Our Backyard – Anglesea

Welcome to Anglesea

Long weekend coming up to celebrate the Queens birthday…… of course Queen Elizabeth 11 actually celebrated her 90th birthday on April 21st. So what is this coming Monday, public holiday all about….. well It actually dates back to the sovereign’s birthday and was first officially marked in the United Kingdom in 1748, for King George II.

Since then, the date of the king or queen’s birthday has been determined throughout the British Empire and later the Commonwealth according to either different royal proclamations issued by the sovereign or governor or by statute laws passed by the local parliament. The date of the celebration today varies as adopted by each country and is generally set around the end of May to start of June, to coincide with a high probability of fine weather in the Northern Hemisphere for outdoor ceremonies.

In Victoria, that doesn’t apply to us however we’ll take it and throw in a double celebration as it is the official start of the ski season and beginning of winter. On the coast we just love getting friends and family together, lighting the fire, popping the heater on, sharing food, stories and wine! For the water lovers, we don’t care how cold it is, if the surf if great, there’s nothing stopping anyone from getting in and embracing the waves! As for the kids well somehow they just don’t seem to have a chill filter and really, go for it – get outside and enjoy that crisp fresh air.

This week, Sarah Henderson – federal member for Corangamite, called in to our Anglesea office, which gave me the perfect opportunity to chat to her about existing clients or potential purchasers worried about the future and having an investment property! I asked “what are the policies on capital gains tax?” Sarah responded with …. There will be no changes to negative gearing!!!! There you go, that’s a perfect political answer….

It’s a little bit like asking a real estate agent what price will the vendor really accept for their property?……. Let’s have a crack at the asking price hey!

Have a divine long weekend, may it be filled with warmth from who you’re sharing it with and some winter sun to brighten up your days.


See you at the open for inspections or any property by appointment.
