Are boarding houses the next gold mine for property investors ?

That’s where my money is going, but, there’s a but, you must have,

  • Quality
  • Hi Tech
  • Superb Design

Here’s the scenario pay $500,000 for a 3/4 bedroom house on the Sunshine Coast and rent it for about $500/week or design it right and MAcH10 will rent it from you for ten years starting at $600/week.

That is an extra $5,200/year with no vacancy and no maintenance for 10 years.

So, are boarding houses the next gold mine for property investors ? The numbers say yes!

Institutional property investors are starting to see the market as this proposed Parramatta development shows.

It won’t belong until healthcare is wired into your home.

The ability to reach out across space and physically interact with a person or object on the other side of the planet isn’t just a new technological concept – it’s something the human race has simply never been able to do before.

Although the use of tactile internet in healthcare has the potential to completely revolutionize how patients and doctors interact, the horizontal application of the technology is much wider, even within healthcare.

For example, senior doctors and teachers will be able to use tactile connections with students in faraway places to demonstrate surgical techniques, or to coach diagnosis methods. Someone with impaired vision could even use the equipment to add physical context to an audio/visual experience, bringing another dimension of sensory stimulation into the picture.
