Property Blog – Week 4

By Rod Ryan

It’s Friday just after lunch and I’ve been looking forward to letting you know just what’s been going on at De Freitas & Ryan again in what has been another ’Big Week in Real Estate’.

I thought we’d be a bit distracted with our Cup Day Lunch on Tuesday (what a fantastic time we had at Clancy’s) and the interest rate increase however, we’ve all been extremely busy.

On the commercial side of things, we’ve just sold a large 226 sqm showroom in Cockburn Central for $825,000 and we’ve been dealing with a number of storage unit complexes. Incidentally, we’ve got some more storage unit investments from as little as $66,000. Our commercial division is working extrememly hard and the results we’re achieving are very satisfying!

On the residential side of things, again, we’ve been really busy and we have some property owners in Hammond Park who are just thrilled that Bill McLarty sold their villa for $399,000 after two weeks on the market. The house and land package side of things is really building for us as well and we can offer you a beautiful 4 bedroom 2 bathroom home with double garage in Success for as little as $420,000.

We’ve also just picked up 14 brand new ready to move into Villas in Kelmscott with 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms for $345,000 and we are very excited about these!

Demand for property is still very strong and being a new company, we have to work very hard to acquire new business but we are really starting to get there.

On the rental side, we have about ten people a day calling looking for properties to rent around the Fremantle/South of the River area but as all our rentals have ben let, we don’t have a lot to offer new prospective tenants.

If you know anyone who wants their property managed please get in contact with us as our staff are absolutely fantastic at what they do and are keen for new business.

In other news, our new company shirts have been ordered, new flashy signs from Chromagrfx have been given the thumbs up by our reps and our Bill McLarty is all excited as his daughter Victoria, has just arrived home after a 44,000 km trek around Australia over the past 12 months.

Business is good and we seem to be getting busier and busier and as a result, we have just made the decision to add two new residential salespeople to our ranks.

Look forward to catching you next week and thanks again for being part of our company’s,

“It’s Been A Big Week In Real Estate”
