    $1.4 is fairly average in the inner city for both family sized units and terraces. You can easily get $1200 a week for them so depending on deposits it's not a bad investment at all.

    I agree! a good investment doesn't just happen. You can't just buy property anywhere and expect to get wealthy. If you spend $1.4m in the inner city, you're going to get high rent and high capital growth. If you spend that same $1.4m in the western suburbs you are looking at a completely different outcome.

    Yep this is what happened to us we had to move from our owner occupied house for work relocation. So now we negative gear our house and rent.

    Slightly off topic but if you believe the data, it looks like prices are falling. Possibly due to confidence levels down, or maybe just the economy going to Sh!t

    This article is from 2014 but it popped up in my Facebook newsfeed.

    It says that the statistics that state that most investors earn $80k or under is very misguided because they in fact do count the income after losses, not before. Some people with investment properties earn $20k or less. You can't service a property loan if your taxable income is $20k!

    I don't think there has been a decent PM since Johnny Howard. Not sure who I'll vote for, they all seem crap
