This week is review week in our office. Each agent, team, department and business are celebrating our successes of last year and looking at how we can improve in 2020.
Previously we have spoken many a time about the importance of marketing properties. It is an integral part of any successful sale – you can’t sell a secret. The more buyer groups you get through your property the more chance you have of finding the right buyer.
Many people will be doing their Christmas shopping over the next fortnight, and this includes for properties. Those buyers wanting to be in their new home for Christmas will have to sign a contract in the next couple of weeks. Remember that banks, solicitors, building and pest inspectors, accountants and even real estate agents begin to go on holidays extending the lengths of contracts.
Gardian will be holding our last In-Room Auction evening for the year on Monday the 25th of November at Harrup Park Country Club from 6pm.
Congratulations to all of our buyers and sellers who secured contracts so far this quarter. Gardian Real Estate agents were able to negotiate more than 70 contracts since July 1. There is no secret to our success. We don’t keep it to ourselves, we make sure we share this knowledge with you.
The Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) has been the state’s peak professional association for the real estate profession since 1918. Every year they review the market across the whole state.
We all know as buyers and sellers, now is the time to achieve our property goals in Mackay due to an increase in market activity and local median house prices. It is a big step, especially after what has happened over the past few years. Most people have taken a loss in some way or form in recent times and are still in recovery mode. We’re all in the same boat.
Gardian sold a total of 75 properties for this 3-month period (July-August-September) out of 340 properties sold in the Mackay area. This gives our agency a 22% market share. Great numbers considering that there are more than 40 agencies in town and we only have a sales team of 5 agents.
Gardian will be holding our next In-Room Auctions on Monday the 27th of May in the Gardian Corporate Office from 6pm. The Auction will be followed immediately by a Buyer Education Evening. Both the auction and the education session will be led by our agency auctioneer, Gordon MacDonald, who is excited about hosting the night.
