Our Backyard


During the week just passed we had members of the Consumer Affairs Victoria compliance team run an information session here in Lorne at the Community House. The presentation was on the legal changes that are being enforced around price quoting, the statement of information and other legislation affecting the sale process.

In over thirty years of real estate practice it’s the first time that Consumer Affairs have brought their teaching to the coast and it is an initiative that we totally support.

To have real estate sales people from Anglesea to Apollo Bay, not all from Great Ocean Road Real Estate (but most of them), just goes to show that the majority in our industry are endeavoring to do the best they can in delivering best practice real estate services.


Its been a very interesting period over the past week with a lot of work “behind the scenes” without the results yet filtering through to our sales register with a number of prospective purchasers having valuations, finance appointments and building inspections, this activity is almost certain to produce some solid winter results. We can report the contracting of two Lorne View apartments in Bay Street at just under the asking price.

The coast as a whole continues to produce solid results with our Apollo Bay office completing three transactions for the week and a number of pre-negotiation inspections just like Lorne.

For those on the lookout for the perfect “Lorne beach house”, there is a beauty about to be marketed in Wallace Street. Sited on just under 1,000 sqm the five bedroom, two storey, dual living open plan home boasts a “coastal feel” among the tree tops whilst enjoying a spectacular ocean view and outdoor deck area. For further information, speak with one of our team.

Its officially the start of the whale watching season and although the big migrating mammals are yet to make their presence felt in Louttit Bay we are told they are on their way. If you’re on the coast over the weekend keep an eye out for the first to arrive.
