What are the advantages of investing in a townhouse?

Whilst typically smaller and with less outdoor space, townhouses are becoming more and more popular due to their open-style living and proximity to infrastructure and cities. Some of the advantages of investing in a townhouse are:

  1. Affordability – With typically smaller blocks due to shared spaces and reduced outdoor areas, townhouses are a more cost effective investment opportunity. This means they can be a good starting point for first time investors. They are also appealing to experienced investors looking for another way to diversify their portfolio.
  2. Low maintenance – With smaller outdoor space and the potential for a property manager to take care of shared spaces this is likely to be a less hands on investment.
  3. Depreciation claims – Not only can you claim on the structure and fixed assets but you can also claim depreciation on shared property items such as driveways and security cameras.
  4. Broad rental potential – Due to the typically modern, open plan design of a townhouse as well as the limited maintenance requirements – this type of investment is likely to attract a higher number of quality tenants. This can in-turn potentially drive up your rental returns.



Strong rental yields & capital growth strengthening with increasing demand.
