  • SAS Building replied to the topic Thailand Holiday – Whoopee or Not in the forum Many years ago, I got flown 13 years, 1 month ago

    Many years ago, I got flown to Queensland for free to look at some units that were for sale off the plan… Day 1 was fairly relaxed so i visited a few estate agencies in the area so i could compare apples with apples, Day 2 was intense, they ran a presentation then somehow split myself and a friend of mine into different rooms and tried the heavy…[Read more]

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Can I pay the builder after the property sale? in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 2 months ago

    Well said IP Freely. And if the market drops… you pay the builder less ?? or not at all ?Another reason I (as a builder) choose to work for myself, on my own projects.Some builders may enter into a contract with you, with a bank guarantee, but i am guessing this would be hard for you to obtain unless you own the property/s outright.

  • SAS Building replied to the topic 11 second solution in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 2 months ago

    The 11 sec rule is just a quick guide you can use when weeding through the thousands of deals out there.. very rare to find a deal that instantly works with the advertised 'as is price'.Best to use the rule to get close to an 'acceptable deal', then factor in cosmetic makeovers, rent increases, aditional rooms, negotiating a better purchase price.…[Read more]

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Rent Rise every 6 months..Plight of a TENANT. in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 3 months ago

    On the flipside, the landlord would have had about 6 interest rate rises in the time that you have had 2 rent increases, also you knew the condition of the place when you first moved in so if you didnt like it you should not have signed the lease and looked for something else.Also, my deepest sympathies are with you regarding your mother passing…[Read more]

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Property Investing Mentors are they worth it? in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 3 months ago

    I keep saving up to attend… but each time i have a spare 5 – 10k, I end up putting it towards another property !!Having said that, Im up to 18 properties and still have to go to "work" for a living, so maybe i could learn from these seminars..

  • SAS Building replied to the topic IP-6 weeks and still no tenant in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 10 months ago

    CHANGE AGENTS !! or better still, list it with 2 agents, this will have them competing with each other to rent it out.

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Stupidity test to become a banker ?? in the forum General Property 14 years, 1 month ago

    Burnie – it’s amusing that the banker I was talking about is also from WBC.. You can imagine how I cringe when I hear the “bank you can bank on” slogan … MAKES ME SICK !!

    Banker – yes, accountants, financial planners etc do the same thing. However when you go to your accountant you would first expect to at least have your taxes done (the job…[Read more]

  • SAS Building replied to the topic is anyone investing in rural towns! in the forum Creative Investing 14 years, 2 months ago

    I have been (for years now), using the income from positive cashflow rural properties to cover the shortfall on high growth inner city properties. No use having a million dollar inner city properties if all you are doing is putting your hand in your pocket to pay for them !

    I do limit my rural towns to those that have 10 000 + population

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Finance for block of 3-4 units in the forum Finance 14 years, 3 months ago

    I spoke to ANZ last friday as i would like to refinance, I was concerned about the two blocks of units in particular and specifically asked the bank manager the above question. They are ok, but ‘only’ for a 70% lend. I did not go into what other securities they would require, but did ask about the rate and he would match WBC. Meeting later in…[Read more]

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Finance for block of 3-4 units in the forum Finance 14 years, 3 months ago

    No
    But did put down a large chunk of my own money to cover the remaining 40%

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Finance for block of 3-4 units in the forum Finance 14 years, 3 months ago

    Hi,

    I have a block of 6 (one title) that I purchased a year ago at same rate as residential, however the bank (WBC) would only lend 60% without M ins.
    6 Months ago I purchased a block of 5, again residential rate, and would only lend 60%

    Cheers,

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Finance – this seems odd! in the forum Help Needed! 14 years, 5 months ago

    J-Lou,

    I have similar LVR as yourself, (only different amounts) and recently purchased a property and went through hell with finance companies, such as Bankwest/Commbank, Westpac, Anz and Nab.

    I have savings / loan history of 25 years with Westpac, and this did not help. (Cringe every time i see the “bank you can bank on add” !!)

    Ended up…[Read more]

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Has anyone used CashflowCapital to purchase CF+ IPs? in the forum Help Needed! 14 years, 6 months ago

    I am a member and have found their info very helpful although I have only purchased one property through them. Be sure to add the 2.5% when working out if the deals they advertise are still cashflow + also check the rental returns are long term, meaning they have not just upped the rents and advertised for a quick sale.

    Their staff turn around…[Read more]

    14 years, 7 months ago

    Hi Fredo,
    Your post seems like dejavu, as i recently had the exact same experience, only I had purchased the property at auction and paid 5%dep (ouch). After 4 weeks of dealing with a broker and not really getting anywhere, I approached another broker who recommended I “GO STRAIGHT TO THE BANK !! as this will be quicker”.

    I usually go direct to…[Read more]

    Thanks both for your input..

    Finspec – could you elaborate a little more on ” Loan quality also plays a role in the discount that you can get now”

    and Richard, I am currently trying to run the tricky balance between maximising loan amounts for IP’s (to reduce tax) and getting a good deal on finance. If i was to add some of my own funds to reduce…[Read more]

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Mt Druitt Sydney Positive CF in the forum General Property 14 years, 9 months ago

    congratulations on your purchase !, I bought a 1000m2 block in mt druitt 11 years ago for $110000, sub divided it and built a duplex on the back block. EVERYONE told me that it was a bad area and I will never get the return. It has proved to be one of the best investments i have ever made, the only regret i have is not buying 10 of these…[Read more]

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Cashflow Capitial Website????? in the forum Heads Up! 15 years, 3 months ago

    Shhh… dont tell everyone !!
    I have been a menber for a little over a year and found the site and service excellent, but most of their properties are on domain or realestateaustralia anyway. They just let you know the rental income (save you ringing every property on domain etc) to find out the rental return.
    Most of their properties are in…[Read more]

  • SAS Building replied to the topic Help with financing a duplex in the forum Finance 15 years, 3 months ago

    Try Bank West, I have found them to be fairly flexible, while most of the majors (Westpac and CBA) are tightening their lending criteria. I have also found that “banking with them forever” is currently making no difference to the way the big banks are looking after clients…
