Hi guys, I am currently 26 I am currently looking to retire early. I invested in crypto currency before the bull run and have accumulated a little bit over 300k after tax which I can invest in the property market. I am a software engineer currently on a 80k salary package in Sydney. My goal is to bring in 100k a year. I am looking to buy investment properties in Australia. I was thinking of investing in places with a decent population and growth in cities such as Melbourne, Sydney, or Perth. I am wondering what the best investment strategy for me could be is? I have read and done some research on how some people can retire on 3-5 properties but I am quite confused as I have been researching and doing some calculations based on assumptions. Say if on average one property makes me about $6k per year, if I had 5 properties will produce me with an income of $30k I am confused as some people have said this can make them over 100k a year. With a capital growth strategy, say I buy 5 apartments for 300k wait 10 years for 600k this will give me a total of 1.5mil before tax but I am looking for cash flow as I want to be able to get income immediately. Just wanted to ask what would be the best way to maximise/capitalise on this great opportunity I currently have? Thanks!
