Hi All, I am very fortunate/blessed to have sold my business in Auckland for a reasonable sum, paying off the mortgage on a 1.3M house, and giving me a bit left over. My family and I's dream, is to buy a catamaran sailboat and sail off into the sunset. I have 3 primary school kids, so now (in the next 12 months or so) be a good time to consider this. I am thinking that a move to Brisbane, with lower than usual house price avg would allow me to purchase a home and aloe afford a decent boat, without going into debt. I have a few small commercial syndicate investments giving a small return. However, I want to try to structure this, so that I am able to get a return on the house while I am away on the ocean. I am considering an apartment, but my wife doesn't like not having land (fair enough too). I guess we would be looking at around 750K on a house? Is airbnb a valid option these days for getting a return, or has that jumped the shark? I am attracted to the fact that I could come back and live in the house anytime I needed, should enything go wrong... Open to advice, even any slagging off if appropriate!
