    I know I know, most prefer anecdotes.I'm terribly sorry to be forever derailing threads with facts. :p

    @JDP1 should know better than anyone, his job involves offshoring hundreds of other jobs. Bellhops and Barista's, the brave new economy for the SE.

    A cafe with single origin and a Westfield is gentrification right?..Brisbane to the moon! :D

    haha..not entirely..that was more of a once off..in any case, in a lot of cases its not wrong- think of it as making room for high value jobs. The low value jobs can be done cheaper and more efficiently somewhere else. Just the forces of globalisation. Anyone who fights that might as well invest in a mining town because thats wxactly what will happen :)

    Could also be due to the unseasonally hot weather:

    So the cranes have finally got to what resembles the edges of the swamp land in an obvious effort to trap the unsophisticated (and less paranoid) investors.

    Datto, are you calling the top of the market?

    I think the market peaked about 12 months ago in Mt Druitt.

    Do people actually invest outside this area? Sash?
