澳洲Australia property Bought first IP thanks for all your help


在澳大利亚 I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo

I think Kingsville is a good buy at the moment. Congratulations!

That's awesome! Did you end up buying the one with balcony or the open plan one?

Well done and welcome to the "One Bedroom" club.

Bought the open plan apartment, no balcony but it has good light is northerly facing and quite spacious for a 1 bedroom apartment, not too far from yarraville too (15 minute walk) which is a big bonus i think

Bought if for around $245,000. Planning to live in it for first 6 months to get the FHOG then plan to rent it out. Looking at the rental market id say i can probably get around $225 per week for it.

Congrats Nick!!! was wondering about you just the other day. Did you end up buying at auction or through the old lady? Agree with others, first one is usually the hardest! so it's all up from here!

That's similar to what i did with my first Nick. I bought the place as an IP so that the bank would include rental income since I didnt meet serviceability otherwise. Day it settled I moved in and applied for FHOG, gave it a lick of paint and moved out to start renting it a few months later.

Bought private. Between the 2 i guess i just did the simple thing and thought which would i prefer if i was going to live in there, and it was a simple choice in the end. It's a 15 minute walk to the train station which i don't think is too bad, obviously not ideally close but i don't think you can have everything, and i think kingsville is a suburb which will really boom as yarraville becomes too expensive.
