Buy a horro Home and raise your money...











The horror house can fulfil your desire to raise the money.

 “But we have been” I hear you cry. “Even the renovator’s delights are hard to get.”

“But I don’t speak of the kind of properties that need a new floor or a lick of paint.”

If you are really looking out for one then I must tell you that in some of the nation’s the cooler markets, ramshackle properties render enough of the visual deterrent to sell for a discount price.

These are the some much hidden parts of Australia, where it is very hard to offload even the relatively a nice and beautiful home. You may find the necks of the woods, where home stylists can truly still make half a crust giving your home a handy makeover. It is literally fine, if you are buying at those places; you still can have the modicum of power.

The most important point is that that it is opposite in the hotter markets. You may also encounter the some people in these areas, who won’t even bother of taking out the garbage for open houses. Right now, in the markets, the situation of the buyers is quite desperate. Buying such a property is like a vying with approx 100 others for a single stool in a game of musical chairs.

Well, I know it was a bit ghostly talk but I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year as this year is going to end. So, enjoy folks and invest somewhere, where you can find more interest.

The top most beautiful places of Melbourne...













Hey Folks,
I am here again with the list of some beautiful places of the fantastic Melbourne. Here, I am goanna tell you about some places that you should never ever forget, when it comes to Melbourne.

For the Cricket lovers, the Cricket Ground- if you are a real lover of Cricket then you must not forget to visit the Cricket Stadium of Melbourne, which is quite historic and it is a greatest stadium. Most of matches takes place in this stadium, so you should visit this place at once, whenever you visit Melbourne.



Southbank and Arts Centre Melbourne-
This place is located on the banks of the beautiful Yarra River. This area is fascinating and culturally, it’s rich enough to attraction the visitors. The Southbank promenade is sp good and it’s already filled with indoor/outdoor caf├ęs, restaurants, and live entertainment, which is so amazing that you feel that you have an open market. For the art lovers an amazing arts and crafts market is held on every Sunday, and this area is also a beautiful home of so many festivals that held up throughout the year.



Eureka Tower

This tower is named in the recognition of The Eureka Stockade, who was the 1854 rebellion of prospectors in the Victorian goldfields. The most fascinating point of the tower is that that this tower stands 91 stories above the ground. The skyscraper's gold crown and also the gold-plated windows, simply makes this tower look beautiful and literally sparkling, when the sunbeam reaches the building.
So, this is it. Next time I will be back with some more places and you will love to visit those places as well.

Do you wish to have a house that satisfies the term Charm? If, yes then there is a Charming early 1900s cottage













Do you wish to have a house that truly satisfies the term charm and if, yes then I would suggest that the 1900s house can do this for you all. There is an original early 1900s cottage available still with the period fireplaces and well decorated with the decorative ceilings set. And this cottage will be auctioned this weekend in the Baulkham Hills.
The cottage has four-bedrooms and it is located at 84 Old Northern Rd and it has been partially or can say fully renovated with some new exterior paint.
There is an agent named Ray Fayed from Laing and Simmons Parramatta said, “the home, which has a local heritage listing and zoned R3, could either be used as a residential or commercial property”.
“It is quite flexible,’’ he added.
“It has attracted a good mix of interest from those wanting to live there and also businesses including law firms, chiropractors and medical practitioners.’’ he further added.
This weatherboard residence that established on the 746sqm block has a veranda with some French doors. Don’t think that it has lost its originality as it retains the original skirting boards, the picture rails and the beautiful and warmed fireplaces.
The property will be auctioned very soon on the site on this Saturday at 3pm.
So, what’s your plan? Do you want to go for it?

How the Toorak property offers value for money?









The TOORAK real estate has enough overtones associated with it, but recently the new figures of the Real Estate Institute of Victoria are such that it has revealed a new one which is value for money.

The REIV figures showed that the Melbourne’s priciest postcode in which the median house price now sits at $4 million, was one and only the ranked the city’s tenth priciest patch per square metre.

At $7,255 per square metre the suburb, which was much more convenient and affordable than the South Melbourne, where a $1.6 million median house price was just amazing as it worked out to about $11,212 per square metre, or even Albert Park which had the $10,495 per square metre in the price tag.

The Carlton North, St Kilda East and Fitzroy just rounded out the Melbourne’s top five one, with the prices was per square metre and in between $9717 and $9966.

The only suburb other than Toorak to which was there to hit the list in Stonnington was the South Yarra, where a $1.78 million house indeed worked out to $7451 per square metre.

