澳洲Australia property Biggest Regret | Sydney


在澳大利亚 I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo

What about an option- "I have failed but don't regret it"?

I don't. I learn from my mistakes, and move forward :D

I'm with Geoffw, where's the option, "I had a go, it didn't work out but I learnt alot" (no regrets).

Dumb ancestors

My biggest regret is the lack of foresight my relatives had when selling their beach-front houses in Surfers Paradise :(

If only they had left me the titles in their wills then I would be typing this from The Seychelles. :D

More dumb ancestors

I've been told that my ancestors once owned the land beneath
the ANZ building at the top end of Collins Street in Melbourne.

Story goes that they moved on because the land wasn't suitable
for growing potatoes on.

Might be BS though.

I'm a ninth generation Australian and my ancestors came over in the third fleet as a convict then settler. One of my ancestors used to own quite a significant amount of land in Balmain for farming but lost it gambling :mad: My nana had the map with his name on it....

Another one owned cotton plantations in the US and lost them gambling as well....

So if I had smart ancestors I could be writing this from the moon - the wonderful effects of compounding.....

BTW - I'm not into gambling at all :D

More stupid ancestors (husbands - not mine)

Apparently my husbands great grandfather originally owned a large part of North Sydney, and he, too, lost it gambling.

Andy,

You are correct, it is BS.

The land is good for growing potatoes on. :D

Damn those relos.

Well about the 1820's a great great great uncle owned 1/2 a county in Wales. Again wine women and horses had a lot to do with him being surgically removed bit by bit from the estate. Selling it off in chunks to pay debt.

Now we all have but memories and determination to own as much land (wherever) as we can. So far, my sister and brother in law have 3 IP's, 2 nephews have one each, sister in law and husband have 7, best friend has 7, and now I help others for a living(buyers agent). Even my electronice boutique manager has one i set up. Just spreading the wealth.

There are a suprising number of dead people commenting on this thread...

I would say not having my (saved) funds/money work for me sooner, specifically not getting into property investing earlier than I did. But it feels like splitting hairs really, I am still living an incredible life, making my own choices, doing the things I love, building wealth, learning and having a lot of fun. Not dead yet.

I replied: Not failed, but learnt ... and some of those learning experiences were very very expensive! :eek:

What I have learnt has made me more determined to "just do it" - but they are now highly calculated, properly researched and no fear risks.

And hopefully I can pass the lessons on to the next generation.

I'm still going through that process.

I have made bad choices, but I have survived. And the more experience I get the better I get.

There is no failure. There are only opportunities that didn't work out.
