have just been looking at the unit market, 2bdr brick units (older style) selling for $110-120 renting for $150 per week.
Vacancy rate is very low (under 2%) across Cairns, sales and growth appear to be levelling.
Speak to Chris Gay from Oconnor and Gay real estate.
Yes I have bought it – however I will be requesting a refund for quite a few reasons. Firstly I think it is too basic for a serious investor. There is no capacity to rollup multipel properties or analyse the impact of investments from your own PAYE income.
