  • Ems started the topic Finance for motel acquisition in the forum Commercial Property 7 years, 8 months ago

    Just looking for some guidance on how to secure finance for a leasehold motel purchase. What kind of LVR could one get if going leasehold? Is vendor finance ever available in this type of purchase?

  • Thanks all for a great read!

    We purchased a house in South Gladstone last March and looking to put 4 3 bed townhouses on the block. Given the construction is likely to ramp up this year what kind of rents do you think I could achieve either furnished or unfurnished if they were finished the end of this year. Still undecided on whether to sell…[Read more]

    Being a massive football (sorry Soccer fan) I would travel the UK and Europe following my beloved Manchester United! Now that would be great. :-)

  • Ems replied to the topic Renovation – Rendering and Landscaping in the forum No Subject 16 years, 8 months ago

    Hi Guys,

    I’m in the same position. We need to render our house in a few months. Ours is a two storey 32sq house. I have also been given different prices and we need to decide if its best to get someone professional to do it or try it ourselves. We don’t want to stuff the exterior up so am leaning towards going the professional way.

    Cheers…[Read more]

  • Ems replied to the topic IO & Offset or P&I? in the forum Help Needed! 16 years, 8 months ago

    Hi Peachy,

    I agree totally and don’t know fully why it would be best to get an IO & Offset. They do seem like the same thing – $100 interest and $100 off the principal (P&I repayment) as opposed to $100 interest and $100 into the offset account (I only repayment) it would still calculate the same interest charges for that day/period in either…[Read more]

  • Ems replied to the topic IO & Offset or P&I? in the forum Help Needed! 16 years, 8 months ago

    So most of you are saying IO & Offset.

    We are in the same boat but was told to take out an P&I too by our broker. We intend to live in it and then rent it out in a years time when we go back to the UK.

    Would a IO & Offset be better for us do you guys think and what are the advantages of having an IO & Offset compared to the P&I? Is there a tax…[Read more]

    Thanks for your replies Elka and Marc.

    Marc – please don’t say anything about the cricket – I have enough taunts each day when I go home to my hubby [biggrin]

    Yes we will be living in the property until we go back to the UK. It’s going to take around 6 months to build and then we plan to live in it for 6 months in order to get the FHOG and then…[Read more]
