    And no, even if mortgage rates fell to 5%, I would not be borrowing money to buy real estate…

    If the property was pos geared, and you were looking to buy  and hold long term, why wouldn't you?If you could snare 5 properties that return a nett rent after all expenses of  even a pathetic $25 per week RIGHT NOW that's a p…[Read more]

  • L.A Aussie replied to the topic Need help selling your property faster? in the forum General Property 15 years, 8 months ago

    Yeah; if I give you $1000 will you do it please?That's about all the work an agent does is worth, given their quals and training.For example; a nurses' aid (PSA) earns about $20 per hour. It's a 3 month course. Easy course, easy work. I did it for 3 years when my son was little. great benefits and penalty rates, salary packaging as well.I also did…[Read more]

    yep , me too, positive about the sharemarkets in the future. Much more money to be made on shares than on property. Renting and investing is a much better option than buying a property. Why lose 50K a year and even more on capital losses, if you can make 100K a year with the same investment ?Doesn't make a lot of sense…[Read more]

  • L.A Aussie replied to the topic Investors in the forum General Property 15 years, 9 months ago

    Sounds too good to be true.No doubt it is.There's no purchase price, no completion dates and I'm tipping the purchase price has already got the rental guarantee built into the price.Buyer beware.If this is so good, why are they selling it to us? They should buy the whole joint themselves.My guess is the real money is made by the developer on this…[Read more]

  • L.A Aussie replied to the topic does anyone know cheap financial advisors in melb in the forum Opinionated! 15 years, 9 months ago

    That offer to move back in with the parents and rent out the unit is a good one, as you can then claim all your holding costs from your unit on your tax return.Beware of the "cost" of doing this – moving into a house with your family AND your parents at the same time. This is to say the least; interesting. It may save you lots of money, but may be…[Read more]

  • L.A Aussie replied to the topic Dificult agent. Sect 32 & offer issue. in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 10 months ago

    Just bypass the agent and contact the Vendor directly.The agent will get pissed off, but who cares? He's not acting in the best interest of the Vendor.He might think he is by not passing on your low offer, but if no-one else is making offers, then yours is the best one they have got.In my State of Victoria, by Law the agent must pass on every…[Read more]

  • L.A Aussie replied to the topic How to make the most out of our holiday house? in the forum Legal & Accounting 15 years, 10 months ago

    You can only claim the percentage of the expenses that relate to the holiday letting.So, if you let it for 48 weeks a year, you can claim 48 weeks worth.The other way to do it would be to treat yourselves as a normal guest, pay all the proper rental rates for the time you use it, and then claim the whole year's expenses.Management fees for these…[Read more]

  • L.A Aussie replied to the topic Premier Realty Management – do you think this is a scam? in the forum General Property 15 years, 11 months ago

    SCAM

  • L.A Aussie replied to the topic Do you think this property has really been withdrawn from sale? in the forum General Property 15 years, 11 months ago

    The agents will leave it on the website as long as possible to get exposure, and try to sell other properties off it.

    Well said Scamp.  (your reasoning on why RBA should not decrease interest rates)Lets see if the RBA does what it needs to do or bows to political pressure.Lets see if the RBA further destroys the long term health of the nation by bowing to political pressure and reducing rates.I'll bet they go the wrong way, reduce rates…[Read more]

    L.A. Aussie – owner occupiers are not 70% of the market. In an RBA report form 2003, which I have linked to elsewhere on this forum, owner occupiers were put between 40 & 45%.

  • Scamp, if Aus is so bad (as you keep describing to us) then why are you coming out here?Why don't you simply stay where you are in your wonderful country – whatever it is.It can't be too bad if you've done so well that you can come pout here and pay cash for one of our exhorbitantly priced houses.
