How hot was it last week? If you’re like me the air-conditioning has been running around the clock! So, I’ve dug out some tips to help keep your home cool. For those with a Queenslander (and spending time on your beautiful verandah), I’ve also included some renovation inspiration.

Aside from the heat, there was an influx of data released last week to close out last year. We’re seeing record levels of home loans being taken out, and homes selling the fastest we have ever seen. If you’ve got your eye on your dream home, the message is you will need to move quickly.

With school well and truly back for the year I’ve found a report that shows which school zones are driving prices of houses up and up! Ouch!

Lastly, the RBA held interest rates again and auction results continue their strong start to the year.
