Inner West. Victorian Manor. When I was still at uni I used to catch the train and every time I rode past the Inner Western suburbs from Croydon to Macdonaltown I would stop whatever work I'm doing and stare out the window to look at the Victorian Manors. There is one in particular which was pink that would make me sigh. It was a bit 'Painted Ladies' and a bit 'Full House'
Speaking of price, House 2 which I mentioned here was passed in at auction. The highest bid was waaaay way out of our budget. Totally. Yeah, I'm glad we didn't bother with that one or we would have just wasted our money on building reports and whatnot. That price tag is nowhere near the ballpark figure that the real estate agent indicated. It's a different ballpark in a different city. Why bother attracting the interest of potential buyers by indicating a value (much) lower than the reserve price when there's a good chance they'll be priced out? It doesn't matter how many people register for auction if they can't afford it, it won't sell. It's just a big waste of time and money for the buyer. It just makes the whole house hunting experience even uglier than it already is.
On a much lightet note, here's what Bubby did to my freshly cleaned oven door.
It's a work of art, it is.
