Sinking Renovations

How the property falls may create renovation falls. These comments refer to the article: PROPERTY BUST IS GOOD FOR MOST HOMESELLERS.

Exploiting the First Home Grant

The wrapping fat cats. Neil, I wonder how many of the First Home Owner Grants have ended up in the hands of the wrappers. The wrappers rely on the Grant to give them their first capital gain- the first of many (the others being the mark-up on the price and the interest rate hike). Did…
