Property Blog – Week 27

By Rod Ryan

Had an appointment in the city first thing this morning and on the way into my office in Fremantle I looked out at the beautiful ’millpond’, the Indian Ocean only to see a huge warship.

After coming back from an appraisal at 1:30, I saw this monster of a ship parked right outside our office and thought to myself what a special town this Fremantle is.

USS Tarawa, an American helicopter carrier, is here for a few days and that means it’s going to be a big weekend here in Freo.

It’s been ’Another Big Week In Real Estate’ and we finished off the month in style with Joey Castaldi taking out the honours for top salesperson of the month for the very first time. Well done, Joey and don’t forget the crayfish.

On a serious note we have been doing some exceptional Real Estate with the highlight this week being our first commitment to lease a showroom in our huge new Cockburn Central commercial development. The lease is a multi national tyre company and we believe we will now have a domino effect with major brand tenants falling in line.

Residential Sales are steady however the pleasing thing is that some of our new initiatives seem to be gaining ground as we are being called in for more market valuations. We have a beauty going on the market next Monday in Maritime Terrace, Coogee and Bill continues to sell House & Land Packages in Canning Vale. He’s got some cheapies in Gosnells at $309,000 however they seem to be struggling at the moment.

We listed some 10 acres of land ripe for subdivision in Hammond Park and a multi storey development site in Fremantle. We’ve secured new managements this week in both Commercial and Residential and we are all working hard building this dynamic business.

No auctions this weekend however we’re all busy with Open for Inspections and appointments – gearing up for a huge month in May.

Catch you next week.
