APOLLO BAY- HERE & THERE
After a bustling Easter weekend and school holidays our local community has been left in shock after a fire in the early hours of Wednesday morning destroyed two of the towns oldest buildings along with extensive damage to a third, leaving a permanent change in the streetscape of the town. With a lengthy clean up and recovery operation of the site now ahead we acknowledge the fantastic and tireless work of our local CFA, emergency responders and supporting responding teams who managed to bring the blaze under control, which prevented the fire spreading to multiple other surrounding buildings. The town has shown fantastic resilience throughout the difficulties of past year and community spirit continues to be high as the town offers their support to the affected businesses in their recovery.
APOLLO BAY- MARKET ROUND UP
With property values across the nation skyrocketing at the fastest rate in 32 years according to new figures, the housing market continues to boom off the back of ultra-low interest rates and expectations they will stay low for years, as well as a recovering economy and a shortage of homes for sale as new listings fail to keep up with strong buyer demand. The coast continues to see house hunters starved of choice in what has been a sellers’ market with low stock levels and an unprecedented level of enquiry into properties as soon as listings go live creating an environment for premium prices to be achieved, with recently contracted: 35 Murray Square Apollo Bay selling in excess of $100,000 over the initial price indication with strong competition as a result of expression of interest from multiple competitors, who are now awaiting the next opportunity.
Given the fact the property offerings will remain tight and while we see interest rates low and Apollo Bay remaining on trend as one of the most desirable holiday destinations in the country there will be continued pressure on our market.
