Just thought I would pass on a website that I have started using (last couple of months) with great success. Because I live close to my investment property I thought that I would try my hand at self managing so that I can save a few dollars on the realestate fees.

I am considering renting out a property privately and have come across the following website – http://www.shortcuthome.com.au – they seem pretty good and they seem to have a lot of support and tools available – but I am still just a bit uncertain.
Has anyone used this site or one similar?
Do you have any feedback on the success?

Hi – I am looking to sell a property and not quite sure where to start. I have spoken to a few agents who have given me slightly different ideas on the value and target market of the property. I am having trouble deciding on which agent to go with. However, I have had advice to list with multiple agents – this was from someone in Qld (and I live…[Read more]
Sadly I have a property that is negatively geared….however, through several big mistakes on my part…..ie. buying in regional victoria, buying using a line of credit for the deposit, letting it run negatively geared for several years so that what I owe on it is more than what it is worth, buying a house that has some reasonable structural…[Read more]
we are just going through the process of setting up a SMSF. I was interested for the same reasons as you – I am learning all this stuff about investing and therefore frustrated that I can't invest my own money the way I want to.
One thing to keep in mind is that you can get a bit more creative with your super money rather than just buying a…[Read more]
You could look at a Joint Venture with someone that does have the deposit but doesn't have the serviceability on the loan. You could share the profits – so you wouldn't make as much, but at least you would be getting into a property that you couldn't otherwise afford and it reduces your risk.

Hi,Looking at it on the internet it appears to be really close to both the hospital and the airport. One method I use is I have a house in regional Victoria that is right next door to the hospital. I rent it out on short term rentals (usually between 2-6months at a time). I pay all of the expenses – electricity etc and they put their staff in it -…[Read more]
Hi,I have invested in Horsham and I am really happy with it. It is a growing town with diverse industry around it – both mining and farming. I must admit the drive out there is a pain (4hrs each way). But $200k will go a fair way out there.
I have a property that I bought earlier in the year in Horsham Victoria. I paid $178k including furniture and I rent it out as a corporate rental as it is right next door to the hospital – $350 a week! There is a fair amount of growth in Horsham so I am confident that there will be some capital growth aswell – but in the mean time I am not out of pocket!
Hi All,I literally spent all of yesterday reading this topic from start to finish – FASCINATING!!!I am planning a trip to the US in April with the hope of buying a couple of properties myself and a couple through a SMSF. What are people's thoughts on Atlantic City……….prices seem really good, but looking at the future – I see that they are a…[Read more]
I always ask for a 5% deposit (money is better in my pocket till settlement). Agents tend to expect 5% these days – lots of people ask for 5%. I have found that they would prefer 5% than a deposit bond – not many agents like deposit bonds as they aren't a guarantee.
I find that the quality of the tenents makes a BIG difference. I inspected a property on the weekend – there were heavy metal band posters all over the walls, dirty dishes piled up on the sink, it wreaked of cigarette smoke and there were no beds – just matresses on the floor – not an environment for high sale prices!
