Property Blog – Week 3

By Rod Ryan

It’s Friday, 11:30am and I have just finished my appointment with Tonia Binns from Chromagrafx, who has been helping us sort out some issues with For Sale signs. During the week, some of our Sales Reps made mention of negative feedback in relation to our For Sale signs in that they are too small and need to be improved.

As a result, we have had to re visit our signage and I am confident after today’s meeting with Chromagrafx that we’ll come up with something special.

Thursday being the 1st of the month means putting on the ’accountant hat’, adding up and processing the sales that have taken place for October. It’s been an extremely busy time and to be honest, it is the highest monthly figures I’ve ever recorded in a career that commenced way back in 1970.

If anyone tells you that property here in W.A is not doing well then I suggest you are talking to the wrong people.

It certainly has been a ’Big Week in Real Estate’ with Travis Lindstrom finalising his large commercial sale in Tamara Drive, Cockburn Central for $1.185 million dollars and I understand we’ve just sold two more factory units in Hammond Road, Cockburn Central one for $285,000 and the other for $385,000. These units will be completed in June 2008 and they have been purchased by local business for their own use.

Commercial leasing has been active as usual with the leasing this week of a large 535 sqm factory warehouse in Hines Rd, O’ Connor for $60,000 per annum.

Our Joseph Castaldi has just sold a beautiful new home in St. Joseph Fairway, Success for $543,500 and Bill McLarty has only one block left out of 10 to sell in Wattle Grove.

The residential market is really very busy however, our company is in need of more properties to sell. I’m putting one on the market today in Yangebup and Miguel De Freitas has just put a two storey home in Hamilton Hill on the market for $599,000 which I feel we will sell this weekend.

The Cup is on Tuesday next week and our General Manager, Dalena Lindstrom has been busy combining our ’October Success Lunch’ with the Cup festivities so there doesn’t seem to be much hope of getting any work done at De Freitas & Ryan next Tuesday and that is definitely something you can BET on.

November is already shaping up as an extremely busy month so we’ll catch you next week. Thanks again for being part of our Company’s:
