It’s one of the busiest weekends of the year on the coast and the Great Ocean Road will be hectic at times so plan your travel accordingly.

I have been banging on for a while now about the low number of properties for sale in Aireys Inlet, Fairhaven, Moggs Creek and Eastern View.  During this time there has been quite good buyer enquiry on properties in certain prices ranges.

A statistic, agents often refer to is what we call ‘Days on Market’.  This measures the number of days from when a property is listed for sale to when … Continue Reading »

For many, today will signal the commencement of the Melbourne Cup long weekend.  Even businesses that are open on Tuesday (like ours ☹), do their best to tune in at 3.00pm to the ‘race that stops a nation’ from Flemington Racecourse.
