To all those who have recently moved into their new homes, I feel both your excitement and pain after having moved into our new home over the last two weeks!  Oh my gosh, it is hard!  To top it off I’ve been sick through the move, so I apologise for the absence of a newsletter the last few weeks. To make it up to you, I’ve made a bumper issue as there has been lots going on.

Big news first – great changes are being made in Victoria to help the housing affordability issue particularly for first home buyers and those in regional areas. Yay!  Let’s hope the other markets follow suit.

Also this week we find Australian’s are holding onto their homes longer, investors are storming back into the market despite interest rate increases, and apparently we have it worse than our parents who endured interest rates of over 17%!

For some lighter reading, check out Darren Palmer’s tips on bedrooms, learn how to build your own IKEA garden, and take a look at Lenny Kravitz – Interior Designer (previously rockstar!).

And take a look at one of our brokers – Melissa Huynh is profiled on the site this week.
