Hi, I want to move to Brisbane and rent for 6 months then buy a house. So my questions are-
A. Should I sell my owner occupied unit in Sydney to pay for my house in Brisbane? (Valued $815k. Owing $315k)
B. Rent my Sydney unit out and that will cover the mortgage owing on it? But then I could be paying rent long term.(What are the tax implications for a future sale? ie.CGT)
I also have an investment property in Brisbane (4 months) but have no idea what I'm doing and feel overwhelmed with the debt and bills.
To be honest I only bought it because friends and colleagues said I should have investment properties but it has been very stressful and I don't fully understand the benefits.
Any advice would be appreciated.

    Sydney is at the highest part of the property cycle, now is good to sell and buy in Brisbane. Regarding your investment property are you expecting it to grow in a few years or is the rent worth it?
