  • callmeles replied to the topic It's almost June (what have you achieved) in the forum Help Needed! 9 years, 12 months ago

    Hi Guys
    Have been stuck in neutral so far this year.
    Looked at the RE mkt a few times and found a deal almost 40% under market in Melbourne.
    Badly needs a reno – BUT the deals are out there, just keep looking and crunching the numbers.
    Q. JP, so when is Man U going to re-emerge.
    My year to date has been as flat as our team. DOH

    Dear Homemade, JacM and Jalugera

    I've done a few in Norlane as well.
    TLC renovation on existing 3BR home and subdivision.
    Selling the land to a builder via architect/draftee contacts. (Cuts out RE agent commission/advertising)

    It is a very low entry price and minimises risk of loss.
    Of course it also minimises the amount of your return.

    Hi Sebastian

    Welcome aboard.
    There are no short cuts in this game.
    I call it a game cause I loved playing Monopoly and inevitably won at it.
    The property game is like Monopoly excepts that there is a lot more at stake.
    There are no Chance cards, you've got to make them up or take them when they present themselves.

  • callmeles replied to the topic Methologies, tools, tips, advisers… in the forum Help Needed! 11 years, 1 month ago

    Hi EJay

    I would suggest that you need to get better educated.
    There are sharks out there willing to give you plenty of advice & pocket a commission for the privilege.
    You get to take all of the potential risk on the biggest investment outlay of your life.
    AND the product may not be the best for your personal situation.
    You need to obtain the…[Read more]

  • callmeles replied to the topic How to find money for projects? in the forum Creative Investing 11 years, 2 months ago

    Hi Marty,

    Freckle is right, you appear to be rushing things a little bit.
    Ensure that you/your project manager have the capacity to manage these deals in a timely manner.
    If you fail to deliver on promises/proposals made to your JV partners, you'll burn the relationship for future.
    I have travelled down this road, and have still yet to meet a…[Read more]

  • callmeles replied to the topic Assets but no servicability, how to get a loan? in the forum Help Needed! 11 years, 3 months ago

    Hi Madmax

    One other option not mentioned is to approach some well heeled friends and cut them in for a portion of the action or agree up front that they get an above bank return say 8-10% p.a. or a cut of the profits.
    This financing has worked a gem for me on the past five purchases.

  • callmeles replied to the topic Is Robert Kiyosaki’s richdad coaching good? in the forum Help Needed! 11 years, 3 months ago

  • callmeles replied to the topic Landlord Insurance – Expensive and Never Used? Ideas in the forum Help Needed! 11 years, 3 months ago

    Hi Guys,

    Yeah landlord insurance is a cost that you just have to bare.
    And if you are really unlucky you don't ever get to lodge an insurance claim. DOH
    Now we must remember that insurance is tax deductible which is one plus.

    One big claim on one property and you get to recoup all of your previous premiums, plus some.
    Good luck if you can obtain…[Read more]

  • callmeles replied to the topic * When did you last move house ? * in the forum Forum Frolic 11 years, 3 months ago

    Moved six years ago.
    Chucked nothing out.
    Maybe that's why I have never been able to park my car in my spot of the double garage.
    Half my stuff is also distributed in the garages and garden sheds of my brother & parents.
    In addition, I have a heap of stuff in a garage at a renovation I'm working on which I move from reno to reno.
    You just never…[Read more]

    Hi Mark

    I'm with moxi10 on this one. Any low cost improvements that you can do on your PPOR will add real value and you and your family get to benefit immediately from the small improvements that you have made.  Renovating properties most weekends, the last thing that I want to do is to work on my own home.  However, she who must be obeyed…[Read more]

    Hi Boshie,

    Apparently you can rent out your PPoR for up to 6 years without being exposed to capital gain for that period.
    Provided you havn't bought and lived at another house which you nominate as your PPoR.

  • callmeles replied to the topic Making multiple offers for houses at the same time! in the forum I have made multiple offers, 11 years, 4 months ago

    I have made multiple offers, and then wait to see how many (if any get an acceptance).
    Remember nothing is legally binding until you sign the contract.
    So stall if you have to, until you get a response to all of the offers that you have out there.
    You might get a couple of R E agents offside, big deal they're not the ones that have to service a 30…[Read more]