The REIV president Geoff White said that the demand for the suburbs is walking a distance to the CBD, and for those in the city’s inner south had just propelled the number of them up in the list.

“Greater demand for space within walking distance of the city has really pushed up the price of land in these areas, while many of Melbourne’s most exclusive suburbs were further down the list due to the size and scale of houses in these locations,” Mr White told.

“Many of the city’s most expensive suburbs by square metre were located in the city’s south east, including St Kilda East and South Yarra — with these areas benefiting from quality amenities and night-life.” he further added.

Now, what you all think about the price?

Australia And It's Real Beauty









Do you want to feel lost in the wonderful beauty of nature? Have you ever wonder about Australia’s Great Ocean Road? Never; let me give an overture of the very natural and Worthing place that anyone would love to visit.

It’s nothing else but the Australia’s Great Ocean Road. If you like to take in breath taking sights of long sandy beaches and dramatic cliffs on this place, then a full-day would be also very less to recognize this place and to take the zest of this area.  

Now, the question will click in the mind of many, what extra this place renders us?

You get full chance of exploring the natural wonders of Australia’s Great Ocean Road, which is just like awesome. I mean, I don’t have the words to define this place; guess my words are not strong enough to speak about the beauty of this place.

Apart from the beauty of nature, you can take a walk at Kennett River, one of the best places to spot koalas in the wild. You also get the chance to admire rock formations including the Twelve Apostles at Port Campbell National Park, which is just amazing.

It’s my personal experience about the Australia’s Great Ocean Road, that you don’t feel unsatisfied ever. You may also feel more closeness to yourself and with the nature. This place binds you with itself so much, that you even don’t wish leave it. It’s the true example of natural beauty. It’s the other heart of Australia, which reflects the more preciseness in it.

The beautiful dream to have a house in Australia, near the beach.

If someone really wants to have the zest of the sunrise and sunset, the best place see these things in more vivid way is to see it from the beach; the sounds of the waves lapping the shore soothing you to sleep, morning walks along the sand and sunny late-afternoon swims before dinner – it’s an unbelievable way of lifestyle, which refreshes the mood of any person.
Just in time for the summer, here are Australia’s 3 most drool-worthy beach houses in the market right now:-

1-Mooloolaba-


Sitting on the banks of the Mooloolah river on the Sunshine Coast it’s not technically a beach house.
Anyone can enjoy the nature's beauty as this house is almost 30m of river frontage.
There are five bedrooms, two bathrooms across two levels, a pool and a gated security entrance make this place a pretty special home.
2- Whitsundays-
It looks like it could be called as the pure palace of luxury. This mind-blowing and amazing mansion is probably the Australia’s most opulent beach house on the market at the moment.


A private helipad is only the beginning of the list of luxuries of this rare private beach-fronted Mediterranean-style property.
The astounding views of the coral sea and surrounding islands can be enjoyed from its six king-sized bedrooms.
3- Tamarama:-
If actually wants to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Bondi, Tamarama boasts some of Australia’s priciest real estate.

This house is with four bedrooms and 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean this luxurious four level property is the ultimate for beach living. Enjoyment with peace can be considered as the second name of this place.
Anyone can call these places as the few heavenly places in Australia.

Residential Real Estate









Residential development is real estate development for residential purposes. Some such developments are called a subdivision, when the land is divided into lots with houses constructed on each lot. Such developments became common during the late nineteenth century, particularly in the form of streetcar suburbs.

In previous centuries, residential development was mainly of two kinds. Rich people bought a town lot, hired an architect and/or contractor, and built a bespoke / customized house or mansion for their family. Poor urban people lived in shantytowns or in tenements built for rental. Single-family houses were seldom built on speculation that is for future sale to residents not yet identified. When cities and the middle class expanded greatly and mortgage loans became commonplace, a method that had been rare became commonplace to serve the expanding demand for home ownership.

Post–World War II economic expansion in major cities of the United States, especially New York City and Los Angeles produced a demand for thousands of new homes, which was largely met by speculative building. Its large-scale practitioners disliked the term "property speculator" and coined the new name "residential development" for their activity. Entire farms and ranches were subdivided and developed, often with one individual or company controlling all aspects of entitlement (permits), land development (streets and grading), infrastructure (utilities and sewage disposal), and housing. Communities like Levittown, Long Island or Lakewood south of Los Angeles saw new homes sold at unprecedented rates—more than one a day. Many techniques which had made the automobile affordable made housing affordable: standardization of design and small, repetitive assembly tasks, advertising, and a smooth flow of capital. Mass production resulted in a similar uniformity of product, and a more comfortable lifestyle than cramped apartments in the cities. With the advent of government-backed mortgages, it could actually be cheaper to own a house in a new residential development than to rent.

