Auction preview 30 and 31 October

October 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

  • Last weekend: 1,126 auctions, clearance rate of 67 per cent
  • This weekend last year: 338 auctions, clearance rate of 83 per cent
  • This weekend 2008: 176 auctions, clearance rate of 66 per cent


Unlike the past few years, the market is delivering stable and consistent outcomes. It’s also clear that conditions continue to be very favourable to buyers.

This fact was highlighted last weekend, when there were over 1,000 auctions and the proportion sold was consistent with previous weekends.

Some suburbs are defying the trend; last weekend four suburbs achieved perfect clearance rates: Collingwood, North Melbourne, Carnegie and Nunawading.

The REIV expects current strong levels of listings until Christmas and sees no evidence that the clearance rate will vary substantially from the current position.

This is a good spring to be a buyer, especially of homes being offered at auction.

Power price shock hits households

October 21, 2010 § Leave a comment


Electricity bills have shot past $3200 a year for some Victorians amid soaring prices and blowouts in energy use.

And annual costs could hit a shocking $10,000 for big households in five years if a carbon tax is introduced, an analyst warns.

Exclusive research on the state’s residential power bills reveals the biggest are in Guys Hill on Melbourne‘s eastern outskirts, Mickleham, Curlewis, southeast of Geelong, and Merricks North on the Mornington Peninsula.

Areas with the lowest median bills include Flemington, Golden Beach in Gippsland, Jacana in Melbourne’s north and Carlton.

The cost of bills are influenced by price, location, how large and energy-efficient homes are, how often people are at home and whether there is electric or gas heating and hot water.

October 18, 2010 § Leave a comment


The bubble at the top end of Melbourne‘s property market has burst.

The latest Real Estate Institute of Victoria figures show median house prices fell in many of the city’s wealthiest suburbs in the September quarter.

Prices slumped by more than 10 per cent in 14 of Melbourne’s 40 million-dollar suburbs, with South Yarra, Brighton, Albert Park and Kew among the hardest hit.

Hawthorn fared the worst, with the median dropping 26.9 per cent to $1,197,500 in the three months to October 1.

Overall, million-dollar suburbs decreased in value by 1.6 per cent during the period.

Spring is in the air!

October 13, 2010 § Leave a comment

The sun is starting to shine, grass is being cut and the sweet scent of blossom wafts through the air. It is these tell tale signs that mark the beginning of the spring social season. For the J.C Street girls this is an exciting, hectic and action packed time of the year.   

Spring Racing Carnival… The countdown is over. Couture dresses, sparkling jewels, extravagant hats and sensational stilettos complimented by a day off and glass of Champagne. What more could a girl want? So unless Mother Nature rains on our parade the J.C Street girls will be at the spectacle just before the first horse jumps.

We would love to see you at the race. Who will you be? Where will you be? And most importantly what will you wear?

 As we don’t take well to falling down rabbit holes remember to let one of the girls know where to find you!

North Melbourne graffiti crackdown

October 11, 2010 § Leave a comment


Social media websites have been blamed for turning North Melbourne into a graffiti hot-spot attracting under-age taggers from across the state.

Sergeant Monique Kelley said some local traders were believed to be selling spray-cans to the youths, which is illegal if the buyer is under 18.

And she said it was likely the sales were being promoted online, as kids were travelling from as far afield as Echuca. “Word of mouth can’t travel this well. They (the businesses) must be advertising on Facebook or another social site,” Sgt Kelley told Melbourne Leader.

The increase in the amount of tagging in the suburb has prompted police to launch Operation Blackwood at and around North Melbourne train station. Police have swarmed the precinct twice in the past month and issued seven $587 on-the-spot fines for possession of spray cans without a valid excuse. Officers have also confiscated 120 aerosol cans, including one car-load containing 70 cans.
