The Concealed Reality of Short-Stay Rentals 2017-05-01T03:40:48Z the-concealed-reality-of-short-stay-rentals The Australian property market is always a hot topic up for debate in the media, but what is not usually brought to light is the effects of short-stay rentals, specifically Airbnb. Justin Ferguson, Founder and Principal of Ferguson Property Agents, raises the issues that have developed as a result of the burgeoning popularity of new age, short-stay renting services. Justin Ferguson says, “As the sharing economy of Airbnb continues to boom, there are increasing issues that come with the management and legality of these properties. “Currently, local councils and governments are struggling to keep up with the growth of short- stay rentals and are increasingly put under pressure to implement laws to make this sharing economy explosion fair for everyone.“ he continues. Some key factors that are raised when it comes to Airbnb rentals: As per The Tenants Union, sub-letting must be approved in writing, by the property manager or landlord, which is a step that is largely being skipped by the majority of Airbnb rentals – this breaks the terms of the lease and brings issues of insurance coverage and security. If you are a host of property on Airbnb and you have not declared participation in the sharing economy, then you may be subject to hefty fines from not just the council but the Australian Taxation Office and State Revenue Offices. There is currently a severe lack of understanding between local governments in each state. The NSW government is yet to enforce legislation for short-stay rentals with only six councils within Sydney stating they allow short-term rentals with some requiring permission to be given. 60.8%* of properties available in Sydney are now whole residential properties with body corporates and property managers concerned that the vast expansion of properties are being rented out illegally and disturbing traditional rentals. Justin adds, “The main issue I see with Airbnb in the rental market is that it is unregulated and confusing. Increasingly, we are seeing hosts being fined for not declaring their extra income from their Airbnb rental, as it is technically ‘unauthorised’. “On top of that, the housing market is already in very high demand and challenging to break into without properties being acquired for the purpose Airbnb rentals,” he states.

The new Shark Shield Ocean Guardian is based on 20 years of research and utilizes a patented Metamaterial Electromagnetic Transducer, with expectations of repelling sharks within a 100-meter diameter of each unit installed. Lindsay Lyon, Shark Shield CEO says, “The Ocean Guardian has been many years in the making and has come about through a partnership with leading physicists and biologists. We have been able to produce a long-range shark deterrent solution to not only protect beach goers but significantly reduce the environmental impacts caused by using shark nets, drum lines and culling.” The new transducer form is based on technology used to treat patients in the medical field including, oncology, urology and other chronic diseases, with clinical studies demonstrating that the electromagnetic field does not affect the health of humans or ocean life, such as sharks or dolphins. “Sharks have small short range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food. Shark Shield’s electromagnetic field causes unbearable spasms in these sensitive sensors, which turn sharks away, this has been well proven over the past twenty years. The Ocean Guardian leverages this weakness in sharks to not only deter them, but in the long run we hope to teach them to stay away from beaches protected by Shark Shield,” says Lyon. “Classical conditioning, also known as Pavlovianor respondent conditioning, refers to a learning procedure in which a biologically potent stimulus, such as food, is paired with a previously neutral stimulus, such as long term use of Shark Shield Ocean Guardian. With our Ocean Guardian in place, over time sharks will learn to not enter the area and over time will avoid the area due to the unpleasant effects of the electromagnetic field,” adds Lyon. Facts about the Shark Shield Ocean Guardian: The Ocean Guardian transducer utilizes Metamaterials, or sometimes also known as Artificial Electromagnetic Materials, these are new materials, which have anomalous interaction with electromagnetic fields. The engineering of these unique materials results in physical properties not otherwise obtainable with natural materials enabling advanced improvements in the performance of conventional electromagnetic devices. Starting from these concepts and theoretical background of artificial electromagnetic materials and metamaterials, Shark Shield has developed a transducer with significantly improved losses. The creation of this negative index material has resulted in a reduction of transducer losses in producing electromagnetic fields, this innovation has led to the new long range technology in the new Shark Shield Ocean Guardian Shark Shield is seeking a $1M in investment capital to complete the commercialization of the Ocean Guardian, which will also be targeted at the global luxury yacht market, and will be partnering with independent scientists to further validate the company’s own extensive testing. About Shark Shield Shark Shield is the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent. Sharks have small short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for locating food. Shark Shield’s unique three-dimensional electrical waveform turns sharks away by causing unbearable spasms in these sensitive receptors. Used by professionals, such as navies around the world, Shark Shield is a safety device providing peace of mind, while supporting the conservation of sharks. If you’re serious about adventure, you wear a Shark Shield. www.sharkshield.com +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ For further information or to set up and interview with Lindsay Lyon from Shark Shield, please contact: Rachel King @ 360 PR: 0423 833 814 or rachel@360pr.com.au Inner West Trends from Q1 with Cameron Nicholls 2017-04-27T03:07:32Z inner-west-trends-from-q1-with-cameron-nicholls Abbotsford based property expert and founder of Nicholls & Co Estate Agents, Cameron Nicholls, recaps the results from the first quarter of 2017 and shares his predictions for the inner west in the run to the end of financial year.

