Hi Kristine,I also own a 3 bdr in Appleby. It too is dates, but liveable. I have old carpet throughout which needs to be replaced soon. The am currently getting $150pw. Used to be $140pw until a recent rent increase 3 months ago. Ripping the carpet out and having timber floors might get a bit cold, especially during winter.I would speak to your PM…[Read more]
Hi Kristine,The rental market is quite strong in Invercargill at the moment so I'm surprised your property has been vacant for so long. This could mean a couple of things:1) The rent is too high2) The property isn't what tenants are looking for.Is the property presented well/clean? Does it have good heating? Can I ask which PM you are…[Read more]

For the City of Maribyrnong there is no ‘minimum land size’ for sub-divisions. There are other factors they look at such as the property position, open space, over shaddowing, setbacks, etc… You need to follow the planning scheme. I would start by speaking…[Read more]

You will find that most proeprties of 600sm (as you mention) will not be big enuf to take 2 dwellings in the suburbs you mention.
Can you please elaborate on this comment? I have seen quite a few developments take place in the mentioned…[Read more]
They all look good. My preferences are in the following order:
2 – looks great!
3 – Nice but not as catchy as #2
4 & 1 – don’t quite do it for me
This is just my opinion.
Good luck with it.
Thanks for those figures. It seems there has been a lot of movement in the past 12 months, both up and down!
Which magazine are you referring to? Is it KPI? I’m interested in reading this article.
Sorry to hear about your problems in NZ. I’m not sure which property manager you are using, but I would be switching to someone else ASAP. It doesn’t sound like your PM is trustworthy or doing their job right! You should take this up with the principal/director of the management company/agency and tell them exactly what you want. I’m…[Read more]
I hope this hypothetical of yours will come true. I would definitely consider switching! Most of the property managers in Invercargill (both from my experience and from others) are incompetent.
I don’t have landlord insurance, but my PM recommends Terri Scheer:
Not sure if they are any good. Premiums are around $295 p.a. and excess around $500 per claim (from memory). Have a read of their policy and see how you go.

I’m assuming you meant “not buy another house to live in”? I assume its ok to buy other properties during this period to rent out, as long as you do not claim them to be your PPOR. Is this…[Read more]
Speaking of letter drops, I’ve done a fair few over the past month or so. In the past couple of weeks I’ve had quite a few calls, however many of them are time wasters just curious to find out if I am stupid and willing to pay top dollar for their property. There are genuine sellers out there who respond to these ads, but from my experience most…[Read more]

Bankwest’s rate is actually 6.60% for the first 12 months. I just opened an account.
