richmond replied to the topic Commonwealth Games 2006- Impact on Melbourne Prope in the forum General Property 15 years, 10 months ago
I can’t see them having any impact whatsoever and I am a Melburnian.
As others have said – we weren’t in court, we can’t really 100% know her innocence or guilt, but even on the face of what has been reported, it is awfully difficult for me to believe she didn’t do it, the taking coal to Newcastle argument does not hold weight at all. She was caught red-handed, and if she was a 50 year old overweight male…[Read more]
good moderation makes a good forum, because I would argue that the majority of people couldn’t be bothered with having to wade through the personal attacks etc that this place is now littered with.
I barely come here any more because it’s the same old names spewing the same old stuff. Some of the people I used to like discussing things with bob…[Read more]
Hey there Marc,
I don’t profess to know it all, but I do try to take in information and then make something of it… do you have first hand information to reveal, so we can perhaps become as enlightened as you so obviously are?
I also don’t rate people’s achievements solely on whether they are wealthy or not, with a helicopter on the back of a…[Read more]
markpatrick – how about doing some homework before offering an opinion?
frmo the SBS website:
A post-mortem is due to be carried out on the body of Australian former stockbroker and convicted insider trader Rene Rivkin, who was found dead in his motherâ€™s Sydney penthouse apartment.
A family member discovered the mult…[Read more]
I think if you look at analysis of the events that led up to his death, the fact he was convicted of insider trading is believed to have played quite a big part… I was listening to an interview with his lawyer who said as much, that Rivkin couldn’t deal with the disgrace he’d brought upon himself, that in turn made his already clouded state…[Read more]
With all due respect to Mr Rivkin, because suicide is always tragic, I don’t think he did himself any favours when he was living. It’s not like Mother Teresa’s passed on. But then, he was that sort of bloke, wasn’t he? Very polarising…
The media, of course, won’t give them plenty of space, just as they don’t for other victims of tragedy.…[Read more]
howdy kay, long time no write…
Since the ones I’ve got there are all old-ish, I reckon I might sell a couple or maybe all of them and realise quite a bit of CG to put into something that’s going to have better returns, but not just yet… there’s a little way to go I reckon before I cash out…
As for your first question, at the moment I have…[Read more]
hmm, well, to the young people (I’m 30) don’t be too averse to getting out and about on the weekend and having a few frothies, or whatever else you’re into, you’re young, have fun… the key is moderation, moderation, moderation. A lot of people say save save save, I say save, but don’t forget to live a bit too.
I think articles like that have a negligble effect on confidence. serious property investors don’t pay them much heed at all, while PPOR buyers are purchasing for entirely different reasons, and will often buy what they like when they can, not necessarily tracking peaks and troughs in the market.
The overall figures are skewed by large jumps in Toorak, South Yarra and other highly priced suburbs. Turn to page 20 and you’ll see how the figures are meaningless… ie Essendon North suffering a 33% drop from Sept 2004 qtr median of $565k to $382k in December 2004 qtr… it just means that it’s more likely more houses in a lower price…[Read more]
property investing is horses for courses… some are comfortable buying in places like mt isa or mt morgan, or queenstown tas… I’m not. I wouldn’t buy somewhere just because it’s cheap.
I’ve been to mount morgan when I was buying in rockhampton… it’s a dump…
on figures, mt isa looks like it has good deals, but I’d be bloody careful buying…[Read more]
