24 NT NEWS. Real Estate Liftout Saturday, November 6, 2010. www.ntnews.com.au P U B : N T N E W S D A T E : 6 -N O V -2 0 1 0 P A G E : 1 2 4 C O L O R : C M Y K Dont let the skeeters put you off By Nigel Adlam MIDGES and mosquitoeshave failed to deter buyers from snapping up properties in the upmarket Darwin estate of Bayview, according to an expert. Chris Winter of valuer Herron Todd White said parts of the new suburb were badly affected'' by insects. He said at times - such as full moon and high tides -outside parts of homes were unusable''. Mr Winter said some tenants had broken their leases and owners had moved. But he said this had not dampened the enthusiasm for Bayview. This is more likely due to the fact that it is difficult to quantify the extent that the insects may affect a particular house or area. Also, some people are more tolerant than others, not viewing it as a significant problem.'' Mr Winter said the estate was well regarded and much sought after, partly because it was on the waterfront and close to the city centre. In a discussion on investment properties in the latest edition of the Herron Todd White news bulletin, he said Bayview was not the only place affected by midges and mosquitoes. Anything near or around major water sources can be a problem and the impact can be erratic, affecting one small area worse than others, with seemingly little explanation.'' Mr Winter said the back of Leanyer also had an insect problem. Here there is a buffer zone of larger allotments between the scrub and the higher density residential suburb, but in periods of high insect activity this can still reduce the enjoyment of external spaces.'' Mr Winter said the risk of flooding also had to be taken into account when buying a rental property. He said there was a high demand for rentals in Katherine but the town had been flooded several times in the past two decades, which could reduce property prices but end in your house being waterlogged. real value properties nt real value real service real results www.rvpnt.com to see all our properties pa lm er st on da rw in ru ra l 470 Hicks Rd, Howard Springs (Office visits by Appt) licensed real estate ABN 58002456318 re 1 9 0 6 7 9 DRIVER $438,000 IMMACULATE 3 Beds,1 Bath+ shed 2 big verandahs, spa Covered secure parking Landscaped & reticulated Move in now or keep tenant 9 Fletcher Cres Open Sun 12:15 12:45 Julio Leschi 0404 074 311 ROSEBERY $619,000 BIG 4 Beds,2 Bath+ shed DBL LUG + Int access Covered patio+big IG Pool Landscaped & reticulated 3yrs new, 3 living areas 16 Belyuen Rd By Appointment Julio Leschi 0404 074 311 VIRGINIA $875,000 5Bed, 2 bath, 3 living Renovate &very nice New tropical pool & setting Industrial shed + more 5 acrs, fenced, retic, t/water Call for details By appointment Julio Leschi 0404 074 311 MOULDEN $439,950 ELEVATED 3X1+ Work shop + spa Loads of secure parking 823m2 fully fenced Immac Potential to enclose d/stairs Quiet cul-de-sac, backs park 3 Staghorn Ct Open Sun 11:30 12:00 Julio Leschi 0404 074 311 HOWARD SPRINGS $800,000 REDUCED 5X4 home, rented $850p/w 480m2 House, 180m2 Shed Wrap round verandahs Near new IG pool, Lawn+bush Fenced, 5 acres, town water 156 Bronzewing AV By appointment Julio Leschi 0404 074 311 LAKE BENNETT 1) 1x1 334m2 sth facing Water front $349K 2) 2x2+ 280m2 Db car port Imac + pontoon $499K 3) 3x2++ 660m2 sth facing Wtr frnt AMAZING $899K Chinner Rd Call for details Julio Leschi 0404 074 311 HUMPTY DOO RIGHT PRICE RURAL LIFE $635,000 Elevated 3x1+ BIG Pool 2 living, 2 decks, new kitchen Cooling louver windows Potential to enclose d/stairs Bore, landscaped+ bush 5 acres fully fenced 42 Bundey Rd By Appointment Julio Leschi 0404 074 311 DARWIN CITY HARBOR RETREAT $1.15M Pent house style living Resort style amenities Un-obstructed harbor views 3 bed, 2bth, 2 car, security 4 living areas incl BIG Balcony 5 Star finishes throughout 319/130 Esplanade By Appointment Julio Leschi 0404 074 311 Ph: 8983 1888 0404 074 311 HUMPTY DOO STYLISH, NEW, CHEAPEST $459,000 New 2x1 coded home landscape + bush Huge carport & storage 2 street accesses, private Full fence,t/water, 5ares Near bus,shops,shools 155 Strangways Rd Open Sun 1:15 1:45 Julio Leschi 0404 074 311 REDUCED NEW NEW NEW Go Local Go Advantage Parap Village 8923 9444 Licensed Real Estate Agents www.advantagent.com.au KARAMA 12 Mahogany Crs ONE FOR THE HANDYMAN OR ASTUTE INVESTOR Solid ground level house Storeroom plus garden shed Renovated kitchen Fully Fenced Fully Air Conditioned Close to Schools & shops Paved undercover patio Great investment or first home Large garden for the green thumb A little TLC but will pay off $459,000 NEG SAT 2:00 2:45 KIM FARRAR 0409 090 591 GAVAN KEANE 0431 550 710 3 1 2 RAPID CREEK 6 Kelly Plc CLASSIC RAPID CREEK Classic elevated character home Breezy verandah Fantastic condition throughout 3 generous bedrooms Large 904m2 block Perfect for a family Rambling tropical garden Walk to beach, cafes, markets Prime central location Great value , great suburb $598,000 SAT 1:15 - 2:00 GAVAN KEANE 0431 090 591 3 1 4 LARRAKEYAH 8/6 Warrego Ct CENTRAL LIFE STYLE & LOCATION ! 2 bed + 3rd bed or study, 2 bath Fully air-con & tiled Study or bed 3, your choice Large luxury complex pool Modern well equipt kitchen 2 secure car parks Dishwasher, dryer, int laundry Central to CBD & Cullen Bay Quality appliances throughout Live-in or invest $599,000 SAT 2:15 3:00 ANDY HINKS 0439 889 752 SOFIA DILSHAD 0405 515 909 2+ 2 2 4 2 2 MALAK 8 Paqualin Rd POPULAR ELEVATED HC25 Elevated Home Freshly Repainted Interior Make Your Own Mark Fully Fenced Pool & Spa Close to Schools & Shops $540,000 NEG SAT 12:30 - 1:30 DON PARMENTER 0414 455 021 NORTHLAKES 11 Carnoustie Cct SPOIL YOUR FAMILY Lifestyle Plus Spacious and Comfortable Pool ,Spa , Overlooks Course Perfect Family Home Close to Shops ,Clubhouse $885,000 NEG SAT 1:45 2:45 DON PARMENTER 0414 455 021 3 1 2 1 2 SALES STAFF EXPERIENCED SALES STAFF TO JOIN DYNAMIC TEAM Top Commissions Offered No Franchise Fees Call Don Parmenter 0414 455 021 WAGAIT BEACH 41 Sachse St Cheapest block with power Start with the fishing shack Has power connected Beautiful bush block 4070m2 Has stumped container 20 Min from Darwin by Ferry $210,000 BY APPOINTMENT KIM FARRAR 0409 090 591 MOULDEN 4/16 McGuire Cct FIRST HOME OWNER ALERT Tidy ,bullet proof unit Very good rental returns Low Body Corporate Excellent complex Invest or live in $310,000 SUNDAY 12:30 1:15 KIM FARRAR 0409 090 591 GAVAN KEANE 0431 550 710 2 1 1 COCONUT GROVE 1/11 Cartwright Ct LIVE in or INVEST !
