Consider the land size
For investment properties, you want to look for land that will enable you to build a home with a minimum of three to four bedrooms. “If you’re looking to increase rental returns, a minimum four is generally preferred,” he says. “Internally, if the block size allows, aim to provide at least two living areas. If the home is on the smaller size, try to create an illusion of space by adding higher ceilings and larger windows."
While the land size is quite important, it's not a deal-breaker. With the right home in the right location, your rental income can still be significant even in a two-bedroom home.
Don't overlook landscaping
Landscaping not only sets your home apart but also ensures you appeal to multiple demographics. Investors looking to rent the property out want something that is ready to go so that they can lease it straight away, while families, downsizers and retirees are generally looking for something low-maintenance. Low-maintenance is good for you too - you don't want the hassle of any maintenance issues or maintenance costs.
