    Hi everyone:)

    I'm 27 and live in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
    I've been looking to invest in property for some time now and just stumbled upon PC and thank god i did. I feel like the website I've been on to do research are all trying to sell me a product or have them invest for me. I really want to be able to go through the whole process myself (with proper advice) rather than pay a fee to a company to invest for me.
    What has been holding me back from investing until now is similar to others that I'm educated enough in the matter and don't know what to buy and in what area.
    I'm enjoying reading the threads on this site seeing what other 'real' people are doing.

    I have around 100k to invest and am thinking of dividing it into two lots of 50k. Was going to invest 50k diversified in the stock market (blue chip) and invest the other 50k in my first property hoping to refinance in the right time and buy a second and continue to grow my property portfolio this way. It sounds like a great idea to me i'm just a little reluctant only because its a big step.

    Anyway, my intro rant is now over, hope you had a nice read. Looking forward to connecting to this lovely online community.

    Have a good one.

    Aaron.

    Welcome Aaron!

    Shame you only just posted this as us Melbourne folk had a meeting last night (by meeting it was more pub food and general chat).

    You will learn all you need from discussion with wise folk here ( on both property and share investing ). I don't have the time to follow multiple discussin forums and it's good to get wide-ranging discussion here.

    Howdy Aaron.

    You're in good company here. No one will openly try and flog you something here lol.

    I was a pretty much a lost cause before finding these forums (SS and PC).

    Luckily I found them just in time......otherwise who knows what I could have looked like lol.

    To carry on from the thread title.
    When you hear or use "mate" is it just for males? as a female are you offended if someone calls you mate?

    I think mate can mean women too. 'Fellas' definitely means men. 'Guys' denotes men but can include women too.

    Would the boys on the forum feel included by the greeting 'hey girls' or 'hi ladies'

    I dislike when girls call me 'mate', and I don't call them that.
    I'm trying to rid 'guys' from my venacular, although I admit it's entrenched and I say it to my boy and girl kids daily without inferring a gender

    Interesting. Do you mean girls call you mate ( as opposed to women calling you mate)?

    I'm probably ok with that but as long as a younger girl doesn't call me darl or love. That's for lovely elderly ladies ;)

    Welcome aaron, you'll do well sticking around here Mate!

    my 2cents to the debate going on above:
    Ive got a tenant sheila who calls me mate every time.
    Doesnt bother me in the slightest.
    Its a friendly term and so very Australian I cant believe some want it banished?
    In fact Im glad she considers me in such positive light.
    The feeling is mutual, so I call her mate as well.
    All happy, no probs at all.

    Welcome Aaron :)

    English as second language here...
    I though "mateee" oz style is not gender specific?
    I thought fellas are not gender specific either? :confused:

    Hey EVERYONE ... Guys and Gals.
    I was born and bread Australian and have always used 'guys' or 'fellas' for all sexes.
    If I offended you I sincerely apologise!
    Anyway, thanks for all the responses so far and look forward to what this site has to offer.
