      I work as a finance broker specialising in first home buyers. I am based down in Bunbury so prices are cheaper which does admittedly make it more difficult. However in my experience there are plenty of people who are capable of getting a home however they are not willing to out in the hard yards or they have to get something that fills their wants not their needs, which is always going to be unattainable.

      The amount of people that I have spoken too and told we can get you into a home in the next 6 months however it's going to be a small block and a basic 3x2 but it will get you in the market. But they turn around and say unless I can get my 4x2 with a big back yard and a shed I'm not interested.

      A lot of the time it's all in the attitude!

        Pretty much this I want a million dollar house/land fully furnished and landscaped, shed, 70k+ car, boat or a bike. Be in debt up to their eyeballs, to impress people they don't like.

        Will be lots of houses on the market not just because of the increasing unemployment but when the interest rate rises won't be able to pay for a thing.

          I know this thread is old as hell, but fast paced city life? I don’t think this guy was in Perth.
          Perth is a city with a country mentality. Slow and backward.

                Perth is a diverse city with diverse people. Slow and backward people only see slow and backward people here.

                  whats that old saying you get back what you give out? maybe he just needs to review his current situation

                  i find Perth a fast paced modern international city, sometimes cut throat in business, but embracing of technology and growth and opportunity

                  The best thing about Perth is its isolation and the worst thing about Perth is its isolation, all at the same time
                  I cant help it if your perceptions don't match my reality

                    100% agree with that. It's a part of the world that you can escape the real world from, go at your own pace and have a relaxed lifestyle, provided you can afford it and aren't in too much of a hurry to get stuff from overseas over east. My Niece and her friend who recently stayed here from Germany and travelled over east before flying home after 3 months fell in love with the place due to the weather and the relaxed pace, and that's coming from a pair of 19yr olds.

                    100% disagree with that. Perth travels at an almost comatose pace as crippling bureaucracy puts the handbrake on everything. As far as business is concerned I can only comment from an oil and gas perspective, but all I have witnessed is that this is a place where managers from the rest of the world come to retire and die, either through choice as they know everything is so much slower or through force, they've fucked up so badly in the rest of the world that Perth/Australia is the last sanctuary for the manager with nothing left to lose. Once you've settled here after working in places like Aberdeen, Stavangar, Houston, Dubai, Iraq, Russia and hell, even Africa, you've reached management bedrock.

                    • Its a very safe city...with all the safety cameras and all...also too many people are not willing to work up to the 4x2 with a yard...they want it all and they want it now in an expensive suburb to boot along with the overseas holiday three big screen TV's air con and new cars in the double garage. Then they dont look after any of it....to busy on the fucking I phone 2000... or whatever its up to now.

                        I know quite a few of those oil and gas manager's myself i was a snr welding inspector, welding supervisor, QA/QC in oil and gas and pressure vessels in the 80's to late 90's definitely the place to meet near retirement oil engineers.

                          bureaucracy? hmm, ok yep fair enough i will definitely agree with you that on that one. as far as any management goes? we have none local left. we were daisy cutting through our organisation since '08, well before it became trendy behaviour in other industry to trim the ranks here n there. Australian management was left till later, after running us around and riding us like some sort of fairground attraction the last one made himself redundant during one of the purges, which even to us drones was widely agreed to as a corporate masterstroke.

                          i report to a guy in Dubai. any manager who leaves me the fuck alone for 18 months and then turns up to a conference with quality duty free single malt scotch and bourbon and puts it on the dinner table for everyone to have a good belt at is bordering on totally acceptable management by me
