  • DWolfe replied to the topic Strategies that are working in 2015 Australia in the forum General Property 9 years ago

    Hi all,

    I think there are still some basic strategies that work in today’s market. Buy an unrenovated property that already has positive cash flow then renovate to increase cash flow and add in some capital growth is one that might be a good starting point.

    I don’t know that I’d say a strategy that works now will work for the next 10 or even 5…[Read more]

    Freckle – hope you got your Google on, taking on the Geelong Gal.

    Cotton On owns themselves, Cotton On Body, Cotton On Kids and Typo, Factorie and now Supre.

    Typo especially I think is one to watch for market growth as it offers a unique product.

  • DWolfe replied to the topic Urgent help needed with building 2 T/houses in the forum Help Needed! 10 years, 6 months ago

    Firstly find an architect/Draftsperson or hand holder to help you through this process.

    I recently met the team at Pillar and Post (Christianb and Breece are members of this forum) and the are great at holding a beginners hand through the process of due diligence and working out what will fit on a block.

    The problem is, you haven't told us what…[Read more]

  • DWolfe replied to the topic Property Managers and landlords – do you change locks? in the forum General Property 10 years, 7 months ago

    Hi all,

    Being both a tenant and a landlord, I've never changed the locks as landlord and never had a landlord/PM change the locks for me.

    The exception to this of course is when I'm renovating. I'll change the front door lock, generally coz I'm changing out the whole door anyway. I have had ex-tenants visit during renovations and it's a nice…[Read more]

  • DWolfe replied to the topic If this is your situation, what would you do? in the forum Creative Investing 10 years, 7 months ago

    Hi replytokat,

    Plenty of lovely ladies on the forum are on the investment track with kids in tow (some of the guys too ;)).

    You'll need to think about risk. How much are you prepared to play with, and what happens if that goes pear shaped? Are you happy with just cash flow positive properties or do you see yourself carving out a new niche and…[Read more]

  • DWolfe replied to the topic PPOR in Victoria and RTA in the forum General Property 10 years, 7 months ago

    Hi Propertyboy,

    Swing by your friendly real estate agents office and grab a copy of the little red book given to tenants when they first sign up the lease.

    Are you the tenant or the landlord?

    It is my understanding (please make your own enquiries also) that the landlord does need to give the tenant 60 days notice.

    Here is a link -…[Read more]

  • DWolfe replied to the topic Amendments to the residential zones in Victoria in the forum Value Adding 10 years, 7 months ago

    Hi nnngp,

    How long will govt bureaucracy take? Maybe check out the planning maps on land.vic.gov.au on any blocks you are looking at. I checked one of mine yesterday and it was updated on the 27th June with no changes, so I'm guessing not everything will change, or maybe just in name only…

  • DWolfe replied to the topic RENT ROOM BY ROOM -House conversion to Shared House (Rooming House) in the forum Help Needed! 10 years, 8 months ago

    Hi all,

    So 4 bedrooms, do you think the house can accommodate 6-8 strangers comfortably?

    I'm not a huge fan of boarding houses it seems like one huge headache for no much more return.

    You'd really want to crunch the numbers on this to make sure that going through all the fire rating/council hooey/ insurance issues/ etc is worth that extra…[Read more]

  • DWolfe replied to the topic OTP Contracts in the forum Help Needed! 10 years, 8 months ago

    Hi Spearsy,

    Yep get the contracts reviewed by a solicitor (preferably in the same state, so they know the ins and outs). You should be able to add clauses, get your solicitor to write some for you so they are nice and legal, it is then up to the vendor whether they accept the contract with those clauses.

    Check through the inclusions list very…[Read more]

  • DWolfe replied to the topic Re-develop yourself or use a Specialist? in the forum Value Adding 10 years, 8 months ago

    Hi Anthony,

    You could also talk to the guys at Pillar and Post (formerly brutal art). They are in Melbourne and have been great contributors to this site for a long time. If I remember rightly Ash from Stacey surveying can also hand hold (or recommend someone) to take care of the process of gaining an approval.

    Keep us posted :)

    Hi Nue1,

    I sent you a PM :)

    Thanks Jacqui – I've been renovating for clients now so haven't had time to jump on here for ages!!!

    See how you go with the property manager, you might find thy don't need or have time for the obligation of being your project manager. You might be able to talk one of your tradies into overseeing the renovation for you…[Read more]

  • DWolfe replied to the topic Bad property agents in the forum Opinionated! 10 years, 10 months ago

    I have met some real rubbish ones. I went to an open and basically got told to get out as the property was looking like being sold that weekend (at auction) well duh. That's why you have an auction.

    It's not just agents, had a waitress give me a lecture for 10 mins on why it wasn't her fault she gave my meal to another person and refuse to give…[Read more]
