In this edition, we spoke to 26-yearold Josh Manion, who is calling on big business to do more to help first home buyers enter the market.

What Josh said was a great initiative, suggesting more companies should go the extra mile to ease the pressure on buying new.
With Melbourne Cup on Tuesday, November 6, we spoke to a long-time Ascot resident about his decision to buy into one of the racecourse suburb’s newest apartment communities.
