6 years and what a way to celebrate!!!

By Haesley Cush

The 1st of September marks 6 years at the steering wheel at Ray White New Farm.  We have grown from a 4 person operation to a team of 36. We can proudly state a market share growth from 2% to nearly 30%, we have actively involved ourselves in fund raising in the community and I believe we stand for a business of integrity in the real estate fraternity. A huge ‘thank you’ for all your support over the last 6 years and I look forward to many many more years!

Over the last couple of weeks I have done some investigating into the American market and I will now have a peak into the European market. The U.S. property sales are down however numbers are still high in the prestige market (apartment sales $5 million+).  As a result of the corrections to property prices there seems to be buyers in the major cities at the reduced price levels. The more affordable principal places ($600k+), in cities like New York (Manhattan), are seeing reasonable interest and that competition is helping hold prices.

At home we have again seen a solid month from first home buyers, however we have also started to see some good movement in our waterfront sales $3million and above.  The investment management team has increased significantly and tenants are back in the market in a big way!

A quick plug for our annual ‘Property and Wine Expo’ in October, I’ll send an email later this month.

Happy Hunting

  • It’s Heating Up again as the Cold Weather Comes in

    “When is the best time to sell?” A question I’m asked a lot. Is it Spring? Surely it’s Spring, the market is waking up after winter, the birds are singing and perfume of flowers in the garden must bring in buyers like bees to the honey pot. The answer to when, is a little less poetic and less predictable. Real estate is … Read more
