Thanks for the advice Corey
I am the middle option (fixed hourly rate with no guaranteed hours, paid to a TFN as an employee NOT an ABN).
I am basically a freelancer. Can your company help me out in this situation, if so what do i need to provide as a starting point.
Currently have a loan with St George bank for $375k on a 2 bed unit in Carlton-NSW and LOC for $73k.
I want to either upgrade to a house or sell up and invest elsewhere. Currently I am working on a contract/freelance basis and paid by a recruitment agency (Hays). When i approach the bank they want to see PAYG payslips from the…[Read more]
Currently find myself in the situation where i have access to $100k in credit and cash, but am unable to obtain a new loan due to me working as a contractor/freelancer (get paid weekly PAYG by Hays recruitment).
Have thought about buying a cheapie house in the country, maybe some land in a rising area, sub leasing, buy off the plan (not the…[Read more]
The Secrets out, shameless operator with absolutely no respect for hard working people who have given away their hard earned cash so that someone can tell them a bunch of
investing stories, whereby they blame the banks, brokers, builders, council, certifier, anyone but themselves.
Just to be clear when i say they, I mean HIM, most of his staff…[Read more]
Just an update to my tenant problem. Called an agent that I know and respect last week and got the ball rolling on getting a PM in place
for my IP.
EVERYONE gave me the same advice and have finally taken the appropriate steps, should get the paper work through by next week. Detaching myself from
the situation as best i can! never…[Read more]
Appreciate the responses. Have been thinking of a PM for a while now, as usual there is always something getting in the way (me).
I just found out they have been very sick and have been unable to work (so I've been told). Previously they paid in 4 week blocks to get back to square, but all to in-frequent and late.
Don't have LL insurance…[Read more]
bricman replied to the topic Melton, Brookfield is it a good long term area in Melbourne? in the forum Help Needed! 5 years, 3 months ago
Bought an IP in Melton South in 2008 for $200k, now worth $260 so say by the REA. The people who made money were the ones who bought at around $160k and sold quickly for around $220k a couple of years later. Agree it is not a worthwhile investment, will be selling early next year when my loan gets off fixed rate (another mistake i made).
Karkloof, sounds like you didn't get the finance they were offering!
As people will see i posted back in 2012 about this company. I had a terrible time dealing with them, well just the director really. Have heard that the media is getting interested in this companies activities again, and so they should. Like karkloof i know of agents and even…[Read more]

Not sure if I have ever seen so many comments for a subject in such a short space of time. If this so called guru or proclaimed investor is not what he makes out to be then he deserve a blast from everyone on the forum, more to the point we should name and shame all these spruikers (not saying this guy def is) and create a comprehensive list of…[Read more]

Depends on where you go, if you go to London (central) it is full of Ozzies!!Lifestyle here in OZ is unquestionably better, no doubt about it.
