Bondi, an Aboriginal word which means water breaking over rocks, or noise of water breaking over rocks, is a popular tourist destination for beachgoers, and a fantastic place to live because of the fabulous views, the relaxed local culture, and the lively nightlife scene. There aren’t many other places in Australia where you can hit the surf straight after a day at the office and then enjoy a fun night out afterwards.
There are plenty of lifestyle varieties when it comes to real estate in Bondi, with every second house a family home with children, and modern apartment blocks blending in with historical treasures. New apartment buildings are also an increasingly regular site on the skyline of Bondi.
So, whether you are young professional needing a cosy apartment close to work, or a family looking for an area that has everything, Bondi should feature at the top of your shortlist as one of the best addresses around Sydney.
Connecting with Bondi local tradies
When you finally make a move to Bondi, you will want to be connecting with many of the trades and businesses local to your new address. Every established home needs the occasional touch-up, modification, or repair. Even new homes can be prone to the rare plumbing emergency, and there are always creative ways to add value to any property.
A successful Bondi home renovation begins with knowing what professional services and tradies you need. Dealing with a new business is always a little nerve-wracking because you never know what you are going to get as far service and reliability are concerned, but there is a way you can avoid the hassle of dealing with people you don’t know, especially in an emergency. The idea is to get to know your local businesses as soon as you move into an area, and well before you desperately need them.
Once it comes time to put the business to work, you will have already established a relationship with them and will have a good idea of what to expect. Whether you are looking a tradesperson, builders to do the renovations, or to find local painters to spruce up the walls, you are most likely going to head online to do your search for a business.
Online searching is the most efficient way to go when looking for a local business, but even here there are shortcuts you can use which will always get you better results.
For instance, a trade concierge site goes a little further than the average trades directory when you are looking for builders, painters, or trades. Most directories will list any business which fronts up with the monthly fee, but a trade concierge site like Tradebusters.com.au won’t let just any business on their website.
