Most people know I am a frustrated Modernist living in a 1928 Queenslander house. So it will come to no surprise that my eyes are always peeled for a mid-century Barbie Dream Home. Always.
Poor Jason. He loves the Sow’s Ear and has worked so hard on it and here I am trying to sell it mid-renovation. Fear not, it’s not going to happen in a big hurry as we still have things to do on the Sow’s Ear and also the thought of another move is a major put-off.
But it doesn’t stop me from looking. We will move for the Barbie Dream Home if we ever find it and can afford it. The Sow’s Ear is just a lovely little adventure for us in the meantime.
I have realestate.com.au’s free mobile app on my smart phone and I check it regularly. This mobile app is excellent and I would say that regardless of this post being sponsored or not.
I’ve been using the app for a few months and there is nothing better than having full real estate listings at your finger tips when you hear about a new property. It is an essential app for any house voyeur.
The app allows you to see details of every home to buy and to rent. And if you are seriously looking for a home, you can save open for inspection and auction times straight to your phone's calendar.
Let me share with you some of the Barbie Dream Homes I found recently via the app:

The mobile app also allows you to refine your search by price, property types, features and surrounding suburbs like in the full web version. Knowing that a lot of mid-century homes are located in the western and southern suburbs, I can just tap in the postcode to get up a listing of homes in those areas.

Look at this sumptuous mid-century beauty in Toowong. The words “I want” escape my lips. If we had the cash I’d snap this one up in a jiffy.

I found another 60s Barbie Dream Home near the Brisbane River in Yeronga. It’s been fully renovated but it wouldn’t take much to get back the mid-century character it once had with the right furnishings and décor.

So that’s how I dream and scheme. More dreaming considering the prices of these properties…ha!
If you want to dream and scheme with me, why not download the realestate.com.au app for your phone or tablet? It gets 9 out of 10 for being very easy to download and use. It is the perfect app for house and interiors addicts.
