Hi All, just introducing myself, a friend put me on to this site. I was lucky enough to buy 6 years ago and take advantage of the Government rebate on new homes which covered our LMI as we didn't have a deposit. I was always of the view "Why buy a house when I can rent for so much less". Well I have to say buying was quite simply the best decision I made, our growth is around 70% and I am blown away by this. Now it is time for me to start thinking about investing, I am 40 years old now and there is no way i am planning on working for another 30 years . I look forward to chatting with you all in the near future.
