Summer 2011 Property Guide Issue 109


MARKET REPORT

With the festive season upon us, we often take this time to reflect on the year that was. While the GFC was a couple of years ago now, the property market has still felt the impact of a turbulent economy.

Compton Green has had to deal with the challenges of the property market. As we reflect, we see that we have dealt with the market quite well. Growth in our team and the impact of our new brand has been a direct contribution to what we have called, a good year. Our days on market have stretched out to 55 days but we have simply sold more homes. This has given us a leadership position in Williamstown and Yarraville. We have also noted a new record price for a home in Yarraville and our most consistent and stable year in Property Management. As we look ahead in 2012 it looks like an exciting year for Compton Green. With the further impact of our new brand expected and the engagement of new people to our team and even bigger and more

informative events such as the State of the Market Information Evening, 2012 will be a year to look forward to. From the entire team at Compton Green, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe festive season. We look forward to working with all our friends and clients in 2012.

how green is your investment? Goes Green is an exciting initiative developed by Compton Green, your local real estate agent for over 80 years. Because houses are our business, we concentrated on water saving measures and other ‘green’ concerns, soon realising our research may help our landlords (and subsequently, their tenants). By developing a simple checklist and plan for improving the ‘green’ credentials of properties under our management, we believed we could create real benefits for all involved. Hence, Goes Green was born. Now we direct our attention to all landlords to make them aware of all the areas we can assist them in improving their homes. Goes Green aims to help our environment, save money for the tenant and add value to our landlords investment.

To find out how to green up your investment property contact your local Compton Green office or visit goesgreen.com.au
