    Reverse psychology? If it's marketed badly it must be cheaper and hence people will fight for it :D

    Not many things are better than chocolate tho

    Mocha chocolate Tim tams... amazing. A big fan here.

    Edit: is actually "Expresso martini"
    But I have to agree.... chocolate and coffee go so well together.
    I also like the Oxfam fair trade chocolate with coffee nibs. Very addictive.

    The upside is unlike chocolate, the t/h won't melt in the sun thanks to the splitty in the bedroom.

    Looks more like a rental ad than a for sale ad.

    Ones like this wouldn't impress me if I was a vendor, nothing wrong with the photos or the blurb but I feel made a critical mistake (especially if you think of notifications).

    Ok you have me completely stumped.
    Is it Piper = "pied piper" --> death -->Fawkner --> cemetery, Ash --> Cremation -->Death?

    Those photos are superb compared to some of the effort SA agents put in

    Someone has serious bowel problems and can't sleep or the agent got it wrong.

    Plot twist. Its the new owners: "What possessed us to pay 1.4mil?? I just found out the sellers bought it for 700k 6 years ago...?"
