Wow! How time flies. It's hard to believe that just last month we officially opened our doors for the first time.
We had our first networking / opening night earlier in the month and it was a great turn out with around 30 people coming by to see the office. We plan to have another in early December so stay tuned.
I'm also thrilled with the amount of local residents coming through the doors to say hello and seeing people stop to look at the properties in our shop window has been great. Our goal is to have the window cards rotated every fortnight to keep it fresh.
The rental market on the whole has slowed with longer than normal leasing timeframes, it should improve around mid October through to November but again slow down in December. January through to March is always the busiest time of year and you'll find most leases end/start around that time or mid year. But in saying that, some properties are an exception. We rented one in Tarragindi earlier in the month for $510 within two (2) weeks of advertising which was a great result.
