    Hi everyone,

    I've just stumbled across this forum and boy what a gem.

    I'm 29, getting married in October and looking to buy with my partner, our first property. Our short term goal is to achieve 1M in assests in 2 years, through property and renovating. I ordered some books (recommended on the book thread- Thanks!) to help my get my mindset right and start our journey to an early retirement!

    Other interests I have are sports, real and fantasy - Reigning 2-time champion!. Traveling - really caught the travel bug the last couple of years, camping and generally being outdoors.

    Looking forward to contributing to this fine community :)

    David,

    *rubs hands together* Fresh blood :D

    Welcome David! Congrats on the forthcoming marriage.

    I just hit 30. Seems to be a LOT of us around this age. Lots of people to inspire and motivate.

    So what are you looking at for IP1 and when do you aim to buy it?

    Thanks Steven, dont congraulate me yet.. there's still time for her to leave me :eek:

    We are actively looking for IP1 now before it hits the spring market. We are looking for a IP with good CG (seems like most suburbs atm) in Melbourne. For IP2/3 we are looking to secure something with good yield and positively geared to help with CF.

    You wouldnt happen to be the same Steven Ryan from TUGTUR course?
