Hi guys,

Uni student here in a pretty good situation where I have roughly 10k which I'd have free after purchasing essentials each year.
Currently I spend most of this on crap, but am thinking I'd rather invest for the future.
I'm just wondering whether this amount of $$ is enough to buy into the market and maintain a mortgage each year?
I vaguely know about investment from my parents and do understand it costs quite a bit, however if I were to choose the right mortgage option could this be possible?

Or even if I were to find some people to chip in to a syndicate-like situation, how much would be required on top of this?

    As a general rule for a first investment property I would look to getting at least a 10% deposit on the property you are looking to buy. Remember you also need around $30,000 to cover for stamp duty and other fees/costs.

    Keep saving, 10k deposit doesn't give you many options in this day and age of property prices.
