Hi to all. I am an "adult apprentice" in the investment area - still in my first year and just in research mode. I live and work in Karratha, WA and feel that the property micro climate up here may be hot in more than one way. Although property prices are extraordinarily high for a regional area, demand and high rental prices are achieving up to 10% ROI if the statements made by local Real Estate companies is in anyway accurate. My task for the next few months is to research this using tools and information I will learn from this site and other sources. I have good income potential for the next few years and am looking for an investment/s to take me to the end of my working life, approx 15 years. cheers Rags (2riches will come).
