Buying Electronic Items Saving Tip In Sydney

I just learned this tip last month when buying TV in Sydney that we can actually get discount by showing the lowest price that you can find in internet. They will offer you at that lowest price or sometimes lower even though the item is already at offer price. For my case, I was lucky enough the get the lower price than what I proposed. Maybe this is because of the sale person who sold me this TV is also a Malaysian and I guess he earned less commission then? :)

As far as I know, 2 retailers that allows you to do this which are "Bing Lee" and JB Hi-FI. Any others? I bought my TV from "Bing Lee" because I don't find a lot of famous brands sold in JB Hi-FI at that time. Bing Lee has almost everything that I"m looking for.

Bing Lee is only available in NSW and JB Hi-FI is across the Australia I think. If you come across any other retailers that offer this kind of service, please share it with me. This reminds me how I bought my electronic items for my first home in Sungai Petani, Malaysia. :) Have a nice long weekend!

Where to Invest Property in Sydney?

If you ever want to invest or buy a property in Sydney (yeah, I know is expensive), one of the things you can look at is the "potential" of  that area. But how do we know where has the potential?

This website has the answer: A Plan for Growing Sydney

This is especially very useful for those who're not familiar with Sydney. It basically has all the detailed development plans all the way from the main city to suburbs.

The simplest way is the property that you buy must at least has some colors on the map! :) The one with "Priority Precinct" has the highest potential in my opinion. There are totally 10 of them.

In general (base on my observation), the property price by Sydney region in descending order as follow:

  • City center
  • Eastern Suburbs
  • Northern Suburbs (further away from city is cheaper)
  • Inner West 
  • Rest of the Western Areas (further away from city is cheaper)
  • Southern Sydney
  • South-western Sydney

If you look at the map again, you can tell the focus development area is mostly at northern areas. So my recommendation to invest is this area. City center is good to invest too but it maybe too expensive in your budget. Just my 2 cents. :)
