  • crashy replied to the topic family need help in the forum General Property 15 years ago

    you may not agree with my approach (and tough biccies if thats the case) but the fact is, what I have said to spudway is what he needs to hear, and will help him in the long run.It's easy to lack foresight & assume any criticism is destructive. It's easy to cry foul when someone doesnt blindly pat someone else on the back.It's easy to assume the…[Read more]

  • crashy replied to the topic family need help in the forum General Property 15 years ago

    spudway,firstly, at no time did I ever comment on the number of kids you have. You have me confused with someone else. While I agree with Marc, my objections to this thread are as follows:1. the "family needs help" title. 2. someone firing insults at me non stop because I raise questions3. someone with appalling spelling & grammar referring to me…[Read more]

  • crashy replied to the topic RECEIVED 60K – INVEST IN IP OR PUT TOWARDS PPOR ? in the forum Help Needed! 15 years ago

    just to hammer home the tax angle:scenario 1 – $60k earning 6% pays $3,600 p.a, or $2,088 after tax (assuming 42% tax)scenario 2 – $60k paid off PPOR saves $3,600 p.a after taxwould you rather be $2088 better off or $3600?

  • crashy replied to the topic family need help in the forum when I saw the title of this 15 years ago

    when I saw the title of this thread I thought:" oh wow, here's another family caught in the mortgage belt struggling. The poor buggers have probably already sold off everything they own to keep up with the mortgage, but hey, at least they are not too proud to say they need help"Instead, I find someone who isnt struggling at all, a family with 3…[Read more]

    Off the topic a bit but am intrigued WHY you no longer own property?

    because blind freddy could see the slump coming, and as a renovator you need a quick selling, fast rising market where buyers are prepared to pay a premium for renovated house. none of those 3 conditions exist, so its too risky to continue.

  • crashy replied to the topic Brissie Bargains for Llong Term Growth in the forum General Property 15 years ago

    hi Michael

    disagree with stalled the last 2 years, I sold one in March 08 (peak was Jan/Feb 08) and another in Aug 08.

    forgot to addon my reno's I do EVERYTHING. Im a sparky so the most dangerous job is safe for me to do, but others definately should not.

    wow, that needs gutting….by that I mean all walls taken back to studs………looks like asbestos too so it will cost a fortune. also could be foundation issues looking at the cracks…………money pit!I would look for something else with good bones that is dated.

  • crashy replied to the topic Financial Advisors… in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 3 months ago

    firstly, understand the difference between an advisor and a planner. A planner sets long term goals and gives you a plan to reach them. An advisor can do this also, but they are the best people to ask about individual deals.If you ask a bank or someone like AMP for help, you are likely to get a planner who only knows how to sell that companies…[Read more]

    you can get away with 10-15mm below, assuming there is carpet or tile. otherwise its just not legal. 4 yrs on you have no hope. I believe you had 12 months to act, but even if you did its unlikely to have been worth it.you can always do as I did, do your building work & dont tell council……or, apply for building permit & do the work, but dont…[Read more]
