Why invest in Canberra?

Investing in a granny flat in Canberra presents a good opportunity for investors or families alike. Over a decade ago, the ACT started permitting granny flats up to 90m2, eliminated the requirement for occupants to be related, and allowed rental on the open market. Investing in a granny flat becomes a strategic choice. This is especially advantageous in older suburbs with larger blocks, offering avenues for supplementary retirement income, aiding in early loan repayment on the primary residence, or providing accommodation for elderly parents or university-aged children in proximity to family.
