Discover Redox Molecules

A radical change in managing health, anti-aging and athletic ability.

The primary building block of all people, animal and plants, is cells. Cells have to produce their own energy in the little factories called mitochondria.

1989 Nobel Prize discovery of redox signalling molecules which produce this energy in the mitochondria, activate antioxidants and combat cellular stress, including fighting off bacteria and viruses.

2007 Redox signalling molecules bottled and patented. 100% non-toxic, safe and native to the body. Made as it is made in the cells, from salt water, and put through an extensive 3-day process to stabilise the redox molecules. This stabilisation had previously been thought impossible.

Test results on subjects showed such incredible changes in energy and wellness that a pharmaceutical giant offered to buy the patents for nearly a billion dollars. The caveat: those who had been using the product in testing must stop. The offer was declined and the biotech executives decided to make the product available directly to the public and ASEA began.

“My painful back which was diagnosed as incurable, has not given me trouble since I took the fluid for 3 weeks.” – Annie, Perth

I cannot remember a time when Dad did not have digestive problems. Being a naturopath he knows a lot but it was only when he started ASEA that his problems subsided significantly. A year later he is the healthiest I have ever seen him. I am so happy.” – Tash, Melbourne

My S.I.N.ers Group, my friends, my family

The Sunset International Neighbours (S.I.N.ers) is a Group of ladies that was founded in 1990. We formed this group to solidify and help foster friendships among our members, some of whom have been coming now for 27 years.

We meet once a month at someone’s house for lunch, and every month it rotates to a new home. We all bring a plate of food to share, and sometimes a friend to add to the group. Over the years we have also watched children and grandchildren grow through their various visits, such a joy.

We don’t sell Avon, Tupperware, or any other product, except sometimes Real Estate (hehehe). We sit, eat, talk, exchange views, and make friends.

We had our Christmas party this last Monday. (Out meetings are always in a Monday, it had become tradition).

Some of us are very talented in the kitchen. I’ll let you decide if I am included in that group (hint hint I don’t cook).

Last Monday we had the pleasure of welcoming one of the S.I.N.ers’ youngest visitors, only a few weeks old, granddaughter to this month’s host. And of meeting two boys, now 17 and 15 year olds, that we have been in contact with since they were born.

We also had another member bring her tweenage granddaughter, who usually joins us around Christmas time and of course my daughter with her son, my adorable grandson.

These meetings are always a pleasure to attend, we catch up with one another, share good news and bad, and strengthen our friendships again, one bite at a time.

I hope you all find time this December to meet with your friends and loved ones, to talk over delicious food, and maintain those connections which are important to you.

Merry Christmas,

Alycee

The worst is likely over for the Perth property market with stable conditions recorded in September quarter

The Perth property market continues to stabilise with preliminary September quarter data revealing steady or improved levels across most key market indicators.

REIWA President Hayden Groves said conditions in the September quarter had mirrored those experienced in the June quarter, which indicated the Perth property market may have finally found its floor.

“We’ve observed six months of stable conditions, with both the June and September quarters posting consistent results. Historically, before a market improves there is a sustained period of level stock, sales activity and house prices, which is what we appear to be witnessing at the moment,” Mr Groves said.

Median house and unit price
Perth’s preliminary median house price for the September quarter came in at $499,000.

“Once all sales have settled, we expect the revised September quarter median to lift to around $515,000, an increase on the June quarter’s $510,000 median,” Mr Groves said.

REIWA analysis shows Perth’s median house price only experienced a marginal one per cent decline when compared to the same time last year.

“Comparatively, between the September quarters in 2015 and 2016, Perth’s quarterly median house price declined by 2.3 per cent. These longer term trends are a good indicator as to the positive direction the market is headed, as the rate of decline is slower than it was two years ago,” Mr Groves said.

Perth’s preliminary median unit price is $395,000 for the three months to September. reiwa.com data projects this figure will lift to $407,000 once all sales have settled, putting it on par with the June quarter median.

