Buying a property to rent out

    I wanted to get advice on an idea I had to see if people think it’s a good or bad idea?!

    so I have built up 30,000 in savings. I rent an apartment but can’t afford a mortgage for my family with my salary. I was thinking I could buy a small 1 bed apartment somewhere where the houses are cheaper and rent it out. That way it could be a good investment without letting my savings dwindle away with inflation. The tenants would then pay my mortgage. Or am I missing something? Thanks

    I really think you need to keep the money to get a place to live. First own mortage and then an investment mortage.

    Read all the threads here on rental property and you will soon change your mind. A one bed in a dodgy are is a complete disaster.
