As you are saying its 10 years old apartment it much be in a posh area. Generally what I have seen is people like to rent in posh area rather than buying because the aim of staying in posh area would be nearer to work place and similar reasons.

And one more reason I'll say no because apartment value remains stagnate after 10 years because of depreciation in building.

Another connception is people want to stay in bigger buil-up area slightly far from the city rather than small unit in posh area. This is applicable if someone want to buy and stay in there.

So, I'll suggest not to go for it, if its only for investment.

Thanks & Regards,
Manas

i want to add one more point here,

as you said, you want to sell it later, if the buyer want to take it on loan, his eligibility on old apartments will be low when compared to the new ones.

as its 10year old, the loanamount disbursed from the bank will be low.

Its always easy to rent out given the flat is located in a developed area(IT proximity). But at the same time since the flat is already 10 years old thus it'll be always difficult to sell it. And it'll be even more difficult to sell it even closer to market price.

I suggest you to look into this before buying any property...
