Hi all,

I?m an Auckland and I actually have 1 off plan property with 10% deposit that will be settled at end of 07. However I consider that is not a really investment yet. It will be when I can settle it and tenants start moving in....

So for now, can you give me some ideas for my 1st investment that I will be able to start at October?
My income is about 45K/year. So how much capital should I have in hand to take action?

With this amount of equity, what kind of property should I buy and where?

I have seen a lot of successful investors who don?t have any jobs but after investing they have good cash flow and by the way investing BUY and Hold long term. I want to be like them -full time investing- however I don?t know how much did they start with?

My feeling was aggressive at the early stage but now I feel a bit lost due to I could not choose the right way right strategy for myself. I?m really looking forward to poomba's workshop at end of Sep and the Richmastery Property Academy at end of Oct. I feel that is long time to wait but I have to. That?s why now I want to share my case with you guys and listen your ideas and advise.
