    Retired folk, care to share with us?

    Y-man, thanks for sharing your story, it sounds like you were very very leveraged and double dipping, I believe margin loans are for the muppets. The main lenders charge about 9-10% currently on these accounts, unless you have a cyrstal ball and can pick em well its very risky to buy stocks...

    MCC Membership

    MCC Membership

    Gordon, thanks for the comments, yes i'm aware that members kids are not automatically granted membership but i'm sure a lot of them are on the list soon as. Yes i know there's no means or class test to get in, but just it appears that there is effectively discrimination against you in the...

    MCC Membership

    Rixter correct, this is an options but i'm also told/researched that: You can only access something like a maximum of 6 times a year in the MCG with a WACA membership The WACA now has a waiting list but i believe its not a very long wait. You are also supposedly required to show proof...

    homeground services?

    Is it a good idea to rent your property to a housing agency, its likely to be tenanted by homeless or refugees and they may be harder on the property but you are dealing with a government organisation rather than individual tenants. They are offering 3month up front etc, good idea or...

    Feedback on Oak Park, VIC property

    $250 pw for 480K property is a shocking bad yield, nice to have 700m2; especially for a suburb only 12k from cbd backing onto railway line is not good. you would be lucky to get 2 townhouses and a unit on 700 i guess it costs 15-20k to knock and probably 150-200 to build the townhouses...

    New Purchase in Melbourne

    In my opinion: Dont trust a single word the agent tells you and never give away anything to him either, they represent their client i.e. the vendor. The agent is entitled to do what he wants, if you play games with dirt you end up with crud all over your hands
