Hot Water, Cold Water, Gas, Electricals, Communication, Broadband, Intercom and more…

Hot and Cold water pipes joined together ready for pressure testing. Once testing is completed, a device called a 'Tempering Valve' allows Cold water into the Hot Water pipes to ensure that the hot water cannot burn anyone.

It is not very often you get to see inside the walls of a building. By the time you move into your Linden Apartment, the walls are up and freshly painted, but behind the scenes is an absolute maze of cables, pipework, fibre optics and more.

Here you can clearly see the Hot Water, Cold Water and gas neatly installed and heading into the apartments from the services riser. And snaked in between all of this is the fire systems cables, broadband network conduit, building intercom cables and some electrical.

Advances in technology have allowed for faster install, safer and improved products. Like the water pipes. No longer are you required to bend copper, put in complex joins that require a naked flame to join them. And don’t forget the cost of copper these days!

We are extremely happy with the quality these trades are displaying on site at The Linden Sutherland.

Australia’s housing market is suddenly heating up again

After a two-year slide, Australian house prices look to have bottomed out, sending buyers flocking back to the market.

Case in point: An auction for a four-bedroom house in the Sydney suburb of Ryde on Saturday attracted about 100 people. Spirited bidding pushed offers A$226,000 above the reserve price, before it finally sold for almost A$1.5 million ($1 million) — a buzz last seen during the boom years.

“A lot more people now are getting concerned that things are going to go up in the next six to 12 months so they’re trying to buy now,” said real estate agent Phil Allison, who handled the sale. As recently as six months ago, it was difficult to elicit a single bid at an auction for a house just around the corner, he said.

Australia’s Housing Market Is Suddenly Heating Up Again

Post election confidence good property market

The re-election of the Coalition Government will likely see a return in confidence to the Sydney housing market, local developer Peter Gribble says. 

Mr Gribble is an economist and the Managing Director of Quantum Group, a property development firm that has undertaken a number of projects within the Shire, including The Linden, which is currently under construction and The Adelong, which is settled and owners have moved in.

Mr Gribble believes the back to back elections caused some hesitation in the market, due to a lack of certainty around future policy.

Labor went to the federal election spruiking reforms to negative gearing in an attempt to address “housing affordability”. This led to significant reduction in enquiries.

However, with the election now behind us and the next three years of policy locked in, he believes investors and first home buyers will likely return to the market.

“My incling is that there is a big sigh of relief that we’re going to retain the current government because there’s a lot more certainty in the policies…” he explained.

“Changes to negative gearing has always been a problematic proposal. When Paul Keating first raised the idea it created a lack of confidence in the markets,” he continued.

“People stopped investing, which caused a reduction in building and rents went up as a result. So, I think retaining that policy is a recognised position to increase housing stock.”

Mr Gribble said there currently wasn’t an oversupply of new apartments in the Sydney market. In fact, in a lot of suburbs, close to 90 per cent of new apartments are being sold off the plan. This is leading to a shortage in the market itself.

However, the return of consumer confidence in the second half of 2019 will likely lead more developers to add projects to their books.

While, Mr Gribble believes the retention of the Coalition Government is a net positive for the market, he believed more reforms are needed to really address the housing affordability issue without negatively impacting upon equity.

The best way to do this, he believes, is by scrapping legislation which mandates banks set their loan serviceability rates 7.2 per cent, double the current interest rate.

The point of the policy is to stop people from getting loans while interest rates are low and then not being able to pay them back if they rise.

However, Mr Gribble points out, interest rates would need to go up more than 18 times to hit the current serviceability rate. He believes that is too high.

“People can’t borrow as much because of that disparity and I think that is something that needs to be addressed urgently,” he said.
