I stumbled across this goldmine of a forum about 2 weeks ago and have learnt a ton thanks to you knowledgeable bunch of people. It's really fueled my interest in building up my own property portfolio! About me: I'm in my mid-twenties (username may or may not have given it away already) and have been working aggressively since high school and have put away ~70k of savings. I'm living with my parents (paying mates rate rent) and happy to continue doing so for the next couple of years until its feasible to move out. I wasn't ready to purchase in the last three years so missed out on the big boom and now getting ready to get in the game with the property market finally slowing down a little. Have been looking around actively for the past 2 months. Objective: I want to Purchase my first IP so I can use it as foundation to buy a nicer PPOR in 3-5 years time. Hoping to contribute to this forum more and more as I go through my first property buying/owning experience!
