Hi guys, Been reading through books and the forums here trying to educate myself more, lots of inspiration, and useful information. I don't have any IP mentors so learning through the site and other peoples experiences is great. I looking forward to taking part in the conversation. Originally I am from Auckland, but like most kiwis have a ton of family in Aus, many now Aussie citizens, I myself grew up in Brisbane. I have been living Thailand for the past 8 years, running my own online marketing agency, and doing various other entrepreneurial projects. I own a single property over here. NZ doesn't look like a viable investment for me at the moment, so I am looking to buy into northern Brisbane where i'm familiar with first. I found it was almost impossible to receive financing because of my situation, so I will be buying my first IP outright (who said immigrants never bring money into the country lol), and hopefully I can then use that equity and rental income to get financing for future property investments. Sorry bit of a long post, my end goal which i'm sure others have is, financial freedom. Thanks, Peter p.s. I saw other people had also read Rich Dad, Poor Dad does owning property through corporations like Richard suggests in the book viable in Aus? I'm trying to find more info on it, since I will be non-resident for tax purposes for at least the next few years until I decide to stay in Thailand or move back to Aus or Nz.
