    There are plenty of sites on the internet on how…[Read more]

  • Hi bren the builder

    GST only kicks in if you do a reno that constitutes “making it new”

    My accountant made me aware of this when I started. He sent me some examples from the ato it is GSTR 2003/3

    The renovation needs to be substanstial and needs to effect the building as a whole.

    If you send me your email address I will send you a copy of…[Read more]

  • Hi simond11

    check with the council on rezoning (to higher density) within 5km of the train station.

    I looked at dudley park last year, I think it worth a look, if you buy and hold. Lots for sale in mandurah should be able to neg down.

    Speak to a REA in the area, there are good bits and bad.

    Hi Emil

    I recently had two seperate valuations done on my home. I have always referred to it as a 4 bedroom house – but both agents said that I could not call it a 4 bedroom home if it didn’t have a built in wardrobe.

    They both completed my valuation as a 3 bedroom plus study !!

    Even though my “study” was…[Read more]

  • celeste replied to the topic Painting Bathroom Tiles in the forum Value Adding 16 years ago

    Hi all

    Personally I do not like painted tiles.

    but knights paints do it.

    Have you thought about stripping all the paint off, then dig the grout out and change the colour, repaint – maybe add a border tile.

    Rose pink is one of the new designer colours – have a look in Bunnings paint section at dulux’s little flip books. I was looking this…[Read more]
