Hi Terry & Others,
The March edition of Netguide has a programme on the disc called “3D Home Architect”. It is free and is a superb programme, easy to operate and seems to have everything one needs.
You have probably got a lot of info to go through already but maybe this might help, or at least reinforce what others have written.
I am talking about the “obtaining advice” part of your education.
You do need to have a good accountant in tow and of the type stated before, particularly by Crusher. He is right.
The other is to have a…[Read more]
Gosh, MKC, I am surprised! After reading your postings, over the past few months, I took it that you had been into PI’s for a while and were reasonably experienced.
You have had many good pieces of advice given here already and hopely I can build on that. I still do not regard myself as seasoned, or any sort of expert, but we have done a bit.
Been away a little while and haven’t been able to log in. Just read this posting tonight. I haven’t got past the first few posts. Adam’s is a very, very good one even if you have been “in the game” for a while. Bit like a ‘refresher’.
But our dear Mr Dazzling. While most of your posts are good to read too, in this one you seem to suffer from a…[Read more]
Hi Stargazer, As I wrote, I know who the patsy’s are but we are still “getting taken”, as you wrote. And it is possible to change it, although not very probable. The hard part is not changing it but rather getting enough of the people to step up and demand it be changed.
And JustAllen, you hit the nail on the head!! Your statement ties in with a…[Read more]
I bought my first property back in the late 80’s and when I was still single. It was my PPOR and, back then, I had not even thought of PI let alone read anything about it. Also, I happened to buy my home only a few months before the interest rate skyrocketed up to 17 – 18% or more!!! I cannot remember what the cause was, or even if I heard what it…[Read more]
First, thanks for the opportunity to be able to offer feedback/suggestions etc for the newsletter.
I would like to “second the motion” made by Kimkirk with regard to Asset Protection. It is not much good if we learn all the ‘ins and outs’ of property investing, working hard at it and building up a sizeable portfolio only to have it taken…[Read more]
Another idea is to get quotes/estimates from other PM’s around the area and compare. Colate this info with the things that others, like Dazzling, Derek & The Crest, have put forward and go from there.
Cheers & good luck,
Hi Dr. X,
Sorry, I don’t have a solution for you but merely to offer you my moral support. I have just read this string, from your 1st post to the last, and have two main things to say to you. 1. I totally empathise with you as I am in an extremely similar situation as you, sort of, it is just the reason it stems from is different and 2. You ended…[Read more]
To Chris Raynal,
Just a quick reply, due to the time.
Thank you very much for the info. You have been very helpful. I most certainly have your details written down. It won’t be for a couple of months before I decide what to do. I have a couple of things, or three, to tidy up before I can take any action one way or the other.
You are so right, with your comment about maybe needing passive income if a crisis comes along!
Exactly what has happened to me. Myself, I suffered a serious back injury at work and have out of work and unemployable since ’95. My wife wasn’t working at the time due to us having kids but just as she was about to go back to work her…[Read more]
And thank you, in return, for the compliment Mkc. I wouldn’t regard myself as the “sharpest pin in the pack” but I think that the seminar, that I mentioned I attended, opened my investors eye(s).
And Jeff’s moral is pretty well on the mark too. This is where the ‘investors eye’ comes in to play as there are several ways to make profit from a…[Read more]
Man oh man, have I had my head in the sand![blush2]
But then again, I have been “totally out of it” since the passing away of my wife just over 12 months ago.
But I’ll show my ignorance here. Please be kind to me?
But how long has Japan been open to foreign investors? I thought it was still forbidden for non Japanese nationals to own Japanese…[Read more]
Hi Belindac, Just writing to let you know that people do read the posts.
But sorry, I haven’t even learned how to make, or even looked at, a blogg yet. But I will be interested to see what sort of replies you get. I will keep track.
Good luck with your enterprise. Hope it goes well for you.
Congrats MKC. Well done. We have done similar, but not such a great extent as yours. Purchased 3 properties, over 12 mnths, about 3 years ago and now all are worth double or a little more.
Reminds me of a maxim I heard during an investment seminar I attended a few years ago, which is “Look for the Worst house in the Best street.” Not hard & fast…[Read more]
Thanks Chris. They sound pretty good reasons. What’s the market like at the moment? And if and when I decide to do something, would you like another client?[biggrin] Silly question, hey.
But seriously, I have read several favourable comments about you and company and would need someone, such as yourself, if I do go ahead.
Howdy Folks. Hope you don’t mind if I butt in? I have read through all of your posts here and found them very interesting.
If I may ask you all a question. Is the NZ property market worth looking in to at present, especially from the position of being an Aussie resident? Of particular interest would be any extra benefits, not enjoyed here in Oz,…[Read more]
Howdy People, I am on Russell Island, Qld. About 40km by crow SE of Bris., about 4km off coast at Redland Bay Qld. Am soon to move back to Ararat, Vic due to crisis – my beautiful wife passed away and I have 4 young kids to care for and no family up here.
If anyone interested, I have a top business and a house for sale. The business does have…[Read more]
Yep, the english language can be cruel, and sometimes people too, but it is also very funny at times.
Don’t know if I may claim “the title” but here are one or two I came across during my working life. For the first 10 years from school, I worked in one bank and one of my sisters in another.
For a couple of years I worked in Warragul, Vic., where…[Read more]
