Hi All, We have finally(!) organised a property investor meeting for Hobart, including a seminar on property financing to be presented by Rolf Schaefer. The details are: Date: Sat, 5th May 2007 Time: 1:45pm for a 2pm start, till about 4pm Location: Huon Quays (see directions below) Room: On the first floor Parking: Should be enough parking near the building or in the carpark on the other side of railway tracks Cost: Free!! RSVP: Please reply in this thread, PM me or call my mobile (0410 105 726) - we need pretty firm numbers for catering. Rolf is a mortgage broker from Melbourne (and a valued contributor to the Somersoft, but only an occasional visitor here) and he has offered to fly over to give a presentation on property financing for us. The topics he will cover include: • Serviceability • LOC versus Offset • Cross-collateralisation • Mortgage Insurance • Low Doc / No Doc • Property development funding • Professional Packages • Timing / Sequencing • Q&A The presentation will take about 2 hours, with a break for coffee and cake (home made vanilla slice I'm told - yum!) and time for questions. As well as a chance to learn something from Rolf it's a great opportunity to meet fellow investors face to face. Because of the lack of numbers in Tassie it's often hard to organise meetings like this, so please make the most of this opportunity. For those of you outside the Hobart region it would be great if you could make the drive down (or up) for the afternoon. Please PM or call me if you need further information. John. Directions to Huon Quays (see attached map): Heading towards the Regatta Pavillion (grandstand) at the Domain, turn left over the train tracks and follow the road to the big white weatherboard building. This is Huon Quays. As you go through the gate there are stairs around to the left and we will be on the first floor. Hopefully we can put up signs to point you in the right direction.
