    Building fails for various reasons, mainly foundation settlement. The issue in OPAL is well clear now, just require restrenthinig the HOB or related area, just column panels.

    I don’t have any property in OPAL or not considering buying in Sydney next couple of years unless see a good opportunity.

    Translation - Our property sales spruikers are still chasing buyers and we have doubled the number of phone operators since December. They dont mention the word Opal when they call them from offshore at dinner time.

    She must be thankful, the buyers asked half the price. Deal or no deal. Since new building sellers wouldn’t come so low as their buying price is too high...

    I don’t think even for half price no one will be buying it. I won’t buy. I don’t know any of you think this as bargain at half price.

    Now Its the sad story of sydney.

    Personally, I would offer around 1/3rd. Reward is worth for the risk, mainly the present market condition. Mkt itself correct another 10% if so Opal May correct double of itself from current buying price. Need to factor it.

    Now listed for 600k +.
    1/3 means around 200k for 2BR. Mhh thats good bargain. With that much loss why someone will sell it.. its all depends on personal circumstances.

    I think the original price is way higher, not 600k.

    I think there are a lot of keyboard warriors who would struggle to complete on this kind of purchase. It makes great media and forum speculation in the meantime however... I struggle to enter the banter as I feel so bad for the owners. It must be awful.

    Inside Opal Tower’s ‘ground zero’


    I know this is not the ideal situation but if its his "dream home"
    If hes going to live in it, then the value shouldnt matter.

    Unless he has to get a val.

    Speaking of which, if you got a pro valuer, how much would it come up as?

    It wont matter, lenders would be very weary ATM given the RC and building probs, so you would prob have to get money elsewhere or have cash.
