Thanks “Don & Liz” for your intelligent, sensitive and inspiring response to my initial posting.
Also thanks again to “Monopoly” for her response. I would however be concerned if you really were a psychologist [confused2]. I also believe that you’ve managed to wander too far away from the essence of my original topic. [blush2]
Regards – Johnny1
Thanks everyone for your kind advice even “Monopoly” who noticed that I posted my same thread 3 times (before the other 3 were deleted out of the forum). Also, “Monopoly” sounds like a very knowledgeable person when he/she says – “Why worry about a market that you obviously don’t understand fully” and that I (meaning myself) “won’t be able to run”…[Read more]
I’ve been to one of Custodian Wealthbuilders roadshows and they’re “developers”(to use the words of a pushy Custodian consultant who I had a meeting with later that same week) who try and push “negatively”geared property investments.

Thanks “sizzling_duck” and “brahms” for your replies.
I probably should have given more info in my original posting but you’re quite right – “what’s nice?” to me may not be necessarily “nice” to you. [smiling]
I should have mentioned the reasons why I decided to forward my original postsing. My reasons are as follows –

POST NOVEMBER MEETING
Hi everyone. The November meeting was really good, especially the talks given by Petra, David, Andrew and Bryce (from Melbourne). My wife and I learnt a lot. 
Todays market is a “sellers market”  not a “buyers market” . Good luck with the “starting off low” but I think that if you like the house and it adds up then – buy it. If not, wait until it’s a “buyers market”  – which should be coming up very soon (don’t quote me on that).
Yesterday I received Eurofinance’s prospectus and spent many hours last night reading the voluminous document.
Having read it, I have both some GOOD NEWS for everyone and also some BAD NEWS.
The BAD NEWS is that all those people who said that “The higher the return, the higher the risk” (and you know who you are ) were probably right, but the…[Read more]
Dear MARTINW & ECCLES – I hope you’re both not inferring that I’m a “lard-arse” and like to “remain within a certain level of comfort like accepting 8.7% return instead of 10.4%. As it is too hard for” me – just because on 03/10/2003 I put a posting in under “8.75% p.a. for Just Sitting on Your Bum” which is now under the “General Investing“…[Read more]
Thanks HOUSESITTER 
That’s a really good site for venting your spleen on [}]
I can now keep my dirty linen (don’t want to keep bringing the subject up BUT has anyone ever heard of Whittles Strata “Managers” [}]) away from this site and just stick to learning about property investment. 
but also have a “black book” site where you can dob in the real estate agent who has shafted you or the property manager who has let your investments run to rack and ruin. It keeps them on their toes knowing that their name is being splashed all over a “property” website. It also serves to warn the “newbie” investor of who to look out for. It’s…[Read more]
