If I go, there will be trouble And if I stay it will be double So come on and let me know Should I stay or should I go? and although a quick Google search will reveal that the real meaning behind the famous words written and sung by Mick Jones, relates to the turbulent relationship he shared at that time with American songstress Ellen Foley, one could…

It's Time For 'Us' - Lets Downsize

It would be fair to say, that over the past 16 years of physically standing in thousands of home opens, and meeting the tens of thousands of people who have attended them, I have come across many a couple who have 'downsizing' as the key reason as to why they are looking for a new home.

The Sentiment of Downsizing to Fund Retirement

A number of my current real estate conversations, are with retirees who are looking to sell their large family home, in order to downsize to a smaller, lower maintenance property, whilst freeing up some much needed funds, in order to help them further fund their later years. On the surface, this seems a very practical approach, that provides a straight forward solution to a very real need. Selling an older larger asset, that in monetary terms is more valuable than…

As house prices continue their downward trajectory on the eastern seaboard, property owners across the Nullarbor are watching on with interest. Perth is more than four years into a housing downturn that is yet to bottom out after median house prices peaked at $585,000 in November 2014, according to Landgate figures.
