@moderator- please don't move this to the misc forum, it's only relevant to overseas deals enthusiasts
What's that about ?
There's actually a pic attached, but for some reason it doesn't show…not sure if it's the new website or me, one of us is having a blond moment?..trying again…
No, it's not you, I have been trying to post pics for a few weeks but to no avail.
I also lost the Ziv family photo album in the change over, that took me about 4 attempts to get that to attach and post.
C'mon Steve, forget going to America and give us some pics action.

What my friends thing I do
What I really do…….
One property at a time, mate. once you have enough stable income to diversify and take on some risk, you can make some serious hyper-jumps (and hyper-falls, but then you can handle them).emma171Participant@emma171Join Date: 2011Post Count: 161
So so so so so true…. why I try to keep it to specific projects than throwing my entire life away on paperwork….
I know where you're coming from, most people hate it lol, but, truth be told, I enjoy the deal mining, spread-sheeting, negotiation, multiple portfolio management etc etc far more than the hands-on walking, inspecting, interviewing tenants, contractors, renovators, PMs, etc etc…that's one of the reasons Japan appeals to me so much- you can actually do it safely and remotely there, and the HOAs (housing companies, as they're called there) actually do their jobs properly.
I've got a good super-reliable and professional team on the ground, which leaves me free to focus on the "virtual" side of the portfolios- and I really do not need to attend in person at all. In fact, because we only source tenanted properties (unless specifically instructed otherwise), and the law in Japan forbids anyone from entering a property when it's tenanted, all I can do when I do attend in person is get a feel for the area and the building, surrounds, etc- which I only need to do when I expand to new areas or show investors around. I actually thrive in that "paperwork/email/Skype/phone" environment, and it enables me to provide better service to a large number of clients at any given moment. That, and the best Japanese partner anyone could hope for
Of course, when I'm shopping for personal use or holiday let properties things are totally different. Then I buy vacant and do visit in person, more than once, supervise spruces if required, etc etc. Wouldn't have it any other way.
Your picture is now up !
Thanks team admin and team software engineers for making the pictures thing happen.
YOU ROCK !
You can go and play in the US now Steve……. go on off you go.
Not so fast, he still needs to sort the signature not appearing on new posts things. My poor little fingers have had enough copy and pasting to last them three lifetimes…Dubstep wrote:
