Market Comment – Monday 17th December 2007

With the year drawing to a close there were quite a few frenzied negotiations over the weekend. Nobody wants to be left with “stale” property this week. If there are any properties you have had your eye on that have passed in or been sitting on the market a few weeks longer than normal, then now is the time to go after it.

It is a rare occurrence that an eleventh hour deal is not struck by quite a few agencies around Melbourne, coming into the Christmas hiatus.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our clients, the fantastic staff here at JPP and also all our new regular readers and new visitors to our web site who have all assisted in making the move to our new premises in Caulfield an outstanding success. From all the staff at JPP, I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season and whilst I am looking forward to a short break, I am looking forward to next year and the trials and tribulations that it shall bring.

Good luck to all

Ian James
