yesterday i went out to Mount Druitt in Sydneys Western suburbs to look at a 1 bedroom unit in a complex. It was on the ground floor with the balcony facing the carpark and the balcoy was right next door to the front entrance doors to the complex. Now with the amount of graffitti around along with kids riding their bikes,(it was about 12pm so obviously no school?) i knew there maybe a few social type problems here and was concerned about the balcony not being enclosed even though the balcony doors had the steel mesh door. It is not tenated but would fetch 210/230 weekly. The real estate agent told me that theStrata wouldnt allow the balcony to be enclosed or caged up as the previous owner had applied before and i was grateful he told me the truth. He could of easily said he didnt know and fobbed me off. Obviously its not me going to live there but i would be concerned if anyone wanted to live there with the balcony only metres away from the carpark and right next to self slamming glass entry door. Maybe some tenants dont mind that but i wonder if it hold back capital gain. I would prefer to enclose the balcony with bars done nicely .
