Granny flats in Sydney have become a new dwelling mantra for the first home buyers and investors in order to reduce outlays. The government has also begun to approve them at far higher rates. The figures show a leap of over 75% in approval rates last year, says Stephen Nicholls for the Sydney Morning Herald.
Which room is the most important one that buyers focus on when they determine if they like a home or not? And, perhaps more surprisingly, which type of room is considered not important by the vast majority of people, both men and women?
I found the answer in a new article in the real estate section of news.com.au.
First home buyers show a variety of emotions- they are energised, too nervous for their own comfort, a little dazed and extremely curious about so many things. To make matters easier for them, let us try and find out a few pointers that may help them. I take cue from an article I read recently on Realestate.com.au.
Safer windows required at home
I recently read an article that talks about the alarming rate at which children fall each year from windows of multi-storey buildings. It begins with a chilling line “How many more children must plunge off second storey – or higher – buildings before action is taken?” The article certainly raises a valid point while blaming parents and building developers equally for such accidents. Home windows have weak flyscreens that fail to bear the weight of children. In addition, houses use faulty windows that are locked open beyond 12.5 centimetres.
