http://www.mpppi.com.au Try these guys…..think from memory they were around th $500 – $600 mark. They give a fairly detailed report. Only ever used them and have been happy with them so far……so cant really compare them with anybody else.Hope this helps.
Just like to point out that out of that $60 – $80 per hour that we might charge, includes overheads, insurances, super, gst, tax, etc. So just because a "dirty ass, uneducated" tradie may get around $2200 per week…….he might actually only take home $1200 instead….and that wouldnt be for a 40 hr week either and i can vouch for that…[Read more]
Agree with u blogs…like i said not all tradies are like what you have had. You must just have bad luck my friend. When you need a dirty old plumber next time…..shoot me an email (& 1 of those free slabs of crownies).
Just because we dont do a dergree, does that mean we have to earn less than say, accountants, etc?To me some people cant fathom that a 'dirty old tradie' can be on a high income, maybe even higher than theirs?Sounds to me blogs that you might have to shop around next time before you hire a tradie. Seems that every tradie you have hired is a wo…[Read more]
Andrew Milne from what i hear is meant to be very good. I personally use stockdale & leggo i frankston. Have not had 1 drama since i signed with them a few years back. From what i hear….stay away from MPRE for property management. Though other people in here might have different opinions.By the way…was speaking to another agent today fr…[Read more]
From the outset when u have a property manager you should stipulate that they must contact you before any work is carried out.Mine for instance gives me a call before any work needs to be done and i always go and investigate it to see what actually has to be done. Then i either fix it if i can or just tell the PM to organise to fix it if i havnt got time.
Monty,Just out of curiosity, are your loans interest only or P&I?Im doing a similar thing somewhere down on the Bass Coast in Vic with a couple of friends. But in this case we are building them ourselves. Two of us are plumbers and the other guy is a builder so hopefully we can build them cheap enough.
Yep down in funky town in fiston south. Been a frankstonite most of my life and always seen the potential..and there is more to come.Only have the 1 invest property in frankston but trying to work out how to get the next ten or even 1. All good and well using equity in our 2 houses but u still have to come up with any shortfall.But a…[Read more]
The only reason i thought of selling the F'ston south home because like i said we would be mortage free. We could live off my wifes wage easily and be able to bank $1000 (my wage) a week in savings to do something else in 6 months to a year.Hard decision, but i can see your points as well.Could we still borrow against out home in Frankston south…[Read more]
Hey LA,Went on the Frankston council website the other day, and from what i was able to read was that it has been approved and that they have just delayed the start date. Ill go back and have a read and try and put up a link.Another thing that is going ahead is the Frankston Bulky goods store which includes a super store of Freedom, Harvey…[Read more]
Im a tradie myself (dirty ol plumber). I think we have all had bad experiences from either side. From my experience in hiring tradies…i tend to get the old fashioned 3 quotes….but prob then i decide more on their personality. Sounds stupid and prob not much help but its worked for me so far.A few might ask first whether you want to pay ca…[Read more]
So you were speaking to my estate agent then foundsation? Nice guy isnt he?Still my opinion that you cant go wrong in funky town!But like everyone says…do your own research.
i was speaking to a couple of estate agents yesterday and each one of them said that after the freeway is finished it could add up to 30 – 40 % to prices in frankston. I personally dont think you can go wrong in frankston / frankston south.
Good luck with Frankston/Seaford area…….ive been trying for a couple of months now and everything is being snapped up. Everything in 'central' frankston that is.I turned my attention to Rosebud and picked up a great house 2 streets from the beach and 2 seconds away from the new Shopping Centre for around $220 and the block size was around…[Read more]
Thanks every1 for your opinions….i have 3 rental properties by myself at the moment but just thought if i start a seperate company/trust with a cpl of other friends it might increase our buying power to do bigger things in the future such as factories etc, and also i wont have all my eggs in the one basket.
I guess $ does come between friends…[Read more]
