2017 Millionaire Mega Conference Special
  • Hi Tom,
    You’ve uncovered a heap of good stats there. Good luck with the broker.

    Along the way, you asked this:-

    Over the past 5 years rental growth has been 1.6% per annual, for an 8% growth between 2011 to 2016/2017.
    This seems like reasonable rental growth. What type of growth do you (forum members/investors) factor in for residential…

  • Hi PT18,
    You might get a good idea or two from this discussion :-
    https://www.propertyinvesting.com/a-budget-with-a-few-nasty-jabs/

    Note that the situation evolved over time, and, by May 10th, Steve was pretty much defining what he thought might be workable. One early response has a link that goes to a Quantity Surveyor’s office, and, if…[Read more]

  • An interesting one has been discussed recently – someone asked about the benefits of buying a unit in a retirement village. Lots of thoughts were passed around over this one.

    On the plus side, the returns looked mighty good – initially. Was there to be Cap Growth into the future? Would Banks even lend – this was low priced, but also in low…[Read more]

  • Hey Jaxon and Tom,
    I’m appreciating the discussion here – lots of numbers and shared thoughts to inspire others. So, thanks you two. I’m about to direct others to this thread for their edification. ;)

  • There have been posts in here earlier on Dominique Grubisa – check them out in a Search, or do a Google for more info.

    I haven’t heard her – it would be interesting to hear what you think of it once you have attended, Steven. And yeah Google confirms $6k for the “rescue” course – but as happens often, by attending the seminar there may be a…[Read more]

    Hi Steven,
    There is a lot of truth in what you are saying:-

    The result is before we realize what happened, Rowville went from an unpopular area to an area where housing price shoot over the roof. And now, those who bought in Rowville only 5-6 years ago, they are all laughing.

    Sure, this happens often – you might see a lot of renovations…[Read more]

  • Hi Simon,

    looking for over market rent while they have continued guaranteed rental income?

    By that, I presume you mean that your friend is bound to pay rent in lieu of the broken lease? i.e. they are “in the gun” for rent until it is leased anew to another tenant.

    At first glance, and in my opinion, this wouldn’t pass the “pub test” (or…[Read more]

  • Hi Steven,

    I do somehow get the impression that you make it sound like you have a grudge against new properties or H&L packages.

    I’m not sure I’d call it a grudge, but simply that some properties are better for investors than others. And, as you just saw in my response to Cherry, if you have the skills/knowledge/wherewithal to be able to build…[Read more]

  • Hi Cherry,

    Personally, I prefer new house with big land. :)

    If you are at the stage where you can afford to build them for yourself (and not be taking some solution product from a H&L developer), I agree with you, Cherry.

    Hi Investor,
    If you read all of the words carefully, you will see I was using words like “IF”, “might”, and “could be”.

    That means, this was not reality I was describing, but an example of what “could be”. The underlying lesson was that some areas of Goulburn might have a majorly different vacancy rate than other areas, and that you do need…[Read more]

  • Hi Jaya,
    When buying an existing house, I would always get a building inspector to take a look. Maybe a plumber too, if you have a special concern with plumbing.

    Re the land – I always like older homes that have big land – especially if the Council is about to re-zone. Going from 17.5 to 30 is nearly doubling the number of houses in an…[Read more]

  • Benny replied to the topic Some questions in the forum General Property 1 week, 6 days ago

    Hi Investor,

    for example Goulburn has about 61 properties for rent, shows cash flow positive which is good but with that many properties on rent whats the chance of someone wanting to rent my property? Should we avoid areas like this?

    Good question – I hope the following thoughts might help you:-

    It is not so much the number, but more the…[Read more]

  • Have you been approached by a company wanting to sell you an OTP (Off-The-Plan) property (i.e. it is not built yet, but is soon to be built)? Did they cold-call you? Did they suggest that “The Tenant and the Taxman can make you rich, and help you send your kids to Uni, etc”? And, they likely also asked if you have had your PPOR (your own…[Read more]

  • Hi Jaya,
    That almost sounds like “How long is a piece of rope?”

    If you can share what you are wanting from this house, and any/all constraints, like – is it for investment or “own home”, any particular location, return required, can renovate or not, etc it should allow us to give a more meaningful answer.

    Don’t forget, we don’t know you -…[Read more]

  • By itself it is true, but when coupled with my second point, that is just unsustainable.

    Fair comment. The answers though still lie within that supply/demand curve. Remove demand, and prices will drop. Or wait a few more years and rents/wages will close the gap once more.

    Values don’t grow linearly – they grow more like a staircase in…[Read more]

  • Hi Steven,

    The example you gave relied on a few things:
    1. Organic capital growth which is difficult to come by now days compare to 30 years ago

    Really? What has Sydney been doing the last 3 years, and Melbourne too? Brisbane is likely to be next…. all part of the cycle, but then each cycle is different to the one before.

    2. Rental incomes…
