New Series: Neighbourhood Watch – Inner West Real Estate

New Series: Neighbourhood Watch – Inner West Real Estate
Since every Sydneysider is obsessed with real estate, and real estate is soooo hot right now in the Inner West, we thought it appropriate to start a new series focusing on Inner West real estate. As a real estate agent living in the Inner West, I got the job. So this week I thought it appropriate to look at a very unusual property that got the interest of home buyers, investors and builders alike....

The person who invented the decorative cornice should be shot!

The person who invented the decorative cornice should be shot!
So the filling and sanding of walls is complete… well as complete as it can be in a 1920′s house that is full of cracks and holes that were hidden beind wallpaper. Two fireplaces have been removed due to various states of decay. The only problem with removing the fireplaces is the two empty spaces which I need to fill and match with the existing decorative cornice in the room. So I had...

Real estate in Marrickville has taken off!
Looks like I got into the real estate market just in time! What hope does anyone have if 2 bedroom units in Marrickville are selling for $4,450,000. Mind you that does include a garage, and in the inner west – that means big bucks!  Read More →

Downsizing your empty nester, baby boomer life

Downsizing your empty nester, baby boomer life
This week my parents decided that they want to experience city life for a while, after spending most of their married lives living in the burbs. They have already sold their house last year and moved from a 6 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom apartment just to see if they liked apartment living. Keep in mind, that my mother does not like to throw things out and having such a large house for 40 years tends...

Original price guide $80. Sold for $1,151,500

Original price guide $80. Sold for $1,151,500
I first wrote about 11 Temple Street, Stanmore when I discovered that the initial auction price guide was $80 (obviously a typo), then it was upgraded to $800,000, but the agents were just a little off the mark with this property. It sold at auction for $1,151,500 last Saturday. That is a only $351,500 above the price guide! What am I missing? It looks like a complete dog box! For all auction results... 

Auction Results in August

For all those real estate junkies out there, I’m starting a new monthly post which will show statistics based on Inner West auction results. I am a complete data nerd, hopefully home owners or home hunters will also find this useful. If you own a house I’m sure you are hoping the property market continues to rise and if you’re looking to buy a house you’re undoubtedly hoping... 

Property price guide above $80. Anyone interested?

Property price guide above $80. Anyone interested?
For those people who are looking to buy a property in the inner west and have been struggling to save the 10% deposit – this might be the property for you. The price guide indicates the vendors would be open to offers of about $80. We all know real estate agents tend to indicate a price guide a little bit below what the property if likely to achieve – but this is a little ridiculous. For...
