    No other reason but curiosity, it is interesting to know the age group of the forumates. Please comment your journey in searching for your PPOR and property investing in general.

    Thanks Linda.

    I went thru search with "poll" as keyword. There are dozens of pages. Only went to the first couple of pages and thought " no poll" yet, so i thought "bugger", I just posted and bang you found the link for me. Thanks. Cheers

    I personally am glad to see there are a few oldies on here. I also suspect that there are a few older investors who do not participate in forums.

    Why is it "sad"?

    It shouldn't matter to anyone...half the folks here and over as SS - I never knew they were females for years until someone pointed it out - or they did.

    I could say it's sad that there aren't more "average job" people on this forum too, or more golf pros like me, or more nurses like my wife, or more teachers, or more garbage collectors - instead of just IT contractors, BA's and MB's.

    54 years old, married 23 years, 3 kids aged 14, 6 and 3.5, one cat, and one goldfish.

    *Bought first PPOR in 1985
    *Have had 5 PPoR's since then - two have been vacant land and later build, just bought property for future PPOR No.6 site (knock down and build).
    *Only ever bought one of our PPoR's for conscious investment purposes (to run a B&B) - the rest were "fall in love with property" scenarios. No timing, no research on comparables etc...liked the area, liked the house, liked the price, the Bank said yes.
    *Have owned 5 IP's starting from 2001 - but now down to one due to various reasons of life...own it outright.
    *Bought a business in 2009 - own it outright.
    *Currently renting until new PPoR build happens - likely date end of 2017...renting it out until then.

    Do you really find it sad?
    I wouldn't be sad in a class full of female nurses.
    I was sad in a class full of male IT nerds.

    I hear you, when I was younger I remember being really jealous of a friend going first year psychology and another doing nursing.:p

    Mr Angel works in IT all day. Last thing he wants to do when he gets home is to go onto another computer.

    Yeah, I had a few friends who studied nursing.
    I call them "sister" now ;)
