Is this true for villas too? My home is a villa in south perth, not a house on a detached block of land.

Hey guys,
My living room is a bit dark. Does that affect resale price and capital growth? If so, does adding a skylight (velux window with blinds) completely eliminate the…

Sorry, skylight is facing west, not north. Will that provide sufficient light in the morning hrs?

Wall cracks, building footpath as per CSIRO BTF18

That is brilliant, thanks so much! Would this work normally be done by landscapers?
Would 50mm fall be sufficient for the graded soil and builder's plastic?
Lastly, the wall cracks (2-3mm) were…

Sell or hold the property?

Good point, seems like a nice growth from 1979. I might hold 😀 Just having to pay so much for all these jobs seems like such a waste.

Thanks so much for the detail reply!
Would you have any pictures of what the above solutions would look like? Sounds like the last option may be the cheapest one.

No sales pitch here mate 😀
I can afford to hold. That's not a problem. This is an investment property. I guess the question comes down to whether the property will…

Would just the concrete suffice, without agi pipe? At this point holding this property may not be viable and I may need to sell. Investing 20k (including footpath, agi…

Is the type of concrete you did normally more expensive than plain concrete?
