    To make our money work for us!!

    Yes...I’m new. I’m from the greater Brisbane area and work in HR - specialising in finance (Banking & general insurance) and retail. My partner is a primary school teacher. We have 2 kids with our youngest about to go to school, our crippling daycare costs have now come to an end so we are excited to make good use of the money we used to spend on daycare. We are looking to start with a solid investment property and then maybe another, before branching into ETFs or similar. Looking forward to joining into some robust and informative threads!

    look outside the 'Greater Brisbane area ,

    i WAS looking ( but not now ) at regional QLD towns , like Maryborough and Gladstone but also in similar ares in South Australia ( looking for a low entry price but increased rental demand when the economy improves )

    take care .. but please research for yourself

    since the powers that be don't like investors ( and forget they vote as well ) try not to borrow to acquire that property .. and screw up the system they think they can control
