I have gone to a property seminar where the company in question will provide the finance, provide the home and guarantee the tenant for five years. What do you think of these deals?

Be very careful of these types of deals. How do they make this guarantee? What if they went broke? Defence Housing Australia guarantee tenants, rents, etc. but they are backed by the Government, however, I would be wary of these private developers who promise everything and provide everything. I have seen some work out but I have seen some shockers. If the area is good for tenants, the interest rate is really low and the house price is similar to others in the area, it might be OK, but get second and third opinions from experts in real estate who know the area and you trust!
