  • maximus replied to the topic TAX what do I need to do in the forum General Property 19 years, 11 months ago

    Hi Cornel. I agree with Yack and Derek, go see an accountant. Take anything you think may be related to your I/P that you may be able to claim on. If you forget something that your accountant thinks you may have, just fax it through to him/her. Hope this helps.

  • maximus replied to the topic Good IP now not so good? in the forum Help Needed! 19 years, 11 months ago

    Hi Myydral. I don’t know your exact position re finances, but $500-700 is not too bad as far as negative gearing goes. It averages out to about $13 a week. I’d love some neg geared properties at that rate, PROVIDED IT HAS CAPITAL GROWTH, which, if you are are hanging on to long term will not be a problem. Me, I’d hang on to it. Just my…[Read more]

  • maximus replied to the topic The best learning resource? in the forum Help Needed! 19 years, 12 months ago

    Hi Coldy. As others have so rightly mentioned, you should read as much as you can and visit the cheap seminars but I kid you not, you will pick up heaps of info from hanging around this forum. Dont be afraid to ask questions either, no matter how “silly” you may consider them to be.

  • maximus replied to the topic cracks in brickwork in the forum General Property 20 years ago

    Thanks for the replies guys.I’m fairly sure it is caused from shifting soil, will let my friend know your responses and he can decide if he wishes to pursue the matter any further. Thanx again.

  • maximus replied to the topic I can’t see passive income increasing!! in the forum No Subject 20 years ago

    Hi ya Creemin. Just another thought. Over the years, your rent increases and your loan amount decreases (assuming you are paying P&I). You can now refinance and have lower repayments thus more in your pocket. Even if you refinance to a interest only loan, you will have even more left over and still be able pay off extra on your I.O loan to reduce…[Read more]

  • maximus replied to the topic Do you invest and play??? in the forum General Property 20 years ago

    Hi all. Great topic, as I believe that the “not working” part is what most of us here are trying to achieve. To those that have managed to get themselves to a position of not working (Fern, Westan), if this is not too personal a question (will understand if it is),how much were you making from your property investments before you decided to give…[Read more]

  • maximus replied to the topic stagnated rent! in the forum General Property 20 years ago

    Hi there High Flyer. Westan summed this one up nicely. I believe if the rents in the area where your I/P is are renting out marginally higher than your one (say $5-10), it may not be worth possibly losing your tenant by increasing the rent, only to find you might have to charge the same rent to attract a new tenant. Obviously, if rents are much…[Read more]

  • maximus replied to the topic My 1000th post, so better make it a good one… in the forum General Property 20 years ago

    Well done and congrat’s on your “1000” Mini. Like others here, I’ve enjoyed reading your posts. Keep it up and keep on inspiring.

    P.S Was nice chatting to you recently

  • maximus replied to the topic Queensland investing? in the forum Help Needed! 20 years ago

    Hi Realdeal. I agree with Flash re Bayside suburbs. I bought in Redland Bay a couple of years ago and fortunately have had excellent growth. Since I bought, a new shopping complex has/is gone up (already a major one at Victoria Pt), a lot of land has been developed and I read recently where a new child minding centre has been given the go-ahead at…[Read more]

  • maximus replied to the topic from the news wires in the forum General Property 20 years, 1 month ago

    Hi Richmond. Just wanted to say that I (and I’m sure heaps of others)really appreciate your “from the news wires” posts. Makes it sound like a Dear Abbey column, doesn’t it. Keep em’ comin’

    EVERY MONTH?!?!?! That means MORE time hanging around the newsagent and dodging the owner. Think I’ll have to read one article at one newso’ and another article at the next newso’ and so on.

  • maximus replied to the topic Property EXPO in the forum General Property 20 years, 1 month ago

    Hi Nathan. This is obviously too late a reply for you (sorry) as The expo finished yesterday but anyway…… I went again this year and it was pretty much the same as last year but I still enjoyed it. Yes, you have to dodge the sales reps that keep thrusting info sheets etc in your face but some of the guest talkers are worth seeing and I believe…[Read more]

  • maximus replied to the topic Who subscribes to API Magazine? in the forum No Subject 20 years, 1 month ago

    Hi again all.Went to the property expo yesterday (28/3) and upon entering picked up the latest two editions of API for free. At least now I can read these editions properly and pick up any info I may have missed while standing in the news’os.

    Have a good one

  • maximus replied to the topic Who subscribes to API Magazine? in the forum General Property 20 years, 2 months ago

    Hi all, I don’t subscribe to API, I try and read the articles that interest me while standing in the newsagents (how tight is that). If something REALLY interests me or the guy behind the counter is giving me dirty looks (just because I’ve been standing there an hour) I will buy it. lol.

  • maximus replied to the topic Interest Rate Increase in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    Come on Mel, lets fess up. The Reserve Bank does not meet again until February, so logically there can be no rate increase until at least then.

    Marty

  • maximus replied to the topic Interest Rate Increase in the forum General Property 20 years, 5 months ago

    I’m with Mel on this one. In fact I’ll bet everything I own on no rate increase in January.

  • maximus replied to the topic Are bank valuations really market value? in the forum General Property 20 years, 7 months ago

    Hi Nats, as a rule of thumb I have found bank valuers to be conservativ, probably to cover their backside, but as Westan said, try to be present when the valuation is done and point out things they may overlook and let them know what similar properties in the area have sold for.

  • maximus replied to the topic Another FHOG question in the forum No Subject 20 years, 7 months ago

    Thanks for that Simon. My mates son will be happy. He thought he may lose the FHOG for himself by purchasing an I/P first.

  • maximus replied to the topic spill the beans ppl……..plz? in the forum General Property 20 years, 7 months ago

    Hi Pinky. All of the mentioned ways of property research that you suggested are good but I agree with wilandel that if you can find a R/E agent that you trust, they can be very valuable and time saving.

  • maximus replied to the topic new site format in the forum Hotch Potch 20 years, 7 months ago

    Have to agree with Crashy and Arty, the breakdown of the new site makes it easier to keep track of different posts as more and more people join this community.

    Cheers
