    Hello,

    Fairly new here. I signed up a couple of weeks ago and have been reading here and there since. I'm mid-forties and have realised that my super won't keep me going for too long after 'retirement' so I need to create some wealth.

    My primary interest at this stage is to purchase some investment properties - starting with one this year and use the increasing equity in it and our residence to purchase more in the future. My current thinking is to purchase something like 4 properties in 8 years.

    Anyway, enough about me for now.

    See you around the forums.

    Regards, Gary

    Hi Gary

    Welcome to InvestEd!
    So where are you looking to invest? I notice you're regional, so assuming you'll start in your own backyard?

    Jacque,

    We've tossed up on where to start and have actually decided on Brisbane in the growth corridor to Ipswich.

    We're now in the New England area but moved here from your neck of the woods in the Hills area about 18 months ago.

    We thought about starting in Tamworth or Armidale but some of what we've been reading suggest better capital growth in the capitals.

    Regards, Gary
