  • hi aphraell, We have gone owner builder in vic, adding an extension aswell as reno the existing part of the house.

Using a private building inspector was a great start (instead of the council…[Read more]

  • Hi kiko, I have used this product and find it easy to use after a little practice. If you are not patient it may not be for you as a bit of time is needed to get a nice finish when your learning. It does look like a pro job when done, can be coloured, the dulux products (available to us) need to be sealed after application and is pretty…[Read more]

  • hi juder, we have looked into this a little… we are in vic.  we prefer to use a local company that deals in relocation, it seems the costs are lower this way. if you have one in your area check them out as they will be a wealth of knowledge.

    Hi emma, why dont you keep looking for a ppor, if you are pre appoved you will still get the FHOG. With 100% fiance on an ip you will miss out on FHOG, thats in VIC. The gossip here is that the FHOG will be increasing??? do some more home work and ask your lender about your finance options. good luck. let.

  • Hi koons,If I were in your position…  I would take the FREE money from FHOG, live in the property for 12 months as required in vic.

The IVP sounds  great but without living in it you will loose the FHOG. Also lo…[Read more]
