    I know there will be endless variations and choices but just choose the one that fits closest. I added numbers to you can type a reply if you want. Please only pick 1 option from the top though.

    Sorry - I voted for more than one since more than one fits our strategy, the poll had multiple choices enabled and I didn't read your post before voting. Whoops!

    For the record, I voted 2, 4, 5 & 10.

    1, 2 & 4 mainly, Will compromise on 4 to make sure I still purchase in areas with some potential for CG. Still early on in my portfolio build so maybe this will change. Last purchase was in Ballarat

    4 and ( 1 or ( 2 and 1 ) )

    Also sell with DA for the right property, although that partly fits 2.

    My style is a hybrid of 1, 2, and 4. They are not mutually exclusive :)

    Currently 1, wanting to now include 2 with future properties but ultimately they will become option 1 for me.

    1 and 4 for me for now. Once I get more experience with 2 will add that into my strategy.

    negative gearing is not a strategy. It's a tool provided by the ATO to assist investors, mostly middle class income earners, to provide housing for the poor because the government is poor also and cannot provide enough public housing, job growth or general education and knowledge to the poor so they can take have their own home.

    Thinking negative gearing is a strategy to get into property investment to save tax is pretty silly.

    Hi CJP,

    I don't think anyone is suggesting to buy a NG property purely for tax saving reasons mate. I agree with you NG is not a strategy per se, however there are many great deals/acquisitions/renos/developments where holding that site or property will need to be NG (unless you put a massive deposit) for a period of time (months-years) in order to realise the larger goal. Whether you call that part of a 'strategy' or not is semantics. Many people I talk to are so afraid of NG and they like to shoot off buzz words to me like 'cash flow positive' and 'neutrally geared' (and there's nothing wrong with those imo) without really understanding how a property that is NG can still have a great outcome/result. I am not pro NG, I am just pro using any strategy/situation that has a good chance to yield a great outcome. And of course, everyone has to do whats right for their own individual situation.

    A good friend of mine likes to call NG, 1 step back for 3 steps forward.
