Hi all, I'm a young male working in healthcare, 120k p.a + overtime I'm interested in purchasing an apartment to live in, and the apartment I'm looking at is about 290k and has all the facilities I want (pool, sauna, gym) and is located centrally to my hobbies (jiu-jitsu and surfing). It is central to a tram line and shopping centre also. I would happily reside there for 10+ years and I like the idea of not having house inspections / leases / being able to renovate. However it does tick a lot of the negative boxes for apartment investing, with a body corp of approx $100 a week, high rise, pool, sauna, gym etc. I'm not expecting it will appreciate similar to a house and land, however would be happy if it retained it's value with inflation. Is purchasing this apartment a dumb idea or justified given I will reside there long term?
