Hi all, A few weeks ago my wife and I had our apartment burgled - thankfully we were insured. Discussions with our family took place shortly afterward and, as of Friday, has resulted in us obtaining a Family Guarantor for a Home Loan. We are very lucky and thankful for this assistance. We are now trying to work out whether or not we should buy a place to live in ourselves, or whether to invest in a property and simply find a new (and more secure) rental. Ideally the value of the residence should be between 500-600k to suit our budget. We're obviously at a 0% LVR but I am quite eager to remove the family security (i.e. value of 20% of the property) sooner rather than later. My wife and I don't have kids yet either, which makes me think it may just be better to find another apartment (for now) and purchase a house in an up and coming suburb in NSW/VIC/QLD. But is this so-called 'bubble' likely to impact capital growth in the short-term, and is it just better to get ourselves into our own house at this point? Any thoughts? Very appreciative of any advice you may be able to give.
