Hi all, I've recently joined the forum and this is my first post. Here's my currnet situation: - Income: 120k gross + 80k(wife) - saving: 100k + 3k/month. - IP: 2br Newtown terrace. Purchased 640k, now 1.2m. equity 800k. As my kids no longer need nappies changed, I finally have mental capacity to plan for the next IP. I've been looking into buying a 800k ish HnL package in Bardia in the hopes of some CG. I understand the price is already gone up and I can't expect much CG like the old days. But after a visit to the site and Edmondson Park plans, and the local school(5min by walk) getting massive upgrade seems very promising. The house is on a 450sqm land($1100/sqm) and within walking distance to the school, future shopping centre and station. Commute to city takes only 45min, every 15min by train, not to mention the west sydney airport nearby. My very uneducated strategy is that hopefully in the next few years this suburb will continue to grow and with my increased equity I could start buying more affordable units. If it doesn't work out I'd PPOR instead - I must say it's such a lovely spot to raise family! Am I making a 800k investment mistake by putting too much emotion on it? Thank you in advance.
