    It would be great to share your timeline of property purchases and other major milestones (marriage, kids, divorce, retirement, starting a business, millionairedom, property sales, major career changes etc).

    This is a revival of an old topic I posted on Somersoft. It was fascinating.

    I'll start. Mine's pretty shot so far:

    1985 - Born
    2010 - PPOR
    2013 - IP1
    2014 - IP2
    2015 - Started business
    2015 - IP3

    Your turn.

    Funny you say that!

    That place is white hot...have one in Mooroka and another in Annerley...

    These places are bluechip now...and hard to develop also due to restrictions..so supply will be in check. What did you build?

    No need to worry...if you built T/H style...they are probably already worth 550-650k a piece....that already almost $7m right there. And those areas are future blue chip!

    2002 - PPOR (Canberra)
    2003 - Moved to UK & PPOR became IP1
    2004 - Read Jan Somers books, joined Somersoft! Got motivated.
    2006 - IP2 (Sydney)
    2007 - Moved back to Oz & rented
    2008 - PPOR (Sydney)
    2013 - IP3 (bought out equity partner from PPOR and moved out)
    2013 - Started renting again
    2013 - IP4 (Mrs bought out her equity partner)
    2014 (first half) - Cleanup of finance, Restructuring banks/equity access and new broker
    2014 (second half) - IP 5,6,7,8 (Adelaide) and 9,10,11,12 (Brisbane). All 8 are < 50% of portfolio!
    2015 - Hanging around on PChat.. being sad about APRA... and letting our credit files heal.

    I don't think 2014 is repeatable in the current lending environment, and we don't have the cash for it anyway. I'm glad we did it when we could before they locked things down, now we just wait and watch. Maybe time to think about other more important things - for example what @Touristy has been doing ;)
