Spring 2011 Property Guide Issue 107


MARKET REPORT

Well it’s spring time in Victoria and we can hardly believe Christmas is just around the corner. In the world of Real Estate we are often heard saying that it’s never dull and from the winter activity we have seen and judging from the level of current enquiry, this again rings true for the upcoming spring into summer seasons.

Around the globe it appears that a second GFC type event may be inevitable and whilst stock markets display never before seen volatility, the Australian dream of owning your own patch of dirt is again at the forefront of investors and occupiers visions alike. If you believe what you read and hear in the media that the dream is becoming more and more remote for many Australians, at Compton Green we continue to be pleasantly surprised by the level of enquiry and number of people seeking to secure a property in the inner west of Melbourne. With banks having recently displayed signs of easing the pain on borrowers by reducing fixed rates on their respective products, we are additionally encouraged by the responsibility shown by the RBA by holding rates. This move promotes confidence in those seeking borrowings to secure the property they desire. This of course has also been fuelled by the banks and independent lenders, eager to gain market share through their attempts to sway you from your current institution.

At Compton Green we are about to introduce some of the most significant changes to the business that it has seen since its inception in 1926. The most significant being the name change from Compton & Green to Compton Green and the removal of the ruby red which has sat along side the distinctive green since the beginning. In addition to the name change you will notice we have a fresh logo that symbolizes our commitment to the environment reflected in the leaf shape incorporating the appearance of the C and the G. The message that we convey is that we understand that real estate transactions represent significant “change” for those involved. Whether you are buying or selling, we feel we can facilitate the “change” the best way we know how through the conscientious abilities of our team. The change also flows from the recent take over by Adrian Butera and myself as Directors from Chris and Jill Angourias whom both devoted some 40 plus years to supporting change within the community.

The Compton Green family operating from two locations being Yarraville and Williamstown is devoted to facilitating change whether it is residential sales, property management or commercial property management and strives to continue to be industry leaders. Lastly, it’s my great pleasure to inform you that Adrian Butera again represented the state of Victoria in the Australasian Senior Auctioneers Competition this year held at the Sofitel Melbourne. Adrian with his distinctive call style, flawless counting and commanding performance was successful in making it through to the final round. It is a true testament to an Auctioneer and real estate leader boasting more than 20 years experience. Adrian continues to push himself to perform at his best and avails himself to be regularly judged by his peers in the industry. We wish you all the best in your search or sale and hope your change is a great experience. Brad Carlin-Smith Director 0466 605 522 bradc@comptongreen.com.au

Yarraville 260 Francis Street The success of this inviting two bedroom home is perhaps best reected by the fact that it has never been sold since being built some 64 years ago.

Wembley Primary School zoning, proximity to local village shops and easy access to Cruickshank Park ensure next generation will be as pleasing as those that preceded it Features

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
