    Can we sell with 8% Yield

    Thanks for all the ideas from you people on this forum. Our sole agent worked hard to get someone in to our property. There were lots of interest on our property, but getting someone to commit was another story. If a chance comes to sell we will probably use the same agent again. Will need a...

    Can we sell with 8% Yield

    Yes I have to agree Jonno. If we deal with only one or two people or so, we are possibly taking the competition away. At the end of the day when we put it with an agent and they are not interested any more (neighbour) because they dont want to pay the agent fee, they dont want it bad enough. As...

    Can we sell with 8% Yield

    Hi Johno As far as paying rates to council they are saying 150k. Nothing small or similar at the moment but there has been land for sale now and then. Most of the land for sale is normally bigger than ours (1050). There's not much vacant small land left in our street and a few bigger lots...

    Can we sell with 8% Yield

    Hi Scott He could be but He never made a firm offer at the time.No harm to ask to put down his best offer if still interested. I will get some more values from agents for now (rent or sell). If we have to we can rent it out for 3 yrs or so if we can find a good tenant. It may work out ok...
