    I am in a similar boat to you. I think you are better to buy a IP and rent yourself provided that the rent youpay does not exceed what you would otherwise be paying in loan payment on your own home. This way the interest on your IP is tax deductible and so are all the other associated expenses with an IP. By renting yourself, you may be able to obtain a better property than you otherwise would if you had to buy your own home to live in.

    I agree,

    Just flogged my ppor to move back to Perth and rent is dirt cheap there. In the areas I’m looking in rental returns are 3-4%

    However I will buy a new ppor when I find some value.

    Meanwhile I will have my eyes skinned for some ip/wrap/reno/development opportunities.

    You know if I had $110K I would be buying more that one property…

    I would use as little as I could to pay a deposit on one property, leave the rest in a CMT and spend time buying as many properties as I could.

    I guess it depends where you are, and how much property values are, but I am in QLD where $200K buys something quite liveable, 10% deposit each, $110K would buy 5 and have some cash for improvements.

    Does anyone else agree?

    You could buy 4 properties for wrapping and make approx $16,000 passive income per year.

    But you would have to pay tax on this, and then pay for your rent with after tax dollars. So maybe not a good idea after all. Depends on your circumstances.
