    Coloured render is tricky to get the right colour from a small sample (pretty much like trying to choose a whole house colour from a 2" square card from bunnings).  Going down the base/intermediate/topcoat paint option is safer, and the colour is much closer to what you choose.  Also be mindful that amature persons spraypainting could be d…[Read more]

    Pinkboy, I would be interested to see what areas of Mackay you recommend, being a local.  I have a friend buying a house and land package in Mirani.  I was thinking it is a bit far out of town but maybe it is closer to the mines?  What are your thoughts?  Cheers, Janice

Supposedly they call it the RITZ of mining towns cause of its proximity to the ocean hahaha. I remember seeing it come up in the residex best rent property report last year.…[Read more]

    I'm definitely leaning towards Mackay, its a real muscle town offering so much more that just coal-seam gas projects.

    Red Flag.Imagine it…..claiming 40 years capital allowance depreciation on a brand new build straight up first year, then selling up because your circumstances with said property have changed, and probably because something has turned south, with no ability to repay what you have already depreciated.  Unfortunately no-one has a crystal ball to…[Read more]

  • I would at least obtain permission in writing, from whatever source (solicitor, vendor, agent).  Just getting 'the nod' might open a can of worms for your sale should the vendor get nasty about you picking up further defects etc in the repaired area.pinkboy
