Thanks Hans. Not wanting to discuss property prices, I do feel there is some value coming back into the market in general and would be looking at something for the long term (20 years). As I am 100% useless at DIY an apartment sounds "easier" for me but as you know there's the annual management fee to consider.Firefly if you are at the stage of buying an investment property - when you asked the question 'house or apartment' I think you are mad I wouldn't do it now but since you ask I have both but I would prefer house. Even if you have the cash to buy house without borrowing do the math’s and work out your profit taking in your time as well and then my advice invest it elsewhere.
Not true any more;not having to deal with Management companies. No legislation in this country so you are at their mercy.
