    Hello All…..

    Been looking at buying an investment property in Sydney

    and have come up with the following locations: Balmain, Wentworthville, Chatswood, Camperdown

    Any thoughts on the above areas or any other areas you think are great spots

    Looking to spend between 300 to 500k on it and then rent it accordingly…..

    Don't know of any houses in Balmain, Camperdown or Chatswood for that price range, do you mean units? (Even then you'd struggle for anything more than a decent/modern one bedder except at the top end of the price bracket).

    Being a sceptic of median house prices, get hold of a copy of the SMH or other median price guide for 2009. Look for suburbs which had massive rises in median unit prices eg Greenwich. This is not generally indicative of huge cap growth but of recent sales of new units which have skewed the results – 2009 will show a drop in median prices (unless there are other stages/developments to come online this year). Those suburbs which have had big drops have been affected by both the general slowdown and the previous years developments having washed through the stats.

    the best way to get it done is that incest for your pension and get relaxed about the future.
