    Beautiful Tinnanbar bargain

    Tinnanbar auction result!!! An update on the Tinnanbar auction I attended yesterday. Over 30 people were there, although admittedly many were locals going for a sticky beak (about 20 permanents live there). It was a bank mortgagee sale, as some of you thought. First bid was $100,000 and it...

    Beautiful Tinnanbar bargain

    Tinnanbar auction Will I be attending the auction? Today combines a couple of my favourite things; real estate and Tinnanbar, so I wouldn't miss it. I'm sure it will be a bargain, as the owners tried to sell it unsuccessfully for ages themselves on realestate.com Started out about $1 million...

    Property managers entitled to sales commission?

    Thanks to everyone who responded to my question. I am waiting until tomorrow before contacting the tenants directly (didn't want to disturb their Easter). I suspect they won't be able to afford it, but thought it was a nice gesture, as they are good tenants. Will let you know how things work...

    Property managers entitled to sales commission?

    We want to sell our IP and intend to give the current tenants first option to buy. If the tenants did want to buy it are we under any obligation to pay the property managers any sales commission? They won't have anything to do with the actual sale but could argue they were the ones who found...

    Claiming interest on block of land

    I know I can claim interest charged on a loan to purchase land on which to build a rental property. Is there a time limit? If I owned the land for 4 years, then built an investment house, could I then claim all the interest on the loan from the date of purchase 4 years ago? The ATO website...

    Tinnanbar, Qld, anyone shed any light on this area please?

    Hey Ed, you sound like you speak from experience. Are you a secret Tinnabar land owner? You're right, there haven't been any houses built as yet on the old caravan park, even though a few of the blocks have sold. I think it could be more a case of people buying waterfront blocks there as an...

    Tinnanbar, Qld, anyone shed any light on this area please?

    Sorry, have been busy with work. 7 weeks deadline is no longer an issue as a rental house has been found, but I'll still keep it on realestate.com in case there is someone out there who might be interested. There have been lots of hits on the site and the agent has had a few people asking about...

    Waterfront block on Fraser Coast. SE Qld

    It's true I haven't sold my block as yet, but there has certainly been a great amount of interest created from this forum. Visits to the land listing on realestate.com have gone up significantly since my initial posting here on 18th January. At least now more people are aware of what a...

    Tinnanbar, Qld, anyone shed any light on this area please?

    Yes,it is more of a lifestyle, but I did say this in a previous post (see part of that post below). The number of holiday rental homes available seems to have dropped recently. Raine & Horne are no longer managing any holiday rentals, but there are still some privately owned ones. We purchased...

    Waterfront block on Fraser Coast. SE Qld

    Yes, it is dear, but goes on the valuation of the land, so it wasn't unexpected.

    Waterfront block on Fraser Coast. SE Qld

    Thanks for your input and questions. csc2 did you see I posted a LOT of general Tinnanbar info in reply to your ‘Where to buy’ query?I won’t repeat that information here, but will respond to your points.

    Decisions, decisions -what do people think?

    Thanks for your words of support and advice. Perhaps I have given the wrong impression of my son (lucky he isn't a member of the forum!!!!). He hasn't asked us to buy anything, in fact he wants to try and get a place to rent by himself. He does work part time and as we live in Gympie, moving...

    Tinnanbar, Qld, anyone shed any light on this area please?

    And another thing... Amenities are limited to 2 boat ramps, public toilets, waterfront park with gas b-b-cues and public phone, but hey, what else do you need in paradise?

    Tinnanbar, Qld, anyone shed any light on this area please?

    Do I know about Tinnanbar? I feel I could write a thesis on the place. First went there 1997 and fell in love with it. Have been hankering after a waterfront block there since 2000. We bought a duplex there (half holiday rental,other permanent) in Jan 2007, which was a little run down. Did...

    Waterfront block on Fraser Coast. SE Qld

    Hi As some of you will be aware, I have been tossing around whether to sell my dream block of land to buy an IP. Heart versus head. Decision has been made for me rather quickly, as uni son plus friends just got an eviction notice and have to be out by early March. They are finding it almost...

    Decisions, decisions -what do people think?

    Just finished talking to a dispirited son. Nothing to rent, so I am biting the bullet and having a go at selling the land, and buying a house (definitely in that order). Thought I might put the land details on the caveat emptor section, so if you're interested check it out there. Thanks so...
