    Got a decent amount in the UK and just holding on to it. Tempted to transfer while GBP -> AUD exchange rate is pretty healthy but not sure.

    Still a year away from being eligible for PR and able to purchase property without foreigner tax.

    You understand the concept of market volatility right?

    •  

      Yes. "recently come into a large sum of money"

  •  

    I'm lucky, I got out of my Crypto a few weeks before the crash and had it sitting in an account as USDT, as the Aussie dollar plunged I made a (small) killing!

    Probs save at least some of it and invest the rest in the markets.

    I tried to kinda get background on you from other posts but that failed.
    Are you good with stocks? Are you okay with risk?

    Don’t put any money in the stocks you aren’t afraid to lose. Market is very volatile at the moment. There’s some trends if you pay close enough attention to that though.

    Interest rates are probably gonna soar after all this, real estate prices will drop but repayments most likely will rise steeply.

    I think government bonds or an interest bearing account is the best option for now, although I don’t think rates are anything to write home about.

      "Are you good with stocks? Are you okay with risk?"

      Most of the money came from stocks but it was stupid luck rather than market wizard.
      Made a few good investments with stupid amounts..

      "Interest rates are probably gonna soar after all this, real estate prices will drop but repayments most likely will rise steeply."

      interest rates soar wouldnt be an issue if I buy now with fixed rate?

        Well if you're confident in the stock markets, invest in them. There's no better time to invest in some, and no worse time to invest in others. Don't blow the whole lot though.

        interest rates soar wouldnt be an issue if I buy now with fixed rate?

        Well I mean yes, but I'm not up on my current fixed vs variable rates. At the moment, it's very beneficial to buy now and repay fast using a variable rate. I don't think the fixed rates are nearly as competitive.

    I'd invest 10k each into two seperate boot-strapped internet start-ups.
    20k into carefully picked stocks and hold the rest for bargaining power on an investment property in 6-12 months.

      Looks like a great advice… Is there any way to browse through foreclosed properties? TIA

        one tip is to offer less, one I looked at 300 the agent said straight away they will accept 250 them later said they will accept less

        •  

          I always low ball and work my way up. I've been surprised sometimes when I very low offer is accepted. I haven't bought a mortgagee house for a few years now, but they used to actually state it in the listing. I can also often tell by the condition of the property if the owner is financially stressed and needs to sell asap.

      "I like spending other people's money"
      Yeah, I'm also a little flippant when it comes to other people but for myself I check the road 100 times before crossing and still get hit by the car.

        it's hard to find the sweet spot between over thinking it and blindly investing. Some of my worse investment decisions have been quick, emotional snap decisions. But also I have been too conservative at times and lost a lot of potential gains. So I watch tv instead.

  •  

    If the money was won, I'd hand out half of it to whoever needs it and chuck the other half into my mortgage!

  •  

    You have 2 weeks left to secure 2.65% at Mazquarie, which will be the last good opportunity for interest rates.
    I am in the same situation as you and spent the day looking for things I can buy and resell for a profit. I found some and now have to decide whether to buy, the deals are good but I will need to find buyers. I have a big decision to make.

    I decided what to buy, made my offer and am waiting to hear back. Its an inexpensive property I could rent out or even use myself. The deal is so good, I am wondering if they have changed their mind

  •  

    The only good alternative I found is in another city so its not ideal, but its even cheaper, I could rent it and flip it. I have contacted them and also waiting to hear back
