    Hi team,

    Would you consider buying your first IP with a 10% deposit in Brisbane or Melbourne?
    I am looking to invest in my first IP but I am not sure if it's wise to get into a property with a 10% deposit.
    Do you think given the current scenario it better to wait and save more so I can put down 20%?

    what are your thoughts?

    What do you think the risk is of 10% deposit? How about having a 20% deposit and taking a 90% lvr loan?

    Part of this is to challenge your thinking, which might be based on incorrect assumptions.

    property type? Price range? Area? New? Old? House? Unit? Otp? List is endless.

    Should i buy in brisbane is like saying should i buy a share listed on the asx.

    I would do nothing at the moment, we just dont know how the economy is going to pan out

    Pay attention to sales, how longs houses are taking to sell and if prices are falling??
