    Driverless cars - the biggest potential impact to real estate?

    I would still trust a driveless system over some of the idiots on the road today. I surf alot and people ask me "are you scared of the sharks?" And I say "no, I'm more scared of the drive to the surf". I think for it to work all existing cars would have to be taken off the road and these...

    termite protection suggestions

    I had a chemical barrier done around my qld IP for $1000. Different state and property but you could expect to pay that. Ring around for some over the phone quotes to get a better idea on cost. Sorry I can't recommend anyone in the Blacktown area. Goodluck! Cheers, Fresh.

    first time buying looking for advice and opinions.
