Initial offer based on what we already know needs doing and the agent said she wouldn’t offer more than 200-220k for it as is.
    Good luck!!!!

    Yes, unless you waive them but that would be silly.

    Yes, obviously don't do building and pest until a conditional offer has been accepted.

Always feel sorry for Sydney and Melbourne families. I have no idea how you repay a mortgage on an average family home on an average income in those cities.
    Not everywhere outside the city we live near Byron bay and the town we grew up in the average price for a 3 bedroom house is around 700k
