    16 years, 8 months ago

    Hi Keen, I brought my first investment property about 12 months ago.  When the time came to secure finance for the property I had quite a bit of trouble getting a large enough loan.  My mortgage broker informed me that the problem seemed to rest  with the LMI providers.  So we ended up finding a lender that 'self insured', therefore by-passi…[Read more]

    Hey shake-the-disease,

    Thanks for your reply, they are good points that I have considered. I am not planning on selling the unit any time soon, so am not really after the capital gains. I just thought it would be a good entry into the market – and if it generally isn’t costing me anything from week to week I thought it might be a good idea.

    Hi Keneth,

    Sorry I was suppose to include your last comment in this reply, haha . . .oopps!

    Anyway, I didn’t mean to sound cynical in any of my responses, and I didn’t get the impression that any other members were being cynical as well. I was generally happy with the seminar I attended and with the appointment I had with CWB. However I do…[Read more]

    1. I have subscribed to CWB and read John FritzGerald’s book, “7 Steps to Wealth”.

    2. I find that what John FritzGerald shared in his book and seminar to be both informative and educational, and I am using some of his ideas to develop/adapt for my own property investing strategies. I do find that they…[Read more]

  • InvestorInTraining replied to the topic WHATS YOUR PROBLEM !! in the forum No Subject 18 years, 7 months ago

    NEED DEPOSIT!!!

    That is the one and only frastrating thing holding me back – I am currently playing the waiting game as I scrimp and save as much as I can.

    And before any suggestions come back – no, I don’t have access to any equity [glum]

  • InvestorInTraining replied to the topic good books in the forum Heads Up! 18 years, 7 months ago

    I have just started reading Scott Pape’s “The Barefoot Investor”. so far it has been a great read. It is written for a younger audience, it is entertaining yet very informative and has a great guide to tracking your spending (not a budget – he has just included a list of possible items we spend money on so when you try to recall where exactly…[Read more]

    Thanks for that Simon – I have been trying to figure out ways around my current situatuation which sounds similar to Jays. I am saving like crazy to purchase my first property but at the same time trying to pay off $10,000 on a car loan (which is probably more than what my car is worth now [glum])

    I was worried that even once I had…[Read more]

    Simon,

    In relation to being able to refinance to incorporate existing debt into your mortgage . . . Can this be done within 12 months of obtaining the mortgage, or do you have to wait until you have built up enough equity to cover the old debt???

    Thanks :D

    Hi Gatsby,

    Which papers in particular are you talking about to have a look through? Just the Courier Mail or the Australian etc?

    Thanks :D

    Hi Gatsby,

    Yes – I attendd the same seminar a couple of weeks ago, however John did appear at this one and spoke for around and hour and a half. The content he went over sounds very similar to what you have described (focussing on land content etc) and I did find it informative.
    I have also read his book and I do like the idea of the Toogoolawa…[Read more]

    *Celivia,

    Thank you for your reply. I had a look at the previous posts on Custodian Wealth builders and I will definitely be doing a lot more researh before considering dealing with them. However I do like to do my own research into property etc so I am not sure that they would be much help for me.

    Hi everyone,

    This is a follow up from my previous querie on if anybody has heard of or dealt with ‘Custodian wealth Builders’.

    I had my first appointment with them a couple of weeks ago and my opinion so far is positive. They are a fully disclosed company so they have to outline exactly where and how they make their profits etc. They offer advi…[Read more]

    Hi Rob & Ky,

    I am also beginning in the property investing arena, and at first I found a lot of the things you are talking about overwhelming. However – my best advice is to sit down and talk with multiple brokers. I have spoken with about 5 different brokers now, from different companies – each one of them had different peices of knowledge for…[Read more]
