THE Melbourne Cup Weekend traditionally signals the start to the hectic season for coastal real estate agents but there were plenty of people getting a jump start on their house hunting efforts last weekend especially with the weather already taking on an early summer feel.
A great way to get your foot in the door, without obligation, is to chase down some of the ‘open for inspection’ opportunities which are an ideal way to gauge the strength of the market and what’s on offer while pumping the local agents for information.
At all of the local seaside resorts, there’ll be a wide selection of properties open for inspection and if you intersperse it with some stops at some of a plethora of garage sales, while stopping for coffee and lunch along the way, it can make for a very interesting, possibly even rewarding day.
Here’s a couple on the surf beach side of Inverloch that were open for inspection last weekend and are still on the market:
Unit 4/41-43 Veronica Street, Inverloch:
This marvellous villa is located in a highly sought after location close to the surf beach, yet being close to town.
The level access home is within a complex of four and is ideal for retirees or a base for holidays.
It would also prove as a wise investment. The low maintenance home sits in a very generous allotment and provides that extra spaces for the gardener or for children to play.
