    Following on from the Goal Setting thread.

    Is it just me or is there a general trend to be focussing on 'debt reduction', 'savings' and 'consolodation' with everyones plans 2016. As opposed to other years we have done this where there was a much larger focus on growing the portfolio?

    Not sure, maybe the sample size is wrong.

    I voted debt reduction, although it's a temporary phase (another year or maybe two). Then we will be back into growth mode again.

    I voted debt reduction as we are at peak for LVR and maternity leave kills serviceability.

    Debt reduction - but only to get me back to decent serviceability. Then it will be back to growth, growth, growth!

    Just had one!! :p....need another one already.:eek:

    But nah; the passion for resi IP's is gone for me.

    No interest in headaches without serious cashflow to reward the effort.

    Still growing. I can't help it, even in a bleak market I still see opportunity. I will do some selling next year though - one in Catalina and 2 in Highgate to put some money back into the coffers so I can probably buy more :p

    Growing but selling aggressively too. Too much momentum to slow down.

    I'm looking to buy a few more CG properties but rather than add to the portfolio, for each that I buy I want to sell a regional cash flow positive property. I'd rather use my limited time and brain capacity for small developments than bothering with tenant arrears, maintenance and other issues more prevalent with low end properties

    Sitting on the sidelines until I have 2 years worth of tax returns, then go hard again. Can't wait!

    Going down to single income means debt reduction and saving up. Prioritizing elsewhere while monitoring the market. Never say never!
