Determining the ideal location to buy an investment property in Australia depends heavily on the investor’s specific strategy, goals and budget.

Here are some key considerations to help you identify potential investment locations: Economic and Population growth, Rental Yield, Infrastructure and Amenities, Median growth of the properties in the area.

The deposit required for an investment property in Australia can vary depending on various factors, including the lender’s requirements, the property’s purchase price, and your financial situation. However, the general rule of thumb is to aim for a 20% deposit.

While a 20% deposit is often recommended, it’s important to note that some lenders may accept deposits as low as 5% or 10% of the property’s purchase price. However, in these cases, you’ll likely be required to pay LMI, which can add a significant cost to your loan.

Tip: Some occupations are entitled to borrow more funds without mortgage insurance due to the nature of their jobs.