“It bodes well for the market that Perth’s house and unit prices are exhibiting signs of recovery simultaneously,” Mr Groves said.

Sales activity
There were 6,960 property sales in Western Australia in the September quarter.

Mr Groves said this preliminary figure was expected to lift to around 8,000 once all sales had settled.

“In the Perth metro region, property sales increased in the September quarter. Once all transactions have settled, we expect sales to exceed 6000, up from 5,730 in June quarter.

“REIWA analysis shows despite softer market conditions, this quarter’s projected sales figure is not far off the 10 year quarterly average of 6,780. Given the challenging economic factors facing the state, it’s a testament to the strength of our local market that it has held up relatively well through the downturn,” Mr Groves said.

Listings for sale
Stock levels in Perth continue to decline, falling from 14,071 at the end of June 2017 to 13,043 at the end of September.

Mr Groves said after a prolonged period of rising listings across the metro area, it was pleasing to see substantial declines occurring.

“The September quarter listing figure is 7.3 per cent lower than the figure recorded at the end of June and 7.9 per cent lower than the figure recorded at the end of September 2016.

“With sales activity trending up and listing levels declining, this has improved net demand across the metro area and contributed to the healthy sales figures we’ve seen this quarter,” Mr Groves said.

 

Average selling days and discounting

It took on average 70 days to sell a house in Perth in the September quarter.

“This quarter’s average selling day figure is two days slower than it was in the June quarter, but two days faster than it was in the September quarter 2016,” Mr Groves said.

The proportion of vendors required to discount their asking price improved to 53.4 per cent in the September quarter. This is 1.8 per cent less than the June quarter and 4.5 per cent less than the same time last year.

“It’s pleasing to see fewer sellers needing to reduce their asking price. It means they are listening to the advice of their REIWA agents and pricing their homes competitively from the start, negating the need to discount their original asking price,” Mr Groves said.

Massive family home with indoor pool

Thursday 2nd of November Open from 6:30 to 7pm

Saturday November 4th Open from 1pm to 1:30

Sunday from 1pm to 1:30

Come along to view this massive home!

This home offers so many benefits that I asked the seller to write a story of their abode. And here it is…..

The story of our house began in 1999 when solar architects were engaged to design a solar passive house on a beautiful block of land.

Our house was then built by Dale Alcock and completed in 2000. In case you’re not familiar with it, in passive solar building design, windows, walls, and floors are made to collect, store, and distribute solar energy in the form of heat in the winter and reject solar heat in the summer.

This is called passive solar design because it does not involve the use of mechanical and electrical devices, unlike active solar heating systems. It’s also within walking distance of Sorrento Primary School, Duncraig High School, Sacred Heart College, Robin Reserve and Sorrento Beach. It’s the perfect design in the perfect location!

The house follows the slope of the land with three large double bedrooms at one end of the house, open plan living in the middle, a study/bedroom next to the large main bedroom towards the front of the house as well as an activity or second TV room for the kids.

At the very front of the house is a double garage so the house looks deceptively small from the road but everyone is surprised at the size when they come inside.

The main hallway is 1.5m wide so there is no struggle getting through the house no matter how much shopping you are carrying!

Although at the time many features of our house were considered a bit “greenie”, today we see the benefits. We use Council approved grey water to water the lawn, veggie patch and gardens, and there are five rainwater tanks on the fence line of one boundary which are filled by the runoff from the expansive roof.

Rainwater is then used in the laundry for the washing machine, topping up the under cover pool and extra water on the garden. We do not have air conditioning as we don’t need it but use “The Doctor” sea breeze to cool the house and ceiling fans to move it around.

With extra insulation in all the western facing walls, the house does take a long time to get warm.

There are also 5kW of solar panels on the roof which helps to run the heat pump for the pool so we can swim all year round.

