    So what will you be buying?

    I guess the point Im trying to make is when we peddle single answer solutions to complex problems we never solve anything. This is quite often in the interests of particular groups. Yes you are correct that planning is some areas is a problem, Northern beaches is a prime example but its not the...

    So what will you be buying?

    Still chasing down the podcast but this one shows how just changing planning laws wont solve the problem. https://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2024/04/easing-planning-rules-wont-solve-housing-shortage/ Also a good one from ANU re housing and the drivers...

    So what will you be buying?

    Thanks for the info re tax, there is always more to the story. There was an interesting Democracy Sausage podcast a while back where they asked a Professor of planning and development why local planning was causing Australias housing crisis. Her response was we approved 500k developments in the...

    Also only apply the capital gains discount for new or redeveloping property. We should only get discounts for creating housing not just shuffling the existing stock. Build to rent works really well in the States especially in big uni towns. We were in Raleigh NC for a while and there were huge...

    You know you're getting old when ...

    I think the thing the current generation would struggle to understand the most is that an idiot had a well paying job, single income family and could own a house and a car comfortably.

    FAST BIKE BOX COURIER FOR INTERSTATE DELIVERY?

    Alright back online looking at 5 seaters... what the hell is happening with the Peugeot e-2008? Looks like they have cut about 30% off the prices at the moment and there is stock! I know they are Peugeots so kinda shit but the price point is nuts.

    Electric Vehicles etc

    Its a reasonable question to ask as we have thought about it a fair bit. Its not specific people or times more when both kids have friends over etc and everyone needs to eat. This happens more often than it did and will get more for the next few years and taper off in about 5-6 years. We are...

    This is us. Currently I do a 50km round trip commute 2 days and the other 5 the car does a few kms to and from the shops/beach/school. There are plenty of days where the car doesnt even move. With a 60-80km range on the outlander battery Im thinking we will be 75% battery powered with the...

    Kid have friends so we run out of seats quickly. Had 3 extras over the weekend so the 7 seats is to accommodate the overflow. Trips to Melbourne and Canberra are fine for infrastructure as like you said there is plenty on route, as long as they are all working and not being used. I see there...
