Season Opener: February 16 – a quiet start to the year, but there are a couple of big weeks around the corner

Hey, isn’t it good to be back in amongst it in 2013! So far the anecdotal evidence is indicating the market is starting with a bit of a bang. Enquiry is up, the number of buyers through most opens is up, agents’ mood is up (compared to this time last year) and some of the [...]

In Port Phillip, the start of 2012 mirrored most of 2011, with stock-shortage being the buzz word amongst agents and buyers. As the year progressed, we saw vendors adjust their expectations as agents finally realised they had to work harder to make vendors understand that the value of their property may have fallen. The interest [...]

The sale of 29 Albert Street Port Melbourne by Frank Callaghan of Frank Gordon Real Estate this weekend was an indication that there is warmth in the market at around $1 million – particularly when the fundamentals are right with a property, as they were with Albert Street.

As we leave 2012 the Top End is officially off life support!

2012 Summary The talk was all doom and gloom at the start of 2012 after a bad finish to 2011 by the market. This talk flat lined the Autumn market with basically no action whatsoever, save a surprising burst around Easter with 5 at $10,000,000 changing hands. We went into Winter in a downward spiral with [...]

Of the nine auctions we reviewed, two sold before, four sold on the day and three passed in – not bad [...]

A busy day (that started off with a near perfect ¾ latte at Porgie and Mr. Jones at 8.30am). At all six auctions I attended, there were good numbers of people (averaging 100), and across the 14 auctions attended by our advocates in Port Phillip, only three were passed in. A great result for the owners [...]

The second was 71 and 71 A Grey [...]
Maybe now is the time to see the glass half full, rather than half empty.

Maybe now is the time to see the glass half full, rather than half empty.

At 6pm on Saturday, the James $M+ Clearance Rate was 61% across the 31 auctions we attended. The Weekly Review Bidderman was 1.5 bidders per auction.
