The Nation Decides

Although the Federal election was announced only a short time ago it does feel like we have been waiting to vote for quite some time. As an Estate Agent it always interests me the effect a Federal Election will have on the activity and common behaviours of our clients both buyers and sellers. Without fail each election year we see people that are looking to buy or sell … Continue Reading »

The weather has finally turned cold and we are now seeing some good solid rain which brings with it a whole new feel to our beautiful township. This morning I heard our most recent guest of the ‘Pole House’ comment how amazing it was to witness last nights storm from this very unique location. They said they could feel the full force of the south westerly front passing down our … Continue Reading »

So the Bells Beach Classic is over for another year and congratulations to John John Florence and Courtney Conlogue of Hawaii and the US respectively, who won the men’s and women’s titles in solid surf. The circus has left town, however the swell has left with it, although beautiful weather has graced the coast for the last couple of days after some much needed rain a few days ago. Aireys … Continue Reading »

The Bells Beach surfing event is well underway although the much hyped ’50 year swell event’ hasn’t yet transpired.

There is a strong swell running at the moment, but nothing quite like what was forecast.  Perhaps a little Fake News being created by the contest organisers to try and generate more interest in the event?

There were a number of Anzac Day services along the Great Ocean Road on Thursday ranging from … Continue Reading »

Traditionally, Easter signals the end of the summer selling season even though summer officially ended some weeks ago. That said, this recent run of warm weather has some of us a little confused. The surf has been small as well which is typical of summer conditions. This presents a problem for organisers of the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach which is on again after running for more than 50 … Continue Reading »

So it’s on. The federal election has been called and May 18 we will all head to the polls. Buckle down for the real campaigning to begin.

Locally, works on the Moggs Creek bridge are about to commence with an increase in activity in the area recently. The current bridge built in 1956 is at the end of its design life and needs to be replaced. Expect to see plenty going … Continue Reading »

The campaigning for the federal election is off and running and I read with interest this morning about how unpopular the two men applying for the nations top job are.  It’s interesting to see whether voters vote for the leader, the party or the policies?  I guess it’s a combination of all these three things and some others no doubt.

Personally, I dislike elections.  The constant media, the cheesy hand shakes … Continue Reading »

A week of amazing weather was accompanied by some great conditions for surfers earlier in the week with a strong swell hitting the coast, especially Tuesday and Wednesday.  Unfortunately, this great weather is forecast to turn feral over the weekend, so be prepared.

Regularly as agents we are asked to offer our opinion on the market and a number of times this week I have replied, ‘Frustrating!’  Twice this week we … Continue Reading »

Who would have thought it? Only hours before the start of the much anticipated 2019 AFL season and what is the biggest story in football?

Injuries to key players? Can the Eagles go back to back? Will Collingwood fall over (again) at the final hurdle? No. Most of the media’s attention has focused around comments made on social media about a photo of … Continue Reading »
