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. Would that…[Read more]

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]

It really comes down to wear you are buying. Frankly I would rather buy a townhouse in an inner city area rather than a house in the outer suburbs. There is a mistaken view that a house with land is a better investment. The reality is the land the townhouse sites on in an inner city area is far more valuable…[Read more]
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]
You are a bit slow Jess thats old news. In fact over the last 6 months world wheat stocks have risen to a record high. After many years of sustained Land price growth. I think growth will slow, and steady. Nothing can rapidly increase forever . I think yeilds will steady for a few years before increasing again. If you arent aware com…[Read more]

freckle, another thing you and that economist who sits up there in his distant Ivory tower and work out average incomes is that there is so much work there a lot of people can demand to be paid in cash. No cash no workers. There are people on social security benefits working for cash, counted as unemployed , thats is what makes a great …[Read more]

We've just been approved for a 0.9% discount with Westpac on a loan of over $800000 but the broker is hitting them up for 1% because the LVR is only at 42% – Worth a shot.

The plans to expand the airport are a good sign for Mildura, the surrounding areas such as Merbein and Irymple have had excellent growth in the last year, like 24%. 230k in Bendigo may only buy you an old high maintanaince house with miimal depreciaton plus you will have to pay stamp duty.
