The Immigrant

  • Thanks guys for your inputs. I can see why investors shy away from this because it would be very difficult to manage, let alone find an insurance to cover this type of tenancy. Having said that, I think we can see a potential for cashflow in the short term while we prepare for the townhouse development. We plan to manage this ourselves as we are…[Read more]

  • Too bad there is no comment on this post. I am very much interested on other's experience on this kind of tenancy. We are thinking of buying a house and turn it into a 'rooming house' for the short to medium term but with a plan of developing multiple townhouses on the property in the long term.

    thanks guys for your recommendations.

    Also, would anyone recommend a property manager here in Melbourne that can manage a property located in northern suburb. I was considering RUN property and Metro Property managment. Any comments on these two.

  • The Immigrant replied to the topic Staging a Property for Rent in the forum Thanks guys for the 12 years, 1 month ago

    Thanks guys for the reply.Where the property is located I don't think there is a demand for furnished rentals. Since it is a small house, we would probably stage it ourselves with a few furnitures.

    Hi. No one has particularly answered above query. And i am seeking the same answer as well. Say you paid for LMI, and after 2 years your property has…[Read more]

    Success is never easy. There are always obstacles and problems you go through. And that's fine as long as we learn from and capitalise on these problems. Success, just as in life, is never easy. But it is better to be successful than not because you'll get hit with problems no matter what anyway.

    Hi lordopg. We've been accepted into the program. Stephen will talk to you first and assess you I think. Then he tells you that they will call you back to see if you progress to the next stage which is the one on one talk. Then they will take it from there before finally deciding. That was how the process went with us.You just have to find your…[Read more]

    Thanks andrew. I surely hope so, because if I will be successful, I will surely be able to influence people around me, and then they will pass it on to others too. It will surely have a trickle effect.

  • The Immigrant replied to the topic millionaire apprentice in the forum Help Needed! 12 years, 5 months ago

    I too applied for the Millionaire Apprentice Program and was shortlisted. Yesterday, I got a phone interview with Stephen Tolle himself, and was really blown away with his passion. My application is still being considered, and will get a confirmation this week if I made it to the program. It will be an exciting journey if chosen.

  • The Immigrant replied to the topic Asset Protection Permit in the forum Help Needed! 12 years, 6 months ago

    I got an indication that my builder will be taking care of it.

  • The Immigrant replied to the topic Asset Protection Permit in the forum Help Needed! 12 years, 6 months ago

    The permit fee which is $200+ is non-refundable, but the bond which is $1300+ will be refunded once final inspection is satisfactory to council.What i want to know is, will the builder be paying for this permit and bond?

  • The Immigrant replied to the topic Asset Protection Permit in the forum Help Needed! 12 years, 6 months ago

    The invoice is addressed to us as property owners. Does that mean I should be giving the invoice to the builder for him to pay the permit and bond?

  • The builder has included in the fix price the preparation costs. We actually have already done the permits (except the building permit which will be done by builder), including soil tests, pit and water connections.If it's about 2-3 weeks more to go, I might as well pay for the 5% deposit coz it will take probably about the same time for the…[Read more]

  • Apologies but can I jump in on this post. Got a similar query.Michael, our application for contruction loan has just been approved. But i understand it will still take some few weeks to get the docs from the banks signed and the for the funds to be availabe. We had an agreement with the builder that I can pay for the 5% deposit so they can start…[Read more]

  • The Immigrant replied to the topic Drafting costs for a first time builder? in the forum Help Needed! 12 years, 7 months ago

    Base from my recent experience, I too believe that's reasonable. Just make sure the fee covers every amendment to the plans. We have learned this lesson very costly as our first draft consultant charge us $1500 for every amendment requested by council.

    Hi. I am in the process of researching on how to invest in US property. I would appreciate if someone who has gone through the process and actually done meet up with me and discuss. I am based here in Melbourne. Thanks.

    Even if council says you can subdivide, that usually comes with conditions. Most councils don't want to subdivide a vacant lot unless they have an assurance that you will build on it. Normally you build first then subdivide later, or do them simultaneously as there are applications that take so long to complete.I am in the process of subdividing…[Read more]
