Houses are becoming an increasingly sought after type of rental property, making them a great option for investors. 

Many property investors are looking to get a passive rental income while their property continues to appreciate in value. 

While in the past rental properties have predominantly been smaller, more confined dwellings such as apartments and units, there is an increasing demand for houses as rentals. 

As less people are buying houses, more families are renting, meaning there is a growing market for these types of properties, especially in tree-change suburbs. 

Consider Your Suburb Profile 

The real estate investment market is different depending on the region or area that you are looking to buy into. While in a city close to universities, small apartments would be appealing to renters, such as international students, this is likely not the case in smaller towns. 

When making a good investment, it’s important to consider all aspects of the real estate market in your chosen area, so you can get a thorough and comprehensive understanding of the short term and long term situation. 

While currently, there are record low vacancy rates for rentals, this may not always be the case. You still need to consider the suitability of your investment for your areas. 

Houses are becoming a hot commodity in smaller towns and in between metropolitan areas as there are less and less owner occupiers, and house prices continue to rise. 

In popular coastal towns, more and more property investors are buying land to build luxury apartments, making houses an increasingly desirable residential property for many.
