  • Von Krumm replied to the topic Shipping container homes in the forum Help Needed! 11 years, 7 months ago

    The Affordable Portables look horrible. The reason I thought it would be a good idea is that shipping containers are so bloody cheap. Second hand you can find a 40' (30 square meters) container for $2k. Will have to do a few numbers and wait to here back from my mate whos a chippie, but I think there might be a market there considering the la…[Read more]

    It seems that there are already a few. Companies that do this. I am going to look into zoning and engineers reports for any modifications. AFAIK you don’t need footings and as they are structurally sound @ sea, they are find on land.

    And cheap too :)

  • IMO you can't go wrong with the bowen basin and surrounding areas. All this doom and gloom of property bubble bust cannot apply to these mining areas, can it?. Some guy said it before… "lots of people with massive salarys trying to rent/buy properties that don't even exist yet".Dispite key demand/supply data that is available now, you st…[Read more]

    How have the floods affected the town?Apparently cotton farms like lots of water so perhaps not too bad…

  • Von Krumm replied to the topic Do you have any IP in Moree? in the forum Help Needed! 12 years, 1 month ago

    Moree still has high yeilds and can see this discussion is almost a year old and perhaps a good time for a recap?Anything developing? Myrp data has 9.45% Qtr and 9.02% Yr growth… Seems like a good area for a first IP?

  • Von Krumm replied to the topic Selling CF+ to buy neg geared in the forum Help Needed! 12 years, 1 month ago

    Interest paid on a loan for an investment property can be claimed as an expense which results in a tax deduction on your personal income if you are making a loss on the property (cash flow negative).There are positives for both types of property but the thing with negativly geared property is that it must appreciate in capital value to make the…[Read more]

    A must read!Fantastic article mate cheers for sharing. With that ammount of money being pumped in I'm not sure doom and gloom talk of the property bubble burst applies in these areas.

  • Would love some info as well.Thinking about making a trip up to the bowen basin soon as it seems the place to invest.Can see most areas have seen substantial growth (+20% p.a) in the last ten years at one point or another. Mackay early 2000's, Chinchilla a few years after, Dysart around 2008 then Morranbah last year.I guess it's picking the right…[Read more]

    I recently inquired about a loan and the max LVR I could obtain, the lender didn't give me anything.If the suburb has a population of +10,000 is it safe to say it would be max LVR?Also what's the rules for IP's?  …. lower LVR right?

     I tend to disagree sorry Von.

    Yeah leverage is a powerful weapon. Interest rate rises are always a risk.I guess then LVR and liqidity are more important if things go to shiet.
