This does seem like a good opportunity to introduce myself since I didn't on somersoft. I'm a 30 year old Perth guy who accidentally got hooked onto property investment while researching how to best use my First Home Buyer's Grant - that was about 4 years ago. I've picked up the following since then: Duplex pair (1x1s) in Hilton - Feb 2012 3x1 house in Langford - June 2012 Duplex pair (2x1s) in Pinjarra - May 2013 A 1960s church in the wheatbelt - September 2014 The church is more of a fun project rather than an IP to be honest - working on converting it to a residential dwelling. When I'm not scouring realestate.com.au listings, I work as a community legal centre lawyer doing a variety of generalist areas. Although somewhat controversially for this forum, one of my expert areas is residential tenancy law, haha. Unfortunately, giving free legal advice isn't a great business model, so I have to truck along on a community services salary - which partly motivates me to make some coin in property so I can continue doing what I love. I've made semi regular appearances at Perth meetups in the past, so hopefully I can meet some of you there too.
