There are property experts who fancy regional investment over capital city.

But the latest CoreLogic RP Data pain and gain report suggests there can often be a pitfall in regional investment.

Throughout the regional markets the proportion of loss-making resales for houses and units was much higher than in the capital cities.

Across each regional area units recorded a greater proportion of loss-making resales than houses.

Regional Qld (15.6% vs 29.3%), Regional WA (20.0% vs 32.4%) and Regional NT (12.3% vs 21.9%) had the largest gaps between the proportion of loss-making house and unit sales. 

Proportion of total resales at a loss/gain, houses vs. units, capital city vs regions: March 2015 quarter.
