    Bought my first PPOR this week. Bought land and other things in the past, but have rented the whole time.

    My family has been needing our own place for quite some time and with the crash up here an opportunity presented itself in the form of a villa/duplex next to the city in the best part of town with 250m2 land. It was far below our budget, fully renovated and will cost us about the same as renting.

    Anyway, I knew what an opportunity looked like, how to research the market, how to get the cash to make it happen, the risks and how to do the sums and find a broker from all the discussions on here.

    You've all helped in your own little way, even if you didn't realize it, so I just wanted to say (on behalf of my small family) a big thanks.
