THE REAL ESTATE INSTITUTE Its Origin, History and Objects By W. F. Goyder (Continued from last issue) [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 17 September 1930
THE REAL ESTATE INSTITUTE Its Origin, History and Ubiects By W. F. Go-yder* (Continued from last issue) One of the many benefits derived by mem bers has been the common Auction Room, wherein members may at any time conduct their public sales of property. It also permits and encourages the liolding of associated sales when several members, each without a full catalogue, may combine, sharing the cost of. the Auction Room, etc, etc. ?/ This has proved a boon to many members, and has been largely niT'tWnf] nf Our Institute wes about this time ? materially strengthened by the amalgamation- with .anothei similar body in Sydney,. It 'was gradually realised by both that . while good .work was being done by each, the power and prestige oi Estate Agents would -be enhanced by the. join- ing of forces, their 'objectives in the main being similar. Thanks largely to the -tact and endeavours of our Secretary, the two bodies were brought together,' and a' united front war at oiice presented. Whilje...

SALES TAX Timber, Granite and Marble [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 17 September 1930
SALES TAX Timber, Granite and Marble Timber merchants of Sydney have made representations to the Commissioner of Tax ation' to the* effect that merchants who arc ... saw-millers should -not quote their Certificates of Registration with respect to purchases of timber acquired for re-sale^in the same sizes and general condition as when purchased^,, will cause confusion in some timber businesses, as it is impossible to keep such timber- separate ?from other stock, which will be milled, by t.h.e./; timber , merchant ancl cut into other sizes or ' otherwise ..manufactured before ; being'., sold. The ?'.requirement mentioned' would involve - the timber merchant paying sales tax on his pur, cha:;e price of the timber without being liable for further tax when he sold the goods.

A COTTAGE FOR A 40FT. BLOCK Something Definite in Designs [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 17 September 1930
A COTTAGE FOR A 40FT. BLOCK Something Definite in Designs Many of- the designs which are suggested are practically of little value because mature con sideration shows that the necessary width of the allotment would be, more than is available. A wide frontage has doubtless many advantages for those, who can afford it, as more, land has to be paid for in the first instance, as well, as more fencing and taxes; and upkeep costs also go with it. In this instance, Architect Brogan has given us? a design for an attractive home which can 'be located on - a plot with .a 40-ft. frontage. The perspective view, showing the front gate suggests that the house should be set well back, and the} entrance gate put to .one side of- the frontage rather than in the middle. By this means the formality- of. a'; -straight path is avoided, and a fair sized, area for lawn or trees becomes possible, lhe plan is very ' compact'. The bedroom and' sleep-out verandah face the morning sun, whilst the tradesmen hav...

FEDERAL CONVENTION Will It Proceed? [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 17 September 1930
FEDERAL CONVENTION Will It Proceed? ' On Saturday last the executive of the New castle Association were called together to ex press an opinion as to whether they thought, iii view of the present industrial depression, the Convention should not be abandoned . for the present year. The move was taken following upon a wire received from- Sydney earlier in the da}'. Tt was generally thought that the necessity of a convention of Master Builders was not felt as greatly as it was in times when diffV culties were arising and it wa§'. thought that the ?

This opinion has been .conveyed by letter to the officers of the Federation. : (It was decided .yesterday in Sydney that the Convention should be held.) — ? ? —A. ?
