Hello all, I've been a long time stalker on this forum and I find everything about it is just fantastic. Basically I've been wanting to buy my first investment property for awhile but have my doubts on what/where exactly to buy to get me started because I'm not at all an expert. For example should I buy expensive, cheap, townhouse, unit, apartment, close to cbd or beach etc etc. Anyways I'm leaning towards buying something not too cheap and not too expensive, something that basically pays itself off so I can buy the next one asap. Heres two examples im looking at. A) Sold Price for 17 Marion Street Adelaide SA 5000 B) Sold Price for 43 Amber Road Highbury SA 5089 I think they both make good examples but I'm more leaning towards getting a property similar to option B). What do you think? Oh and I think it's important to speak a little bit about myself so you guys can get a better idea. I'm 26, single, still living at home with parents but moving out soon to rent with two friends. I work full time as an system electrician, I clear about $1500 a week and I have a deposit of just over $100k. I'm in no debt what so ever and thinking about spending 400k for my first IP. Just incase you guys didn't realise I'm not at all an expert lol. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
