Affordable three-bedroom units in great neighbourhoods close to the CBD are rare indeed. This one however, is within easy access to a couple of good schools, across the road from a great café, and a nice walking distance from the CBD. The chances of finding such a good, neat, sturdy looking 3-bedroom unit in this price range in this location is like finding a needle in a haystack.
Although a little dated, the unit has always had the benefit of good maintenance. Given its premium location it is well worth considering as a makeover project which could increase both its capital value and its return on investment.
The unit has a beneficial north-facing aspect and receives plenty of natural light and warm winter sunshine. It has built-ins in all three bedrooms, its own laundry and a covered carport.
•The unit is currently tenanted and returning $285.00 per week in rent
•There is scope to update the unit and increase the returns
