What a week in Real-estate!

Prices have dropped by 10-20%, some Melbourne suburbs prices are as low as 8 years ago…. So what’s causing all this and is it real?

Blog – 22nd November 2018

When we experience a week like the one we have just had and then the week we have ahead, it’s understandable why women need their own walk in robe.

We have launched to market this … Continue Reading »
