When considering your next house purchase, if it is dependant on where you would like to live and not purely an investment decision, some other key characteristics to consider could be the structure of the household occupancy.  Many times when I have assisted with unit purchases, the tenancy of the building has always been a top consideration between, holiday letting and the owner-occupier mix.

Rangeville household occupancy key characteristic is: Owns Outright at 41.1%, followed by Purchaser 31.6%, Renting at 25.5% and other 2%.
