    Agreed.

    On a day by day basis, we can be described as 'frugal' as we avoid all eating out or spending any money during work day but if we want to go on a holiday or buy a better quality product,...

    Flagstaff is considered a newer suburb but Pukete is new and up coming with a lot of new developments there.

    Pinehill is great. The only unfortunate thing about Pinehill is that most of the houses were developed in early 2000's and are part of the leaky house syndrome. However, the house you mentioned...

    If you don't currently live in Thames then you might have problems when/if the tenant leaves and you would need to find new ones. A lot to...

    Did you happen to have your owner occupied with BNZ as well?

    Anyway, I surely was not that special and the only discount I got was 5.06% (instead of the advertised 5.09%) for 3 years.

    We've found that adding bedrooms are far more cost effective than a new bathroom. There are far too many different costs involved in adding a new bathroom. Plumbing and waterproofing is not simple or...

    Ouch!

    How much was the roof replacement excluding the $4000 for asbestos removal?

    Also, were you aware that they were going to do asbestos test before you went ahead with the re-roofing?
