Our Backyard – Anglesea

Welcome to Anglesea 

End of financial year is coming up and with it of course Tax time!

It’s always a good opportunity to chat to your accountant about whether you need to be investing and the best ways of doing so. There are a few different ways to go about it but the number one is purchasing an investment property – negative gearing, positive gearing, buying in your self-managed superannuation fund?

If you already have an investment, then this is a timely reminder that whilst you have tenants in your property – make sure you are attending to any repairs or alteration that need to be undertaken so you can claim it. Many landlords wait until a tenant has moved out to do the work, but doing it this way is not a benefit. I always believe if you have good tenants then why not look after them too. Sure it can be a bit inconvenient if it comes to major work like painting, replastering, new roof etc but these big ticket / higher expense items are really the ones that need to work for you.

This week, officially winter also changes our mind set and we start thinking about warmth and how to get the most from our property. It’s a simple one but so many homes in Anglesea don’t have adequate insulation. Investing in insulation will keep your property warmer which of course will mean you won’t have to have the heater blasting for longer periods of time. Being a sunworshipper I think there is nothing better than curling up in a bean bag with winter sun coming through the glass and reading a magazine or book…… have a good look around your home, is there a major wall that is not utilising sun aspect effectively? Putting in glass doors or windows to let in light and warmth and maximise a positive feature will always hold a property in good stead for the future, even if they are high up along the roof line for next door / privacy aspect.

If you are considering listing your property for sale over the winter then making sure the home is warm for an open for inspection will also make buyers feel more comfortable.  Dark and cold homes will definitely have an impact on the overall feel and vibe a home will project to potential purchasers.

Anglesea does not have gas connected, so wood heaters, open fires and split systems are the main options for warming up. It’s super important to make sure older heaters are checked or replaced as there have been some tragic stories of carbon monoxide poisoning. If in doubt throw it out! Also get a chimney sweeper to check or give your Flue a good clean!

There is a genuine shortage of properties for sale at the moment and an abundance of buyers, why not list your home in winter so your property stands out from the crowd! Don’t wait until spring when you have to compete with loads of other stock!

See you at the open for inspections or any property by appointment.
