OK, son, first of all, I’m going to send you a big thanks for you being ready to defend our country. You’re what makes Australia great and I don’t care what pillocks like BNBA say. You’re right to ignore the experts.
I’ve got a real beaut idea that means you can win whether property goes up or down. Ask your dad.
Use your cheap mortgage to buy your parents house off them. They are the people that you can trust the most. Property market up or down, experts know clever stuff. Screw em. If you go into the buy-to-let market you are going to find out that renters give you nothing but problems. You pay to advertise, you collect references, but once they’re in, it’s really hard to get them out.
