We heard back in a couple of days too, valuation came back 4k more than what we paid, so all good.

I agree regarding the comparison with Timbertop. I went there a few weeks ago and the prices had increased since last year but not as much as I thought.
When is…

That is crazy expensive, considering these blocks were sold at around 550$ per square meter or something like that.

I went through the same process before and I understand your frustration, just keep in mind that there are government agencies involved, and they have their own pace of doing…

One the statement of compliance is issued, then the developer lodged the plan to the titles office for registration. Once the titles are released (2-3 weeks), then we'll get a…

Thanks I did that and they basically forwarded my call to the "sales agent" but then got a voicemail recording.

Thanks for the reply :)
How many blocks are there in the estate in total do you know?
I left a couple messages yesterday but I received no…

We were interested in a block in this area but we drove by yesterday and there's no sales office, nothing there? I tried calling the number on their website and…

Not yet, we are getting the driveway built this week, so we will move in next week. :)
Congrats on your settlement, very exciting!

We're trying to arrange for our driveway to be built next week, but apparently our water taps in the front are exactly on the pathway in front of our door,…

BBQ sounds about right to me, let's do it as soon as we see some sunshine :)

We didn't afterall. We spoke to a few people but they didn't fill me with more confidence than our own builder's reports, so I skipped them.

Not really going through the contract, just a walkthrough around the house, making sure they haven't missed anything, and also that there's nothing they have to fix (there usually is…

We had our PCI last week as well, hoping to get keys end of next week.

Oh sorry, in terms of the driveway, you need to send your design to the design assessment panel of somerfield (dap@somerfield.com.au) to get it approved. For the driveway…

That's great, congrats! Our pci is in two weeks. Everything's gone really well.
Regarding opticomm, have you done anything yet, like looking for one of their providers etc?
