Cup Weekend De-brief

Cup weekend was bustling in Lorne last week! Busy on the sales front and our accommodation business “Great Ocean Road Holidays” had the greatest occupancy of any ‘cup weekend’ since we have been trading. The girls did a fantastic job with minimal issues.

On the sales front.

We had one sale in Lorne that sold 8% above its asking price due to two parties offering and interestingly we had the same event occur the week before on a top end property that sold before any marketing was implemented.

It is so easy for an agent to spruik that “the market is hot” but results speak for themselves – there is no doubt we have gathered momentum and our selling agents and most importantly our Vendors, are starting to smile again.

On the local news front.

Weather and waves look good for the weekend ahead and the crowds are normally reduced after any long weekend. Book online (24 hours) if you require any accommodation.

I went to the Aireys Inlet / Lorne school fair last weekend over at Aireys Inlet, chomped on some fairy floss, bought some cheap jewellery for my unsuspecting 7 y.o. daughter, wore a padded sumo wrestling suit and shirt fronted my 10 y.o. son (which he thoroughly enjoyed!). Many local towns have similar fairs or festivals eg. Aireys, Lorne, Birregurra, Deans Marsh. Email me should you like a calendar of dates. Come along and enjoy the hospitality and get a feel for each town’s local character.
