A buyers agent and a selling agent – Opponents?

A buyers agent and a selling agent – Opponents?
Hey there Inner Westies, I want to introduce our new guest blogger Fred Haggar. Fred is the principal of Property Search 4U, a buyers agency which is basically a one stop shop for all information regarding the property market, in particular in the Inner West. I picked his brain when I was looking to buy a property and I’m sure he can offer other Inner Westies valuable information on our local...

The Gnome Plague

The Gnome Plague
I apologise in advance to anyone who might be a gnome collector or who has other quirky statues and garden paraphernalia that they like to collect… but I am not one of those people. Unfortunately the hoarder that previously lived in my house did have a bit of a fetish for such things, which makes it difficult for me to understand why on earth she chose to leave them behind when she sold the property. I... 

Kitchen Nightmares – Gordon Ramsay would be disgusted

Kitchen Nightmares - Gordon Ramsay would be disgusted
The original kitchen in my “renovators delight” property was completely disgusting. Because we were on such a tight budget we considered keeping it (hard for even myself to believe seeing these photos again). My sister slaved for several days cleaning the grime and filth out of the cupboards, she even scored an eye infection for the awful experience. Needless to say she wasn’t... 

A real, real estate biatch!

A real, real estate biatch!
Imagine this, you are trying to find a rental property in the Inner West which is hotter than hot right now. Either the property gets snapped up before the open house or you are competing with 30 or so other groups of potential renters. On Saturdays you run from one open house to the next, and if like last Saturday, in temperatures that are more suitable for being at the beach. So its Friday afternoon... 

Marrickville unit sold for $5,420,000

Marrickville unit sold for $5,420,000
Wow! 10/11 Hill Street, Marrickville must have been a very impressive 2 bedroom unit. It is described as a “stunning resort style apartment” in the advertisement. I wonder if this is a record sale for Richardson and Wrench Marrickville. And here I was thinking that maybe the real estate market might take a little while to get back into its pre-Christmas groove. Lots like someone has made...

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa...
Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas (other than world peace and happiness of course) is for my plumber to come back to install my kitchen sink so I no longer have to wash up the dishes in the bathroom basin and while he is there it would be great if he could also hook up my laundry tub so that I don’t have to take all my washing to my brother’s house. I would be really grateful if you...
