Wll I would sell it if I could figure out that selling and putting the money into my current PPOR will be better than the value increase over the next few years from my IP? Not sure how to make this calculation and what I need to include? Any suggestions on how to figure out these scenarios? P.S at the moment the rent covers the IP loan of $194K…[Read more]

The reason I may need to refinance is that we are currently doing up an IP that we would like to sell in the next 12-24 months. We would like to use the profits from that to pay down the new PPOR we just bought. That will mean a refinance right? does this incure Defereed establishment feed or only if you pay out the loan in full. I also want to be…[Read more]
My first impression would be to rent your own house out while you move into the other one to do renovations. Also I have just done the exact same thing and have come to a great realisation.
We spent 6 months renovating it from scratch. And I mean we did everthing ourselves from the tiling to the pastering. painting etc…
I would strongly advise…[Read more]
I have been a bit disheartened at the forum lately as I see so so so many posts that say 90+ people read but no-one replies to. I personally have a habit of trying to help as much and as many people as I can in return for some advice to my own questions and queries…[inlove]

My husband is on a very average wage and we would like to have kids. I am havng anxiety issues with wanting to have achild and wondering how to do this…[Read more]
Why does your IP purchase need to be $400K, (unless you have already found this good deal)? What about buying one for a little less but just as good a deal on paper ie: yield and growth potential?????etc….Then you can have your cake and eat it too…
P.S I know I am in the sam situation.. Do I rent or buy…. Personally we will be buying and…[Read more]
Is there any way that we can have the property and the loan in mine and husband name but use parents $250 equity as deposit???like a guarantor ? Even though their house is not sold yet?[inlove]
Just out of interest, where about is this place? I looked at purchasing one like it a few months ago now but my plumber said that as a 4 bedder a laundry is vital and not to loose that aspect……
He also quoted about $200-2500+ costs for plumbing to put applicances in for a brand new bathroom… and that was at mates rates….
If you have $7000 t pay of PCM, and only half of it $3500 in rental incomce…. how are you paying for the difference ($3500 at least including expenses) on only $50K?????
Sorry this is not a pick but I’m just curious!!! [inlove]

Do I need full approval or only pre-approval to go to Auction???
Also, it looks like we may need to go over 80% LVR maybee 95%… but if we are successful at purchase and we can improve the property we could then refinance at 80%….My questions is-at over 80% I will incur LMi…. that gets charged at the begginning of…[Read more]
