    Hi everyone,

    I used to be on Somersoft years ago. Just joined on here this morning to read and learn about investing, areas, strategy etc.

    I "fell" into having an investment property by accident. I bought a PPOR, a basic 2br unit in Dulwich Hill, in Sydney's inner west, in 2007. A few years later, I got married and it was too small for me and hubby. We bought a house further out but kept the unit. Ta-dah! We now have an IP. Luckily for us, Dulwich Hill did well, and its always been rented out. :)

    We are looking for another IP, possibly in Brisbane or surrounding areas, and thought I better do some reading and learning. Hope to learn from the collective wisdom here. Happy to share any useful info I may have about the Inner West (Sydney) if it will help someone.

    Oh, and would love it if we could get out of the ratrace, work part-time in the future and spend more time with the family (2 year old).

    Cheers!

    Welcome to PC, Nightowl. You did well by keeping the unit back then :)
