I'm considering selling my house (4 bed owner occupied family home in North West Sydney) and looking to upsize in the next 12 months out of Sydney rat race family reasons. In the meantime we will rent in the same area as the kids are in the middle of the school year and also its much easier to jump straight in when the right property comes along. Instead of finding a rental I have just heard about leasing back your property. If you were an investor would this be an attractive proposal if the REA offered it to you? One of the issues in my area however is that its probably a 70/30 spit with more OO than investors, plus investors normally go for the cheaper 3 bed houses. Pros for us is that we don't have to move once we sell however would this cause potential investors to want to offer less money than normal because of a clause that they have to lease it back to us?
