LORNE – HERE AND THERE

Without doubt the biggest news of the week has been from the Reserve Bank cutting the cash rate to 1.5% – Amazing! Never have we seen interest rates at these levels and the flow on effects will make for interesting observations.

A big weekend in town with the Mantra Resort hosting the 2016 Victorian CFA/SES Community Safety and Hazard Awareness State Forum. It is expected that there will be in excess of 500 volunteers attending with a full display of multiple appliances/trucks on active display in the Mantra Grounds.

If that’s too passive for you, get up to the Stribling Reserve Oval where the locals play their last home game of netball and football for the 2016 season. Our senior footballers are playing to secure third position on the ladder with our A Grade netballers looking to hold onto 5th place.

LORNE – MARKET ROUND Up

The last month of winter is always good to see the back of, for coastal lifestyle agents looking for sales activity to gain momentum through spring, as we charge towards summer. It’s always difficult to forecast forward markets but we are confident that the strength through last summer will be the catalysts moving forward.

Online enquiry has been strong over the cooler months reinforcing that Lorne is front of mind in lifestyle planning for the future. We closed the door on July having just achieved our target for the month and giving us confidence for the months ahead.

We are auctioning an acre of land on Big Hill on the 20th of August in our upstairs boardroom at 12 noon and the early interest has been encouraging.
