    Hi all,

    we are first home buyers and wanting to purchase land facing a sloping street. This is in a new estate and the road won’t be busy. We will be building a double storey house so the headlights won’t affect us

    would you purchase this land if it was a good price?

    How would you mitigate car lights eg fencing or bushes.

    For me personally, it would have to be a damn good price .... Cars running into a living room has happened before and will happen again.

    Water can be a problem too during a deluge.

    You also won't be able to sell to many asians (bad fengshui) - would be ok if you were at the top of hill looking down the street though.

    Factoring in the cost of the retaining wall at the front, maybe.
    I'd be more interested in where your driveway is to be, in the side st (rhs of pic) fine, if on the main road, PASS

    No I wouldn't buy that. Not because of it being on an intersection, but due to the sloping block.

    If you are thinking twice about the purchase, potential buyers in future will do the same when you sell.

    i'm guessing the block slopes away from the street as well?

    No thank you.

    Image of bad feng shui. No amount of incense will help
