City real estate tradition continues with new look A RECENT re-branding to Professionals Geelong has sparked interest among homebuyers and sellers around the city, according to director Jason Barnett. The former Walter L Carr and Sons and Allpoints@Carr office joined the Professionals franchise late last year. Mr Barnett said he had received “great, positive feedback” on the change, which included a makeover for the office. “The high-profile position on Latrobe Terrace is great and people just have to look for the flags at the front of the office,” Mr Barnett said. “Professionals has a really good handle on social networking and a good grasp of newer technology like QR codes. “We’re happy to bring a fresh and new approach to this year. We’d love any past clients or anybody who is interested to come and chat to one of the guys to see whether we can help you get sold in the new year.” Mr Barnett said Professionals Geelong’s QR code system would allow potential buyers to use their “smart phones” to take pictures of barcodes on brochures or sales boards for more information on properties. “The phone scans the barcode and automatically directs the buyer to a website that tells them about the property.” Mr Barnett said his office was looking forward to capitalising on the Professionals technology

‘Busy time ahead’ for auction rates

Branded: Professionals Geelong staff Jason Barnett, Chris Carr, Max Hurle, Heather Boal, Rachel Spurgeon and Wendy Touhill will continue the company’s 160 years of real estate service. after enjoying a “friendly welcome” into the group. The re-branding was already returning results for his team and clients, he said. “The referral system within the Professionals

offices has already been successful. “Walter L Carr and Sons real estate is really proud to continue its 160 years of serving the Geelong community through this new change of marketing.”

REAL estate agents recorded a mixed bag of auction results last weekend but are gearing up for a busy few weeks, according to an industry representative. Real Estate Institute of Victoria chief executive Enzo Raimondo said REIV expected 180 auctions across Victoria this weekend compared to 126 in December and January. He predicted auction numbers could be up to 700 a weekend in Victoria by late February. “It’s important to note that it’s too early to compare the market last year,” Mr Raimondo said. “The REIV is expecting 180 auctions next weekend, with 390 the weekend after then 700 on the weekend February 19 and 20. “Since December 20 there have been 126 auctions reported, with a clearance rate of 55 per cent achieved. This compares with the 82 per cent recorded this weekend last year from 80 auctions.” Mr Raimondo said buyers still faced “key affordability issues”, with a 2.6 per cent in Geelong’s median price during the last quarter to $379,750. “This shows that housing affordability will be a key issue for buyers this year. “Increased house prices in the last quarter and over the past two years are due to an imbalance between housing supply and the needs of our growing population. “This is a systemic problem with the local market and steps need to be taken to increase supply over the medium-term to ensure it isn’t further diminished in the future.”

newhomes&land House design is value for money N ational Builders Group’s latest creation, Vaucluse, offers a clever design and value for

money. Designed specifically for buyers looking to capitalise on their property’s views, Vaucluse boasts a big balcony at the front of the house and a large terrace at the rear. The stylish design also encompasses a home theatre, a family room and an alfresco spot. A National Builders spokesperson says Vaucluse “redefines the meaning” of open-plan living.

ask their builder what is included in the total price of the home, including driveways, letterboxes, air-conditioning or flyscreens. “Choice when building a home is important, as you don’t want your house looking like everyone else’s. “Make your house your home by having the option to choose ormodify the floor plan, choose your facade and select your colours and finishes. “This way your house can match your lifestyle.” Mr Scott says energy-efficient homes are anther worthwhile consideration. “It can cost a bit more during the building process yet the longterm cost savings are endless. “Money will be saved on bills, and in some instances you can sell power back to the grid. “Hotondo Homes is Australia’s leading network of professional builders, where local builders are able to remain independent and local yet with the benefits of a large national network.” “There is the care and attention you can only get from a local builder, yet the professionalism and value for money that you can only get from a large building company.” Potential buyers can find out more information about Hotondo Homes by calling 1800 677 156 or visiting www.hotondo.com.au

uilding a home should be one of life’s most exciting and rewarding experience but there are a few things to consider before signing a contract, according to Hotondo Homes’ Peter Scott. He says potential buyers should always check their builder’s accreditation. “First and foremost you need to make sure that your builder is accredited and preferably local. “This means they will have knowledge of the building industry, local area knowledge and builders insurance. “Another consideration with the builder is whether they offer a builder’s warranty or not and a timeframe to make repairs after you have moved in,” Mr Scott says pricing is another “important factor” when building a home. “It is advised to get a loan preapproved so you know how much you’re allowed to borrow, which also means that you know your budget early on and can stick to it. “In addition, build with a company that offers up-front fixedprice contracts, as this will prevent any additional costs after the contract has been signed. “This also provides peace of mind because you know exactly the total cost of your new home.” Mr Scott encourages buyers to
