Here's a bit of a laugh for everyone. I bought Building Wealth... only to discover that it promoted neg. gearing, and being the know-it-all that I was at the time regarding RE with my whole two months of reading, thought I knew it all, and neg gearing was the most ridiculous thing I'd ever heard of, me - neg. gear? Never! To top it off, anyone that did neg. gear was an idiot...(It was only after discovering this site that I realised who the idiot was...) Anyway, I've just started reading the book, and it's great! Not convinced that neg. gearing is the way to go, but now I've opened my mind enough to the point that I feel that it might be a viable part of my investment plan one day, if the opportunity that presents itself is worthy. Anyway, thanks Jan and everyone that posts here for opening my mind and I'll see you in IP land very soon!
