Our Backyard – Anglesea

Happy New Year! We usually tend to play down celebrating New Years Eve, although for some reason I end up having an impromptu party each year & have a ball. This year I had two of my closest friends arrive back from overseas & I couldn’t believe my luck that they could both join our Anglesea crew to celebrate the beginning of 2018. It was one of the best New … Continue Reading »

What an incredible week it’s been! Like the rest of the world, it’s been crazy busy and whilst most people are on the home straight finishing up work for a well-deserved rest, we ourselves feel a bit like Santa about to hit the skies to try to look after everyone for their holidays. As it goes in our ‘holiday’ business a house fully booked with back to back bookings until … Continue Reading »

It’s hard to imagine that only 40 years ago it was very difficult for a woman to secure a loan to buy a house, near impossible for a single mother to be approved based on her circumstances. They were judged similarly for rental too, which meant prior to the 70’s women in unstable family situations had no choice but to stay.

With incredible strength and determination, a woman that found herself … Continue Reading »

Great news again for new home buyers with the option for people to save for a deposit using their superannuation fund. This was introduced from July 1 this year, however there has been talk of making further changes again making it more appealing.

The idea is for buyers to put savings into their super fund via their payroll, so salary sacrifice which will minimize overall tax. Currently it’s been up to … Continue Reading »

This time in a month it will be the week before Christmas!!!!!!! For a change I have actually had to head out to major shopping strips instead of the online delivery to the office door situation. I was thinking to myself, these retailers always put out the decorations and marketing way too early. No not at all, exactly the sensible time it is to probably start planning for the upcoming … Continue Reading »

What an amazing response we had last week for 8A Wray Street! One open for inspection, multiple interested parties and sold on the first day we had it on the market.

This is certainly indicative of buyers trying to secure a property at the entry level price range, being a first home purchase for many there is an element of really wanting to get it right. It’s understandable to me that … Continue Reading »

Have we stepped back into the 1950’s or have we been secretly hiding under a false blanket of liberation & equality?

It just seems that the news recently has highlighted that women’s rights and gender equality is still an issue that must be addressed, not just in Australia but in the world. How can it be fair that 2 people doing the same job are paid differently because one is male … Continue Reading »

We absolutely love selling property to buyers we have strong relationships with and that means you! I wrote a few weeks ago that we had properties in certain price points and to let us know if you would like to register your interest in a particular category.

This week we sold 4/6 Great Ocean Road, Anglesea with 2 offers and successfully selling the property for $557,500.  If you’re thinking you’ve missed … Continue Reading »

There is talk this week that the property market is flattening out after recent retail spends are trending downwards, also the advertising dollar trending this way too. Clearance rates at Auction down compared to this time last year! With all of this information going against the grain for me and the feel I’m getting from the market and buyers, I decided to investigate further as usually we get fed  the … Continue Reading »

You will be thrilled that you won’t have to read any more from me about AFL with the season now over,  so that means I can get back to talking property and what is currently going on in the Anglesea market.

But seriously how good were the Tigers last week! Thank you for all the messages and emails – I loved loved loved receiving them.

There are still plenty of buyers wanting … Continue Reading »
