Why RVs should not control your buying or selling decision

We are often asked what the RV (rateable value) of a property is; there is a lot of misunderstanding out there about what an RV actually is. Did you know most RVs are generated without anyone ever visiting the property? The narrow purpose of RVs is to help councils determine how to apply rates to a property. RVs don’t usually take into account factors that make a property better (or worse); for example the condition and presentation of the house and land, the effects of any redecoration/renovations, perhaps improvements that didn’t require consent, chattels and appliances, or the potential use of the land etc. #tip #seekadvice


Make your kitchen shine

Not only is the kitchen a functional space for food preparation, but it’s also a hub for entertainment and socialising. The kitchen can ultimately make or break your sale so make sure you tantalize buyers with a clean, modern workspace that beckons them into the kitchen and surrounding home. Clean workspaces make your floors, kitchen surfaces, and bench tops look larger and more spacious. Just as you express your personality in living areas with signature pieces, your kitchen needs the same loving touch. #homeinspiration #tip

Looking to buy?

Buying property is expensive, and it can cost even more if something goes wrong. Paying professionals to help you is a good investment. The cost of not getting sound advice can be very high if things go wrong. That’s why it’s important to have a good team of professionals to support you. Find a lawyer or conveyancer before you start looking at properties. Buying can move fast when you find something you like. When time is tight, or you've missed out on several homes, it can be tempting to skimp on getting a full builder's report. This is risky. We recommend you hire a qualified property inspector to check a property before you make an offer, or make the offer subject to a building inspection. #buyingproperty #professionaladvice
