I'm a potential first home buyer in WA and I'm just here to read and ask a few questions about the process. I want a nice place to live while reducing the risk I'll somehow get a dud or lose everything I own. I'm not a property investor though I'd like to believe some good ones exist, renovating dumps and making an ethical return on investment. On the other hand I'm tired of seeing obviously subdivided 250sqm hovels with paper thin shared walls and every possible corner shaved and a high price tag. I really don't like that and I feel it's unethical.
