(ii) Joe lived at 26 Hope Street at Parkview on the Gold Coast.  He signed the contract to purchase the $310,000 0.2 hectare property on 22 March 2003. Ownership transferred to him on 23 April 2003.

In October 2009, he decided that he and his family might enjoy a change.  So he rented a house at Broadbeach, which he and his family moved into, and then he rented out his Parkview property to tenants. Joe later placed the Parkview property on the market and sold his Parkview property for $597,000 under a contract dated 26 June 2011. In relation to the sale, he paid a $15,800 commission to the real estate agent and $2,300 in legal fees to his lawyer. The ownership transferred on 28 July 2011.

The house was constructed and completed in the September 1987 quarter at a cost of $65,000. 

Instead of moving into the house, Joe rented it out to tenants. He continued to do this until he eventually sold the residential property for $640,000 under a contract dated 10 June 2011 with the ownership transferring on 14 July 2011.  An independent valuation revealed that the land was worth $550,000 at the time of sale.
