The big news this week for homebuyers was not Gary Ablett or the GF Replay; it was the major stock inflows that took place on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday when agents began their marketing campaigns for the next Super Saturday - October 23rd. Check out the size of the Weekly Review this week. While one weekend does not make a summer, we now seem to have finally started the Spring surge.

Easter is a week away and its the first break since the start of 2010 for most frantic home buyers (unless you have bought).

It is no surprise that we have seen a very strong start to the 2010 property calendar.
With the media shifting from their doom and gloom predictions of 2009 to showing forecasts that Broadmeadows will soon have a million dollar median – it just goes to show how much influence they may have on the market. [...]
