    Glendfield park does look good and with big blocks but is it too far out of the main town and infrastructure.

  • here to learn replied to the topic Wagga Wagga in the forum Help Needed! 12 years, 2 months ago

    thanks Jamie it's a bit hard to reno from afar but at least I can depreciate the work someone else has done.  I'm more after which areas to buy in as I don't want something that may flood or be away from infrastructure.

  • here to learn replied to the topic Wagga Wagga in the forum Help Needed! 12 years, 2 months ago

    because I am living in Vic, I don't want any thing that needs work. I prefer something renovated in good condition,preferably on a large block that could possibly be subdivided at a later stage. Cash flow neutral to positive.

    thanks Jamie we will be in Wagga next couple of weeks but was hoping for some information before we get there to actually look, as we will be a little time poor.

    what about buying an investment. keep living with parents for another year and saving like crazy then use the equity and savings to purchase your own place. you will still get the first home owners grant for your own place as your first purchase would be an investment. just food for thought

    the other thing to remember to is if someone is interested in your property as an investment they are not going to keep uncoperative tenants so they are not doing themselves any favours

  • here to learn replied to the topic Where are the best returns in Sth East QLD in the forum Help Needed! 16 years, 9 months ago

    you can do what you like. i have had agents tell me the same thing and i insist they put it up in small amounts regulary or if change of tenant  $10 – $15 depending on what i think i can get. check out what else is available and at what price . you would think agents would like to put rent up as their commision goes up.

  • here to learn replied to the topic depreciation on a reno job in the forum General Property 16 years, 9 months ago

    margaret lomas has free software you can download which is easy to use. you just fill in the figures and it works it out for you. you will need a bar code from one of her books though to access. librarys have copies of her books if you don't want to purchase one.
