生活解鎖 – 住所編

個人黎講其實覺得香港人好叻, 因為近期認識會移民到澳洲既朋友當中, 有人只是去過澳洲旅行, 都有朋友從未踏足澳洲, 但都因為種種唔同原因而選擇離開香港, 一個我地呢個generation土生土長既地方. 作出呢個選擇真係好有勇氣, 所以大家真係要為自己applause一下. 當然旅行與真.生活是兩件好唔同既事, 所以我都簡單講講住所編, 等大家有少少心理上既預備.
係澳洲有下面呢幾個類別既accommodations,而每一個類別我都會簡單講講方便大家了解:-
Apartment/Unit
Townhouse
Villa
Semi-detach
House
*Retirement Unit/townhouse/house

Apartment/Unit


呢個係我地香港人最熟悉既生活環境, 你比錢租/買既地方係成座建築物既一個portion, 當中有公家地方好似樓梯/電梯及走廊. 有公家地方自然會有management fee, 係澳洲屋苑estate management會由body corporate 去run, 而一般我地會叫呢個收費做strata. 好多時係domain.com或realestate.com.au上個ads係唔會display strata幾錢既, 而呢類唔show strata既盤都99.999%收得貴 (i.e. $1,200+/pq), 而一般比較合理既strata我覺得會係約$800/pq.

Apartment/Unit主要係兩大城市比較多及接受, 分別係Sydney及Melbourne. 就好似我大學時就住係6 Yorston Crt, Elsterwick咁, 座building有十幾個unit, 又有under cover carpark, 我當時住下層有埋小小backyard.
By the way, 當年Elsterwick係Victoria幾好住, 因為無乜唐人, 成個suburb只有十幾戶亞洲人. 而且又有火車及叮叮, 都好方便.

Townhouse

Townhouse好多人叫佢地個排屋, 我都係叫返佢做townhouse會直接D, Townhouse一般會有兩層, 下層主要係living room, dining room 及 kitchen, 前面有front garden, 後有backyard. 至於上層都會係bedroom. laundry 多數會係出backyard果道門左近. 我high school時住過Box Hill, 3座townhouse獨立運作, 但門牌號碼會有ABCD或Unit 1/2/3/4果D分別.

今時今日既townhouse好多時都係developer搵一大塊地起好多座townhouse, 而呢類townhouse都會有少量共用facility(i.e.泳池), 雖然都要比strata, 但因為無佐lift所以strata一定會平唔少.

Town house既業主一般係無地皮持有權, 就好似apartment/unit一樣, 無記錯既話業權係由developer定body corporate持有

Villa

Villa有D似Townhouse但只會係單層既建築群, 都係developer用一大塊地起好多座Villa, 所以空間感會比較大, 因為living room, dining room, kitchen同bedroom都係同一地平線上. 而Villa好多時都會有埋garage再加前面空車.

Villa既業主一樣都係無地皮持有權, 就好似apartment/unit一樣, 無記錯既話業權係由developer定body corporate持有.

Semi-detach

Semi-detach係house與townhouse既合體, Semi-detach主要會係一塊地皮上有一大座construction, 而再分別為左右兩邊, 而業主同時係土地持有人, 一舨會係50/50 split. 每位業主同時持有地皮. 日後resell value相對比較高.

House

大家去到外地, 好自然想擁有一間dream house. 我自己就真心有D保留. 當然有一間house固然係一件好事但同樣會帶黎唔少問題及side jobs. 就好似我當初去Melbourne住係Doncaster舅父屋企時, 雖然有一間唔細既屋, 但因為係一屋有前有後既屋, 所以front garden及backyard要不時保持neat & tidy, otherwise council 會黎比說話你聽, 仲會issue tickets.

正正因為成塊地都係業主持有, 你當然有權改建你間屋啦, 就好似加建Nanny house會係一件幾常見既事, 但當中一定要問清楚你個council及搵合資格人士去跟進. 今時今日係大城市已經好難買到house了, 除非你唔介意住遠少少啦.

Retirement Unit/townhouse/house

呢個只係一個55歲以上富貴租住安排, 唔好掂!!! 講完

雜費

其實係澳洲住, 除佐間屋(apartment/townhouse/villa/semi-detach/house)外, 仲會有好幾種每季都要交既雜費:-
Council rate
water rate
Strata
