  • As with most areas in QLD Marsden has had capital growth in the last 2 years. The median price for the Marsden area is around the 196k mark and rental returns should be in the 200+ range depending on the type and size of the house.

  • Hi Joner,
    I don’t think it was a waste of my time going as i did pick up some very good info, even though as i said the advertising for the course was a little misleading regarding the renovating content. As to whether i think it was worth the $200 , if i utilise the info and knowledge gained i would say yes it was worth it,and maybe much more,…[Read more]

  • Hi Joner,
    I recently attended Denise Allen’s renovation course at Noosa. Jack Weavers plays a very large part during the course of the day. It was a full day jampacked with info. Although the course is advertised as a renovation course, it covered much more such as setting up trusts etc, wealth creation and various other subjects. I can not…[Read more]

    Hi emcdonald,

    I think the first thing you must do is determine just how serious you are about buying your first ip.
    Then if you are really serious set a goal and then work out a strict budget.
    You will be surprised just how much you most likely waste each week on unnecessary items.
    Stick to your budget and save, save ,save.

  • foston replied to the topic Low bids in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 7 months ago

    Making low offers does pay off in certain circumstances. The house next door to us is a rental property which the owner had let run down a bit and the tenants had expressed their unhappiness with their landlord to us on several occassions, due to his lack of maintenance on the property.
    They also were quite happy to show us the problems the house…[Read more]
