No, this isn’t a trick question but if you can answer it, you’ll have a better idea of the property you should be investing in.
If you get it right, your renter should pay the bulk of your investment property through rental payments. If you understand the renting population and what they’re attracted to, you’re half way to ensuring your property is rented out regularly and reliably. Different suburbs and regions attract different kinds of renters who will look for different features in a property and location. The kind of renter who is looking for a property in the inner city is likely to want different things than the renter looking for a property in the suburbs. Things like good cafes and funky bars within walking distance, a gym, shopping and public transport close by. However, someone renting in the suburbs, is more likely to have a family, want to be close to good schools, parks and playgrounds and within easy driving distance to shopping malls and employment hubs.
