    No I agree, one doesn’t have to retire and just sit back, and do nothing. Certainly keeping busy is the way to stay fit and healthy; but to assume that because one wants to retire or is making plans to do so, doesn’t mean they are going to just sit and wait for death to come and collect them either!!!!…[Read more]

  • I watched the article on today tonight and while i sympathise with people in this situation, i can’t see how the banks are totally to blame.Fair enough the bank readily loaned them the funds, but who signed the papers????.I believe they overcommitted themselves, i also noticed the 2 nice cars they were driving, are they also financed?.Critisize me…[Read more]

    Hi Brady,
    I think it is great for you to have such goals at your age, however you will most likely change your mind several times over the coming years as to what you want to do in life. A good education is very important as the skills and knowledge obtained can be very beneficial, especially if you want to pursue a career in property…[Read more]

    Hi Jo,
    My plan is a little longer than 5 years, i am 47 now and i have set myself a goal to be able to say goodbye to my boss at 55, which gives me just under 8 years.In that time i hope to obtain at least 5 or 6 ip’s or more if possible and work at having them pos cash flow to replace my present income.

  • G’day Greg,
    I am currently renovating an older house in Logan City which has asbestos walls and roofing.As far as i am aware there are no regulations which say the asbestos has to be replaced. If the walls are painted, have no holes or are not cut, drilled or sanded they are perfectly safe. A tenant could only be exposed to the asbestos if they…[Read more]

  • foston replied to the topic how much is enough? in the forum Help Needed! 16 years ago

    First i would like to replace my present income so i did not have to work for someone else, then work towards a comfortable retirement.
    I believe at this stage i would be happier when i have achieved this.

  • foston replied to the topic Robert G Allen in the forum Heads Up! 16 years ago

    Went to his Brisbane seminar on Thursday night, it was just about packed out. This guy is GOOD, he really knows how to work a crowd.For those of you who haven’t been to one of his seminars this is how he does things. He uses charisma, good acting and a little comedy to make you relaxed and get you interested. He has about 30 – 40 chairs at the…[Read more]

    Thanks guys, will look into them.

  • foston replied to the topic Robert G Allen in the forum Heads Up! 16 years ago

    I am going to his seminar in Brisbane tomorrow night, hoping to pick up some helpful tips. There was an article on ‘Today Tonight’ tonight which most probably will not help his cause any, will most likely increase attendance figures as people will want to see what he is about, particularly as Neil Jenman has had his say and reckons he is another HK.

  • Hi Kay,
    We are currently organising finance , building and pest inspections on our first ip, a 2 bed unit, should all be finalised shortly. If all goes well we may look at buying another at the end of the year, in the meantime we are still renovating our ppor which we hope to turn into an ip when we are finished and buy another reno.

    Marisa, If the tenant is struggling to pay the rent he is obviously on a low income or a pension, has he looked into the possibility of getting rent assistance, this may ease the burden of a rent rise.

  • foston replied to the topic Income Protection in the forum No Subject 16 years, 1 month ago

    Hi Gatsby,
    My advice is to shop around and read the fine print very carefully. Most reputable insurance companies offer income protection insurance of some sort. Premiums will vary considerally depending on the level of cover you want. Be honest with your medical history or you will be caught out if you ever claim.I had a policy with a large…[Read more]
