    Recent news with oil find shows Coober Pedy was going to start taking off… is there no talk of that in the area yet? I guess it will take some planning time and money until work starts there, but would have thought this a great future investment area?

  • ecatt replied to the topic Micheal Yardney Article in the forum Opinionated! 11 years, 1 month ago

    I agree too, but its not a very exciting article. The main point I get from it is the market will be different in different areas around Australia and you need to do your research…

    Definitely lay underlay under the carpet. We renovated a similar house, and the smell of urine went through the floor boards – terrible!

    It sounds like you dont have much choice with only $400K… I couldnt imagine finding a house in the south of Sydney for that kind of money. Even if you went slightly west there isnt much around for that money… much less 3 beds 2 baths.
    I recently bought a unit in Carlton – 1.5 beds (1 bed with open study) 1 bath for $300K that I rent…[Read more]

  • ecatt replied to the topic building/pest inspection for non-house worth it? in the forum General Property 17 years, 1 month ago

    I agree with Linda. A friend of mine got burnt big time by not doing any inspections for P & B. It is a small cost that can save you heaps in the long term.

  • ecatt replied to the topic Buy Now or Buy Later !! in the forum Help Needed! 18 years, 1 month ago

    What I would give to know that!
    My opinion… and this is only on the Sydney market, and I am NO expert, but I think there is a little way yet for prices to decrease.
    I think there will be an interest rates rise, by mid year, which will push a few more people to sell… if there isnt though, the market will just stay flat I think for at least…[Read more]

  • ecatt replied to the topic FIrst IP & struggling to get tenant :( in the forum Help Needed! 18 years, 1 month ago

    I love the plasma TV idea… it would be really eye catching when you walk into the apartment plus it has depreciation advantages!! Nice work.

  • ecatt replied to the topic house market state – up down sideways? in the forum No Subject 18 years, 1 month ago

    Another idea is maybe truck drivers may need some space to leave their truck? I guess it depends on the land configuration. The reason why I say that is that my grand dad used to lease out his land for truckdrivers to leave their trucks. It was really secure though as he lived near the land so could keep an eye on it.

    You dont have to justify anything. Situations change, so you must too. Why dont you write down all the for and against points and be very honest. I think that will give you your answers.

  • ecatt replied to the topic Renovation as a career in the forum Creative Investing 18 years, 1 month ago

    My opinion is to read as much as you can, and watch some shows on tv which are great… if you have foxtel the lifestyle channel has some excellent shows such as property ladder, grand designs, the million pound property experiment etc and then there are heaps of decorating shows too like changing rooms etc.
    The most important thing with…[Read more]

    Wow Chris, you sure have got some experience there, and you have obviously seen the good and the bad of investing.
    Are you planning on developing your DA sites? How is the planning permission going in Tassie? What size blocks are you planning? I have a million questions I could ask you! But lets start with these!![biggrin]

  • ecatt replied to the topic Homes seized in mortgage squeeze in the forum Help Needed! 18 years, 1 month ago

    There are alot of people out there who paid WAY too much for their houses, got swept up in the boom hysteria and now they are possibly in trouble…
    There are also alot of people who took equity out of their houses to live the good life, and now they are possibly in trouble
    There are alot of smart people also who looked ahead and knew it couldnt…[Read more]

    Couldnt agree with you more Nazzy… and it is so important to find a mechanic you trust…. they are out there!!!

  • ecatt replied to the topic Interest rates hike? in the forum No Subject 18 years, 1 month ago

    This is about the only thing I have seen in the last couple of months, and it was in Money Magazine December issue (ie came out early Nov)

    “Property experts expect prices to continue flatlining in 2006 — but if interest rates rise, it could turn ugly, writes Terry Ryder.

  • ecatt replied to the topic How to cover an ugly fence? in the forum Value Adding 18 years, 1 month ago

    Another idea, depending on how exposed to the elements the fence is, but you could get some of that cheap bamboo matting. It is sold at most hardware stores, is really cheap, yet looks modern and effective. We put some up and it has lasted about 18 months, but probably needs replacing now. Its still cheaper than painting though….
