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 »

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 »

What a week in Real-estate!

Interesting that everywhere I turn I seem to be seeing stories on the property market and speculation about where it’s heading. Prices have dropped by 10-20%, some Melbourne suburbs prices are as low as 8 years ago…. So what’s causing all this and is it real? From my summation of everything I have analysed, the only variable or change to the market is that banks have … Continue Reading »