AUSTRALIAN HOUSING BOOM MAY END

AUSTRALIAN HOUSING BOOM MAY END
 

"The unwinding of housing market tensions to date may presage dramatic and destabilizing developments, rather than herald a soft landing," the OECD's report warned.

Australia could be confronting a "dramatic and destabilizing" end to the housing boom, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Sydney’s housing boom is coming to a termination, as curbs on investor lending and a number of new developments combine to depress prices, according to QBE Insurance Group Ltd.
After gushing 56 percent in the past four years, the median house price in Australia’s biggest city is forecast to stay almost uniform in the next three years, QBE said in its annual housing outlook released Thursday. Sydney apartment prices are seen falling 6.8 percent by June 2019, as decelerating rental and price growth dries up investor enthusiasm for property.
The housing boom has been fired by record-low interest rates, a burgeoning population and a shortage of supply, barring young people out of the market. Banks have tightened affording criteria for property investors after regulators pressure to deter the price rise, and some state governments have imposed stamp duty surcharges on overseas buyers. 
“Prices are estimated to moderate through the three years to 2019, which is likely to be positive for housing affordability,” said Phil White, chief executive officer of QBE Lenders’ Mortgage Insurance. “It’s likely owner-occupiers, including first home buyers, will be stepping in to pick up some of this opportunity in the market.”
In Perth, which has been hit hardest by the decline in mining investment, the average house price by 2019 is projected to be 10 percent below its 2014 peak.
Brisbane home prices are seen resisting the drift, with QBE saying a lack of new supply will push prices up 6.5 percent.
Australian fixed-income investors now refer to the scene of a housing market downturn as their biggest concern, replacing the risk of a hard landing in China’s economy, according to a survey released Thursday by Fitch Ratings. 
Yet, only 4 percent of those surveyed expected fall in prices more than 10 percent by mid-2019, Fitch said. Investors also acknowledged property-market exposure as the greatest risk to bank credit quality over the next year, with hypothecations making up almost two-thirds of the major Australian banks’ loan books.
Investor Loans
Though there seems no indication that the boom is going to end. House prices in Sydney are up 14 percent this year through September, as compared to 9 percent across the nation’s foremost cities, according to CoreLogic Inc., for still a lack of houses for sale in and around the city.
Fewer investors are inflowing the market after banks tautened lending to landlords, the QBE report said. Investors accounted for 44 percent of housing loans in the 12 months ended June 2016, down from 51 percent in 2015, QBE said.
Separate data released Wednesday showed up investor interest not to be fading yet. Investor lending has rallied 10 percent since April, having slumped 18.5 percent over the previous 12 months, CoreLogic said.

CAREER AS REAL ESTATE BROKER

Imagine working for yourself in a flexible career where you can set your own schedule with annual earning potential of $100,000 or more. There are numerous reasons to choose real estate as your career. Here are some benefits stated that would incline your interest towards real estate as a career path:


  • Getting Started in a Real Estate Career is Swift and Unproblematic

In most states, you can complete the required training, become a licensed real estate agent, and initiate a new career in just a matter of weeks or months (depending on state regulations).
  • As a Real Estate Agent, You Are Your Own Boss

You’re an independent contractor and organize your own book of business. You make the decisions. Couple together a good attitude and solid work ethic, and there are virtually no confines for the growth of your real estate business.
  • Real Estate Agents Make a Fine Income

Your income isn’t restricted by an hourly wage or a corporate-dictated salary range. As a real estate salesperson, your income is largely dictated by the time you devote. Raise your real estate business by adding an assistant or get the suitable license that lets you build your own brokerage. The growth potential is enormous. 
  • Real Estate Agents Work Supple Schedules

Real estate agents receive authentic satisfaction from helping clients find the perfect home or sell their property at a great price. This is a stimulating time for both buyers and sellers, and they look to the real estate agent as the expert to help them manage their way through the process with excellent client services.
  • Real Estate is a Great Business


Real estate really is a great career choice. It can be a very complicated career if the training and work ethic fails, but it can be a seriously rewarding career if you are self-motivated, hard-working, honest, and take pleasure in networking and helping people.
