    There was I believe a similar thread on SS where members post a great deal, or perhaps not so great.

    Its nice to see some numbers and outcome, ie whether you sold it, accessed equity etc etc.

    Does anyone want to share??? Does not have to be anything recent, can be an older deal.

    Every purchase has a story...

    In April 2013, my mum wanted to go to Kingswood & Penrith to check out some properties. I thought it wasn't a good use of time but I went along. Got to one of the townhouse complexes where the time for the property we wanted to see was nearly over. Ended up at the wrong property where the agent was locking up. She showed us the townhouse. I said the rental yield was rubbish at 6% as we only liked 7%+ return. I thought it was a nice purchase for living but not an IP. A few days or so later, realised that Sydney market was starting to rise and there is a need to make the most of it. The listing agent lost the listing to one of my colleague's dad in the region. He told me I could get it for 320k as the previous agent had over promised the seller for a while. I had decided I will pursue this deal to diversify out of Mount Druitt and buy a better property........been one of the best deals.

    Property Type: Townhouse on 300sqm
    Purchase Price: $320k
    Rental Return on Purchase Price: 6.15%
    Capital Growth: 60% in just over 2 years
    Location Upside:
    * Walk to the NEPEAN hospital
    * University of Western Sydney
    * Train Station
    * Penrith Westfields

    The airport at Badgerys Creek should help the area along nicely.

    Sydney market was in early stages and the existing portfolio didn't have as much equity. The broker we had at the time got us a product that had a 20k credit card at resi rates (higher than the market though) to help with the purchasing the costs.

    What I learned from this was it was great to focus on the 7% returns, but a little bit of flexibility around the rental return AND jumping in a rising market paid dividends!

    Hi guys, this is one of our little splitter projects nearing completion. This one caused us a fair bit of annoyance, but STOKED to be getting close to the final product. We are very proud of this, as these are the first upstairs living builds we have done.

    Brisbane Bayside
    Purchase Price: 572k (inc stamp and LMI)
    Site Prep Costs: 44k
    Construction: 780k
    Holding: 35k
    Total Cost: 1.43m
    Expected Val: 1.75m - 1.8m
    Rental yield: 5.5%

    In all honesty, we got pretty excited about the upstairs living build, and overcapitalised a little on this one, but it does have (distant) 120 degree bay views, and with a number of very positive recent sales (including one of ours :) ) in the area, we are confident our estimates are near the money.

    Cheers,

    Barrack Heights (near Shell Harbour) ....bought for 242k in Feb 2012.....now valued around 460-480k for a 3x1x1 house. ....rent not so good at 390pw.

    If I add another story...I will have distant Ocean views....you can also walk to expanded Shellharbour Shopping Centre.

    The good thing...is this areas is still moving albeit a bit more slowly now...
