G'day everyone, I've signed up to PC because I'm looking to start in the property market. I'm 27 and have finally decided on my career path. I'm in my first year of an Electrician apprenticeship with the state power distributor. My partner and I do like the north side of Brisbane. My job is based on the north side (at the moment I'm working out of Caboolture). My partner is a school teacher and works about 2 hours northwest of Brisbane. She is in teacher accomodation and returns for the weekend. We are beginning to look for our first home with the chance it will become an IP, depending on where the jobs are at the end of my apprenticeship in 3.5 years time. At the moment we rent in Mitchelton and would like a place in this area (Keperra looks good), however our budget ($400k) means we are looking further out (Kallangur) at the moment. I'm looking forward to filling my spare time with open houses, and reading PC.
