Buying an investment property is a smart way to build up your financial portfolio. Our Managing Director John Macalyk has one ESSENTIAL top tip for residential investment property buyers: buy in a growth area. This requires some research, patience and smart thinking; but ultimately, will ensure your investment grows in value in the years to come. Some lower cost property areas are equidistant from the CBD as high value areas – these lower value areas are great places to look for investment properties; they’re not trendy now, but will be in the future.
