Hi there. Just a quick introduction, I am almost 26 years old, living in Sydney with very little to no knowledge and experience of real estate. I am interested in learning about real estate and property investing though. A rough goal is to buy a few investment properties to better my income and also to buy my first home. Currently I am interested in buying my investment properties first as my partner and I rent very cheap and don't mind renting while we get ourselves sorted financially. I am currently working an average of 33-35 hours a week earning roughly $680-$715 per week. My roughly current breakdown is this: $75 Rent per week $92 Car payment per week (about $1500 to go and it will be paid off) $100 Groceries - average $40 Gas and Petrol every fortnight $288 goes into my house deposit savings account Whatever is left over I keep incase I need to use it. If it's not used the night before pay day, I transfer more into my savings. I treat myself to a book, a new top etc once every fortnight or so. Would getting into property be smart for me? Am I able to do it on such as small income? Am I stepping in the right direction? What could I do to further go about all this? I am thinking about buying my first investment property in Melbourne maybe in an area such as Tullamarine. I don't know too much about the area but it's close to the city, I can afford to buy there, close to the freeways and near an airport. I am not interested in buying a home in Sydney currently as it's too expensive and I'd rather not fork out 600k for my first home! Would really love some advice.
