A dash of style goes a long way in a tight market

October 26, 2010 § 1 Comment

Presentation is crucial to achieving the highest price. Real estate agents will tell you they no longer sell property. These days, they’re selling a lifestyle.

Perception and emotion play as much a part in the sale of a property as the actual building itself, and increasing numbers of vendors are finding property styling not only helps a home sell, but often helps it sell for well above market value.

Essentially, styling a property means presenting it in its best possible light. ‘‘Presentation is just so important to getting the highest price,’’

Court ruling spells trouble for investors and rental agents

September 24, 2010 § Leave a comment

A recent NSW court decision will push investors and rental agents to take a closer look at safety in their properties after more than $840,000 was awarded to a tenant injured by broken glass.  

Chances are you’ve never heard of the case of Hunt v Roads and Traffic Authority of NSW, but this recent court decision could have a far-reaching consequences for unwary property investors around the country.

  The ruling cuts right to the heart of the issue of what “duty of care” an owner and their managing rental agent owes a tenant, their awareness about potential problem areas in rental properties, and the importance of complying with building codes when conducting even routine maintenance.

Cowdray Park House in West Sussex on sale for ‘bargain’ $41.7million

September 21, 2010 § Leave a comment


It’s a stunning 19th Century British country mansion fit for a super-rich polo-loving owner and James Packer holds a property right next door.

Cowdray Park House in West Sussex, southeast England, has gone on the market for the ‘bargain’ price of $41.7 million.

The locals were expecting the Australian billionaire to make an offer for the 13-bedroom, eight-bathroom home, given the Packer family’s strong ties to the area.

“On the face of it you would think he would snap it up, there’s definitely been a lot of talk around the pubs that he would be very interested,” a resident of nearby Midhurst, who did not want to be named, said.

Palatial spreads kept empty? That’s rich

They are Toorak‘s ghost mansions: grand houses that have sat unoccupied behind chained gates and boarded-up windows for years, even decades.

As Melbourne struggles with a housing shortage, some of the city’s finest abodes are home to nothing more than dust and cobwebs.

Take, for example, a French Renaissance-style mansion in St George‘s Road that Asian-based property tycoon David Yu bought in 1991 for $5 million and has left unoccupied since.

The land alone, believed to be one of Toorak’s largest allotments, could now be worth as much as $35 million.

Plans by Mr Yu to build a five-storey apartment block on the site were rejected a decade ago.

Market not dreadful, just quiet

September 21, 2010 § Leave a comment

Melbourne property prices experienced another month of near zero growth in August, with the market putting in its second weakest performance of the year.  

Analyst Residex reported that Melbourne house values rose just 0.33 per cent last month (apartment values fell1.03 per cent).

That was only marginally better than the 0.27 per cent growth in house values recorded in May, when the  market was commonly said to have ‘‘turned’’ after Anzac Day.

Residex chief executive John Edwards said Melbourne’s market peaked in April when the growth rate hit 3.2 per cent in a single month, declining steadily but not uniformly since then.

‘‘[The results] are not saying that the market is dreadful. Melbourne is just quieting; the rate of price growth is definitely slowing,’’ Mr Edwards said.

There was a strong level of demand witnessed in yesterday’s auction market as a surge of stock hit the market ahead of next week’s lull for the AFL grand final.

The Real Estate Institute of Victoria said that 72 per cent of the 607 properties up for auction this week were sold.
