I saw this vignette on a pre-dawn walk in Wellington a few weeks ago. The houses here are crammed in cheek by jowl on a vertiginous hillside. But they’re within walking distance of the city centre and command gorgeous views of the harbour. And so whatever’s behind that For Sale sign and that white picket fence is desirable and expensive real estate.

But even so, I think it takes big brass balls to be the sales agent telling potential buyers a seven-figure story with this digger parked out front and casually reaching down onto the property.
