    Have a look at this website


    https://renovationsdirect.com.au/ser...terior-stairs/

    They are Brisbane based but you can do an estimate of a new stair case on their website

    The roof price I re-roofed mine like 14 years ago it was $15k old Roof taken off (asbestos) and re roofed with colourbond that component only was $8k

    Most of quotes will be on labour

    Trades I know will charge an extra 20% for collecting all the supplies and add it to your bill.

    Hi pages you could put a job lead to get an estimate but $15k it would want to be some fancy stair case and a full qld lander style

    Has it been on the market for a while? If yes then they would probably be more open to negotiating , there really is no formula for making an offer , it depends on the interest and how motivated the owners are - always ask the agent - has there been any offers and what price do the owners want? Then offer what you can afford and what you think based on recent sales , if it will cost say approx $20k for repairs say to the agent (if based on his response to the above questions) we would like to offer $230 as we need money for the repairs - but whatever you end up offering just make sure your ready to sign a contract as an offer means nothing unless you can show your ready to commit - we’ve sold many homes for full
    Ask or even above the sale price - especially now as the market here (Sydney) is on the move again

    There's 25 houses currently for sale where I live between 160-300k.

    Most are 3br, 1 bath, 2 car garages. Brick...

    The only thing is, there's not a lot of job opportunities here


    1.1mil gets you 4.5ha on the outskirts of town in 4 double bedrooms, 2 bath, 3 car garage with 3 living areas, fully equip outdoor kitchen, alfresco, has games room, bar..... and is a reasonably modern/ recent build.

    I’m sure lots of places! We were looking at one place on an almost 900m2 block in town, close to the beach and CBD (almost walking distance), 3 beds, fully air con etc for $199k negotiable. There are quite a few (20+) between the $250k-$$300k. Another we looked at was a newer (1997) 4 bed house on an almost 800m2 block with a pool for $249k. A bit further away from town (15 minute drive) but still within 5 minutes of all essential amenities in a quiet area close to the beach. Here where I am, high $300k and above is considered ridiculously priced. I’m in a fairly large regional town/city and we have been badly affected by the downturn in mining however things are picking up again and prices are rising again.

    Do you live in a town that starts with a G and ends with a E by any chance?!

    Heaps of places in Adelaide for under $300k aswell. You’ll be 40mins to an hr from the city depending on traffic (35kms north or south). Some parts are pretty dodgy myself I wouldn’t live there at all. I’m 5 mins to the beach can see the ocean from my balcony. My area is t cheap anymore but I’ve bought and sold houses prior to owning this one so made a lot of money on the side
