In case you are not aware, today I found some free property guides from this web site on domain.com.au. There are property guides for Sydney and Melbourne for both 2006 and 2007. There's also a "Essential Guide to Buying and Selling Property".
This is the figure for our suburb - Epping.
The "Essential Guide to Buying and Selling Property" includes some check lists for buyers, sellers which you might find handy.
