Dear all, interested in your comments about the value of properties (free standing 3-4Br houses) in the outer east as an investment. We are looking at the possibility of Rowville, Mulgrave and Scorseby. These are further out than wanted look initially but for our budget the other option on this side of city is a 2 bed apartment closer to the city and both the CG and the yields over the last 5 years look to have been better with houses out in these suburbs. It is possible they have benefited from east link and the increases in value will plateau. On the other hand, they should increase if there ever is a rail link built, bit this is a very big if.
