Our Backyard Anglesea & Torquay

About this time every year I take a quick break after a long and busy summer, just to sit and relax and heal a little. I had booked to go to Byron Bay for some sunshine and warmth, I always just need to be close to the ocean, so if its not local coastal its either international or interstate. I had no choice but to move my flights and trip because of the torrential rain on the east coast of Australia which has been relentless, so I’ve had a few days off and mini holiday at home.

I headed to Melbourne to catch up with friends, had lovely dinners and lunches a bit of pampering here and there. Wednesday was the most rain in 24hours the state has had in what felt like forever, so it appears I just cant escape it but at the same time its been so nice to be still and enjoy what is right on my door step. I must say listening to rain pouring down through the night is also quite meditative.

As we navigate what is going on in the world, I figure your mind can be in either in ‘doomsday’ or a ‘let’s get on with life’ and appreciate every moment we have head space. Being a long weekend, we have many people coming to stay on the coast particularly given everyone is too scared to jump on a plane. With a whole bunch of holiday bookings in place, we have had to ask guests coming to stay to bring their own toilet paper, how bizarre that every supermarket doesn’t have any, our housekeepers have been unable to get any for our holiday properties.

Tomorrow I am going to a fund-raising lunch at the Anglesea Motor Yacht Club, this lunch is to raise the additional revenue required to enhance the existing building and bring it up to standard. It has been a grueling process for the commodore Wes Smith and the committee members to get approval to upgrade this facility. In fact, it has taken 8 years of bureaucratic red tape and push backs, the persistence of the Yacht Club to continually fight the good fight for our local community has been nothing short of outstanding & I congratulate all members involved for their dedication to deliver. They now have permit approval and the build can now get started. After seeing the sports rort scandal go on, it’s hard to digest how hard it has been for this club to get the support it so much deserves. We are very much proud of our sponsorship of this facility and its been wonderful to not only watch its growth with members but also see the friendships that develop through this community as a result of it. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation towards the club please do get in touch, they would love to hear from you.

The property market in Anglesea is still very strong, particularly in the category under $1 million, which tends to be transactional. Banks seem to be still very slow with finance approval, buyers frustrated is takes so long!

If you’re worried about the world and thinking you might have to undertake drastic measures of going into a quarantine, you may as well do it in paradise hey. Buying coastal property has never been more appealing.

Have a wonderful long weekend, enjoy every second. We look forward to seeing you at the open for inspections and private appointments.
