    WA Granny Flat

    Not half built. You plan a 2x1 which can be extended into an 4x2 without much hassle when the subdivision occurs.

    WA Granny Flat

    Thanks INVSTOR. If possible, a 4x2 can be designed and only a 2x1 70sqm part of that can be built. Later after the rezoning, can be extended. Well if the rezoning is really going to happen, this could be a costly option. But if rezoning is quite far away or not too sure, could work...

    WA Granny Flat

    Interested to build a granny flat, but didn't get any quote. Once one of the granny flat builders mentioned $140,000 for a 70sqm GF inclusive of approvals etc, but that is not even brick. Interested to know more about the quote you got.

Called a local plumber (An Aussie Aussie - you all know what I mean) and was charged $480. For a $70 tap from Bunnings. A...

    Potential negative gearing changes

    I really shouldn't get into this as there is no point arguing with people who have made up their minds. Anyway... In another thread, an IP was mentioned in Huntingdale (WA) at $ 375/w. One such property can be bought for 400k. Let's assume both a FHB and an investor will be getting the...

    Perth nightmare!

    30k should not be spent in Thornlie huntingdale area unless you are planning to sell. For a $375/w house, I wouldn't spend more than 15k.

    Where to buy in Perth?

    Langford have changed and I reckon it will do well capital growth wise as well as it is still cheaper compared to all suburbs around it (cannington, thornlie and Lynwood)

    "your property success with renovation" by Jane Slack-Smith

    I don't have a copy, so I don't exactly remember. But I reckon it is not exactly about Reno, but a good read though.
