  • lyndon_g replied to the topic Clarkson – perth in the forum General Property 16 years, 5 months ago

    Hi PaulI have worked for the last 6 months as new homes consultant in the Butler area just up form Clarkson. I think its a great suburb and still has a lot of potential with the Marmion ave extension to be completed within 12 months, and the freeway & rail within the next 10-15 years. Its still a relatively new area, but i feel in years to come…[Read more]

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic Danmar Homes in Perth in the forum General Property 17 years ago

    hey happyjackI currently work in the industry in perth, and feel that danmar homes build a good quality home. Having said that, every single builder in perth has its success stories, as well as disaster stories. Unfortunately this is just the nature of the booming industry in WA at the moment. It is every builders goal to provide a high quality…[Read more]

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic avoiding property managers! in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 4 months ago

    Hi all

    thanks for the great replies thus far.

    My main worry is that my current PPOR is a new home, only just completed 1 month ago, and things could get damaged quite easily.

    Am i within my legal rights to take a bond if i am managing a property myself?

    I just want to know that i have the same protection and backup with contracts in place etc…[Read more]

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic What can I do… in the forum No Subject 17 years, 4 months ago

    hey

    try asking them to present you with a better way of investing. sounds like maybe they fear what they dont know?

    i guess all you can do is show them the facts and hope that they realise how many oppurtunities there can be.

    this is a hard one :)

    where are you from ?

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic Cost Of Building in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 8 months ago

    Hi Daniel,

    The cost involved really depends how you want to finish off your house (granite tops or laminate?..tiles or floorboards? etc etc ). Personally, i would finish it all off yourself, rather than getting the builder to do it. Simply because, as you said, builders dont include these items as a standard. It is because of this that everything…[Read more]

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic first home buyer in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 9 months ago

    Hi Shrimpo,

    If you were to receive your first home owners grant, you need to live in your home for 6 months, within the first 12 months of owning the home. there are further details at http://www.firsthome.gov.au/

    Hope this helps.

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic I am confused and gettting a bit frustrated… in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 10 months ago

    I find that if a house is for sale and his has the possibility of being subdivided, the real estate agent tends to use this as a selling point.

    You should ask the agent (though never take that as gospel, always check with local authorities!), as they usually bump the price up of properties that have re-development potential, so they will most…[Read more]

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic building a house – sudden variation $$ required? in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 10 months ago

    CORRECTION

    provisional sums might not be finalised at time of contracts as they are not yet quantifiable, but the builder needs to give reasonable proof if PC or PS items come in higher than originally noted in the contracts.

    im not saying that the builder is necessarily wrong, as most times they are not – many hours are spent ensuring that they…[Read more]

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic building a house – sudden variation $$ required? in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 10 months ago

    I didnt say that it was necessarily the builders fault. Quite often the builder will have a reason which states exactly why its the clients fault for the price increase. they have to give a reasonable explanation though.

    provisional sums have to finalised in the final contracts, and by law have to be within 10% of the actual cost of the work.

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic Seeking a builders &/or developers advice pls in the forum General Property 17 years, 10 months ago

    Registered builders that use their ticket/registration for a building company as an employee can earn around 150k pa..or even more. Having said this..they do have a heap of responsibility and put in endless hours.. but they pay is excellent.

    To start out on your own means a massive outlay of capital..very high risk.. higher stress!

  • lyndon_g replied to the topic building a house – sudden variation $$ required? in the forum Help Needed! 17 years, 10 months ago

    Hi goodbyekitty,

    you have signed a contract with the builder, and they have to hold that price. they can only price rise you if
    a) you do not get all approvals in the beginning stages before your contracted 45 working days is up – NOT YOU IN THIS CASE

    b) you did not pay your final progress payment, hence allowing the builder to charge a…[Read more]
