I'm a "soon to be made redundant" Contract Administrator/Project Officer. I've joined this group and commenced study in property investment as it's an area I've wanted to move into for years. And now's the time to bite the bullet and get out of my salaried comfort zone and use property as the vehicle to reach my goal of financial independence. My initial strategy is flipping in order to get the capital behind me before moving onto a buy and hold strategy to earn an income. I'm looking forward to all the intelligent advice I'm going to obtain from the many experienced and knowledgeable people in this group. Thanks for the add ... I'm feeling positive about the future (today) but, by all means, advise away if I need redirecting. Cheers.
