‘Lorne – Market Round up’. The second last day of the 2011/2012 financial year and, yes it will be great to slam the door on one of the toughest of recent decades. We optimistically look forward to the coming period and see a lot of up-side to the turmoil of the past twelve months. The market has “taken a breath” and sits poised for those who desire the lifestyle asset. The challenge we throw to coastal buyers today is that Lorne has never represented better value. For those looking to secure their costal asset the challenge is to ensure you buy at the right time. Lorne has not experienced the upward growth that neighboring towns experienced over recent times and at a time when capital appreciation is not expected in the short term, Lorne is well poised to go against the trend.

Many would be surprised to know that for under a million dollars you can secure a 2 storey 4 bedroom residence with ocean views in the centre of town. There is no better time than right now to explore how good this value in Lorne really is.

‘Lorne – Weekly report’. The local footy team “The Dolphins” have continued their good winning form with a solid victory over Western Eagles last weekend in Lorne. This week the boys travel to Simpson in what is match of the round, and to head back to the coast victorious would see the boys as one of the flag favorites! – Good luck boys. Our U/13 junior girls have also continued on their winning way and again with a hard tussle forecast this week a win would solidify their top 3 positioning.

On the real estate front a great sale beneath the Golf Course during the week and a further Contract at Wye River helped “keep the wolves from the door” as the financial year draws to a close, and with the lid being kept on the result of another $2m+ sale on the coast the platform for 2012/2013 has been set.
