    We still don't have an answer if it 'slightly' affects your credit rating! What a joke.

    What's Margaret Lomas telling people to buy?

    Is she a Guru, or do we avoid her recommendations? Wouldn't that be smart, buy a few properties in the suburb then tell your followers it's the bomb, then sell the property you just bought for a nice profit.

    To buy PPOR or IP?

    My goal is to build up a portfolio, I could keep renting at 500 PFN and invest the difference, or give it a shot buying the first property and living in it for 3 years before turning it into a IP. Decisions decisions.

    To buy PPOR or IP?

    This is my thinking, as I know from another post that buying a PPOR first instead of an IP can put you behind, but that calculation to me would appear to be long term, ie it's your PPOR for 30 years, not one that you bought, held for a year or two and then turned into an IP. With lenders...

    To buy PPOR or IP?

    I understand that rent money is not dead money, as long as you're investing the difference rather than squandering it, and I have fantastic security in knowing that I will never have to vacate this house until I post out of Perth if I don't want to. My partner and I earn around 95 k combined.

    To buy PPOR or IP?

    A quick hypothetical scenario. I am currently renting with my partner for 500 per fortnight in Spearwood in Perth. We would both like to start investing in our future. Living in WA as a home buyer you get 3000 dollars FHOG, and a 2000 dollar grant for things like conveyancing if the...

    Where to buy in Perth?

    What a brilliant tool, I'm using that now. Ugly house, but 700m2 R40 zoned makes this tempting. http://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-wa-spearwood-118900911 It has been on the market for 4 months with a couple of price drops, according to Investar it is undervalued, I would say most...

    Where to buy in Perth?

    Absolutley. I'm just lucky that I have a posting beyond a couple of years. I'll keep this thread updated as I go through the process. From the sums I've done I could buy up to 430 k pretty comfortably, this would lead to looking at houses about 450 k max. I would be able to service the...
