Chip off the soul block

Patience urged with seasonal transience

Ashely Andrews follows in footsteps of his mum and dad in the property game ASHLEY Andrews from Liquid Property in Subiaco is one of the youngest graduates to achieve the nationally accredited Diploma of Property qualification. At just 20, he is an aspiring property agent, working alongside his parents Richard and Eva. “I was brought up with real estate. Both my parents have been involved in real estate since before I was born, and I’ve been going with dad to appointments since I can remember,’’ he said. “By the end of high school, I was going into the office a few hours a week to help out with filing and data entry, and it was while I was in my first year at university in 2008 studying IT that I took the opportunity to do the property management course. “This allowed me to work part-time in the office handling mostly property management during the week and doing home opens on the weekends. “I enjoyed it so much I enrolled in the Diploma in Property (qualification to become a licensee), which I

Ashley Andrew (20) with dad Richard..

finished in 2009 after taking a year off uni and working full time in the office.”

Richard is first to recognise the value his son brings to Liquid Property.

“Apart from Ashley’s youthful enthusiasm which complements my 28 years in property, his university studies in IT have revolutionised our systems here, giving us much more time to attend to our clients’ requirements,’’ he said. “Ashley doesn’t just talk the talk he has just purchased his own investment property, selected the tenants and gained hands-on experience with its management. “He is more than happy to pass on the knowledge he has gained from his personal property investment and would especially recommend a property portfolio to other young people.” Five years from now, Ashley said he hoped to have completed his degree in IT and hold a triennial certificate, which will let him become licensee of an office. “I’m not sure which path I’ll take but I’m keeping my options open at the moment,’’ he said. ■

‘Balanced’ market expected in western suburbs Agent believes buyers and sellers will be evenly matched on price expectations THERE is an increasing expectation that interest rates will remain steady due to a slowing of the rampant real estate market in the eastern states. According to Caporn Young principal Richard Young, over the past several months the Reserve Bank cranked up interest rates to prevent a bubble in the eastern states market, where property values were surging to record levels. Because of the higher rates, auction clearance levels in Sydney and Melbourne are now falling to below 60 per cent and house price growth, on a monthly basis, is

now between 0.2 and 0.5 per cent. The Perth market did not experience the same surge over the past year, with parts of the western suburbs experiencing a fall. Overall, the median price of a home over the past year increased by 4 per cent, which is well below the long-term annual growth rate of 12.1 per cent. “There is clearly the potential for a strong upswing in property prices in this area, which makes it an excellent time to purchase or upgrade your home in the western suburbs,’’ Mr Young said. “With the lowest unemployment rate

in Australia and strong wage growth levels, it is likely that the overall Perth real estate market will absorb these higher interest rates much quicker than the major eastern states capitals. “The outlook for the western suburbs market remains positive. Sellers have had to moderate their prices and the expectation of steady interest rates will give buyers confidence to purchase. Mr Young predicts 2010/2011 will be be a “balanced” market in the western suburbs with buyers and sellers evenly matched in terms of price expectations. ■

AS the temperature drops, so too does the number of people looking to rent apartments. According to Jones Ballard Property Group’s client relationship manager Siobhan Payne, it was generally more difficult to rent an apartment during the winter months because fewer people tended to move into new rental properties during the June to September period. In addition, the inner and near-city rental market was still digesting a large number of new apartment developments which were completed at the end of 2009. Ms Payne said apartment owners should be patient at this time of year, when vacancy rates tended to rise. “Unfortunately, many first-time investors who manage their investment property begin to panic when vacancy rates rise and focus on making sure the property is leased as quickly as possible rather than taking their time to select the best possible tenant,’’ she said. “Jones Ballard Property Group has found that properties are taking slightly longer to rent than one year ago, but we ensure that thorough checks are undertaken before leasing a property. “It is better to wait one or two weeks longer to find a good tenant rather than pick someone quickly and then find that they do not pay the rent on time or even damage the property. “Unfortunately, there is a segment of the Perth rental market which contains people seeking to rent homes who have a history of 'squatting' in properties until the landlord is forced to take court action to evict them, which can only be a lengthy process.” Ms Payne said this was a matter of good tenant selection, and professional property management would become even more important during the coming months as more first-time property investors bought apartments to coincide with the start of the new financial year. "Many of these investors are hard working people who want to use property to secure their financial future,’’ she said. “In many cases, they do not understand that selecting the right tenant can be just as important as selecting the property itself.’’ ■

