If you go through one of the big hire-car companies, I have found that their cheapest rates are usually offered to RACV (or equivalent) members, or otherwise Frequent Flyers. All you have to do is give them your member number.
Shop around too. We hired a car for eight days in September and there was a substantial price difference between the…[Read more]
Thanks everyone for all your positivity and stories!!
JoD, I didn’t mean to start this topic, it just *happened* one day when I had had enough!! I had to vent somewhere, and no one else seems to ‘get it’!! So here I came and let loose… I still hear “you’re mad” and I agree, it’s upsetting when you are quite serious about something, however Matt…[Read more]
Thanks so much Geo and Simon!
Simon, you are not raining on my parade, you are helping me get my thinking straight! I did not consider the topic wording much but you are absolutely right. It is not an IP. Hadn’t really considered it one but it is still a dwelling of sorts and I guess that is what made me call it an IP! I have been corrected, and…[Read more]
People are going to say this is rubbish but I promise you I have seen it work many times:
Turn upside down and bang gently on the back of the keyboard so all the ‘stuff’ that falls in there falls back out. Remove all of the keys. Dunk the whole thing in a sink full of water and ‘swish’. Let it dry out thoroughly. Put the keys back. Hey presto!…[Read more]
Welcome to the forum!
We had a discussion on this only a matter of days ago. Take a look at this thread https://www.propertyinvesting.com/forum/topic/13380.html?SearchTerms=bird,dog and then if you are still confused by all means post another question.
On the note of auctions, bjmaca, you don’t have to buy ALL of your furniture there and thus end up with a ‘mish mash’ as Derek put it (!) but you could pick up a few items that fit in nicely with what you have planned. Just because it is cheap or second hand it doesn’t mean it is crap!! [biggrin]
Not sure what the situation is in or near Port Macquarie, but I know in Melbourne that you can pick up great furniture at excellent prices from auction houses. Often they will auction off all of the furniture from a hotel that is being refurbished. That means they may have 100-200 identical items eg. entertainment units at rock bottom prices. With…[Read more]
Welcome to the forum. [biggrin]
You have come to the right place! Spend a few hours on here reading through the different threads. Use the search function to search for any topics you may be particularly interested in. If you have any questions (no matter how basic you may think they are), if you can’t find the answer by all means…[Read more]
If it were not for this site, Steve’s first book (yet to read the second) and the many generous forumites that post here also (they also deserve a ‘thank you’) I would not have any where near the understanding of property that I have now. I still have a long way to go – lots of nitty gritty to learn – but I feel that this is a good place to do a…[Read more]
Ooooooooooohhhh!!! SO MUCH TO SAY!!
But what is that saying “never discuss religion or politics”??
I was discussing the election result with a close friend last week and despite the logic I kept repeating he would not acknowledge it!!! That’s when I thought to myself “ah, I know where that saying comes from now”. I have similar discussions with…[Read more]

Seriously, I know what you mean. I loved backpacking through South East Asia – especially Cambodia and Laos. I plan a trip to India sometime when I can find time.
I actually had India in mind when I wrote that post. Simon, you must MAKE the time to go. It is a truly amazing country. It is a real eye opener…[Read more]
Simon, need more information… are you just a really optimistic kind of guy or do you have a deluxe beachfront pad and a live-in chef?? [biggrin]
To me there are two types of relaxing holidays:
1) The kind of place you go to to sit on the beach and do nothing eg. the Whitsundays, Port Douglas, etc.
2) The kind of place you go to when you want…[Read more]
