Finding the Right Investment Property

Research your chosen suburb by checking all advertised listings in newspapers, the internet and real estate agents. Make sure that you know the price of recently sold comparable properties. It is important to choose an investment property with your head, not with your heart. Remember, you won't be living there so try to pick a property with features that appeal to the rental market, ie close to public transport, schools etc.

Sometimes investing in property in another state is a better financial option. Keep informed by reading reports on national property updates and best performing suburbs. Usually capital cities outperform regional areas, however some coastal options have also seen very good growth.
