As house prices soar, it’s increasingly difficult for people to enter the Sydney housing market. We discuss the strategies you can adopt to change the situation. Meet us at the bar as we take University of Sydney’s Professor Peter Phibbs off campus, to match our favourite ‘2015 Raise the Bar’ talk with a delicious red at local cellar door, Cake Wines.
