The power of positivity

Wednesday 21 Aug 2019

Last week in this blog I talked about my belief in the potential that exists across the Sydney property market which prompted some interesting conversations within our team and also with a number of our clients. This week, at the risk of sounding like a coffee mug motivational slogan, I think it’s time to discuss the power of positivity&helli ....

Seize the potential

Wednesday 14 Aug 2019

I came to a slightly odd realisation this week. I was thinking about the state of the market and considering the strength of our team when I realised I look for the same thing in people as I do in property. I seek potential. And it’s definitely out there but you do have to work for it. Let me explain…. In my view potential represents o ....

It is clear…

Wednesday 07 Aug 2019

I’ve been talking about lack of stock for a couple of weeks now and while I don’t want to bore you by flogging the same issue ad nauseum I saw some numbers this week that I believe are worthy of sharing and definitely worth considering because I think make things clear… I know there is a lot more to buying and selling property th ....

Is it too late?

Wednesday 31 Jul 2019

We have been seeing over recent weeks that a shortage of available stock has created a window of opportunity for those brave enough to list because demand from buyers has reinvigorated faster than expected. But that is changing. With an increasing number of exciting new listings now starting to become available does it mean the window is ....

Unpacking the premium market

Wednesday 24 Jul 2019

Our team of sales agents have negotiated several high-end, high value property sales in recent weeks and I’ve been looking at how Morton specialises in supporting and delivering our clients success in the premium property market. What does it mean and what does it take? My conclusions might surprise you… The thing about the &lsquo ....

The invaluable value

Wednesday 17 Jul 2019

The thing about property is that while the focus is always on the bricks and mortar, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the size and style of the living spaces etc., there is another important factor in determining the desirability of a dwelling. It is impossible to give it a true value, but agents know only too well that in real terms it is inv ....

They’re back!

Tuesday 09 Jul 2019

Whilst I’m sure you will have read about it elsewhere, I want to officially confirm the rumours. Buyers are back. They really really are and they are really really ready to do deals right now. The problem is the majority of vendors are not. Ready I mean. And so we live in interesting times.  They say ‘nobody rings a bell at the top ....

The room full of mirrors

Tuesday 02 Jul 2019

I am not sure if the wider community will have noticed, or if it is a highlight only to those operating in the real estate bubble, but our profession is currently in the midst of our industry awards season. And whilst I acknowledge awards might not generate the same headlines as auction clearance rates, this is an incredibly important time for our ....

Asking Questions

Tuesday 25 Jun 2019

I talk a lot. Contrary to what some of you might think it isn’t because I like the sound of my own voice, it’s because I consider sharing information and insights about the market is an important part of the role of a property professional. But equally so is listening and at Morton we make it our business to ask questions. We don’ ....

Kicking Goals

Wednesday 19 Jun 2019

I’ve been reminded this week that one of the toughest jobs in property is being a Property Manager. It’s a bit like being a goal keeper in soccer. When everything is going well nobody notices you are there but when things go wrong you are suddenly in the spotlight and under intense pressure to perform. And just like a goalie in soccer, ....
