Last weeks wrap up!

We are seeing a mix of confidence levels in buyers at this time with open house attendees a little down on past weeks. On the flip side, those that turn out are genuine buyers. We notice that follow up calls to buyers will often find they have purchased.
A great indicator in your suburb is 'sold signs'. We are still seeing sale boards with sold on them in a comfortable time frame.
Clearance rates in the major capitals are on the low end of normal (57% in Sydney and Melbourne). Interestingly this is up from the winter clearance rates of 52%.
I heard an interview with the co-ordinator of the 'Jobs Market' on ABC Illawarra this morning. This will be held this weekend at the Illawarra Hockey Stadium at Unanderra. She has nearly 80 exhibitors with 1,000's of jobs available, some local and others out of area. This must be of some comfort to those potentially losing their jobs as a result of the Bluescope announcement.
