White picket fences and backyards with mulberry trees. Apartments and town houses and villas and everything in-between. It's got a bit of everything.

Simmering Pot

The Perth market is like a simmering pot.  Bubbling along with a steady flame underneath. It should have burnt out long ago but our market continues to pop and bubble, full of life and heat. Most recently the investors have come back, adding even more fuel to the fire. ‘Mums and Dads’, with cheap borrowed

Take Two

First it was 5th of February, that didn’t happen, but after two long years our esteemed Premier has seen fit to open up WA and unleash us to the rest of the country.  For 697 days we have been locked away in our hermit state here in WA, kept away from family, struggling to maintain

One Year In

It has been over a year since I joined Baston & Co. Property and it has been busy.  Over 80 sales and hundreds of offers. I am told this isn’t “real” real estate. That it is not normal to have multiple offers on almost every listing and being swarmed with people in home opens. Although

Fair Wear and Tear

Unfortunately, it’s part of life when it comes to property – pipes leak, ovens stop working, windows get broken, and fittings and fixtures wear out over time. What can tenants and landlords expect when repairs are needed in a rental property? We often have owners ask about the condition of their property when a tenant

To Buy or Not to Buy?

I had the classic phone call last week “have I paid too much?”.   This was from the successful Buyer in a multiple offer scenario.  To be successful he had to pay more than the other Buyers. Classically defined, Buyer’s remorse is an example of what psychologists call cognitive dissonance. Buyer’s remorse stems from a fear of making the wrong choice and from feelings of guilt about being extravagant.

Time to Shine

After my last appointment yesterday evening, I sat in my car, rejected offers spread across the passenger seat, calling back Buyers who had missed out. Parked in a laneway at night, cabin light on, making the last phone calls of a very long day. Hardly glamorous. “I’m sorry but you’ve not been successful this time,

Welcome 2021

Welcome 2021. The market is hot. I haven’t seen this much active buyer participation since the Mining Boom. Yes, I have been selling real estate long enough to clearly remember the heady days between May and September of 2006. It is important to note, even back then, with stock levels below 5000 in the metro
