    Is there a way for landlords to join forces and boycott kmart?

    I think this has been mentioned, but electric fan heaters are almost 100% efficient ;) I think what you are worried about is that the overall system of turning your cash into heat is not very efficient. :D I suggest open fireplaces in each room. Think of the ambiance!

    Driverless cars - the biggest potential impact to real estate?

    I think there will be some small shifts in which areas are popular, but overall property areas will keep a similar relationship in price. Some regional areas may get opened up more though. Driverless car to and around the Hunter Valley? Yes please! I think though that Driverless cars are...

    Millers Point Airbnb? Two one bedroom apartments sold together.

    I wonder how something like this would go on airBNB. Needs a renovation... But not much airBNB competition in the area. http://www.realestate.com.au/property-terrace-nsw-millers+point-119932913

    Escape room games

    I love the concept of these and badly want to start my own as a business. But I looked at the prices they charged, and the cost to set one up... I am not convinced that there is a huge amount of money in it unless you are super busy.

    Anyone else's phone go forward one hour this morning?

    I had always laughed at the whole curtains fading idea, but this made me actually stop and think that there is something to it. Same with the skin cancer. Apologies if I am just really slow to realise this and you guys were poking fun at people to make the joke without thinking about it -...

    Very bad experience with a property managers

    Fair enough, I have only used Fair Trading for one other dispute, but it was quite effective. What would you recommend as a good way to resolve a dispute if they will not respond to calls or emails?

    Very bad experience with a property managers

    I have also had a very bad experience with this Property Management company. It looks like Fair Trading will also be the best way to resolve my dispute. It's unfortunate - at first the PM was fantastic and I could not have been happier. My lesson was not as expensive as yours though.

    Good deal found

    I contacted scha9799 and got some vague details and narrowed it down to the house I thought it could be. It didn't seem like a overly good deal to me and he would not give me the actual address without meeting in person (fair enough too if he thought it was a good deal for someone). Below...

    Legal action against Coles, need advice

    From what was said I think she made a very reasonable decision and it was not really the reaction of someone trying to run from security. From my understanding, a person in normal clothes stopped her accused her of shoplifting but could not produce a credible security ID. Not knowing if they...

    Legal action against Coles, need advice

    I totally agree that legal action is not the right choice. Which jerrybee acknowledges a few posts in. He was pissed off and over-reacted, but calmed down and is happy to look at the reality of the situation. But I don't think it should just be dismissed as a case of getting over it...

    Do you know this Tree and it's strange fruit

    Looks like it could be a White Malay apple (Syzygium malaccense) which is an Australian Native. http://www.fruitlovers.com/WhiteMalayApple.jpg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnMKQmW7hqs

    Recovering arrears after the tenant vacates

    I do understand insurance is the best bet but that did not work out how I expected :( I had it but I did not understand it correctly and the coverage when month to month rather than in a lease was 2 weeks only. I have since changed to EBM. What I am looking for is the procedure for going...

    Recovering arrears after the tenant vacates

    I have done as much reading as I can but I am not totally clear on how this works. Most threads only cover getting the tenant out. After that mostly people seem to say recovering money is very hard, but no specific process. So what is the process exactly? I understand you can get an...

    Check your credit card statements thoroughly, (especially Woolworth/Qantas).

    I checked that same thing with my CC company and they said that any payments get applied to the cash advance first. I have done a cash advance when my debit card was not working and then transferred the money online between accounts on the spot and aside from a small extra charge I had no...

    Check your credit card statements thoroughly, (especially Woolworth/Qantas).

    How do your auto payments work? Does it pay off just the new charges that are due, or the entire balance of the card? The way the auto payments were explained to me on my card (when I rang to confirm) was that it paid off the entire balance, (or the minimum amount). Not the new charges...
