Every investor is looking for cash flow positive properties. But the reality is, these types of properties are increasingly few and far between. Generally, if you can find them, they’re out in the middle of nowhere, with little to no capital growth.
In the most general terms, an investment property should become neutrally geared within the first few years. To do this you need to increase the rent on your property regularly. Of course, a lot of landlords don’t do this for fear of alienating great tenants and having to re let the property year after year.
