  • Benny replied to the topic Financing an investment property in the forum Finance 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hi Wayne,

    Is this how it works? Also borrowing 100% value, will I also have to pay LMI for the amount over 80%?

    Surely it would depend on whether you went for two separate loans or a cross-securitised loan.  By going for two separate ones, you would eliminate LMI (I would think).  e.g. Borrow deposit/costs against your PPOR.  Take out a se…[Read more]

  • Benny started the topic Bye bye cash !! I hope not…. in the forum Opinionated! 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Wow, I never I thought I’d see the day that cash disappeared from our lives.  But if Armaguard’s latest troubles are anything to go by, it’s coming, and more quickly than expected.  How scary is that?

    Like, how confident are you that, when you need it, you can transact without cash as a backup?  How many times in the last year have banking sy…[Read more]

  • Benny replied to the topic Brisbane Investing in the forum Help Needed! 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi BJ,

    I’m from the South side of Brisbane (Logan actually) so I would say don’t go 40 mins or you’ll be into greenfield estates (i.e. all new and expensive – e.g. Yarrabilba, Coomera).  I think your choices mentioned are nearer 25 – 30 mins and are older burbs with a lot of possibilities for renos and/or positive gearing.  Other similar o…[Read more]

  • Benny started the topic Inflation – have I got this right? in the forum Forum Frolic 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    I hear the news, etc and it all looks like inflation is being beaten down by the RBA’s rash moves (my opinion) over the last 12 months.  Like, I know our rates were on a super-low “emergency setting” so for sure, they needed to rise off 0.1%.  No argument from me on that one.   What I did think back then, was that, if it was such an emergency, the…[Read more]

  • Benny replied to the topic Money Magnet podcasts in the forum Forum Frolic 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    TIme for a bump (drawing your attention to the previous post).

    With Christmas coming up, what better gift could we give than a book that reveals the mysteries of Money, how to make it “work” for you, and how to use it in the best ways to enrich our lives, and those of others too?

    On a par with “The Millionaire Next Door” (a favourite of mine),…[Read more]

  • Benny replied to the topic How does an increase in the RBA's cash rate help? in the forum General Property 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Well, here we are another month or two down the track.  Yep, the Cash Rate went up again on Melbourne Cup day.  Needed?  Not in my book (as you probably know already….) but with Govt continuing to spend up large while all mortgage holders get hammered, the “basket of goods” showed inflation was “still not coming down quickly enough!”   Spar…[Read more]

  • Benny replied to the topic Distribute Income from Trusts to minors? in the forum Legal & Accounting 3 months ago

    Hi dd81,

    First off, I am NOT any kind of accredited adviser, so I simply present a few ideas and opinions that may help you reach a conclusion or two.  Of course, anything I mention should be confirmed via your own accountant or other adviser.

    You look to be in really good shape, and have some important choices to make.   Here are a few th…[Read more]

  • Benny replied to the topic Depreciation inside a Family Trust in the forum Legal & Accounting 3 months, 3 weeks ago

    Hi NL888,

    Good to see that Steve has replied already.  One other thing that is rarely mentioned (I first heard it from Steve MANY years back) is that Depreciation deductions are added back on sale so that you end up paying for those earlier deductions anyway (perhaps via CGT??)  I am not sure on that, but it could also be a good reason to NOT c…[Read more]

  • Benny replied to the topic Referendums – interesting, in light of the "Voice" proposition…. in the forum Opinionated! 4 months, 1 week ago

    If you’ll pardon my levity, the result came as “No” surprise !!!   Many of the Yes protagonists are blaming it on the No voters (saying they are racist and other such nonsense).   In fact, the Referundum contained so little detail as to be almost a blank cheque that our PM wanted us to sign.  And now he is surprised we said no?  Says a lot about…[Read more]

    Hi Lukey,

      Is it just me or is property going to become literally unaffordable to future generations?

    It’s a good question.  I think it is a perennial question too.  I recall hearing similar questions for the last decades that I have been aware of.  Back in the day, 3 years of a wage would buy the average house (1950’s and 60’s).  Things chan…[Read more]

  • Sad to say, not a lot has changed in the last three months – except that “Extinction Rebellion” protagonists appear to have gone to ground (thank heaven for that!!).    Solar panels continue to be added to the grid.   The more that are added, the more sensitive the grid becomes.
