    Setup for business.

    We are looking at buying a business and we will need to have a storage unit. What would be the best way to set this up? Of course I will speak to my accountant if it looks like it's viable (still waiting on figures). Assuming we buy the business in a company name (yet to speak to...

    Is creative play dead?

    I think it's a dying art sadly. When I started teaching Kindergarten (Year 1 in some states)- first year of formal schooling was play based. Now there's no time. Even Preschools have a focus on teaching sounds etc. Children do not know how to play! It's difficult to get kids to play...

    Hi, when I started I ticked that I'd pay the council rates, water, strata. But every 3 months it's a big job to pay them all now and I'm over it. Plus I travel a lot and have to orgainse it if I'm away when they arrive. How many people get there's paid by their PM? Do they charge for...

    Moving RE prices.

    Hi, I was just browsing to get a feel for where my properties stand in relation to price. Looked up Blacktown and saw a unit similar to mine for $309K. I thought "WHAT, that's what I paid 3 years ago". Then I realised it was $309K. I paid $209K. :D Hope the others are that good.

    Weird open homes

    I just went to an open home (price guide $720K+). There was about 3 loves of bread buttered and about 2kg of sliced meat sitting on the kitchen bench. And the toilet had obviously JUST been used. :( Disgusting. Why would you have an open home and not clean up? Anyone else seen strange things...

    Is it worth the hassle to downgrade?

    We are nearing retirement and our idea is to downsize our PPOR and sell one investment property to pay down some loans. I will go part time in 1-2 years. Hubby has about 3-4 years until he'll retire. Selling the investment property will give us $20,000 a year in our pocket (less interest-...
