    I said that the guy I know has 2 years work. Cannot suggest what others are doing but typically, builders are busy. Here is another example mate. A friend is a ski instructor. 2 other instructors she is friends with (all locals) are builders - they wont be at the resort this season as they cannot afford the time away from building. As for trades moving here, supply and demand etc, etc, lets see how that pans out ... I don't know that living in a cold climate is for everyone. And don't have any idea how long this mini boom will last. Summer seems to be driving the market as much as anything....

    I know that property - a few minutes from my place. Not a bad spot about 5 mins from Jindy.

    Wouldn't be the first time around Tumut...

    The caves were closed from 1966-1968 while prisoners from Cooma Gaol worked on upgrading the facilities. All the caves which were open to the public were rewired and the old shed at the Thermal Pool was replaced.​

    The rebuilding of Tathra will also impact of the amount of builders in the area.

    Off grid, 30k for power, 6k for 60000l tanks, 15k for septic and grey water system
    Nominally 50k but you can spend more or less dependent on what you build.

    I recently received a "purchaser interest" for the block we bought 18 months ago. +70k

    Also had a good chat with a Sydney family driving a lovely Euro urban SUV on our little access dirt road "looking to buy". Very nice people, not out of place in 5 star Leichhardt, car full of preteens and teens with a swag of Mountain bikes hanging off, he even gave me his card.

    Space to play is selling.

    WOW!...shit is getting serious. From Sydney local conversations, everybody wants to bolt due to too much immigration, ruining what was once a pretty good bloody lifestyle that has now gone to total shite!

    Nah, Sydney is Sydney. This family was very Sydney, Italian urbane Sydney.

    Jindy has a private school, business can be run Sydney via Jindy, kids can have space, sport and animals. They don't want beach with surf.

    Jindy has trades working in Sydney all week and back on the weekend. FIFO but not.

    Times are now, motion is fluid.

    Jindy has .... arrived

    Yes, great spot. I would like something like that - without the house on it. Way too big for my needs.

    If it was free, I'm sure you'd compromise though.

    I don't think the house itself is ugly, just the way ots been decorated - the curtains etc are straight out of the 40s

    No!
    And it’s pretty far up to be even Snowy Plains.
    It’s past the old gate in the cutting. Great spot though.

    Guessing you get the key to Happy Jacks with that purchase. Just a shame its a bit far around to Jindy and the main resort areas. Still i was kicking myself for missing that now KNP chunk near Cessjacks a few years back. They don't come up very often.

    The gate is always locked.
    It’d be hard to drive up after a big fall.

    The east side of Bald Hill has fun lines.
    It’s a nice skin up.

    Oh goodie goodie and investment site where “trusted advisors” make a lot of money referring you to other “trusted advisors” and make sure you buy a developers left over worthless crap. Honestly the sooner the government step in and ban these schemes the better.

    FWIW @StevenMorrison if these sites are so good at what you suggest, they don’t need to come in here and spruce, business would simply grow by referral!

    So we are property owners in Jindy, our property is split so we live in one part and rent the other out. It would be my experience that Fri -> Sun rentals are the most lucrative with the least wear and tear on the home.
    People arrive late Fri, sleep, get up early (they now have to) Ski, come back to the unit (or not) Eat out, go back, sleep, Check out early Sun Am.

    They really don't use much in the property, as opposed to Week or Season rentals. When you look around the season rentals, especially for staff, you risk having, way more people than the property is licensed for, abandoned cars on your property, mates sleeping in vehicles on your property, but using hot water / bathroom / kitchen amenities.

    I don't really know what the answer is, but for younger seasonal staff (with perhaps no history) I would think very basic but warm rooms, would be the answer, but transport? I remember when I worked at Thredbo, some staff used to travel in a troop carrier, owned by Thredbo? I'm a but surprised Perisher and Thredbo don't run a bus or 2 down to Jindy in the mornings for staff.

    Commercial vehicles carrying passengers probably need to pay a per person fee ($8? $12?) which makes it an unattractive thing from an employee viewpoint.

    This is stupid and the biggest impediment to there being busses operating from Jindabyne and Thredbo and Perisher.

    So approx $250k per 3 bed townhouse to build.

    So I have been out of the loop on things down here for the last few years. Recently I visited someone in East Jindy. there are 50 dual occupancy blocks in there. Plus the 10 blocks in the gated estate that are not on the sewage. Unless there is some community infrastructure this is going to be a large community with no resources. What I don't understand is how this happens without the developer providing some resources. Does anyone know anything about it?

    Someone mentioned something about someone skipping owing lots of people money over some of this. Does anyone know anything about it? Just interested to find out the story because none of it sits right and I just wonder how much is just ignorance about what has actually happened.

    The other thing about this is, the current entry to East Jindy is not safe and hardly copes with existing traffic. Once there is more traffic, how long before a serious accident. Might have to look up what happened during the season when the road was closed.

    And the thing that currently has people upset is the rubbish that has been abandoned by the builders and developers. Will be having a look on Monday to see how bad it is or if it is just someone making a mountain out of a molehill.

    The east Jindy thing is a bit wierd to me, sort of. By the lake but a bit isolated. Why can't regular Jindy be expanded?

    On the $250k per lot, I feel this is commercial pricing and not to be expected for a one off build.


    Doesn’t sound right at all, I’m assuming based on location they are lake side or at least any water flows pretty directly into the lake, this would suggest individual septic systems would be problematic. Doesn’t sound logical to be approved this way, I have clients in NSW that had to pay thousands to get reports on the effect of the smell let alone run off.

    not saying your info is wrong just that if correct someone needs to answer

    So it is not just me it sounds wrong to. Mmmm I might need to investigate exactly what the situation is and see if my source has the facts right.

    What I was told is all a bit jumbled by someone emotionally involved so I am reluctant to ask to many questions. But hopefully I can find some information so they get to feel less bothered by what has happened.

    I’ve financed a few subdivisions, even in small towns and only one without services that was a rural development. As I said the proximity to the lake alone and contamination issues would normally see the reverse in terms of extra requirements

    Regular Jindy is being expanded. To the south, that is the plan.

    Thanks. This is one part of the new developments there. But there is also a gated eztate with 10 blocks just down from the end of that. They are on the edge if the lake and to low to be put on the sewage. Ir so I have been told.

    I am a bit surprised by the population of East Jindy. That said 4400. But there are no services at all.

    Are you sure there are no services, sewer is usually pumped from a central collection point to the overall system.

    Building is currently powering along at Kunama, Tyrolia and East Jindy.
