This week I was flicking through some paperwork which I had retained in a file relating to all of the listings on the internet for sale in our area at different times in the past. If we compare the number of listings at times in the past to now it makes for interesting reading. 

For example in May 2012 between Aireys Inlet, Fairhaven, Moggs Creek and Eastern View there were 44 houses for sale, 3 units/townhouses, and 27 blocks of land. Today there are 17 houses for sale, no units or townhouses and 6 blocks of land. What an amazing difference in the area, twelve years apart. Currently, less than a third of what was for sale then. Back then buyers were almost spoilt for choice. Today it is a very different story. And whilst one might expect that less listings would lead  to greater competition for each property which in turn would lead to higher prices today, the reality is that the buying confidence is not at the same levels as it was back in 2012.

As we head deeper into winter, it will be fascinating to see how things play out.

In other news, in coming weeks Forest Fire Management Victoria (FFMVic) will be conducting mechanical fuel treatment works (mulching) within the Great Ocean Road Reserve West as part of the Joint Fuel Management Program. This work is undertaken on behalf of the Surf Coast Shire Council.

To find out more about fuel management near you, visit ffm.vic.gov.au/bushfire-fuel-and-risk-management/joint-fuel-management-program or Call VicEmergency Hotline on 1800 226 226.

Also the Repair Cafe is on this Sunday at the Aireys Inlet Community Hall between 10am and 1.30pm where the amazing volunteers will repair, mend and fix anything broken. No appointment needed, just bring it in. 

The Repair Cafe has now also become a collection point for Apparel. An innovative textile recovery and recycling service. The Repair Cafe will arrange for the transportation of your unwanted garments directly to Apparel who will turn your unwanted textiles into new products. They then donate any money made from the recycling to Save the Children Australia, an aid and development agency dedicated to helping children in Australia and overseas.
