I have clueless parents. (Mother more than father to be honest) I'm sorry, but I have to say it. I tell them I plan to buy a property in Brisbane. This is my mum's response: "Lyn don't buy house that far away because if it needs work you are not there to organise workman there." I am so sick and tired of my mum... My mum was even saying, why do you want to buy a third/4th property? Isn't what you have enough? You should be humble.... You should not do this and that.... Anyway, I bought the last one, doing incredibly well on airbnb, but all the grief I go through with my mum... Anyway, so sick of her comments on my Facebook I defriended her, but she stalks me all the time. Small minded mindset. I dunno... Partner is also very anti investment, won't invest..... I've done it the tough way by myself, it has worked out (finally) but I'm sure it could have been sped up a lot if I had more partner support! (He's on a very high income). I'd probably have 10 plus houses by now, properties in Lane cove, Doonside, Lavender Bay.... All hampered by not being able to get finance.