So, it’s looking up for people looking to enter the property market or downsizing from the family home to apartment living.” Abbotsford Property Statistics for Q1: Total properties sold - 21 Highest sale price - $2,060,000 Median sale price - $1,317,083.33 Percentage of houses vs units: 90.5/9.5 The most recent sales from Nicholls & Co include: 27/16 Orchards Avenue, Breakfast Point - $990,000 101/4 Lewis Ave, Rhodes - $1,530,000 11/33 Peninsula Drive, Breakfast Point - $2,700,000 13/22 Harrow Road, Stanmore - $425,000 368 Georges River Road, Croydon Park - $1,251,000 203/12 Orchards Avenue, Breakfast Point - $990,000 For more information go to www.nichollsandco.com.au.

Every home is different and so are your needs and wants, so it’s important to work out which options are within your budget and what solutions are the smartest for your home,” says Justine. Justine Wilson, Director and Principal Stylist at Vault Interiors shares her top space saving tips: 1. Seasonal Storage – Who doesn’t want a streamline immaculate wardrobe? If yours is bursting at the seams, divide your clothing and accessories into seasons. Just pack away and rotate when required. Space bags, shoe storage boxes and under bed storage boxes are all quick, easy and affordable ways to do this. 2. Multifunctional Furniture – Investing in multifunctional furniture is one of the smartest ways to free up more space. Beds and ottomans with storage are the most common and easiest to find. The IKEA Malm bed offers four drawers of storage and an optional bedhead with shelving for books or accessories. 3. Dual Purpose Spaces – Try converting a spare bedroom into both a study area and guest room by using a sofa bed instead of a traditional bed is one great idea. In the past, finding a sofa bed was limiting, however you no longer have to compromise on style as there are many well designed sofa bed options available. 4. Smart Storage – Joinery is a significant way to change the way you live and has endless possibilities when it comes to storage. Unused areas can be transformed into functional storage spaces with only a small amount of work, e.g. bench seating built under windows or storage under the staircase. Something like these stairs (below) require a little more time and money but we think the result is definitely worthwhile! 5. Think Vertical – Why not use walls to create space? Pegboards are flexible and fun and can be used for both practical and display purposes. Regardless of whether you’re hanging cleaning essentials or an ornament arrangement, you can add colour and life to your walls with only a small amount of effort. 6. Floating Furniture – Floating shelves are a light, open and seamless way to display items. We love to utilise perspex or glass box shelving to create a sophisticated and interesting way to showcase items you may not have room to display. These can be stagnant or can act as changing artworks within your home. For more information, please visit www.vaultinteriors.com.au.

With a new season brings a change in the property market as well as an opportunity to maximise the cooler weather and end of day light savings. In order to make the most of what autumn has to offer, Cameron suggests: Clean your windows: With the recent downfalls Sydney has experienced this is even more important. You’ll be amazed at the difference it will make! Introduce autumn colours and hues: Throws, cushions and even lightweight curtains are a great way to give a home an instant lift and won’t break the budget. Twilight opens: The autumn sky sets the scene for ambient twilight property showings. Turn the end of daylight savings into a positive. Update the exterior: Trim all trees back, clear the leaves out of the gutters and make sure your property looks low maintenance, even if that isn’t the case! Create an outdoor dinning room: Use pavers to create a dedicated outdoor dining space, this time of year it’s slightly cooler and there are less insects to battle. Present an outdoor room to potential buyers before winter hits.

