    Hi All,

    A Brisbane based newbie to property here. I'm in my 30's, work in commercial construction, have just purchased my 1st property and it's my PPR at present. I've started out with a 1980's built 2 bed apartment in a block of 6 in Coorparoo.

    Looking to soak up the experience and advice from the members here and take the next step with my first investment property!

    Brisbane locals referring to Brisbane as Bris-vegas makes me exceptionally sad.

    Otherwise, welcome.

    Apologies for the Vegas faux pas, I'm a recent import from that state that can't win an Origin series...haven't reviewed the brissy rule book yet!

    I knew it!

    Rule Number 1. Don't ever call it Bris-vegas. Brisbanites will know you are an alien. ;)

    PS. Old 2 bed brick apartment in Coorparoo sounds good.

    Saying Brisbane is like Vegas is analogous to saying Adelaide is like Hong kong
