Hello everyone - I haven't been active on this forum in a while but found my way back here recently. I was bene313 on SS. It's good to see some of the old members still around. I have been interested in (and studying) property and investment for 15 years. While at uni I was unable to participate in the market. A bit about my investing life since then: 2010 purchased a house + granny flat on the Central Coast. @Propertunity from this forum was my buyers agent. To this day I have not physically seen the house nor been to the area. It was a yield play in an area I could afford. Took a few years of grad salary to gather the deposit! 2012 became involved in an accounting and business advisory firm. By far my most involved and rewarding investment so far. I love being in business and I love working with other small businesses. The focus has been here rather than property for the last few years. 2014 purchased small weatherboard PPOR near the beach in Perth. I love living near the beach Along the way we also put a small sum into a local/private syndicate. Something I'd like to do more of - 10% return and no repairs, rates, etc! Also into researching and on the lookout (more the wife than myself) for "side hustle" online business ideas/projects. Looking to launch the current idea soon.
