澳洲Australia property Grattan Institute reports: What sort of h


在澳大利亚 I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo


How do you find out - and identify the biggest gaps between provision and demand?

Ask people.

The Grattan Institute did just that and officially launched their report earlier this evening.

I shall read this (the report) when I have a moment

Was having a conversation with a designer for a major builder this afternoon, bloke about my age, now puzzling about what to do with the six bedroom family home with only him and the missus rattling about in it:

But he said that he is dumbstruck by what people are asking him to design and what they want to build. Never mind the McMansions, even the walk in wardrobes are bigger than the double bedrooms. As we (our design) want him to think of a number and then reduce it by at least 30% this does somewhat prove the point

Above all, people want diversity in housing. An apartment, sure, and a house, yes, and a loft and a hobby farm and a unit in a retirement village

We want to know it's there if and when we want to live in it. Australian houses are getting bigger and bigger, while our families are getting smaller.

Our food palates are becoming more selective and so are our appetites for just about everything else

Cheers

4 bed plus study on a 1200m2 block here. And I love it. So does my missus my 2.5 kids, the vege garden and the cat.

I have a house and block we will grow into. Perfect.

In 20 years I can smash it down and build townhouse, shoeboxes or whatever it is the fickle consumer "thinks" they want at that time. As long as I am prepared to capitalise on the opportunity.

Too many people think short-term. Reverse that and you have solved the vast majority of ills in our society.
