Before you start investing in any property, the first thing you need to know is what type of targeted tenant you’re looking for, to let out your property. Understanding your targeted tenant will determine what type of property you should buy in that area. Because different tenants have different priorities & needs arising from their lifestyles. And because of lifestyles, this have got a lot to do with how deep their pockets are.
1 way to understand their priorities is to 
look at the income categories they are belong to which we can categorize them into lower, middle and high income tenants.

Let’s look at what are this 3 
types of tenant looking for when they are looking to rent a property.
