    Does anyone here care much about street view? Or couldn't care less? And if you are, how fussy are you with the street? As in... do you get into the details such as what type of trees along, what kind of neighbours facade are, etc? Let's exclude the demographic (people) part.

    Pictures may give an indication of how busy a street is (cars, parking, pedestrians). If I can't see at least two cars up on bricks or burnt out, I'm in the wrong price range :oops:

    This house looks fine. It shows a loving family unit. It's the neighbouring houses where the grass is 2 feet tall and there are three Custom Choppers parked out front and shoes slung over the power lines that give residents like me the creeps. The properties with six foot high barbed wire fences covered in black plastic can be a bit off putting.

    I use street view more in a recreational sense.

    Sometimes I have spotted people I know. Of course the face as been pixilled but you can still work it out who it is.

    I've spotted my car parked at work and at a local haunt.

    Strangely, I spotted an ex friend's car parked in the street near my house several months before the Mrs did the bolt. Hhhmmm.

    I would have one of the best views in Warners Bay, I can see across Lake Macquarie to the Awaba Art Gallery as well as Speers Point and Munibung Hill. I can see myself in my dotage on the verandah in a rocking chair, the view is absolutely beautiful at the moment. I love it and so do visitors.
    Downside? I have a steep driveway ... :D

    With all the technology these days I think its only a matter of time before someone comes up with a new app. Yep you heard it first here.......forget Street View.....try....Strip View.

    I'll leave it up to your imagination but it will definitely be a money spinner!

    In housing commission areas I look to see how many houses have a lounge on the verandah.
    I always look at street view. It shows crossings, bus stops etc.

    A lounge on the verandah is neither here nor there. The ones on the front lawn are more of a worry. I've even seen them on a skillion roof and watched them slide off lol.

    Are you knocking that 'Mediterranean look' so common to certain areas in the southwest?

    for a PPOR I assume.
    yes, street appeal is a major factor I consider.
    tree lined streets are nice. high side of the street. well presented neighbouring houses, northerly aspect etc etc etc

    for a IP not so much, but do avoid sofas on the front verandah's

    Throw a few fire crackers over the fence and there'll be bedlam.

It seems that the levelling out of property price rises hasn’t deterred celebrities from investment properties. Nicole has bought her fifth apartment in a complex in Milsons Point in Sydney. This article explains why she may have done that.
