Everything that has nothing to do with fishing.

Any decision to relocate is obviously a personal one with many factors to consider but little to no mortgage is always a plus lets face it life is for living as much as you can.
Having investment properties is how you get ahead, it cost bugger all more because you have a tenant in them paying most of the mortgage then years down the track when you sell them and have more money then you know what to do with then it’s well worth it
In all due respect Phil I don’t think it’s the best place to be debating investment strategies going to agree to disagree and opt out of this one. As without calculating all the cost factors and comparing it to other investments we won’t be proving anything.
In all due respect you brought it up by saying it’s got you stumped, iam not wanting to debate it at all just my opinion that’s its worked out very very well for me that’s all
Not just for you, it has for me as well. Very well :)

Just recently had the mortgage noose lifted, I thought about re-investing but after seeing my dads health deteriorate and he is only in his early 70's. I'm just going to enjoy life while I'm still able to do it as life is too short. I've pumped my super over the years and will continue to do so and that should cover me nicely when I get to retirement age.

Let me guess all Baby Boomers?
How’s the prospect of buying a house now for people starting out in life?
Circumstances change so it’s still got me stumped Phil just because it worked for a generation who enjoyed unprecedented growth doesn’t mean it will for the next.

I’ll enjoy owning my own home and make positive geared investments.

All the best with your Dad Marty. I’m doing the same salary sacrificing. The wonders of compounding

It’s a very effective way to get ahead, the last 20 years has shown that... but only as long as house prices keep growing, which is not guaranteed

Better fishing without millions of people casting over you. Bush and beach on your door step what more could you want.

Or even better buy my house so I can get another and go further in debt :rofl:
Im in pakenham lol
Better fishing always a pro but not the main reason for moving
