I hope everyone had a good long weekend!

Well, what’s another week without news about house prices falling?! I’ve included an article this week that shows the changes occurring by state and the effect this is having on the overall housing market.  If you’re in the market to buy or sell, this is worth reading.

Murray Lees talks this week about the complete costs of buying a home.  It’s important to remember all the other fees and charges associated with buying a home – not just the deposit.

We have some new starters at Online Home Loans.  I want to introduce you to Sylvia MacFarlaine, our new General Manager.  To get to know her we’ve done a fun little profile you can read.  If there’s anything you need at all, please don’t hesitate to give her a call, and she’ll be more than happy to help.

For those of you who are apartment hunting this Spring, have put together a guide on all the things you need to know about Strata plans.  Take a look.

With some beautiful weather hitting Melbourne this week (yay!), it’s no better time to think about your outdoor area.  Globe West has just released a new outdoor range that is well worth looking at.

Lastly, I’ve done a round up of the auction results from last weekend.
