Our Backyard – Apollo Bay

Good afternoon from Apollo Bay

The Australia Day long weekend has long been recognised as the ultimate buyer’s weekend of the coastal real estate calendar.

It is a time of the year when Melbourne and regional press focus on the outcomes of the coast as results are a great indicator for the lifestyle property trends for the year ahead. Many people ask, why is this weekend such a popular selection for Vendors taking their property to the market?

For those who are unaware, statistically the month of January contributes more to our annual turnover than any other month of the year. It is a month where visitor numbers are at their highest and the “coastal sizzle” is at its strongest.

Campaigns for the sale of properties traditionally kick off as the working year draws to a close in mid to late December, then have a slight break through Christmas and the New Year before continuing into full momentum through January.

Whether it be public auction, expression of interest or public tender, the common theme is that all strategies look to culminate their campaigns toward the end of January.

Have a great long weekend
