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?
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]

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]

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

I just found a good article on that actually…
Another idea, depending on how exposed to the elements the fence is, but you could get some of that cheap bamboo matting.
