  • calvinci replied to the topic real estate agent/ agent representative income in the forum Heads Up! 14 years, 7 months ago

    hi, thanks for your info, this is very helpful. Unfortunately I have turn down the offer because here most agent only charge 2-2.5%, so 400k only get about A$8k commission. And if you are selling, you get 15% of that, about $1200. But listing get more commission, around 30% as it's hard to get a listing. I was told I have to knock all door in this…[Read more]

  • calvinci replied to the topic What could you do with A$30k in the forum Help Needed! 14 years, 7 months ago

    sorry I didn't make this clear enough, I do have a job now, about A$70k a year, that's why I turn down REA offer as I think I have to work a lot harder with a lot more time to get the same amount.. point taken, thanks for all the info..

  • calvinci replied to the topic What could you do with A$30k in the forum hi, I don’t quite 14 years, 7 months ago

    hi, I don't quite understand, why do I have to take out additional credit on my current PPOR? can I just use this 30k to purchase another IP and have another loan on this IP? I can't put this 30k in another account to offset mortgages as my mortgage plan wasn't allow..

  • calvinci replied to the topic real estate agent/ agent representative income in the forum Heads Up! 14 years, 7 months ago

    sorry typo… not a week, it's 4-5 a month.

  • calvinci replied to the topic real estate agent/ agent representative income in the forum Heads Up! 14 years, 7 months ago

    hmm… in fact I have had a chat with few agent from different company, looks like most of them is selling 4-5 property a week.. probably making about A$50k a year then..  Is that the amount average agent is making?

  • calvinci replied to the topic real estate agent/ agent representative income in the forum Heads Up! 14 years, 7 months ago

    That's very helpful, thanks Scott..

  • calvinci replied to the topic real estate agent/ agent representative income in the forum hi Scott, thanks for your 14 years, 7 months ago

    hi Scott, thanks for your info. I am not a licensed agent, I only have agent rept cert. And the agency told me I only get 15% for selling property, did not mentioned about listing thou. Which means if I can't get any listing, I will have to sell at least 5-6 property with average $400k per month. is that something hard to achieve? ei

  • calvinci replied to the topic help with matching paint color in the forum Help Needed! 15 years ago

    it's not exactly white, it's cream color, i was told it's flat ceiling paint, probably will try another shop rather than bunning then.

  • calvinci replied to the topic painting without undercoat in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 1 month ago

    hi, I am new to painting.. I just bought whatever I can get from bunning and paint it straight away, didn't know about undercoat until it's done. The render wall looks like uneven, some area is rougher and some is smooth, and it's not perfectly flat, is that renderer's fault or my fault of not using undercoat?

  • calvinci replied to the topic problem found during building and pest inspection in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 5 months ago

    thanks for the recommendation. My builder had another inspection yesterday and concluded the bracing is good enough, so things are on track now…

  • calvinci replied to the topic problem found during building and pest inspection in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 5 months ago

    Now i have an idea of how bracing works, and it sounds good… thanks for all the help. This house worth about A$450k, not sure if the vendor going to court me if I pull out

  • calvinci replied to the topic problem found during building and pest inspection in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 5 months ago

    hi, thanks for the constructive opinion. When she agreed to replace it, I paid deposit and she insist about 90 days settlement, I guess she bought another property and planing to do reno before move in too. I agreed and now it's like another one and half month before settlement. If she replace the beam as agreed, then it's pretty straight…[Read more]

  • calvinci replied to the topic problem found during building and pest inspection in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 5 months ago

    I am here asking for help and opinion, it doesn't matter if you believe or not.. As said, vendor agreed to replace it, so I paid deposit, but turn out she didn't keep her word. Since it's done, if it's acceptable, I will live with it, otherwise I will still proceed with the sales and replace it myself, but will get my solicitor to claim back the…[Read more]

  • calvinci replied to the topic problem found during building and pest inspection in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 5 months ago

    it's a deal, I paid 10% deposit when vendor agreed to replace that beam. Only yesterday I was told it's been braced instead of replacing it. I am not sure about bracing, so I hope someone experience, or builder himself can advise me if bracing has been done commonly..And I don't think bearer beam it's little thing, especially cost $2000 to…[Read more]

  • calvinci replied to the topic problem found during building and pest inspection in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 5 months ago

    hi Guys, Just been inform the vendor didn't replaced it as she promised, instead her builder just braced it. Anyone experience bracing a beam, is it any good?

  • calvinci replied to the topic problem found during building and pest inspection in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 6 months ago

    hi Tony, thanks for yr advise. The vendor finally agreed to fix it for us.. 2k is not much if it's a bargain, however I feel like my purchase prices is higher than  market prices… So not happy to pay for extra cost…

  • calvinci replied to the topic problem found during building and pest inspection in the forum Help Needed! 15 years, 6 months ago
