Our Backyard Anglesea & Torquay

The start of the school holidays commenced last week and with lovely weather on the radar for the upcoming week, it’s a great time to visit the coast.  Outside of post-Christmas and January, next week is our second busiest time of the year and the majority of our holiday properties are booked right across all of our offices along the coastline. Whilst this week was the first time I lit … Continue Reading »

Happy International Women’s Day!

In a world where there is so much inconsistency with equality in relation to gender & discrimination still very much an issue with representation in business, it’s positive that our little office in Anglesea has strength in numbers with incredible women.

It’s disheartening that overall Australia really hasn’t progressed too much from the 70’s in relation to equal pay for equal roles and across the board males still … Continue Reading »

If this is Autumn, I’ll take it, thank you very much!

This time of year we start taking holidays ourselves after working a solid 6 months for our high peak season and business usually starts to slow down with a change in weather. Not this year, literally we have check in’s every day at the moment, it’s not even just weekends that are busy! Our holiday accommodation business is super busy … Continue Reading »

The morning news was unfortunately not a great start to the weekend, with the Australian dollar taking a dive. If there is any upside to stock market shifts like this, then it can potentially transpire to more pressure for the RBA (reserve bank of Australia) to further reduce the cash rate. With the royal commission findings & banks now being held more accountable, this could not only assist with current … Continue Reading »

8th February 2019

With the property market continually getting negative exposure, it feels pretty good to now hear buyers telling us that an apparent downturn certainly isn’t the case in Anglesea! A fantastic week with exceptional sales. Ben ran another ‘best and final offers’ campaign on 58A Bingley Parade, with 3 offers coming in well over the asking price, an excellent result in only two weeks on market. 13 Niblick Street … Continue Reading »

We tested the market last weekend with 3 x Auctions, all had fantastic attendances, loads of interest, our Auctioneer did a brilliant job….. It’s unfortunate all the buyers that told us they would be there bidding, took the contracts and said they were in the price range and ready to buy…. Actually weren’t! It’s a funny old game the Auction one, somewhere along the line we must get lost in … Continue Reading »

Another big week in real estate for the coast, it’s wonderful to see so many buyers again through properties and having new listings every week to the market. We are thrilled to be offering excellent choice options in varied price brackets.

Working in this industry, with marketing deadlines, arranging print and copy our minds are always a week or two ahead, so I’m already thinking about the upcoming  Australia Day long … Continue Reading »

The January momentum has definitely come into play this week with an incredible response from buyers to open for inspections but more importantly making offers on property! Our Star property this week goes to 6/2A Walker Street, where Ben end up running a ‘best and final’ offers with close date of Wednesday with the amount of interest we had. There were 7 contracted offers, with the final accepted offer being … Continue Reading »

A great friend of mine recently started a position at the Bureau of Meteorology and she said since working there, it’s incredible how much people talk about the weather. It’s like when you want to buy a new car and then it seems like everyone is driving that particular model. But seriously how great is a heat wave and then a cool change! Whilst the traffic is more hectic than … Continue Reading »
