I think there was a thread on this recently but I can't seem to find it. I have been researching for nearly a year now and with many many false starts I am back down to zero investments. I have had other opportunities this year which I have taken and they have been very lucrative and achieved other goals but still no investments. I am also very well along paying down my Sydney PPOR. It seems that every investment deal I chase evaporates - I am trying too hard or have I just found 100 ways not to invest ? I feel that I am pushing the limits of a lot of professionals on my team chasing deals that don't eventuate but can't seem to move forward.
