    Hi to All,
    Early forties with young and growing family in lovely Perth Hills PPoR.
    Previous somersoft member returned seeking value adding ideas to add to diminishing mining income!
    Previous experience: Build and sell 4x villas in Midland WA. Build industrial units in Ravensthorpe WA. Buy off the plan canal block in Exmouth WA.Not quite Reno, but tidy up of current PPoR.
    Enjoying reading PC posts and feel its a credit to all involved regarding the transition from SS to PC-well done. The balance of helpful insights/experience with advertising seems just right.
    All the best!

    Welcome to PC!

    What type of returns have you got on your projects to date? What's the strategy moving forward?

    Hi, and welcome (back) :)

    How's the Exmouth property done for you? Have prices there held up recently?

    That's a shame - I guess worst case it's a nice holiday home? Air BnB? It's beautiful up there.

    Sounds like a good idea to keep an eye on it.
    Apparently it's still going down.
