    Hello everyone,

    Happy New Year!

    I'm a long time stalker of SS and more recently PC too. I thought I'd introduce myself as I think I have recently built up enough knowledge (stumbling as it may be) and courage to buy my first IP.

    I'm 26 and just recently moved to Perth for work. I'm really enjoying the life style over here! Especially all the small pubs and cafes.

    I purchased my first property (PPOR) in Brisbane 3 years ago with my sister, It's on a double block so we hope to develop it one day, however for now my parents live it while they build their new home.

    For now though, I'm looking in brisbane (Northside) for my first IP, due to not knowing the Perth market very well, so I think it's a safer option.

    Thank you all for your help so far it has been greatly appreciated!

    G'day flying spanner. Welcome aboard

    (don't tell the locals your from over east,they're not fans over here :p)

    I'm not too familiar with wa myself but the locals here are a great bunch. Be sure to check out the Perth threads and also come along to a meet up. Been trying to get them monthly at varying times for whoever can make it.

    What work brought you over here?

    For those in the industry the name is a dead give away. I'm an aircraft engineer. :) I won't disclose which company for, as I don't want PMs asking why their plane is delayed .

    I noticed the warm welcome when I started my new job, with respect to being an east coaster, there is plenty of banter.

    As for Perth meet ups, I'm always keen to meet new people despite being an introvert. So having common interests in property will make it easier.
