That leaves us enough to do the roof and other repairs straight up and have a nice amount left for other non-essential improvements (painting, air con upgrades etc). 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

    Yes, sorry should have said small inland towns that aren't touristy. Or middle of nowhere type towns.

    We are on the coast, surrounded by beaches, near the great ocean rd.. we are touristy-ish. But... there's barely any job prospects here. Hence the cheap prices.

    Out of interest what do people do there in terms of supporting themselves? Is it mainly retired people?

    I always wonder how people live out in small towns and how they find work.

    Not sure about there but where I live it’s a lot of FIFO/DIDO workers, farmers (cane mostly), mining and resource related