Inspired by Asia, and right at home in Perth The attention to detail is meticulous in this stunning Floreat home, writes JANE EVANS ALMOST 10 years in the making, the design of this breathtaking Floreat home was inspired by the owner’s regular travel to China, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore. It is hard to describe the detail that has gone into the resort-style grounds. A gated entry encloses immaculate landscaped gardens featuring stone walkways and water features. Inside the large cedar front door, a spacious formal entrance precedes the open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area. A Miele equipped chef’s kitchen features teak with granite and stainless steel bench tops. It includes two dishwashers, two ovens and an integrated microwave and coffee-maker. There is also a large walk-in pantry and coldroom. The home has five bedrooms and four bathrooms. There is also an acoustic panellined theatre room on the ground floor with tiered seating and

constellation-inspired lighting. A sitting room separated by wooden screens provides the perfect space upstairs to relax. This outstanding family home has a state-of-the-art Crestron technology system that controls everything at a touch of button, including music. Wide cedar-framed glass doors run the length of the living area and slide back to reveal a glamorous landscaped alfresco area, with a built-in pizza oven, under the main roof. A stunning, stone-cladded water feature is the focal point of a limestone wall enclosing an elevated swimming pool and spa. Overlooking the pool is a separate Balinese-style cabana, which has an all-weather flatscreen television, perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon. This tropical oasis may be a long way away from the origin of its inspiration, but it looks right at home in one of Perth’s oldest and most prestigious suburbs. ■

Transcending urban confines Free-flowing living areas and lush surrounds create a fresh inner-city space. By JANE EVANS IN A private urban enclave, just metres from Northbridge, this contemporary double-storey home offers style and space. The sleek modular facade features a secure timber gated entry. It opens on to a timber-decked walkway over a koi fishpond at the foot of the clear glass front door. Inside, the minimalist-look floor plan is characterised by free flowing living spaces and generous bedrooms. A light-filled, concreteaggregate courtyard to the left of the lounge is separated by bifold doors, which withdraw to allow indoor and outdoor space to merge. A retractable outdoor awning over the area makes this a highly versatile space and cordyline Australis plants along the boundary wall add colour. Tasmanian oak flooring creates a low-maintenance interior with warm ambience.

The galley-style kitchen features Ceaserstone bench tops, white high-gloss cabinetry and Bosch and Miele stainless-steel appliances, overlooking the outdoor area. Three bedrooms on the second level each has an ensuite. Also upstairs, double doors open into a home theatre with a designated bar area, projector and screen as well as access to a balcony. The study, or fourth bedroom, is positioned on the lower level and shares bathroom and powder facilities. Other features of the home include a monitored security system, cat 5-cable wiring and reverse-cycle airconditioning. There is an abundance of living space offered on this block, despite its diminutive size of 262.5 square metres. With lush, landscaped surrounds, there is no feeling of urban confinement here. â&#x2013;

The stuff of sweet dreams Close to calm bays, surfing beaches and the wineries of Margaret River, you cannot ask for more, writes JANE EVANS WAKING up with the beach on your doorstep is a luxury most people only dream about. But that is exactly what this Quindalup property offers. In a prime beachfront location, this 893sqm lot has a 30-metre frontage to Geographe Bay Road with sweeping views of the bay and lagoon. A solid brick and iron home with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, spacious living areas and a verandah occupies the rear of the block, set back amidst undulating lawn and trees. A cycle path is across the road and the Quindalup boat ramp is only a minute away. A prime holiday spot, Quindalup is a seaside village within Dunsborough, just minutes from the centre of town and has been a popular holiday destination for

generations of families since 1899. It is close to calm bays, surfing beaches, the wineries of Margaret River, restaurants, cafes and art galleries. It is also central to many South West tourist attractions such as Nilgi Caves, Simmos Ice-creamery, Happs Pottery, Yallingup Beach, Newton House, Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and Meelup Bay, which are all within a 10-minute drive. Dunsborough shops are also just a three-minute drive or a 20-minute walk away. Holidaying in the southwest is not just for the summer months as there is much to do in winter, including visits to the chocolate, cheese and fudge factories and the region’s many fine restaurants. Not to mention the best part – warming up by a log fire afterwards. ■

Not one facet of this commanding home set in pristine bushland fails to impress, writes SAMANTHA JONES IN these modern times, homes like this Yallingup classic are very rare. With an internal and external aesthetic that harks back to days gone by, it’s hard not to be impressed by the breathtaking grandeur this commanding, double storey country home exudes.

There are built-in robes to all five bedrooms and the master room enjoys access to a private ensuite with free-standing character bath. Outside, there are granite retaining walls, peppermint trees and a number of quaint features such as a mini-bridge and rock waterfall.

Additionally, there is a double garage and a large below ground storage room. ■
