Yep. To be honest I thought prices would be higher by now, but there's lots of demand and as you said there will be plenty of blocks for the next…

Ok so for the blocks that have under 1m slope fall, the prices at Timbertop are around $830 per square meter.

We finally settled yesterday so we will be chasing the builder now to start asap. We have a bit of catching up to do judging from your comments

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.

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