As we enter Spring, where stock levels are expected to become even greater, buyers are encouraged to take advantage of good stock levels and therefore choice, and sellers are reminded of the need to be priced and presented in such a way to ensure that their property stands out from the crowd.
It is true that traditionally there are more buyers around in Spring, but equally there is a lot more stock, making competition for sellers even greater, as buyers are currently quite discerning and cautious.
We see a strong Spring through to Christmas selling period in the local property market after the Federal Election is behind us, providing more certainty as to what the future may hold.
On a personal note, recently the annual real estate awards night was held at a gala ball attended by over 1000 real estate agents. At this event all agents are recognised for their performance for the previous 12 months. Congratulations to Richard Teuchert from the office for achieving the $15 to $20 million dollar recognition and John Woon for being ranked in the top 20 Rookies in his first year.
The highest possible sales success level of recognition is that of Grandmaster, for 100 listings sold in a year and/or $50 million dollars worth of listings sold. Evolution Realty had achieved the only local Grandmaster award in the Applecross area, which is a mighty feat, given the amount of competitors in the area, proving that under the new brand of Evolution Realty I have been fortunate to maintain, even grow what was a very loyal client and market place following. I am thankful to still be selling the most in the local market personally. Thank you to the market place for acceptance of the Evolution brand, and all buyers and sellers that have engaged us. As we continue to expand and strengthen our brand, we will be on the lookout for 2-3 new experienced sales persons in the coming months who wish to advance their own careers and benefit from our considerable momentum and, market share and the opportunities that flow from that. Watch this space for exciting developments, and see you in the market place.
