Does anyone have any recommendations of sales agents to sell my Melbourne apartment?
This is my first time selling so any other costs to expect or advice would be greatly appreciated!
I have a small 1 bedroom apartment in Melbourne City fringe, still quite new (1 year) and in Abbotsford. I purchased it for $410k. I was wanting to sell it soon and don’t know what price I would get for it. Does anyone have an idea or know where I would find this kind of information??

We got her as a discount (you get what you pay for?) and always had to actively follow her up. I had arranged to view the property (I am from another city)…[Read more]
My partner is a builder from New Zealand and has dealt with the council through the permit process of building. It can be a headache but that’s usually the case with building a place. You should be able to find a lot of the information you need of the council website for the town your building in. The Building code is quite different from that of…[Read more]

I am by no means experienced but I can at least pass on what I have learnt from buying my first property investment in a 1 bedroom apartment. I had trouble securing finance and had to come up with the difference the bank wouldn’t loan. It is in a prime location BUT I have had huge trouble getting it tenanted this is because I’m competing…[Read more]
