Property Headlines: House price forecasts, Property pessimists back peddling + the latest data  | Property Insiders [VIDEO]

The media seems to love bad news more than it does good news. All over Australia we are bombarded with bad news, and nowhere is the more bad news more interested in my home city of Melbourne. But when we look back at the many bad news predictions about property made earlier this year by…

Who’s responsible for repairs and maintenance?

Property repairs and maintenance are a leading cause of argy-bargy between landlords and tenants (and not a lot of fun for the property manager in the middle). Why? Because often the parties are unclear who is responsible for what. Ask landlords, tenants and property managers what is the number one bone of contention at a…
