    Hi everyone,

    I'm a long time follower of the Somersoft and PropertyChat forum and was riding on a friend's coattails for a while to learn the ropes. Found this to be a great experience and a fast-tracked way into property investment. Without him, I would never have bought my first property at the start of the GFC :)

    While I thought I 'knew it all' after the first purchase, I learned quickly that I didn't and that it was much more about finance than I initially realised.

    I now own a few properties across a number of states and while 'buy and hold' is my main strategy, I did sell one previously and found it to be a very interesting experience to be on the 'other side'.

    I consider myself quite risk averse and have therefore been playing in the market of up to ~$400k.

    Just recently I moved to VIC and plan on actively participating in this forum and pursuing more properties.

    Cheers,

    Rumpel

    Thanks guys.

    @Steven Ryan - probably in about 6-9 months. I'm waiting to see what the RBA is going to do and which political party ends up steering the ship for a bit.

    Hi @Rumpelstilzli
    Welcome to the forum.
    If you are interested in getting to know some of us a bit better, we regularly have a bit of a get together. Melbourne East group meets on the 2nd tuesday each month at a suburban pub, the next one will be on 14th June, probably in Fairfield. Melbourne West meet at different times.
    Full details are posted here Networking & Meetups

    There is no cost (other than optional meal or drink) and no agenda, just come along and chat to other property people.
