Re: Buying a house in Perth? Knock 30% Off!

I bought in Perth 10 years ago (almost 3:1 exchange rate too!) since then prices have done nothing despite being in the middle of the 'mother of all booms'. Any sniff of a slowdown will bring this...

Re: Buying a house in Perth? Knock 30% Off!

Perth is a giant Ponzi scheme. Outside building houses for new migrants and mining, there’s not much else to keep the Ponzi going. A lot of people are going to get hammered, I’m afraid. Could be as...

Re: Secret Harbour - Family of 5 avg outgoings

I'd guess $350 a week for food, leaves $350 for bills, fuel, insurances, medical expenses, school, clothing etc. $700 p/w would be VERY tight IMO.

Re: Secret Harbour - Family of 5 avg outgoings

You'll need an income of $100K + to get by as long as you don't over extend yourself with loans and what not. Don't expect to have many family holidays, meals out or entertainment with that income,...

Re: What Is 'Cheap' In Australia Compared To The UK?

I'll guess that Bermudashorts house she rents is worth about $1.5 mill + if they were to buy it - so she is getting a bargain by renting and not buying.

Re: Sick of Getting Ripped off In Perth

Join the club. We've been here 10 years now, prices for everything have gone crazy about 3 years ago. I could tolerate it if it had the buzz of a proper metropolitan city, but no, it's crap.

Re: Violent crime escalating in Perth

Definately more crime in Perth over the last few years but perhaps no more than any other City. Trouble is, not much happens here so every incident is reported, therefore it seems like more perhaps.
