Hi I didn't intentionally set out to be a property investor but circumstances happened and now i have 3 properties and my partner has 1. I earn less than $30k a year and he earns $130k. His property is a new purchase and for the first year will be a owner occupied then go to an IP for tax purposes. I live in one of mine. By the end of the year we will live together in one of them. I guess my first question is where should i start educating myself on what I've gotten myself into....other than this forum? Any books you highly recommend? Seminars? Another question is, is there such a thing as free financial advice? I worry that any financial advisor is going to try and sell me something when all i want is to sort out my current situation to my best advantage. I also need a tax agent on the Gold Coast so any recommendations there would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
