澳洲Australia property Meadow Springs - Too good to be true | Sy


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


Thought this one was too good to be true.


Yes and as I clicked on the link I learn that its 80% share. The other 20% is owned by the Department of Housing.

Any suburb called "Meadow Springs" would make me run a mile. It sound like one of those poncy new names that deveopers give locals so the punters don't think they're buying into some less-than-desirable area.

Yesterday I drove past a new estate called "Notting Hill" full of big new spec home builds (flash sign at the entrance) ... get over it people ... in reality it's Thornton.

It's actually not a bad little area, then again, we only visit down that way and don't live there

Reminds me of Mount Pleasant (now known as Cranebrook aka Crimebrook) near Penrith, a big housing commmission suburb. Did everything but live up to its name.

I Googled and found more on the house here:

http://www.housing.wa.gov.au/sharedstart/Pages/9-Chadwell-Close,-Meadow-Springs.aspx

Aside from some of the finishes looking cheap, I quite like the place. Though I suspect Nathan will be buying it in a few years as a burnt out shell. :D

I'm surprised that the agency is only taking a 20% stake. The practice in the UK is that the buyer typically buys a smaller percentage in a shared ownership scheme, and then can increase this over time.

Sounds like a low income housing scheme, to get the battlers into their own houses.

We have a loan from the SA version. They do some quite strange stuff in these 'interesting' loans. Our payments are set at a fraction of our income and index by CPI each year.

Likewise. New estates with the words 'meadow(s)', 'spring(s)' or 'lake(s)' conjure an image of homogenous McMansions surrounding a rather sad-looking man-made body of water. On the plus side, there's usually an 'exclusive country club' and, um, a mall.

Meadow Springs has one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world
