Facebook is SOCIAL media.
People want to see photos of other people's lunch and then take better photos of their lunch… not see adds about random products.
Use social media to INTERACT socially with your potential customers. engage people in conversation and chat… be social
Use your social media adds to compliment your overall voice and…[Read more]
Im trying to get the document that was circulated around from ING to its brokers and partners. Apparently it was heavily driven by ASIC's position on the suitability of property investment in SMSF's.
Im investing heavily in Gold coast at the moment, the market is highly depressed – but wont be like that for long. After they finish the light rail the values will start to pickup mid next year, then automatically follow brisbanes upturn. So 2bed units selling for $170k now will likely to go up by 20% once the light rail is…[Read more]

I would have thought there would be more Chinese investors in Au property, but even under the Significant Investor Visa, which was dubbed as the 'Chinese investor magnet' (http://www.businessspectator.com.au/article/2013/6/21/national-affairs/doubt-sucking-value-investor-visas) has only drawn 171 applicants…
Apparently this scheme has…[Read more]

* Close to schools?
* Public transport?
* Contact council for any public notice proposed developments in the suburb?

I know you mentioned your not in the position to…[Read more]
Ryan Mclean has a great 5 part audio series: cashflow positive real estate investing.
I've had a listen and can recommend it. I think there is 15 odd downloadable MP3′s on sourcing cashflow positive IP's.
BC's strength seems to be in its anonymity. Something people love, something banks and governments hate.
It would be interesting to see what would happen, price-wise if the FBI dumped their stash from silk rd and the string of other seizures over the past 24 months.
It all feels allot to take in at the moment and hard to know what way to go.
looking forward to your help.
Floody, have you proceeded yet? I would be interested to hear how you went and what option you decided to go with.
Yep. New houses in new developments are typically capped for growth for the first few years (and up to 10). It has taken our first IP on the Gold Coast (Coomera) up to 8 years to see any real growth at all. (obviously GFC affected though). The main benefit for this has been good tenants, neutral-ish rental return and depreciation and tax benefits…[Read more]
I read a post earlier on here about the coming Commonwealth games on the Gold Coast in 2018… ? possibly consider the GC? I think the majority of work is being done in Southport.
But I think as close to the city you can get in Brissy will be a safe bet rent and tenant-wise.
Buying with your SMSF, assuming on 80%+ LVR you would be…[Read more]
People called 'tulip mania' on the share market too though.
Difference is bubbles are typically 'centralised' to one region, area or like MLM a supporter base.. cryptocurrency very globalised, gaining mainstream press and on the rise.
It will be interesting to see banks positions on the currency.
