    Hi guys,

    Joining this forum recommended by a friend for its friendly chat and knowledge.

    We just sold an investment property a few months ago (hopefully at its peak, but you never know, hard to time), so now seeking to get back into the property side of things in search for potentially a smaller investment apartment.

    A bit about me: I help SME business owners to maximise their points to travel. Along the lines of a frequent flyer guy - the media coined a term for me "The Points Whisperer". My business is all about enjoying the journey of life and having bit of fun, getting to travel around lot in first & business class and helping others to experience the same joy. (www.iflyflat.com.au)

    Would love to contribute where I can and share the knowledge.
    Look forward to learning and chatting soon.:)
    Steve

    Welcome @iflyflat. There was a discussion about points just the other day here.

    Where are you looking at buying your next property?

    Hi - Thanks for the welcome.

    Maybe somewhere along a public transport corridor, and older style apartment (as the new ones are either too pricey, or seem to have construction quality issues)

    But really just tipping my toe in. No timeframe.

    What's the points conversation about?

    Along a transport corridor and older style sound good.

    Any start or city in particular?

    Hi,
    I think sticking with Sydney as that's where I live.

    I am curious why you would be looking at investing where you live (which you believe is at its peak), rather than where you see growth potential?
