    Very interesting topic Cappy, I’ve recently been looking at buying a couple of properties in America, not sure exactly where to look, but it certainly makes more sense than investing in Australia. I see what you are trying to do, but you can’t leave out some of the expenses. For example you have NO tax in Florida whereas…[Read more]

    Thanks for the input guys, do you have ip’s in the USA at the moment? If I was to decide to invest in USA next year do you think there would be any value in opening my USA bank accounts now and making regular deposits (genuine savings) to try and establish some kind of a credit history?

  • cappy88 replied to the topic AUS vs USA in the forum General Property 12 years, 11 months ago

    Ok if the US property has the same capital growth as AUS property it will have 52,500 extra, still leaving the aus property a clear winner. But then you could also argue that AUS would have better figures if you took into account negative gearing tax benefits and profits from rent when it would eventually become +cf.

    I’m happy to be proven wrong,…[Read more]

  • Thanks very much for that insight Jay, I will be taking your post into account when it comes time to decide where my hard earned will be invested!

    Judith, you said you attended the Thomas Senatore’s Tax Lien and Deed training, would you recommend this? There seems to be a few online pakages for sale which arnt too expensive…

    Hey Aaron

    Im interested to how you are living over there, does the income from your investments pay you, or are you living off your savings?
    Do you rent? own a car? How do you find these expenses compare with just flying to the us for a short period.

    What do you think are the major advantages of been on the ground living in the us vs’ flying in…[Read more]

  • Have been reading quite a bit into liens lately, sounds like with a little due diligence you can pick up investments with a good rate of return.

    Why have you guys chosen to invest in liens rather than US property itself (or aus property for that matter)? Do you think the potential profits that can be made are better then investing in US property?…[Read more]

  • cappy88 replied to the topic Advice – buidling costs Brisbane Floods in the forum It’s generally pretty hard 13 years, 1 month ago

    It’s generally pretty hard to get a hold of trades people after this sort of a thing. But if you were to use a bigger company specializing in new homes rather than a builder out of the yelliw pages. I don’t imagine it would have too much effect. As they won’t get involved in repair work and have there own trades.

  • cappy88 replied to the topic sub floor to lay click clack wood floor in the forum Value Adding 13 years, 1 month ago

    I’m a carpenter. Seems a shame to cover up those sleepers they would look great with a bit of a sand and polish. How big are the gaps? With what your wanting to do I would get cement sheet tile underlay, but screw it down instead of nailing (will eliminate all movement and squeaking caused by uneven floor.) then as suggested get a self leveling…[Read more]

    Thanks everyone for the advice I think I’ll be holding onto the property with an offset account.
    And I also have an undeclared boarder living with me currently and have done minor renos (been a carpenter helps :) ) as Johanne and a couple others have sujested.
