    How would that work out of curiousity? Some colleagues of mine are farmers and after hearing the ROI, unless your a large corporation seeking a steady yet small return or an individual who has had the farmland for decades, it is too pricey to buy in and make profitable.It's more a lifestyle choice rather than a good ROI.

    Doesnt matter how much you save it is what you do with it that counts. I started with none when I was in primary school school ,I got ballons at a show given away for free then walked around and sold them. I bought  something like 10 Pivot shares for  something like $50.00.  I would be wary of the investor club, but you may learn something th…[Read more]

  • crusty replied to the topic What exactly is college lease land? in the forum  Yes  you own the house 12 years, 2 months ago

     Yes  you own the house  but you probably have to pay a lease fee of,   5%  of freehold  unimproved land values and rates(which increase).     I dont think they are a good idea as they onlly give a net yeild of  about 2,  have low LVRs,  about 50% and are difficult to sell.

      Sack the account .         Every-one here seems to be missing the main  point here.  Claming or paying depreciation is very trival, when compared to the massive opportunity costs of not having even a few hundred dollars a year tax refund,  that could have been invested in the early 1990 s.    At that time my few hundred extra dollars I had…[Read more]