Rivuu enables marketers to reduce the time spent using social media without compromising results. It has already seen over 1000 users sign up since its launch and boasts a client list that includes the likes of Mazda, Ogilvy, Carlsberg, World Vision, Brut, Leo Burnett and jewellery brand Pandora. Launched in January this year, Rivuu was founded by Max Doyle, who is also managing director of Sydney based social media agency, Hello Social,. The technology was launched after Max and his team of 16 were experiencing the bottleneck that many companies struggle with when it comes to getting social media content approved and scheduled. “We realised at Hello Social there were just too many people and tools involved in the content creation, approval and scheduling process. We thought if we could have the whole process in one tool it would significantly improve productivity. So, we created a platform that brings copywriters, graphic designers, community managers and clients/managers all together, making it possible to approve and schedule content with one click,” says Max. Once content is created and approved, Rivuu ensures users schedule it on Facebook, Twitter and even Instagram at the optimum time for maximum reach and engagement. Rivuu analyses the best time of day and the day of the week to find the optimal time to schedule each post. “We wanted to make the functionality of the user experience as intuitive as possible. All content can be viewed on one calendar and sorted by platform, category and schedule stats. The customisable workflow means users can also adjust their content approval process to fit any team structure, adding as many approval rounds as they need.” Social media is becoming an increasingly important tool for marketers to grow their businesses. A significant 63% of marketers use social media for 6 hours or more a week and 39% for 11 or more weekly, according to Social Media Examiner[1]. “We’ve had overwhelmingly positive feedback from our clients who all say they’ve noticed a considerable reduction in the time it takes get content approved and scheduled.” Rivuu is now looking to expand with Max heading to the US this month to meet with investors. “We’ve been in talks with several VCs who’ve expressed interest and have already received a series A funding offer,” says Max. https://rivuu.com/ [1] https://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/SocialMediaMarketingIndustryReport2016.pdf 7 Ways to Create Quirky and Fun Kids’ Rooms 2017-03-20T02:18:17Z 7-ways-to-create-quirky-and-fun-kids-rooms These days there is no end to the cool, quirky and fun style parents can inject into their kids’ rooms. Designer and DIY parents alike are keen to add magic to their little ones’ special spaces and these hot trends are sure to inspire. To stay on trend with the latest kids’ room trends, Justine Wilson, Director and Principal Stylist at Vault Interiors shares her top tips: 1. Neon Colour Pops – Neon is back! We love the fun way in which neon accents can add zing to any kids’ space. But beware! Use in moderation to avoid overpowering the room. 2. Shared Spaces – Space is at a premium these days and whether you have decided your little ones should share for that reason, or merely for the fun that sharing with your sibling can offer, shared spaces don’t have to be rigid in design. 3. Geometric Patterns – The geometric trend isn’t going anywhere! We love how these bold graphic prints and patterns are becoming a classic look but also add a playful but ordered style to the space. They can easily be adapted to any gender and also suit-shared spaces. Removable wallpaper is a great way to add some geometrics! 4. Monochrome – Monochrome is the new neutral! This palette is cool and edgy while also remaining classic in style. Using bold prints, beloved icons, like our friend Miffy or Nordic/wilderness influences, make this trend perfect for nurseries to teen rooms. 5. Outside In – The spirit of adventure is strong for little people, so it is only natural they love spaces that reflect this. The use of versatile wallpapers makes it easy to create a magical space. Bold wallpapers can be limited to one wall so it doesn’t overwhelm the room. 6. Playhouse Beds – Forget dollhouses! We love playhouses and cubby beds almost as much as kids do! No matter if it’s for sleeping or as a reading nook, playhouse beds are fun for any child. We love the DIY version of this teepee bed by blogger and mummy Sarah of Hello Bowsers. 7. Designer Furniture – When it comes to selecting furniture for any part of your home, well designed and functional is a must, so buying for your child’s room is no exception. For a long time kids’ bedroom furniture was limited to one or the other. Pioneers like Lilly and Lolly changed that and Incy Interiors has both beautiful and long-lasting pieces.

Cameron Nicholls, Founder and Principal of Nicholls & Co Estate Agents provides his tips to match-make the right property to the stylist. Engage more than one – It’s better to have at least two or more who have different styles and looks. Let them work their magic – You don’t need to be there, they are the experts so let them do what they do best. Remember you can use existing items – Stylists can work with existing furniture and simply add some sparkle, colour and freshen up. Make sure there is and extension option – Just incase the auction or campaign doesn’t run to plan you need a buffer. Have options – Budget and premium stylists and or packages. “You wouldn’t wear Dior to the rugby so make sure you find the appropriate match when it comes to presenting a property,” says Nicholls. www.nichollsandco.com.au
