    Hi All,

    I thought it was time to take the plunge and post my first thread!

    I stumbled across SS about 8 months ago and read everything, then took the step of signing up to PC when it started.

    I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone, these forums have honestly changed my life. I feel I have learnt so much gold that I couldn't get anywhere else.

    A bit about me... 28, married with 2 young kids, currently looking to purchase my first property which will be an IP (and thanks to you all, the first of MANY).

    I'll post up details when I get there, I can't wait!

    Chris

    Gday Chris, good to see you.
    Where abouts are you looking for your 1st IP? And what's your timeline?

    Welcome, Chris! Good to read that you've learned a lot through the forums. They've been a goldmine for me.

    +1 to @Azazel's question and also what sort of budget are you looking at?

    Always like to learn what other investors are up to.

    @The Y-man and @Gibson... thanks for the welcomes, happy to be here.

    @Azazel and @Steven Ryan... Looking at Illawarra and Newcastle regions, approx 400k spend. Undecided re house, townhouse, unit just going to go with whatever numbers stack up best.

    Cool. What's drawn you to the Illawarra and Newy regions?

    @Steven Ryan its within driving distance of Sydney and significantly cheaper than Sydney, also so I can check the property out before I buy it. Being the first one I would like to be able to have a look at it, future purchases happy to go interstate.
