Hi all - long time reader, first time poster. Have been saving profusely over the past few years and now looking to finally hit the market. With so much great information and assistance on this forum I thought I'd also say hello. Quick elevator pitch on my situation for reference: Mid 20's; Saved a deposit of ~$200k, don't need to spend 100% of that, but keen to as job heavily restricts other forms of investment (particularly equities); Looking at spending around ~$600-800k on a house (rather than apartment / unit); Focused on future capital gains, can cope with low yield but would prefer a place that's easy to rent out; Investment property, rather than PPOR, as moving overseas with work mid-year; Like Perth - grew up there and will 100% return one day. Also like the outlook from a macro perspective; Been heavily looking at suburbs in the Scarborough / Wembley Downs to Tuart Hill area, however acknowledge with my price range that there's several other opportunities. Any potential advice / comments would be greatly appreciated. While I've put myself off to a good start on the deposit front, I acknowledge I'm starting from an extremely low base knowledge wise and have everything to learn. Thanks in advance all!
