We have finally narrowed down our strategy (for those who love that buzz word ), suburb selection (selected North Brisbane suburbs) and finance pre-approval but seem to be hitting roadblocks with someone to help us! Being a new investor I thought it best to contact a few local BA's to help us but so far we haven't had anyone really keen to respond to our queries. Perhaps our budget is a bit low! It's got me thinking though perhaps I should save the few thousand k and do it ourselves. Getting up there isn't easy but could be done. Basically I'm after anyone newbie investors that have done an interstate purchase recently and could give their opinion as to whether they wished/or did have professional assistance.
