    Interest in Advance Rate worse then Variable!!

    I've been quoted 4.4% as me Interest in advance for the next Financial year. That's .2 worse than my variable. Just checking that it's the going rate with the SS team. I've got to do it this year as I had a CGT event. The rate seems a little soft. I'm also a bit worried about what rate and IO...

    Will Brisbane outperform Sydney over the next 12 months?

    I saw this auction today It went for $2.18mill. That's some good dollars in Bris even in one of the tightest held locals. I reckon 18 months ago might have got $1.7mill (guess). This property would have had flooding within...

    Does Brisbane still stack up?

    These threads are very interesting to me as you could bag or love any city market in Aus depending on your point of view. Try justifying the current Sydney market as an investor!!! In the end a boom involves exuberance that you can't comprehend until it's happening. You've got to be in it to win...

    sceptical about QLD

    Floods effect a tiny percentage of properties in SE QLD, hail storms happen all over Aus. We don't get the fires of NSW. The media loves to hype a natural disaster they've got a lot of time to fill

    Upcoming Brisbane Storm

    Do you think BOM would better serve us by talking up the best case scenario. Maybe they could tell us the least rainfall that might fall or the weakest wind strength, now that would be helpful! Never been much for ranting but Jerry you've got me going.

    Upcoming Brisbane Storm

    In the last three years we've had two "epic" storms and an ex cyclone tomorrow. The hail storm caused over $180k damage to one of my commercial properties. It's still covered in 400 square meters of plastic tarps with ropes holding them down, no of which will benefit from strong winds and...
