Hi, we are a first time investors looking to buy our first IP with a 500k-550k budget. We would be aiming for growth obviously since it is the first IP but with a decent rental yield so we are thinking the big regional areas like Newcastle, Geelong, and Ballarat but there might be good opportunities in Melbourne as they have just come out of lockdown. We want to engage a buyer’s agent for this purchase. I already have a few BAs in mind but would love to hear recommendations from those who have personally used them. Also how do we select the BA? What are the common questions to ask them? We obviously would prefer local agents rather than those who operate nationally. Considering our budget and goal which is growth and decent rental yield, are there any more areas we need to look at apart from the areas mentioned above? Would really appreciate your help, thanks.
