Hi all, I'm very pleased to have just joined investEd! I've been looking around for a few weeks now, and have more than gained from the things I've read, so thought its time I could potentially give something back (and actually ask some questions). I'm 25, and my partner and I are looking at getting / continuing into investing in property reasonably aggresively. I'm an Engineer by trade, but now focus on process improvement, etc while at work, and cars, handy-man jobs and investing when at home. I've never written on a forum, but never had the want / need to. Seeing all the useful information and informative members on this one really inspired me - can't wait to expand my knowledge in all things investing! When I focus on things, I cant stop myself knowing all the ins-and-outs of it, which is precisely what I've done with investing over the last 2 months. My accountant even offered me a job (jokingly, but maybe not...). Anyway, until recently, we had our PPOR only - we've had it a few years and paid a chunk off. Just bought an IP with IO loan, used LOC against our house to do this, converted PPOR loan to IO with offset (as will one day be an IP), and now realise we can get another IP. So here we go! Anyway, I'd like to describe what we've done in a bit more detail and see what useful input you all may have about our strategy - but where should I do that? In this thread? (It's fantastic finding a group of people to bounce ideas off - none of my mates are in our situation / mindset, so I've no-one to discuss with). One question I have - why do people talk about keeping records of what costs are for what IP? Is it only useful for if you're selling the IP? Cheers, Red.
