been reading this for the past couple of weeks, great info
I'm a soldier based in Townsville and own a house worth about $330000 market value and have low $200000 left on it.
I want to start an IP and in July my partner and I will have access to the new defence home owner assistance scheme
Does anyone know generally how to utilise this to our advantage and;
does anyone know of any good financial advisers/planners in Townsville

I'm based in Perth, I've just been told by my chain that DHOAS has been put on hold. Rudd govt. wants to review it, no implementation date has been given. I'm sure you'll be waiting out like heaps of us. Will be interesting to see what the current government puts on the table.

I'm in Darwin, i got the old $80g loan. was very interested, try this website. it tells you all about the new scheme.
I haven't looked at it for a while but it really adds up if you have been os for over 6 months for warlike service. and really who hasn't been in the last few years.Dave LamariMember@dave-lamariJoin Date: 2008Post Count: 1
I know it has been some time since you posted here, but I have just come across your post while trying to source some more info on the DHOAS for myself (and clients).
I am a Mortgage Broker in Townsville and, if you are interested, I am happy to chew the fat with you about the scheme and investing in general. I run the broking business my self and invest as well and would like to share with you my thoughts and experiences investing and on the chances of getting 'property investment advise' from Financial Advisors.
