    Hi Everyone, I was trying to resist my SS addiction but I am unable to so here I am. I have been lurking for a while but starting to talk to the screen so I figured I better join in. For those who don't know me from SS I am a Caboolture/Morayfield property investor, mostly in the bottom quarter of the market. Simon, I love the business section- great idea!

    Hi Joan. I toyed with the idea of breaking my SS addiction, but told myself I needed to join immediately or someone could take my name :D.

    I'm just as addicted to this new forum ;).

    I'm very glad you joined.

    So lovely to be in this thread with some of the lovely ladies of SS/PC. I need a hug. The men-folk and their aggression have got me pulling my hair out today!

    Welcome Joan,:)

    How are you finding the market up that way?

    I've been looking anywhere from the Sunshine Coast down to Southside Brisbane. I grew up on the Sunny coast so know the area well. Are you currently investing in property up your way?

    The market here is improving and values are starting to get close to pre GFC amounts (thank God!!). We have enough houses so aren't planning to buy anymore.

    Hi CU, I actually got half way through a business law degree in my mis-spent youth but left uni to pay 18% on our first house and have babies.

    Hehe, nice one. I do that with the TV sometimes.

    I've got a couple of friends who have properties there, is there much happening there with the ripple effect from Brisbane?

    Welcome to the forums. Forum addiction is like coffee addition, it is socially acceptable.

    Probably the better choice (coming from a lawyer).

    Now you tell me! What about buying the house and having babies and then becoming a lawyer?

    It's never too late! Law is one of the few professions where it is an advantage to be a bit older when you practice.

    Now that is a classic. I really must watch more Rumpole. I'd like to say I've lived it but regrettably suburban practice is not as glamorous as you would think.

    That's a pretty sweet beard you're rocking there, Joan and I don't even like beards.
