….any differences here

….when compared to this below……

quite obvious really isn’t, and no its got nothing to do with the age of the kitchen or appliances.

Don’t forget the point of photographs for a property listing on the internet is not just to depict what is there, BUT more importantly to showcase the property / get a buyer excited about it /convince a browser/buyer to make the effort to either phone or visit said property.

Looking at the photos above what would be your first thoughts?

Ringing in my ears, I hear someome saying “First impresssions………”

December 2012 Nelson Property Home Sales “Prelim” Update

Jan 10th, 2013

Whew….that’s another year of figures over!

and that’s folks is…how 2012 finishes.

And that is how 2012 finished up folks. More in the following days, but a heads up if you are an interested party….a buyer/potential buyer of Nelson property who has been following my monthly updates for the last 4 years (over 880 articles posted) , you may think you’ve spotted a developing trend…..in fact an accelerating one if 2012 is anything to take favour from.

Strange? No, and not really if you’ve been reading here regular like…..you’d completely understand why.

Must take out one thing so far thou…..check out the days to sell for 2 bedroom units….amazing! Who says the days of investment property are over? Unfortunately that probably is short term as I suspect its got just a tad to do with interest rates, and after press comments this week….it looks like someone wants to put the “brakes” on this activity.

One could suggest that Nelson offers folks a totally proven investment strategy in the lower end, even if you are only just looking at a totally manageable basic 2 bedroom investment…..but then I’d be offering an opinion….and I committed to you a few months back I’d be holding back in the future from doing so….so therefore I won’t be.

Amazing storm last night…

Rainbow + Lightning from Sunday Night

Dreamed of living in Monaco…

Jan 2nd, 2013

If you happened to live in Nelson’s seaside suburb of Monaco, then this sort of…

….activity is right on your back doorstep.

As a consequence the pricing of properties in this “enclave” is right up there, in terms of Nelson property values.

Just sometimes though…..the thoroughly typical Nelson sunshine can be replaced by other things, like…

….dark skies.

Plenty more photos over at Nelsonians Life….just type “MONACO” (less the quote symbols)  in the search box there here.
