Full summary

Wishart is a good spot to look at picking up an investment property to make the most of its student and young professional crowd, and it’s units and townhouses in this area that score well for affordability.

“It’s just so central. You can normally pick up a three-bedroom, two-bathroom unit for example, for anywhere from $400-$460,000,” says Hot Property Specialists managing director Liz Wilcox.

Larger units and townhouses are popular, particularly among students looking to club together in shared accommodation.

At Wishart’s median unit price you’re likely to be able to pick up a two-bedroom property in an older complex, but Wilcox suggests that larger, newer units are in higher demand from tenants.

“You’re better off going just above the average and getting the three-bed, two-bath, units or townhouses that are a lot newer and better for depreciation from an investment point of view,” she says.
