Hi everyone, I have been a longtime follower of this forum but am only now a first-time poster. I would like to get some opinions on my situation. I bought my first home in Box Hill in 2012. Since then it has jumped up very high in it's value (over 40%). For work-related reasons I need to move and I intend to purchase a new PPR in the new location (still in Vic but other side of town). I can either sell the house and use the cash to purchase the new house or I can hold onto the Box Hill place, rent it out and buy a smaller place (probably a unit) in the new location. I do not know what to do. This is the only asset I currently have so I want to make sure I make the right decision. Is now a good time to sell or would I be better off waiting? It would be very unlikely that in the future I would be able to purchase an investment property, particularly the way house prices are in Melbourne at the moment. But then I also worry about whether or not renting the place out will be stressful - finding tenants, repairs, maintenance etc. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!
