Fletchers Group News Update – 13 March

March 13th 2013

After an unprecedented heatwave in Melbourne, we have finally had some relief with a welcome cool change sweeping through which will hopefully result in fewer sleepless nights!

Auction volumes were low on Saturday due to the Labour Day long weekend. The REIV recorded a clearance rate of 68 per cent, compared to 61 per cent on the same weekend last year. The upcoming weekend should provide a greater indication of the state of the market, with around 870 auctions scheduled. 

‘Team Stella’, led by Park Orchards and lifestyle property specialist, Traci Stella, recently demonstrated strong negotiation skills and ability to consistently deliver outstanding results, selling 21 Craithie Street in Park Orchards in six days! The one owner home, consistently maintained and updated for over 40 years, boasts beautiful established gardens and reserves, school and shops are nearby. 

Tomorrow night is the real estate industry’s ‘night of nights’, the 2013 REIA National Awards for Excellence. The night is a celebration honouring Australia’s most outstanding performers in the real estate profession and Fletchers are up for three awards: 

–      Best Large Residential Agency

–      Best Residential Agent (Tim Heavyside, previous winner in 2011)

–      Best Property Manager (Andrew Paterson) 

Held in Canberra at Parliament House, it should be a fantastic night and we hope to have some great news to share! 

Enjoy the rest of your week.

21 Craithie Road, Park Orchards
