Dinah replied to the topic Where can I buy flat pack kitchen ? (like ikea but better) in the forum Value Adding 14 years, 2 months ago
I use Bunning flatpak kitchens in my renos but i never get their benchtops. I use a local hardware store so I have the, colour/style, and the right bench lengths with no joins that I want. The price is comparable to Bunnings benches with no wastage. They will also cut the sink and cooktop holes if needed for a small charge. Perhaps you have th…[Read more]
look for mining towns, mine development on the horizon etc and you will find +ve cf properties. ie buy $230ish and rent $400ish. Also, have a look at Katherine, NT. These are the only types of places where the 11 second rule might apply now as the market has changed so much since the book first came out.
For more UTD and relevant info have a read…[Read more]
I’m with Mortgage Hunter, and perhaps you have chosen an inappropriate title for you post “RE vs Shares”.
Firstly I am a RE investor via BRS or BRSS. Secondly I have long term shares (and I thoroughly recommend Invest4Profit for recommendations).
Thirdly I trade CFD’s short to medium term.
That seems to cover it and they all compliment each…[Read more]
I take it your first property is a buy/rent? If this is the case then why not let the rent pay the mortgage and don’t pay any extra off? As for purchasing another property with your new position – I would’t think any financial institution would have a problem lending you more money from the details you have given.
All the best
Amanda has given me some wonderful pointers on my first reno and I have coupled this with advice from the real estate agents that I would consider good ones to sell through.
I had them (I only had a short list of 2 potential agents who I’d sell through) look through my property before I even started on it and asked them for their…[Read more]

My Mum’s dentist is Chinese and his name is Dr Chu (Chew)!!
I actually know a Mike Hunt (but he uses his middle name!!!hehehe)
But the classic has to be an employee of my husband’s….this is a true story for those into mystery or porn….
He was introduced to me as Sherlock Holmes. I asked if that was his real…[Read more]
If I couldn’t make it cash flow positive by some means then I’d sell it.
I nearly did that just recently but ended up doing some improvements and renegotiated the rent so now there’s money left over each month instead of me forking out each month. Plus I will recoup the reno outlay within 1 year.
My view is that anything that…[Read more]
Forgot to add, I agree with Brahms….no invoice, no payment.
You have requested it once. Request it again politely with a timeline attached to it so you don’t get one out of the blue in 6 mths time.
For the best answer to this question, I’d ask your accountant but I don’t believe you need an “official” tax invoice on a company letterhead, nor even an abn.
I have a fellow who does work for me, who is not abn registered, and he submits a hand written invoice with his name as the biller, description of work carried out, copies of…[Read more]
I forgot to mention a little agency not on the list provided by Jaffasoft.
Natasha (the owner) of North Bundaberg Real Estate. They have some absolute gems come up from time to time and she is 100% up front in everything she does. Her ethics are unquestionable in my experience.(I’m talking about everything she does outside of real estate…[Read more]
from my travels in Bundaberg…..If you want “no bull” get onto Garry Parr at Ascot Real Estate. I have found him to be invaluable and totally receptive to my requirements, while still honouring his vendors diligently.
Also, Kerri-Anne Rae at Remax, Gary Martin at Ray White, Geoff Dixon at Century 21, Rebecca (can’t remember her surname) at L J…[Read more]
Unfortunately, people like that do exist.
Have you approached your council and told the planner exactly what has transpired between you and your neighbour? I think you should. If you are up front with your council then I think that will be a good thing.
Perhaps also, if the only thing that made you say no to your neighbour in the first place was…[Read more]
I’ve been on the whole Forum for ages and it is still as good tho I have definitely noticed a slow down over this Xmas/NY period.
There is a ship-load of info to give and gain from the non-restricted forums so I still don’t “get” what the fuss is over.
I don’t believe there is a “them and us” thing happening.
Just forge ahead…[Read more]
Just to take jimmy007’s suggested clause one step further if you ever use it…..
“subject to finance acceptable to the purchaser”…..the reason being that a few years ago I put the more vague form of the clause in a contract and to my horror the vendor and the RE agent started bombarding me with finance leads in an attempt to obtain…[Read more]
I am in a regional area but the two properties I have purchased locally in the last 2 years I have put only a $5k deposit down and there was no problem. I don’t know whether it was due to the fact that I offered quick settlement in both cases.
Bundaberg has been my home since Easter 1989. I own one rental property and just bought a renovation project here.
The market has come back a bit over the last 3-4 months and I would call it stagnant right at the moment.
