Hello all I joined Somersoft a couple of years ago and have found it a fantastic resource. Thanks to all of you who give your time and experience to the forums. I've been a silent reader because I'm still a newbie with more questions than answers. I only have a couple of local investment properties but they are doing well. One is an inner west terrace and the other is an apartment in southwest Sydney. I've just posted my first query in search of a builder/carpenter since the person who has done this sort of work for me in the past isn't available. Not surprising, given the time of year. I couldn't think of a better place to come than here for recommendations. I hope to be more active in the future.
