Hey Jane, I'd appreciate a copy too. Would you be able to send it to my profile address? Your profile says you are not accepting emails.Thanks.
Carla may well be right, I am just going on what we have 'enjoyed'. Monthly updates of 'just one more month, due to (insert lame reason here)'. I recognised the pictures of the plan on her website as the same as the ones we bought. The two developments appear to be back-to-back on to Queen Elizabeth Drive bordering the shops I mentioned. Sen…[Read more]
Hey guys,Interesting. There are a set of identical units just being finished near the local shops. I bought one off the plan. The downside (don't laugh too much) is they are now TWO YEARS past their original completion date. They were due for completion late 2009. The builder went bust not long ago, and the construction was taken over by anot…[Read more]

People in ACT use allhomes.com. It's great and seems to have none of the problems you mention. It's boast is that 99-100% of new home buyers look at the site in Canberra.
Hey Tobyson,I don't know about the pool, but one of my properties in Dysart rents for $950/week, and the other for $1200/week. No pools between them. They have never been vacant in the two years I have had them, with one rent increase each in that time. I have a great PM in the area who lines up the mining companies very efficiently. Send me…[Read more]
Head to the itunes store and go to the 'Finance' section. Then it's up to you about how much you'd like to spend. I coughed when I saw the price of it, but there's one called 'Property Evaluator' that looks good.

Hey Fingers,I don't suppose the one you sold in Dysart was in Singleton St?
Hey Fingers, I rent out my property in Dysart through Vision RE. They do a steady, professional job. I am signing them up for my new one in Dyart when it's finished, so obviously I think they are doing worthwhile work. They do most of their work through the mining companies of the area. Kerry and Renee are my contacts.Vision Real Est…[Read more]
We have one place under construction in Dysart, and several offers rejected as their owners are keeping properties close at the moment. Wildly CF+ each one, and the CG seems to be well worth it as well. Our $374k off the plan just sold for $395k on the open market in the same complex.Have fun.
Hey,gee first time on the site in a few years… Prattman28 is a few years behind the actual age! Anyway, I don't know about the accountant bit, but Beverly Alley (Not in Rivett anymore, in Coolemon Court now) handled the purchase of our 4 properties and all the ones from my extended family. She is a hardworking angel who has no time at all for…[Read more]
Jan McNutt is a great solicitor for conveyancing as she is a no-nonsense lady who tramples any of the little concerns that pop up when buying or selling.
Beverly Alley in Rivett is an excellent accountant for IPs, and gets a great return each year and knows all the information needed.
A job is fun, but….
That depends on where in Queanbeyan you’re looking… The difference between one side of the river and the other is impressive… I have a friend who did very well with her ex-PPOR in the area closest to Canberra. I still like buying units in Belconnen more… [biggrin]Happy hunting.
We just changed from Westpac (contents and landlords ins.) to AAMI yesterday, saving $1500 on 4 properties. They were helpful, patient and very cheap. Better everything, for less…. Westpac’s renewal message was their first, and last message we received from them, two weeks after their cover finished… a good reason to change if nothing…[Read more]
