Throwing a house party beats picking up chicks in a dual cab ute!

As an 18 year old, I see my peers often on the rampage of taking out a loan for a car.

The words, ‘check out my new car!’ followed by friends in “AWE“, is something commonly found within my age group.  The amount of debt they just entered into for the car is not ever mentioned, nor months down the track when the reality of the loan repayments has started to kick in.

Property Ownership in Parliament 2015

Australia’s MPs currently used more properties for investment or commercial purposes (291 properties) than for residential or recreational purposes (250 properties).

But of the 226 members of Parliament, 84 of them hold at least one investment property and at least one mortgage or investment loan, meaning they are possibly negative gearing.

Parliament’s register of members’ interest does not disclose if its members who hold a loan against their investment properties are negatively geared.

But as one federal politician told Fairfax Media, after admitting he negatively geared a second property: “If someone has more than one mortgage of course they’re negatively gearing. You’d be an idiot not to.”

Real Estate ALERT – We Really Need to Do Something About this List in 2015
 I’m not sure what is more scary, that our profession as Real Estate Sales People/Agents is so poor, or that the men & women, namely the Politicians who run the country are rated below us.  At least we are rated above the sex working industry, with them rated below is actually frightening!

But wait, there’s more!

Facts about Real Estate Marketing: Print and Online [infographic]

Melissa Gaultier

The Real Estate industry is full of all types of professionals with their own special way of doing things. Some of the older players prefer to lean on local print media to attract buyers while the younger bucks can often rely entirely on online media.

However, as our infographic shows, buyers utilise a variety of touch-points when considering a property purchase and the best real estate professionals will incorporate all of these to successfully sell a property.

DOMAIN to take on realestate.com in Queensland

domain

What an interesting week in real Estate this week, as we got to meet our new DOMAIN Real Estate Accounts Rep for the Wide Bay Region – Jay Arthur.  Poor Jay had his work cut out for him.  Although DOMAIN has been leading the way in southern states of Australia, it’s rival realestate.com was & is in truth to be told, owning the Queensland market currently.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that this would come from realestate.com being so good at their jobs, as they are not!

The realestate.com local rep is appalling, customer service in general disgraceful & hugely over priced, with offices paying over $1000 – $5000 a month or more in some cases, just for the privilege of advertising with them.  Remember this is only a part of an agencies advertising budget a month for their clients.

Sales & Marketing – Real Estate Listing Forms

The Importance Of Communicating On Your Listing Forms

(Due to privacy, we have named the male sales agent Fred!).

On a weekly residential sale’s run a few years ago, a colleague had arranged for our sales team to inspect a property. He had listed the property some time ago & hadn’t been able to sell it.

So there we appeared.  Myself, the male colleague/listing agent, & another male sales agent.  The door opened & Fred was greeted by his female client with a huge smile.  Introductions took place and his client was all smiles until she saw me!

Little Pot Of Gold

We woke up on Sunday morning with the idea of driving around the Coral Coast taking some more photos for you all.  Our biggest problem was where to start.  The Coral Coast is so accessible from Bundaberg itself.  Agnes Waters, 121km away, is the most northern town & Burrum Heads 109 km, the most southern.  We decided to keep it to the coast so we could take the little boys & they could swim along the way at our various stops.  So armed with togs, towels, scooters we started off.
