January 15th, 2011 Price dip opens doors for first-home buyers

Nishant and Anu Singla bought their first home in Pooraka four months ago. “It’s affordable, fairly new and a great neighbourhood,” Mr Singla said. “There is a shopping centre and child care centre nearby. . . it’s just really convenient.”

First home buyers Nishant and Anu Singla.

First-home buyers Nishant Singla and his wife Anu (pictured) chose an affordable area close to amenities and relatives.

Singla, 30, says the affordability sped up the deposit-saving process and government homebuyer grants were also helpful.

"We had a deposit but without the help of the grant we wouldn't have been able to meet the loan requirements," he says.

What a disgrace , nearly a year after buying these "first home buyers" get trotted out for the third time !

My email below, explaining it all

_______________________________

Hello Media Watch,

I have identified 3 news articles, over a period of at least 8 months, that use the same first home buyer couple as the focus of a property-spruik.

Article 1 of 3 indicates that the couple purchased the property in about September 2010 (it references that they purchased 4 months prior, in the Adelaide suburb of Pooraka). They are then used in articles in February and August of this year. Surely publishing an article in August 2011 about a first home buyer couple from September 2010 is poor reporting?

Article 1: (dated Jan 2011)
http://www.news.com.au/price-dip-open-doors-for-first-home-buyers/story-e6frefgc-1225988047350?from=public_rss

Article 2: (dated Feb 2011)
http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/bank-war-a-boon-for-home-buyers/story-e6frea6u-1226008427544

Article 3: (dated August 2011)
http://www.heraldsun.com.au/ipad/get-your-foot-in-the-property-door/story-fn6cc3af-1226122890665

Hope this can find its way into an episode of your show.

Thanks
Dave

Ahhh here you can see the wonderful effects of photoshop. The couple have been photo'd in a studio and superimposed over the house. The lighting is all wrong. I'm guessing they aren't even "real" in so far as they could be ficticious names. Just a composite of the demographic they want to target - young aspirational migrant couple.

Australian Property Forum is an economics and finance forum dedicated to discussion of Australian and global real estate markets and macroeconomics, including house prices, housing affordability, and the likelihood of a property crash. Is there an Australian housing bubble? Will house prices crash, boom or stagnate? Is the Australian property market a pyramid scheme or Ponzi scheme? Can house prices really rise forever? These are the questions we address on Australian Property Forum, the premier real estate site for property bears, bulls, investors, and speculators. Members may also discuss matters related to finance, modern monetary theory (MMT), debt deflation, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin Ethereum and Ripple, property investing, landlords, tenants, debt consolidation, reverse home equity loans, the housing shortage, negative gearing, capital gains tax, land tax and macro prudential regulation.

Forum Rules: The main forum may be used to discuss property, politics, economics and finance, precious metals, crypto currency, debt management, generational divides, climate change, sustainability, alternative energy, environmental topics, human rights or social justice issues, and other topics on a case by case basis.
