Welcome to Aireys Inlet

So Richmond are premiers for 2017 and Tigers supporters everywhere are celebrating.  There seems to be no escaping the ‘yellow and black’.  Bring on the cricket…

Aireys Inlet has been all over the news this week, but unfortunately for all wrong reasons after the disappearance of a 42 year old woman.  Let’s hope she turns up safe and well.

It was disappointing to see the media camped outside her … Continue Reading »

This weekend sees the annual Wiggle Amy’s Gran Fondo.

“Gran Fondo” is an age-old Italian cycling term meaning ‘great endurance’. Traditionally a Gran Fondo is a timed event that has a scenic, challenging, mountainous course.

Starting in Lorne, the cyclists will ride through the Otway Ranges and along a breath taking 40km stretch of the Great Ocean Road before finishing on the main street in Lorne.

With almost 12,000 riders taking part in … Continue Reading »

What a week we have had on the Surfcoast! Large ocean swells delighting the surfers, lots and lots of rain delighting those who rely on tank water and we even had snow at the back of Lorne.

In fact I had a surf on Tuesday with a local lad who had been ‘skiing’ in the Otway’s in the morning and was heading out for surf at his ‘local’ break. How many … Continue Reading »

Welcome to Aireys Inlet

Unless you have had your head buried in the sand this week, you have no doubt heard about the shark ‘incident’ on Tuesday at Cathedral Rock.

This is one of the more popular point breaks for surfing in the area and is regularly frequented by a number of Great Ocean Road Real Estate team members.

The person at the centre of the ‘attack’ is well known to all of … Continue Reading »

Million Dollar Listings

The cost of housing has continued to rise across most parts of the country over the past 12 months, pushing the proportion of homes selling for at least one million dollars to new record highs.  Bracket creep should come as no surprise in markets like Sydney and Melbourne where dwelling values have increased by 77% and 61% respectively over the past five years.  While the … Continue Reading »

Property Presentation

As I sit in my office at Aireys Inlet on a cold and windy August day it’s good know that we are only a few short weeks away from Spring and some consistently warmer weather. I like this time of year because we start to get calls from property owners seeking our advice as to how best present their home for sale and general market information … Continue Reading »
