While this is not Australian property news, how could I go past the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this week! Take a look at Nottingham Cottage, their soon to be new home within Kensington Palace.
Our lead story this week is Frank Valentic (of The Block fame), a buyers advocate, sharing his views on why this is the best time to buy.
An article I found surprising this week, were survey results from Finder showing that almost half of homeowners fail to ask for a better interest rate! I know getting a home loan, or reviewing one is a daunting process, however, you could be saving thousands. Give us a call if this is you (or click on our Find Your Rate button) and we can help you – wouldn’t this be a great start to 2018?!
Another study just out shows houses on streets with silly names can be 20% cheaper than surrounding streets! With current house prices, maybe it’s not so bad to have an embarrassing street name….
Asher Keddie from Offspring is selling her country estate in the Macedon region – it looks amazing! Check it out if you’re looking for a tree change.
And lastly, for those building (or thinking of building) a home, I’ve included a simple guide to some key terms you will need to know.
Have a great week.
