Hello...I am a newbie and need help working out what I need to do and how best to get there I wanted to run my goal and situation past the brains trust if I may... Anyone got any suggestions on the best approach to take? AIM – Own 5 positively geared properties in the next 10 years. Current Situation – I earn 80k a year in a steady job. Currently have $400 a week (20kpa) going towards savings. This money can be used for servicing loans. Have 7k in the bank currently growing by $400 pwk. Married – wife working casual will be full time May next year. Neither of us have any debt whatsoever. Was gifted a property by family. Mum lives there and pays for maintenance/rates/insurance but doesn’t pay rent. This will continue indefinitely. Property in my name only but I am obligated to sell it and give half the proceeds to my brother when Mum passes. Property worth 200k. It’s not a bad position to be in and should get me to my goal. This I am certain...the how I get there though is a bit daunting. .. I have permission to use mum’s house to give me a kick start, but I would die if she/I lost it due to my mistakes... so any suggestions need to keep that in mind. Can’t wait to read your suggestions.
