Investment Options – Houses Versus Apartments

By David Bell

If you're looking to invest in real estate in Rockhampton, one of the main points to consider is the type of property you'd like to acquire.

After all, there are a number of differences between investing in a house and investing in an apartment, with the main one being the type of income you're hoping to accumulate.

For example, if you're looking to make long-term capital gains, houses are more likely to increase in overall value heading into the future. The fluctuations in the property market make it a safe bet that your property could increase in value over the next ten years.

On the other hand, apartments tend to accumulate less capital gain. However, due to the demand for metropolitan units, their median rental prices are generally higher. This means that you could well receive more income from tenants rent week to week.

This could be good for making your monthly home loan repayments – allowing the property to effectively pay itself off over time. Furthermore, there tends to be less upkeep necessary for apartments and units, which could be good if you aren't able to be a hands-on owner.

However, it all comes down to the type of income you'd like to earn from your investment. Have a chat with the team at Ray White Rockhampton about the types of investment options available to you in the area.
