December already!

The spring season has officially finished with a few last minute sales to add to the season tally.

Sales for Spring 2018:
* Residential = 3
* Acreage (one acre +) = 13
* Land = 1

We are seeing new buyers entering the market every week, mainly from south and eastern suburbs of Sydney and still quite a few from the Illawarra. Value for money in this market continues to be in small acreage and lifestyle properties close to town.

Land buyers have plenty to chose from, with currently 25 blocks on the market including developer stock on The Ridge. Building work in Huntingdale Park Estate was a tad quiet last week with Berry seeing a few extra inches of rain and some very strong wind gusts.

On the subject of wind and rain, a lot of homeowners have been attending to fallen tree branches and other minor repairs to their home. Local garden maintenance contractors have had plenty of work on their hands. On the subject of maintenance, below we will hear from Ben Monaghan from Jim’s Building & Pest Inspections.

If you are looking for peace of mind for this festive season, a Building Maintenance Inspection can help you to protect your largest investment – your home. It is effectively a health check for your property.

As the summer months bring longer days, home owners have more time to get things done around their home. If you are thinking of selling, or planning on some maintenance jobs, an inspection is the perfect place to start.

Water leaks and termite damage are two of the most costly and damaging issues that home owners and landlords can encounter.

Although some of the maintenance required to help prevent these issues can be quite basic, many home owners can be failing to identify required maintenance, causing bigger problems to transpire. For instance, the simple act of ensuring your gutters are clear can reduce your risk of water damage and termite activity.

A building report will include a detailed list of maintenance items that could save you thousands of dollars in future damage.

Ben Monaghan from Jim’s Building & Pest Inspections can offer reliability and provide reports via email within 24 hours of an inspection being carried out. Get in touch with Ben to get started!


Our office will be closed from Friday December 21 to Monday January 7.

If you would like to inspect a property during this time, please contact us to arrange an appointment in advance.
Thank you for signing up to our newsletter. We hope you find the information we provide valuable and we look forward to helping you find your dream Berry property!
