    Hi everyone,

    Been on Somersoft for a while, decided to join this forum as well.

    Based in Sydney Northern Beaches.

    Preparing to buy first IP in the next couple of weeks.

    Also have my eye on a little block of land to build second IP.

    Thinking about getting into shares in a few years, not ready just yet.

    That's it for now.

    Cheers, Shadow.

    Welcome Shadow!

    So where are you buying? On Michael's turf on the Northern Beaches?

    Interested to hear the details... :)

    Thanks for the welcome everybody!

    Hi Jacque, yes planning to buy in the Northern Beaches. I have an offer in on a house in Bilgola, and also looking at a block of land to build on elsewhere in the Pittwater area. Good capital growth is forecast for this part of the world over the next few years, so I'm looking forward to building my portfolio!

    Cheers, Shadow.

    Ah, such sweet words to soothe the savage mind on a day like today when the ASX is going to test my nerves. ;)

    But I think you're right, and if you are I'll be very pleased indeed. Currently all my eggs are in two baskets and those two baskets are both on the Northern Beaches! :D If Mona Vale comes off as planned then I can very conceivably see those three units being worth a million each in a few years time. That on a $1.8M all in development cost makes for a nice little margin for a first off... And I won't even mention the potential of my 1600m2 sub-tropical rainforest block with views which is my Nth Narra PPOR ;)

    Welcome again mate and look forward to hearing more about your strategy and how you're implementing it.

    Cheers,
    Michael.

    Nice part of the world- Bilgola. Didn't happen to be on the Serpentine with ocean views, did it? ;) If so, then sign me up for a visit soon :D
