If you have rental properties you have to expect these things to happen. If you don’t already have Landlord insurance make this a lesson and never go without it going forward. As long as you have the relevant insurance and all your paperwork in check (entry report, routine inspections, notice of breaches and eviction), then it will always be a…[Read more]
Seen this has been dug up from last year care for an update Oscar? Did you end up selling two of them for what you were after and keep the third? Would be interesting to hear how it all ended up?
That’s where a good mortgage broker comes into the equation. There are a few on this forum I am sure one of them will raise their head shortly. Basically they split the original loan and the available equity portion becomes sort of like a ‘deposit loan’ which you can use for your deposit, then your application for the new property is only 80-90%…[Read more]
One thing that could maybe be adjusted… the ability to rate your own comment and hence become a ‘5 star’ member. I just tried this to see what it would do and I instantly had a top score. I had to click the dislike button on my own comment so that I didn’t seem desperate haha.
I think a persons rating should only be determined by how other…[Read more]
If you hold ctrl and click on the link it will do just this. Or you can right click on the link and select ‘open in new tab’. Super handy if you want to go through the recent posts and open up multiple posts to read through later.

2.Now my understanding from the meeting was that I don't pay interest on the equity. Why would I pay interest on money that is essentially already mine (i.e. not borrowed)? The way I see it is that the equity is already mine; I am using it to pay a deposit and cover fees on another loan.
Yes we are paying…[Read more]

Thought I would dig this up!…. How did everyone go with what they said they would accomplish throughout 2013???
Sounds like a replacement is the only way really. For the time being may just get rid of all the old white paint so it just looks like a normal purple tub instead of a purple tub with flaking white paint! I agree freckle personally I would love to get rid of the tub and just have a shower. Would open the bathroom right up but I don't want to loose…[Read more]
It will always seem like you are going to miss the boat if you don't jump in now, but really the deal of a lifetime comes along every week.
Personally I would concentrate on building up your equity – paying down your loan if you don't intend on renting the house out in the future, or manufacturing equity through reno's etc. Before you know it you…[Read more]
If they are only selling new properties and in areas such as Gladstone, chances are they are just the 'middle man' for moving developers over supply of stock (now the heat has died down in those areas and there is too much on the market), while making a nice commission from the developer in the mean time. They probably don't have your best…[Read more]
What eilatan28 has said is most likely the case. I know for my properties I get paid by the agent Monthly but the amount I get in rent varies as sometimes the tenants pay 2-4 weeks in advance and so the agent takes their slice when the money comes in. You should get a rental statement and it should be pretty easy to see on that?

How can they fix the hot water system for one week only? Would be interesting to see what would happen after that 1 week period… sounds a bit suss.

So basically you will be buying as a PPOR and then turning it into a rental later on down the track? Is that what you mean?
Good to see a fellow Mt Isan on the forum!
Hopefully you stick around.
Personally I wouldn't go through YBR, I have never been in the place so I could be wrong but generally places like that leave alot to be desired. I can personally vouch for Jamie as I use him myself. Living in Mt Isa and using a mortgage broker in Canberra sounds…[Read more]
In regards to question 2 maybe it is worth paying a couple hundred dollars to get a professional valuation done and then put this to your husband and show him what you are actually getting for the price you are paying. If it truly is worth 800k and you are getting it for 400k you won't get too many opportunities like that in your lifetime…
