Queensland. Working out interest payments and stuff would be where it gets murky – I'm going with the assumption that this guy doesn't want to be overly complicated with trying to work out figures, so if I can either do that for him or there's a third party company that is set up to facilitate the vendor relationship then that would be…
Are there many people here who invest in the UK? I found some amazing properties while living there – for 20,000 pounds you could buy a place that was returning about 80 pounds a week in north England. Not only that but the tenant pays the land tax and water rates.

The rental return (see my first post) is $145 per week. Based on a 20% deposit, this property breaks even, and this is the ASKING price. No I’m not selling this property, it was merely one that I saw in an agents window while travelling and thought that others may be interested even if I’m not in the position to purchase at this…[Read more]
It really is amazing how a reputation can kill property values!!!

This is a way of working around the problem – although having to put a search word (I have put in a vowel in the search field in order to bypass the error message if I fail to put in a search word) is not the ideal.

Just a thought! How about buying the positively geared property and spend a few grand on maintenance before you head overseas, and make some money $$$. Add extra payments from job in the UK and you’ll be streets ahead of that silly old negatively (-) gear ip.
You know what to do!
PS Think positive! It works for me!! $$$
I initially didn’t think you could, but a quick conversation with my accountant told me that you can offset your negative losses against your future earnings [8D]!
