Hi all. I'm glad to have found you. I live (rent) and work in Melbourne and I have an IP in country VIC. I bought it 5 years ago and through dumb luck it's doing ok... Not great, but ok. It's cash flow neutral but only because I have dumped extra money in its offset account. What is exciting me about it though is that it's a 1100m2 corner block that's screaming out for something to be built on the back of it. I've even been lucky enough that the local council have sealed the road along side of the block. The problem is that I know nothing about building and very little about investing. I'm the kind of person that does hours of research even before buying a toaster, so needless to say that the thought of signing contracts for a building project that I know nothing about is a wee bit daunting and stressful. I hope to learn some things from this forum so that I can get on the right track. Dumb questions to follow.
