Starting July 2020, in the post Brisbane and SEQ lockdown, we as a population, couldn’t wait to travel.   And…. this need-to-travel remains! Short stay operators, on the average, had a rough time of it from March to June last year, with the majority forced to switch rooms from short to long stay.  There was simply little choice. Of course, this saw the business bottom lines deflate both significantly and rapidly – mostly within the month of March.  Beware the Ides of March as they say! However, that determined need-to-travel-anywhere has seen almost every operator who has reverted partially or wholly back to short stay,Read More →

All caretaking agreements will provide for an annual review of the caretaker’s remuneration. Unless there has been a specific change that review will normally be on the anniversary of the commencement date of the agreement.  Remuneration reviews in agreements can be specified to occur by the greater (or lesser) of two methods.  They are most commonly reviewed by a fixed percentage, CPI or market review.  Care should be taken when considering the drafting of the review clauses to ensure they, firstly, work correctly and secondly, that there is sufficient detail included in the review clause  (particularly for a market review clause) which sets out theRead More →

Forward bookings belong to the lot owner. Trying to hang on to them can cost more than you think When you lose a Lot from your Letting Pool don’t be tempted to try to hang on to the forward bookings – you have to act in the best interests of your, soon to be former, client (the lot owner). At the very least, you must ensure that the guests with the forward bookings are aware of the change over in management, so that they can keep their forward booking if they wish. A Noosa Real Estate Agent who failed to do this was recently finedRead More →

Editor: This article is discussing the South East Queensland rental market, in particular. Market conditions in other regions may differ. The rental market is PUMPING right now. I know this because my managers are complaining to me they’re getting too many enquiries to keep up. Prospective tenants are complaining to me no one is returning their calls or emails (again, because managers claim they don’t have time to do so). For the first time in our agency’s history, we’re struggling to meet our contractual obligation with RealEstate.com.au for rental upgrades. We normally hit our quarterly rental upgrade obligations within the first 2 weeks of the quarter.Read More →

We were forwarded an interesting proclamation from the garrulous folks at AccomProperties this week stating rather spuriously their website was achieving “record sales activity”, and conflating this with a misleading side-by-side graphic of our site which apparently “speaks for itself”. They had of course rated themselves A and us F based on a mysterious “G.T. Metrix”… Now look, I love a good Gin & Tonic as much as the next guy, and I’m sure it’s a great metrix on a hot summer’s day (keeps the malaria away after all) but I wouldn’t be measuring my website’s performance as an effective marketing portal on a G.T.Read More →
