Our Backyard – Lorne

LORNE – HERE AND THERE

A super big weekend coming up in Lorne which is already underway with running of the Lorne Country Club’s Annual Golf Open Tournament which continues daily through until Sunday afternoon. If you’re not a golfer, the Lorne Lions Club has their major Foreshore Market all day on Saturday and the Deans Marsh Community have their market on Sunday.

The Lorne S.E.S. also have their fundraising B.B.Q. outside Foodworks on Saturday from 10am onwards and with great support from our local supermarket, this committed, albeit small group of local volunteers deserve all the support we can give them.

LORNE – MARKET ROUND UP

Only a month out from the official start of summer but from a coastal real estate perspective the Melbourne Cup weekend historically signals the start of stronger buyer demand for a coastal leisure property and this year is shaping as no different.

The past week has seen solid real estate enquiry with a number of negotiations underway, the contracting of the “development opportunity” at 8 Smithers Street for just under its full asking price and another multiple interest process that saw a Deans Marsh property sell for well in excess of its asking price.

Buyer demand has been solid in line with the forecasted trend but what has been most notable has been the “spontaneity” of buyers and the urgency under which they are looking to act – probably no surprise given the building pressures on stock levels in the Lorne market.
