Hi all, I've been renting out (I'm the Landlord not using a real estate agent) a 2 bedroom unit for about 5 years now. My wife and I also built a 3 bedroom house which we lived in for 2 years until the house outgrew our little family (2 boys). So we have been renting that out for 2.5 years and we would love to get another investment property but due to serviceability we can't until my wife is working again. I don't understand that as I'm on a good income and both properties are positively geared. In the meantime I just want to learn as much as I can and contribute when I have the time My father-in-law is my mentor as he has 10 properties and retired before he hit 60. My goal is to semi-retire by 50 but even by 60 would be great. Looking forward to chatting with you all.
