    The month after Cyclone Marcus Darwin has seen a big clean up with many of the downed street trees cleared away. A job advertisement that brought a smile to my face was the position of Director Migration Northern Territory, a well-paid job but with a current 0.01% migration rate I hope the successful applicant has a positive attitude.

    Hello AropeYou are back at the start of your questions I think?"Do you think property valued at $300,000 now would increase more than $45,000 in 5 years time?"It depends who you ask as shown above, it also depends were you buy.But yes I think a property could increase in value by that much over that time."Is it still worth purchasing a property…[Read more]

    Hello aRope99,I suspect you will get a few answers to this question so I will travel lightly and make no recommendation.Option 1 Sounds good but I would want be looking for a property that either grew in value, paid good rent (or both) before I was looking for a property that provided good tax deductions.

    Hello Wren,Great, I think Darwin will provide capital growth as the current round of projects come to fruition and that the capital growth will run for five years.

    Try entering the name of the town into the search box on the top right and you will find 6 pages on Port Hedland. I suspect a search on Olympic Dam will return  a similar quantity of discussions.Also more specific questions may drag some answers out.While Gladstone is not a mining town my partner and I have experienced the rapid growth such a…[Read more]

  • Nick Kirlew replied to the topic Making an Offer in the forum General Property 12 years ago

    To the best of my knowledge the agent has to put any reasonable offer to the vendor.We have stood accross the back garden and traded bids with the agent and vendor so it certainly does happen without any documentation.Would you offer a higher number to try and find the vendors interest point?

  • I have never purchased through the investors club although early today I sent our current house requirements through to my local club support member. If we buy one through them I'll let you know how it goes.The last time I asked for a property through them the advice was we were spending too little.
