    Hi bjsaust

    Thank you, we are aware of this problem.  Ever had one of those days?

    We understand that many websites, including ours, hosted by "Hostgator.com" have been attacked by Russian hackers.  Hostgator is currently in the process of rectifying the problem and we expect our website to be back to normal within the next 24 hours.

    We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.  In the meantime if you would like a copy of the pdf version of the FREE Report please email us at [email protected]

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Karen

    Obtaining the property next door is a smart move.  Good luck with that and if you happen to see us at Kathy and Stuart's property when you driveby pop in and say hello.

    All the best with your future plans!

    Hi Karen

    We are so pleased for you.  There are some great bargins in Mackay at the moment.

    A couple of our clients Kathy and Stuart also picked up a 3 bedroom bargin on 926sqm with a 30m frontage opposite the Mackay base hospital which is zoned higher density residential.  We're currenlty helping them to develop 4 townhouses on the site.

    Their existing weatherboard dwelling will be relocated to their farm which will be subdivided and we have designed the new townhouses so that they can be built in stages.  We'll be flying up from Sydney in a couple of weeks to have an initial meeting with the Mackay Regional Council.

    We've just finished the concept drawings for them which we've uploaded to their webpage. If you'd like to have a closer look at their development project go to:

    http://www.realestatedevelopmentclub.com/hardie.html

    It would be interesting to see what the zoning is for your new IP property.

    Regards

    Hi Wendy

    Thanks for all the information on Dr Joanna Martin.  We've heard her speak before and she really knows her stuff!

    Shame our schedules didn't work out to catch up with each other last month.  We've both been busy trying to meet our publisher's deadline for our new book on small real estate development, due out May 20th. 
     
    We noticed that you spoke at Jenny's WAIP meeting in Perth so next time you're in Sydney we'd love to have a chat on how it went.

    Hi,

    Have you heard of Destiny?  Its Margaret Lomas's franchise, they have an office in East Perth and Joondalup.  Went along to see them and it looks pretty good to be honest.  Not sure what anyone else thinks?

    Hi CraigLee

    We personally haven't used Destiny Financial Solutions but as far as Margaret Lomas http://margaretlomas.com.au/ is concerned you'll find that she has a very good reputation within the industry.

    We suggest that you contact some of her past clients for more information.  Margaret has a list of them on her website
    http://www.destiny.net.au/dfs/client_results.aspx and she has even included their contact emails for you.

    Regards

    Hi keen2start

    We agree with bespoke that you should check with your local council.  If you decide to visit your local council try and make an appointment with the senior town planner.   Their is no one government website that explains what each local planning authority zoning allows – a 2a zoning in one council may not mean the same in another council so you need to check with your local council.

    Also it's important to check the zoning boundries carefully.  We're currently seeking a DA for a multi-unit development on one of our sites which is zoned RES C however development sites directly opposite us which are of a similiar size are zoned RES B which only allows for duplex development.  RES C in our particular location means we're able to fit more dwellings on our site than a RES B one.  They each have different development restrictions including setbacks, height, parking, FSR, open space etc which are explained in the local authority planning guidelines .

    Regards

    Adrian and Amber Zenere

    I have a property investor trust (PIT) and company trustee from Chan Naylor. I do not recommend them as we are having all sorts of problems with obtaining more finance. Banks do not like hybrid trusts – let me tell you!!! Banks were picky with hybrid trusts before the credit crunch now even pickier.  Ended up getting finance for the 1st invt property using the PIT etc but were limited to 2 lenders at the time, maxof 80% LVR and a higher penlty interest rate/ exit fees etc

    We spent over $3000 to get the PIT and company name and will not be using them going forward, going bank to individual names only for everything for now.  regards, Angela

    Hi Angela

    Your right, banks don't generally like lending to trust structures and you normally pay a higher interest rate to access funds. We personally have had no problems securing funds using our hybrid discretionary trust where our company is the trustee only and where we personally guarantee the loan. We like to keep any investments completely separate to our company.  Finding a property savvy finance broker who understands trust structures helps.  We have just secured funds for a development site through RAMS/Westpac using our trust and it was a very smooth transaction.

    Hi Kev

    Here are a few more tips that may help…

    • Develop the Right Mindset – and always start with the end in mind
    • Invest in your knowledge first – learn as much as you can about Real Estate Investing
    • Avoid "Analysis Paralysis" – eventually you have to Take Action and have a go to get results
    • Find a strategy that's a good fit for you – there can be significant risks involved if you don’t know what you're doing
    • Make sure you enjoy real estate investing  – if you're passionate about what you're doing then you won't mind putting in the time and effort
    • Start small while you're learning – grow as your knowledge and experience grows, starting small can avoid costly mistakes later
    • Have a great team of advisors on board – create a knowledgeable and experienced team of advisors around you
    • Have faith in yourself – believe in yourself and don't stress over the small stuff

    Wishing you much success!
