I reckon it isn’t hard to get carried away with the whol RE game and then be trapped into it, ie we do what we have to do to purchase and buy more, but then we have to stay doing what we are doing to maintain. Hence, a lot of people are “downshifting” and simplifying. I guess it depends on if you can maintain your income- from whatever…[Read more]
I think you need to do your research on bankruptcy. Obviously, most people on here have not gone bankrupt, but lots of wealth gurus have. In fact, some brag about it as part of their marketing. [thumbsdownanim
hmmm… given that women got kicked out of the public service in Australia when they got married-= and that was official policy… so it’s not long that women have actually been able to freely participate in the world of work. Of course, had they chosen not to be married, and be one of those “career women”, then they could have got paid for their…[Read more]
I’m not normally into testimonial type things, but I have found Scott of Depreciator very nice to deal with. I am very much into “customer service”, and I’ll always deal with someone who is sane, rational and patient- any time- over business people who have poor interpersonal skills. Scott’s a good…[Read more]
In some ways, a flatter market means IR’s remain low and can’t be too bad… (don’t hit me!) I hope a potentially reinvigorated NSW market doesn’t mean higher IR’s. Think about it: a 2.25% rise in IR’s will be the equivalent of the vendor duty.
With all due respect (because I respect you), it is not hard to:
“… learn how one man did one deal and took the rest of the year off.”
Lots of people on here make a one-year wage with one deal- via capital gain etc. One only has to buy well and sell well and one can make 60k etc for one year. (I think one would be mad to put one…[Read more]
you ARE the body corporate- as in, you are a mwmber of the governing council, and have voting rights. Have you got a position on the BC? Perhaps you can put your name in, so you feel you can have more direct decision-making power.
How many units in the block? I can imagine with a larger block, there may be more cowboys to argue with.
Inventing testimonials is an old trick- and a very boring one- i don’t think anyone falls for it anymore. Probably the best testimonials are ones you can check. With REAL stories, I think anyone would be mad to make stuff up- although Kiyosaki did, and so have a lot of other gurus- particularly about their portfolios.
I think we have different experiences in what our degrees have provided for us- vastly different experiences. Horses for courses.
oshen- the woman who is working on the minesthat I know of- she is cooking and she said some of the other women there (wives) are cleaning. She said that some of the woimen are only doing it because they’re…[Read more]
A friend of mine is working at some mine in Qld, and she says the men there are all on 130k per annum. They also get food, electricity etc included. Presumably women can do this too, and some wives live on the base. All housing is owned by the mine. Go figure- it’s a lot of money. As it’s fly in fly out, it can’t be too isolating.
