    End of an Era

    And I just want to add, when I joined up in 2008 I got a lot of support and encouragement and reading all the inspiring stories/experiences really made me believe that this was possible for me. If it were 2008 now and you'd have told me that I'd own 3 properties and have x amount in my bank...

    Perth Property Market updates

    I forgot to add, mine was a break lease too so the tenant has to keep paying until June 30 if I don't manage to secure someone before then. I'm confident I'll attract someone. I have it priced right now. I've met the market.
