I think everyone has a horror story a to tell about either a bank or broker, but I can tell you without hesitation that I have had a lot of deals put through by Cameron Perry and he is the best broker that I have dealt with.He is thorough, courteous and clever with the way that he structures deals and always has had solutions to my tricky…[Read more]
Excellent advise from previous posts. I would check Real Estate agents in the Rockdale area to see what is the asking rent in that area and then increase the rent if it is warranted. Is a Real Estate agent managing your property? If he is ask him what the rents are.What are your reasons for wanting to sell? Are you short of funds? If so is yo…[Read more]
Hi Damon,It is great to see a broker to get structured properly but I would take a step back and find an accountant first (that invests himself is a must) that could structure correctly from the start depending on what you wanted to achieve through investing eg company and trust set up esp if you want to then sell All this ground work first w…[Read more]

Jenny1 replied to the topic Rental inspection today – but I want to buy the property in the forum Hi Tom,
What I would do is 15 years, 6 months ago
Hi Tom,What I would do is research the area for prices and do you your sums before putting a written offer forward tell him you have come to this figure based on current sales and the quotes that you have obtained to get a few things up to par. In the written quote as per Steve's book (and it works) state this offer is good for 24 hours and a t…[Read more]

This whole thing went on for way to long and your more of a patient person than I would be. Start jumping up and down insist on seeing whoever is the decision maker armed with all documentation, if no satisaction then I would also not only go to all current affairs programs to get this story aired I would also talk to consumer affairs and any…[Read more]
Like you we went through our real estate agent to ask vendor if we could do a few things like pull down a wall and rip out a bathroom, vendor said yes through agent. Agent said that most vendor solicitors would get vendor to say no for various reasons.
We have now settled and sent vendor a gift for allowing us early entry to get major…[Read more]
This time of year (I am in CAnberra) not too many pools going in I was wanting to know if any others on the forum have filled in a pool and the costs associated with doing so.
Also asked if permission is needed or engineers report required.
It is not hard managing your own property and if anything your problems are minimal as you deal with problems straight away.
What I have learnt is that it is crutial to:-
– Screen tenants and ring referees (make sure they are not related!)
– Do a property condtion report taking notice and photo’s of every room tenant also can make…[Read more]
Depends on what your investment goals are, is this just a one of property that you and your brother will go halves in or is it a business of buying and holding?
If you are buying other properties together will you do the same or renovating and selling?
Need to be clear on your goals and also need to make sure you are both thinking similar…[Read more]
I would suggest you talk to the wonderful brokers on this forum who will be able to work out how much you are able to borrow, next you will need to talk to an accountant on the correct structure to suit the way that you will invest in the future. I have recently done this and it cost $1,200.00.
I then purchased property under this new…[Read more]

In regards to tradies I have also never had any problems, I use the same ones over and over again and…[Read more]
Good answer Julie but I was more interested what people were doing to make their outside more presentable in these hard times of little water.
Sorry if my question wasn’t more clearer, I am sure everyone is in the same boat just wanted to know of any clever ideas to attract a buyer.
Thanks anyway Kjs,
I certainly know about red tape can hear your frustration confused2]
