So I'm looking to buy my first investment property in the next 6 months or so. I'm quite confused about where to buy, I've read as many books as possible and lots of mixed responses in regards to investing in houses vs units. So my salary is about 50K a year ..quite pathetic I know! However, I've saved about 60K over the last few years. At the moment I'm thinking of staying away from units and looking at the following: 1. Townhouse or villas in an area like wentworthville, greystanes, pendle hill etc. 2. House in somewhere like penrith, cambridge gardens, cranebrook etc. Anyone know how good townhouses or villas are as investment properties? Budget will be up to 350K Any suggestions would be fantastic!!
