    If you're in Melbourne, try Educated Investor in Collins Street. I find the staff there knowledgable and they'll definitely point you in the right direction. If you're not, try their website… http://www.educatedinvestor.com.au/No one book holds the key – read lot's and take little bits from all of them. I'd spread your reading between investment…[Read more]

  • imugli replied to the topic Ferntree Gully VIC, Bowen Street…Pls help..!!! in the forum General Property 15 years, 9 months ago

    When we bought our PPoR we spoke to a couple of the neghbours and asked them a few questions – Is the street used as a drag strip? Young Families in the area? Quiet? How long they'd been there? What did they think of it? etc etc… You'll get heaps of info from them… Secondly, did you notice kids running around the streets or riding their bikes…[Read more]

    Cheers guys for all your help, so lets say I'm new to investing and this would be my first IP. Would LOC be the best option, and does anyone know if this is true ? 1. You can buy a IP and as long as you don't live in it, you can later purchase PPOR and get FHOG

    Dude, you're asking the same questions in 2 or 3 threads :-) SRO…[Read more]

    From the first link above…You and your spouse/partner must not have owned residential property, either jointly, separately or with some other person prior to 1 July 2000, in any State or Territory of Australia You and your spouse/partner must not have occupied for a continuous period of at least 6 months, a residential property in which either…[Read more]

  • imugli replied to the topic Trust & Corporate trustee… Can you set it up yourself???? in the forum Legal & Accounting 15 years, 9 months ago

    You probably want 2 appointors and you also need what's called a settlor – someone who deposits and initial amount ($10.00 generally) who then has no claim to anything whatsoever. They are basically the person who gives your company the money to hold in trust. Is $2k the quote to set up your company and the trust? Because if it's for both it's…[Read more]

    Chris / JoThis is a public forum and you make comments to gain feedback from people, in this case a lot of people that have more experience in these matters. For what it's worth I don't consider myself to be one of those, just a beginner myself.Research and Preparation are the most important things when it comes to investing in anything, not just…[Read more]

  • imugli replied to the topic Calculating principal repayment for offset savings in the forum Finance 15 years, 9 months ago

    You can get a month by month amortisation calculator here… http://www.infochoice.com.au/Home/Banking/Calculators/tabid/137/Default.aspx?ArticleId=15319It shows exactly how much is going on interest and principal each month. Hope it helps :-)

  • imugli replied to the topic First Home Owner in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 9 months ago

    You can do both – the IP first AND still get the FHOG… https://www.propertyinvesting.com/forums/getting-technical/finance/4325600Third post from the bottom of the page. Go to work! :-)

    Thanks for your advice too imugli, I am starting to think you are right, but am still in 2 minds. Maybe we are just not in a position yet to buy. We have been putting away all our spare money, but it is slow going, and a decent chunk of my spare money goes towards the negatively geared IP. I guess it is also not a good idea to…[Read more]

  • imugli replied to the topic First Home Owner in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 9 months ago

    Best place to start is by reading lot's of books on property, investing and tax / structures. Then figure out your objectives – what do you want to gain from investing? Reduction in taxable income? Passive cashflow (i.e income you don't have to work for)? Asset protection? A 'legacy' for future offspring? Is it simply a land grab (because they…[Read more]

  • imugli replied to the topic is this a trick? in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 9 months ago

    Don't draw on your IP. The interest you pay on the equity draw or redraw won't be tax deductible like it is now… Second, you will, in effect be borrowing 100% of the value of your new place – <$38k from the equity and the remaining on a new loan. Can you afford the payments on that? You'll be at least 90% geared – could you afford a negative…[Read more]

  • imugli replied to the topic Borowing to Buy(invest) Properties overseas in the forum Overseas Deals 15 years, 9 months ago

    Think of a line of credit as a great big credit card, but secured against your property as opposed to being unsecured like a normal credit card. You have a limit and an interest rate and you have to pay x% of the outstanding debt each month, not an MMP as such like with a standard mortgage…

    With $430 a week rent plus tax benefits we can reduce the interest paid through our line of credit and this will help us reduce our debt faster than we can by our selves.

    Thanks for the reply imugli.We currently operate our business within a family trust structure, and perhaps I should create a new one for property investing to help protect the assets from creditors of the business in the unlikely event that something should go wrong.

    imuli, Yes you always link the offset account to the non deductible debt.Only if you have no NDD would i link an offset account to an investment loan.

    IMO you should start by getting the current IP to CF+ status – set up an offset account linked to the IP and dump everything in that. THEN start looking at your next one.
