Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and looking for some advice. I am buying my first investment property, am looking at Thomastown/Mill park/lalor/Epping, preference in that order. Theres a lot more stock in my price range in Epping than the other areas. I do not want to spend above $410k as I want to try to keep my yield above 4.5%. I am looking for a 3 bedroom home with a buy and hold strategy, ultimately for CG. My slight concern with Epping is its on the fringes of melb and could be potential for new housing development thereby causing oversupply, but Mernda and Doreen are a bit further up so its not the last suburb in the area. It does have a bit going for it with the govt throwing quite a lot of money at that area and it being a key suburb for 'plan melbourne'. have others bought in this area, or have any ideas? thankyou!