Our undercover entertainment area is big enough for a party or just as your own oasis. There is also a fitted rangehood within the entertainment area and plumbed gas connection, so rain never ruins a BBQ.

And like all good homes, there is wifi throughout with access points in all the rooms and boosters built in to make sure everyone gets the internet.

If you are looking for a big space but still a home and not a house, this may be the home you are looking for.

Features:

  • High Ceilings
  • Fresly painted
  • Ceiling fans
  • Indoor pool
  • Split level home
  • 941m2 block

Good opportunity for buyers near Perth’s inner city

Good opportunity for buyers near Perth’s inner city NEW
09 September 2017
Author: REIWA President Hayden Groves

If you were to ask people in Sydney or Melbourne whether it was possible to secure a house – not just an apartment, but a house – within 10 kilometres of the CBD for under $500,000, you’d likely be met with mirth.

Purchasing any property in Sydney or Melbourne for under $500,000 is challenging, let alone finding a property for that price just a few kilometres away from the city. It’s this point of difference that keeps the dream of home ownership alive for many more people in Western Australia than it does in other parts of the country.

For instance, unlike the major markets on the east coast, you don’t need to move miles away from the city to be able to get onto the property ladder. There are numerous suburbs within 10 kilometres of the city that offer fantastic value to savvy buyers and investors.

Perth’s 10 cheapest suburbs within 10 kilometres of the CBD
A recent report by reiwa.com revealed Perth’s 10 cheapest suburbs within 10 kilometres of the city. Nollamara, located 10 kilometres north of the CBD, took out first spot with a median house price of $410,000 for the year to June 2017. This is extraordinarily good value, and doesn’t even factor the suburb’s lower quartile price, which sits at $375,000.

Other suburbs to make the list were Cloverdale, Belmont, Redcliffe, Bentley, Embleton, Osborne Park, Kewdale, Morley and Carlisle. And of these 10 suburbs, seven were located east of the city.

The eastern corridor of Perth’s inner city is a growing area that presents particularly good value. With the Perth Stadium and surrounding infrastructure nearing completion, the opportunity is certainly there for savvy buyers and investors to purchase in a fast growing area at a relatively affordable price.

Get in quick!
We are very lucky here in Perth that there are still great bargains to be had in and around the CBD, but as WA’s population inevitably grows, it is unlikely inner city living will remain this attainable. By 2050, the state’s population is expected to have almost doubled, and as we’ve seen in most major cities around the world, as population density increases so too does the cost of real estate.

The Perth property market currently favours buyers, but property markets are cyclical and conditions will change. With signs emerging that we may have finally found, or be close to finding, the ‘floor’ of our local housing market, I would advise buyers to act sooner rather than later if you’re wanting to secure an affordable house close to the city.

Speak to a local REIWA agent in your area to discuss the options available to you.

I have the most fun with my friends the SINers (Sunset International Neighbours)

We have now spent 26 years commemmorating our friendships.
We have lunch once a month in one of our houses.
Everybody brings a dish to share. Food is so great for socialisation, don’t you think?
This month it was my turn to host everyone at my home.
This group is so special and I consider my friends my family here in Australia.

Such a fantastic spread and I am just so lucky that I have the leftovers and don’t need to make dinner. 19 guests today, that makes for a lot of variety.
From various salads, quiches, cauliflower bake and chicken wings, to cheesecake, chocolate slice and rice pudding, there’s something for everyone, every time. I highly recommend you try some gatherings like this. You can make and share an old favourite, or experiment with something new.

My grandson is our new addition, like a mascot really. The ladies love to see him each month and watch him grow. (Some of them have seen my daughter go from being a primary school student to being a mother herself). Today after giving up on nap time his mum asked him: ‘Would you like to come with mummy and have some quiet time now?’ ‘No,’ he said, “I want to talk to the ladies.” What a charmer, already!

I can’t wait to see what next month will bring
