I am with you. Watch the US Economy very closely. I trade the futures market and the exapnation the the last 2 years has been huge. China and India are on the move. The CRB (commodity)Index is at nominal all time high, passing the 1981 high. As everybody may have heard on the news gold is testing new highs. The nominal high in…[Read more]
Over the past two days I have read in the newspapers both sides of the argument.

You have some good starting questions and have you considered contracting a Buyers Agent? You still have to do your home on the market. Any great investors knows their market, part of this over a period of time, unavoidable I’m afraid.

You are in control of your destiny. Be aware of your limited beliefs. You first need to start effective communication with yourself. Life is about letting go. A life coach is a good start, but ask if they have been trained in NLP (neuro-linguistical programming).

I Know of two. Sean Whelin of McKenie Coultas has done a fantastic job on my trusts in the past or Ray Tonellato of Dean Neberry & Partners (8267 4777). Ray is good with property and works with other developers.
It is always the right time for any investment vehicle. Change brings opportunity. You only need to change your perception.
