Michael Bentley, Citylife International Realty
Is a stand alone house a better investment than an apartment in Australia?
Houses are very sound investments in Australia, but be aware the the maintenance is usually higher than for apartments, and the rental returns tend to be lower.
Also they require more upkeep and looking after.
Properties in a apartment project usually have everything taken care of for you. They can be locked up and left. They are attractive to tenants and have low maintenance.
