Many people think investing in property is restricted to the wealthy that have cash to spare. But you don’t have to earn a big salary to start investing and making money in the property market.

The latest issue of Your Investment Property magazine provides top tips on how to invest on a low income and highlights 24 suburbs that are safe options for low-income earners looking to buy in the under-$250,000 to under-$450,000 bracket.

Editor of Your Investment Property Nila Sweeney says careful planning and budgeting are crucial when money is tight. But more than that, she says buying in the right area is key to ensure you have the best chance of making a profit at low risk.

“If you’re on a low salary, you should look at areas that are beginning to show signs of growth so your property will increase in value soon after you buy it,” says Sweeney. “This way you have a safety net in case your circumstances change for the worse.”

Sweeney also says looking in areas where properties sell relatively quickly is a good way to reduce the risk of your investment.

“If the average days on market is low, then you can be reasonably confident you will be able to sell quickly should the need arise. With this in mind, Your Investment Property has highlighted 24 suburbs in Australia that make safe starting points for the low-income investor,” says Sweeney.
