Hi all, not sure if this is the right place to post financial situation and where to next but here goes ... Current State of the Nation Assets: PPOR fully paid & Valued at $1.9Mil. Cash in Savins $300K 2 x Cars fully paid and worth approx. $25K combined Liabilities: 2 kids Wife Income: Approx. $200K per year gross Wife not working Age: Early 40's Goals : Get out of the CORPORATE World as FAST as I can and become a Property Investor Achieve $150K Net income per year to fund lifestyle and work on real estate investing / projects full time. Challenges : Where to start ? Option 1 : Borrow like crazy all equity from PPOR and CASH and go on a buying spree which means I have to stay in the Corporate work longer. Option 2 : Look to do a makeover in Sydney. Wife halfway thru Cherrie Barber renovation course Option 3 : Use $300K of cash savings to fund lifestyle for next 2 years and use equity from PPOR to pay off interest on property Option 4 : Look for some neutrally geared IP's. Options : 5, 6, 7 ??? PLEASE HELP I don't want to see a Financial Planner as the one we had during the GFC wiped off 10 years of my life savings hence why I am sharing situation here. There are a lot of folks who I know have already achieved financial independence here and I'd rather hear / learn from them. Look forward to an interesting thread ... thanks everyone.
