first IP

I am new to investing and still trying to arrange/co-ordinate $ to buy my first IP.wanted to get some opinions from SS on Lilydale,VIC -
thats one of the suburbs which is affordale for me at this stage but I am curious about the rentability, can a buyers agent have that kinda info ?

Thanks in advance:)
You could also ring a couple of PMs in the area you're targeting and get some first hand information.

eg. Number of properties under management, current number of vacancies, even if there are specific pockets that are higher demand.
