Had a fun week in property last week. It was the Melbourne Property Investors expo at Jeff’s Shed. I took Angus, my five year old in and he hung out on the side of the stage, playing with his Skylanders whilst I was interviewed by Australian Property Investor (API) Magazine’s Editor Nicola McDougall, each day.

While hanging out at the Open stand, I did some quick whiteboard exercises for one young couple, on releasing equity from the primary place of residence. Then using that as a deposit and buffer to buy another investment property. It was a revelation for them which was awesome. It really is the simple things that make the most sense. I love seeing those light bulb moments occur for people.
I also had a debate with a guy from Brisbane on stage with Nic from API mag hosting on the Saturday. The debate centred on which city market was better to invest in currently – Melbourne or Brisbane. I was debating for Melbourne but made a confession at the end. Check it out here.
I did manage to take off early on Sunday and got the kids out in the boat for a few hours, so they were happy. Big weekend this weekend with the footy. I’ll be over at a mates place having a few while we watch the game. North are out of the running so I don’t really care who wins.
Next week I might take off to Torquay seeing the suns out. Start to fine tune my sand castle building skills with the kids ready for summer.
I turned the tables on Nic from API and interviewed her back – check it out here.
Also Al and I interview Andy from Smart Property Investment magazine – check it out here.
