    Hey all,

    Excited to be here. I found this site after a friend suggested I check out the old Somersoft forum (obviously he hadn't been on in a while)...which bought me here.

    A bit about me, I recently moved out of Sydney to Armidale NSW about 2 years ago. I run my own digital marketing company, which is now running along quite nicely. I use to work as a marketing manager for a large mortgage broking company when I was in Sydney, and always wanted to get into property investing once I had the cashflow.

    So that's why I'm here. Looking to invest, but I'm a complete newbie. I'm looking forward to lots of learning, and eventually start playing the investing game :)

    Hi Nathan

    Welcome aboard :)

    How have you found that transaction from big city living to Armidale?

    Sounds like your job prob allows you to work from anywhere right?

    Cheers

    Jamie

    Hi Nathan

    Welcome mate. Lovely town Armidale. One of the first towns to get the NBN if I remember correctly.

    Thanks guys,

    Sorry for the long wait in reply.

    @Jamie Moore To be honest it hasn't been too difficult. My wife and I travelled around Australia for about 5 months before moving here. After 5 months being away from the big smoke we knew we wanted somewhere more relaxed. There is (surprisingly enough) a lot going on here. The University here keeps things fresh, and lively. They are really making a push with local Entrepreneurial endevours as well which I'm excited about. Sydney is only a 1 hour flight away as well. I will admit though, I do miss randomly going to local meetups or events in Sydney...if I want to do anything I need to plan ahead.

    And @orangestreet , yep we have the NBN. When I visit family back in Sydney, I always forget how slow it is. The local council has recently had a shake up with the resent Council area changes. These guys are more tech savvy, which is why they are definitely pushing the online business space too :)

    Hi Nathan,
    I also made the move from Sydney to regional NSW (Orange) and love it. Property returns are much better and the cities are growing :) Armidale is a great city.

    What's the Armidale property market like? I heard it's not cheap there.
