My company owns a lot of houses, buy a new one just about every time I go travelling in Aus. Unlike most, buy cheap rural houses, do them up and sell or rent them out for an affordable price. Most of our rural and country town properties, end up with tenecy schemes, which provide low cost housing to those in need. Much better than using expensive agents and they look after the homes very well, plus keeps people of the streets, which from my own experience is not a goof way to live.

you remind me of my younger years.

Back BEFORE the INTERNET.

I was sharing a house with a girlfriend of mine of long standing. She had split from her husband, .. and she had a guitar as a result.

It was a Stratocaster. It really was a beautiful object I wasn't that familiar with it tho.

She decided to sell it... NO internt back then . so she put an advert in the local paper .. For Sale.

WELL .. you know what happened ?? yeah// someone came to view it... .

Not long later, we came home to a house that had been burgled. The Strat was gone.

There wasn't much else for them to steal, so ..?? live and learn.

Indeed.

That's another reason I never sell my guitars.

I've sold two in my life (out of dozens), and that was to a guitar shop (and I took the guitars to THEM).

What would you do if the government confiscated your houses without compensation?
Apart from chattel slavery, Jim Crow, John C Calhoun, the Robber Barons, the Civil War, George Wallace, segregation, Ronald Reagan, violent crime, serial killers and Donald Trump, what makes America the shittest nation on earth?

Good onya DAX!

At least ur following the spirit and the intent of the govts Investment concepts, in providing affordable housing.

This concept is lacking in many people who invest in investment properties just to exploit the system simply for wealth creation.

U show that u can provide a need for the community and still create wealth for yourself.
