    with 623m2, this site is at least a potential 3-4 unit development site depending on zoning. Possibly multi level. In that case, it may well me a good price for a developer even at $1.2 million

    Driverless cars and work productivity?!? Bah humbug We already have the next best thing!!! car pooling. For every 3 days out of 4 you can sit back, relax, hammer away at the laptop etc while the designated driver takes you to your place of work or close to it.

    Personally at this stage 60-70% is ideal Unless you have acheived your financial/wealth building goals, a low LVR is also high risk because your assets are being lazy and not working hard enough for you.

    In Auss, $20 would get you a couple of McDonalds value meals and not much else. $22 here can get you lunch at a 5 star Shangrila hotel's buffet if you book tickets in advance.
