not look complete helped make up my mind)... Now I know so much better. Nice place to visit but not to own.
