    As I said, this would be a long term investment, wouldn't be buying just for the growth.

    Investment would be positively geared.

    Rural NSW I should be able to help you with info if you need it ( how long it's been on the market, what they paid for it etc )

    Yep, cities are obviously a better bet but the house prices in some areas are so low we could almost buy 3 houses outright

    I live in rural NSW (Murray river/boarder of NSW/VIC) and our town has a huge demand for rentals. Cheap house prices too.
