LORNE – MARKET ROUND UP

The first month of the new financial year is looking to close on a high as the “spring in the step” of buyers that we reported following the federal election has continued. Its great to be able to read the media or turn on the television and not be belted with negativity surrounding the property market. With historic low interest rates, the “bottoming” (we hope) of consumer confidence, there is no reason why property consumers won’t continue to be active as we approach our busier months. What is becoming increasingly evident is the distinct shortage of available stock where all levels are at the lowest of the last decade. Add this fundamental rule of supply and demand to characteristics above and the recipe is coming together for what looks like being an active spring and summer period – fingers crossed!

LORNE – A LITTLE SECRET

Regional Roads Victoria (R.R.V.) have been doing some great work replacing all the “crossover” drainage points between Hird Street and Bay Street to the North. Keep and eye out for the relevant traffic management operators as they guide drivers through the work areas.
