Hi guys, I'm new here. I'm newly married and have had some luck with land and now own a block outright and have 40k in the bank. I don't have any debt what so ever. My wife isn't working at the moment so I am supporting us both. I'm totally happy with getting this far, but I'll need to turn everything into a house somehow over the next five years. Any ideas for strategies? I'm not feeling very confident about the real estate market at the moment, and shares are a bit volatile and - I just don't know enough about them yet. So while I'm sitting idle I have put the 40k into a Usaver account. We're renting at the moment but the rent is VERY cheap (we've been lucky). There really is no rush to buy a house. Anyway...I'd love to hear some thoughts... What would you do in this situation? Hope you're all having a nice one! \ H.
