Having joined somersoft only this year, I've learnt a bucketload on the things I didn't know I didn't know. This hasn't inspired me so much as left me questioning my actions thus far, and whether I'm really on the wrong path. I've bought a series of PPOR's, which I then simply move out of and keep. I've tried to buy in the same areas that other up-and-comers would be trying to get in to, and bought with the hope of CG rather than cash-flow - Cairns, LMR in MT G, and now 5kms from Bris CBD. There is a lot of talk about strategy, but property investing for me has been a long-term backup to give me wealth, mainly to pass on to my kids. My income is very good (but only recently), and well surpasses any CG that I will foreseeably ever make, and is not reasonably replaceable with a passive income (at least not with property). My parents were my influence (not successful), and watching them sell amazing properties for peanuts, just before each successive boom - most of our humble childhood homes would all be 1m+ now (Land in central Canberra, Glenhaven, Sydney, sub dividable acreage in Greenbank, QLD etc). So, is this a foolish strategy? That is, buying PPORs, then upgrading when it suits? I plan to supplement this with pure IP's when I can, as there is no need to upgrade the latest one for quite some time. THoughts? Is this a more Michael Yardney way of thinking (I think so..., but unintentionally), who has been criticised only this morning?
