    22 and just starting out and been thinking of this.
    Is there any flaws with having 50% of your properties with decent capital growth and breakeven rental profit AND 50% of your properties with high rent yields to put in an offset account?

    Message me on FB if you want to talk more.

    Depends on your situation. Mainly with Tax and your vision/road map. Really can’t say cause it’s so dependent on all the untold factors.

    Hey Sam

    Welcome aboard.

    Nothing wrong with aiming for a mix of growth and cashflow – it’s what I’ve personally done.

    As mentioned above though – there’s no solid answer that can be given as there’s no one size fits all with property investing.

    Any negatives to my strategy?
    my aim was to use the rental properties to provide cash to save for another house instead of using capital growth which i think is more risky in the long term gearing wise.

    Hi Sam that’s what I do with my portfolio. I try and use the same method. Buy 1 with 20% deposit(capital growth) use equity from 1st to buy cashflow repeat etc I was lucky that I got high growth quickly. Your young like me when I started so you have the most important thing on your side which is time. It depends on your long term goal and if your a low income or high income earner? But I think having a mix makes for a stronger portfolio.
