  • baloo replied to the topic Financial planners in Sydney? in the forum General Property 19 years, 5 months ago

    While investron does have some merit to his answer, there some advisors that deal with property too.

    Navra Financial Services include property in their advise. They are fairly well respected advisors in the IP arena.

  • baloo replied to the topic House prices rising? in the forum No Subject 19 years, 5 months ago

    I see a continuation of falling prices in most major cities and large regionals. Of course some pockets will defy the trend but you’ve got to do a fair bit of research to find those places.

    It’s always in the best interests of those in the Real Estate industry to claim prices are rising. Don’t believe everything you read.

  • baloo replied to the topic De-facto relationship property agreements in the forum General Property 19 years, 5 months ago

    I spoke to a lawyer about a similiar situation. These agreements are fairly straight foward up until the point that children are involved. Once there are children, these agreements aren’t worth the paper they are written on.

    Nick at Strategic Wealth Management is one of the better ones around IMHO.

  • baloo replied to the topic Impending Interest Rate Rises? in the forum No Subject 19 years, 6 months ago

    After the massive runup in CG we’ve seen and with rents, if anything, falling backwards, I struggle to see how the housing market could pick up again when the yields for the majority of properties will be about 3% on average.

    Unless there is a pretty strong reason for big CG, property just doesn’t seem like a wise and very financially rewarding…[Read more]

  • baloo replied to the topic Has anyone had to file for ‘bullying’ at work? in the forum Opinionated! 19 years, 6 months ago

    If this abuse is constant and getting worse after you called in the Union, then I would use a dictaphone and let her know everytime you hit the Record Button.

    She’ll either incriminate herself even though she was forewarned, or she’ll back off and leave you alone.

  • baloo replied to the topic Effect of PO loans in the forum Finance 19 years, 6 months ago

    I think it’s too early to tell.

    I haven’t heard of anyone receiving finance for these loans yet. Best give it some time in the marketplace to see how viable they really are.

  • baloo replied to the topic tsunami disaster in the forum Opinionated! 19 years, 6 months ago

    At the end of the day, if someone like Schumacher or Dick Smith forces the hand of another mega-billionaire to reach into their pockets to save face, then I think it’s brilliant.

    While the reason for donating might be a bit suspect, at the end of the day more money is being raised for this disaster, which is what counts.

  • baloo replied to the topic tsunami disaster in the forum Opinionated! 19 years, 6 months ago

    Would it be good ? Yes, most certainly.

    But I doubt it will make too much of a difference as history shows that once a disaster is no longer news worthy, people tend to forget.

    Out of site, out of mind.

    This is a truly shocking disaster that has killed close to 150,000 people with the potential for more. But as for it being the most deserving cause ‘ever’ I think is a bit too simplistic. AIDS/HIV has killed 22,000,000. Malaria over 40,000,000.…[Read more]

    Exactly, it’s a personal choice, so let people have the option to view them or not.

    I personally prefer not to be spammed in a forum, but each to their own.

  • baloo replied to the topic Are Personal Messages Useful? in the forum Opinionated! 19 years, 6 months ago

    Steve,

    Could the forum software be modified so that people could switch off viewing other people’s signatures/sign offs ? It’s fairly easy to disable the images using an add blocker, but the colourful and large text advertisments detract from the flow of a thread.

  • baloo replied to the topic Did you know… in the forum Finance 19 years, 7 months ago

    actually it was Ray Croc, the founder of McDonalds, who said he was in the real estate business. The burgers were just something to do with the land.

  • baloo replied to the topic Philip Island in the forum General Property 19 years, 7 months ago

    I know the Island quite well from my time of surfing down at Smith Beach all those years ago. I’m shocked at the prices the Island is now commanding while at the same time kicking myself for not realising that one of my favorite spots was going to rocket. Corinella is another place along the Bass that has exploded recently.

    But while I think…[Read more]

  • baloo replied to the topic Cold Spot in the forum General Property 19 years, 7 months ago

    Do these caves have parking spots included or can I buy them seperately ? The Bearina’s have to be parked somewhere.

  • baloo replied to the topic Property prices set to fall until 2007? in the forum No Subject 19 years, 7 months ago

    I guess we have different ideas on what constitutes a professional investor.

  • baloo replied to the topic WARNING TO ALL PROPERTY INVESTORS!!!! in the forum General Property 19 years, 7 months ago

    Did you fly to NZ to see the property before you bought it ? Have you met the PM face to Face ? Or was it all done over the phone/email ?

  • baloo replied to the topic Is Australia a racist country? in the forum Opinionated! 19 years, 8 months ago

    Marc, congratulations on your relatives living in Japan, I hope they enjoy it there as much as I did. I wonder if they know my Japanese wife, my parents in law, siblings in law and multitude of other friends we have there.

    I have a friend who decided to become a Japanese citizen and is now a Japanese passport holder. Your presumption that he was…[Read more]

    There is also replacement cost. No point selling your 20yo PPOR if all you can afford is something you perceive to be of lesser value.
