Hi all, Long time lurker and first time poster here. My wife and I have been thinking of investing in property for the last 1.5 - 2 years and finally got to the point of acting in the last few months. Big thanks to @Michael_X (who is an old friend) for encouraging us along the way, and for all of you who have helped out just by posting things we have read. The biggest encouragement to me has been seeing the mindset of everyone here. This week has been a big one for me in remembering how important goals and mindset are. I've spoken to a few people that just don't understand what we are trying to do, and doubt our decisions, but I am encouraged every time I read stories on here to keep plugging away. Thanks again!
