Meanwhile, new forecasts are predicting property prices to fall in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.  In fact, according to a BIS Oxford Economics report all Australia’s capital city markets are expected to … Continue Reading »

Despite the cooling weather, the local property market remains warm to hot. Low stock levels in certain price ranges are seeing demand for some properties result in multiple parties bidding.

I recently had two buyers offer a price on 13 Anderson Street, Aireys Inlet which was acceptable to the vendor.  In order to avoid a messy ‘Dutch Auction’, I arranged for both parties to meet at the property and we had … Continue Reading »

Rain, rain and more rain this week, but it didn’t stop a hardy few who gathered on the beach at Moggs Creek on Tuesday morning for what has become a small but solemn gathering for the Anzac Day dawn service.

Welcome to Aireys Inlet

Delightful autumnal conditions on the Surf Coast this week with some stunning mornings (see photo!) and mild days following the downpour from last week.

The surf has also been solid which is not unusual for this time of year.  Hopefully it will be good again for the annual Bells Beach Surfing Classic held every Easter.  In fact it is the longest running professional surfing competition in the world.
