Our Backyard

As a real estate agent probably the most common thing I hear not just from buyers but literally anyone I talk to about property, is that they wished they had of purchased a property earlier in life or were more educated in finance as a teenager / young adult. I have to say even I am in that boat myself!  I purchased my first property after sitting in a café with my boyfriend at the time, reading through ‘property listings’ in the Age on a Saturday morning. We decided there and then to pop around to an auction, an hour later we were vigorously putting our hand up which resulted in us purchasing the house. The relationship wasn’t a great investment but the property certainly was!

Of course there is a lot to say about being younger and getting out into the world, travelling and gaining life lessons, having fun and pushing personal boundaries with the view of becoming an all rounded wise person.  I watched my mum struggle to pay the mortgage and make ends meet, interest rates were absolutely crazy between 17-19% but of course we know how the story ended, she had that house for 40 years and like most baby boomers, did very well with growth and return. She never really travelled or saw much of the world, so for me it was a high priority to spread my wings and explore all I could.

The question is whether we can have both financial security along with the balance of seeking enlightenment and perhaps with help and support we can.

Over a year ago we employed Eliza Hawkins, she has grown up in Anglesea all her life and her father a reputable carpenter, so she has watched him build and make over properties. Eliza is 19 years old and TODAY she settles on her first property! We are all super proud of her and thrilled to have her working with us assisting guests in Holiday Accommodation and supporting the rest of the team overall. Eliza has an incredible family who are looking forward to helping her renovate and bring her new home to life.

If you are in the market & sitting back wondering whether you should take the plunge, perhaps you should just take a chance and back yourself in. A coastal move is also so much more than making the numbers stack up, we all know it’s a positive lifestyle change that can add value to your spirit & future.

The end of financial year is a great time to chat to your accountant and plan out the next 12 months. Next week brings in a new year and new opportunities and we hope that we can assist you on that journey.
