    Well, in all honesty I don't mind whether we do a rehearsal or not – It's the honeymoon I'm looking forward to!

    6 weeks off from the banking world may just prove too tempting by the way… Anyone got any bright ideas for an alternative career path where I can get back up to 6 figures with a couple of years? (And yes, I will accept property investor as a suggestion )

    D – With the similar investment interests and goals that you and your lesser half have, it was always going to be a match made in heaven!

    I'm already number 3 – Wesley ranks slightly ahead of me in the household rankings (our dog!)

    As an update guys,

    There are now over 50 people on the mailing list, and our first two meetings both had in excess of 15 attendees.

    With consistent attendance like this, I’m sure all of our future meetings will be successful.

    I’m trying to get a good theme going for the next catch up, so if you have any thoughts please email them through.

    Once again if you’re keen to join the group, or if you’re already a member and you wish to assist in running the group meetings (which at 50 members is starting to almost become enough for one person) please let me know at *removed*

    Cheers,

    .

    I think I overheard DWolfe saying that she wanted to take us all through one of their development projects. Something about a 3 unit site at Box Hill?

    LOL!!!!!!!

    Yeah Right! I think my poor poor tenants would have a fit!!! 50 people would fill a coach haha!

    Here's the link, enjoy the virtual development. http://www.realestate.com.au/cgi-bin/rsearch?a=o&id=404391324&f=10&p=10&t=ren&ty=&fmt=&header=&cc=&c=6709305&s=vic&tm=1268739528.

    Ugly letter boxes are gone, I REPEAT GONE! At least now with some other properties on at higher prices we should be able to get some good applications. BTW the red colour is called HOT LIPS !

    Hey YI you can come shopping with me (property shopping of course not for hats!) if your wife doesn't mind you having some guy time after your honeymoon!

    Haha, I thought you might like that suggestion D

    I do most of my shopping online, but need to get out and pound the pavement more often, so lets do it!

    I'd be up for drive out West even if you're interested – It seems to have the only cheap property within 30 mins of the city these days – Surely not for too much longer.

    I'll PM you the property i'm looking at right now too… I need someone to bid for me as I'll be in the U.S when the auction is on too – Want to go to auction with my cheque book for me? (Just don't go to any other auctions – lol)

    I guess google earth is so good now you practically can see the people on the streets, YI. Gotta shop in your car and on your feet a bit more. All well and good to see the map, but………………………………………………..

    How do you know what the people living there are like? Are there stacks of mothers pushing prams or heaps of oldies? Is there graffiti? What are the houses like in other parts of town? What are the streets like rough or looked after? Are there groups of local 'chaps' standing around looking for trouble? What is the condition of the shops? Is there new building going on and what is it? There is a lot you can find out on the net but it is great to confirm things with your eyes and ears and completely understand where you are investing. (Yes I know if you invest in your local area you will know all this ;)

    Nothing beats a drive around town. i have bought property sight unseen but I have seen the town.

    Vroom, Vroom gotta go for a spin to the other (read cheaper) side of town.

    I definitely agree. There's only so much info you can gather about a place without actually being there.

    Schedule it in for Late April, early May
