9th October 2014
General – Market Roundup. The big news of the week has been the Reserve Bank and their decision to keep interest rates at 2.5% for the 14th consecutive month, being the longest rate hold in more than 10 years. In a statement, RBA Governor Glenn Stevens said the Bank expected growth to be a little below trend for the next several quarters. Furthermore Westpac Chief Economist Bill Evans has made the bold statement that interest rates are likely to stay at the current rate for the next twelve months. Lorne – Market Roundup. October has seen a strong start to the coastal property market and it appears the confidence in the Melbourne residential market is gradually making its way south. Our Anglesea office has contracted 5 deals over the past ten days and with another three under negotiation the migration of interest is building. Last weekend signified
one of the busiest weekends for real estate in Lorne for a number of months, but predictably so as the town kicks up a notch following the AFL Grand Final. On Saturday an apartment in the Cumberland Resort was auctioned and passed in on a vendor bid and sold immediately thereafter. As a follow on, a couple who were holidaying at the Resort, and first time property lookers were then directed by our team to the well-priced townhouse at 4/9 Albert Street. By the end of the following day there was a contract on the property and another sale had been concluded. And to cap it off there were another three negotiations that were getting close to conclusion – I will have the update next week!
