After a positive start in terms for enquiries for April it has dropped off in the later part of the month.  At the time of writing this report I’m lost for explanation as to the drop in the enquiries for late April, keep in mind we are only in the second day of week 18.  On a positive note when totalling the number of enquiries, whilst April is down on March it is still higher than February... more

Whilst it would appear that the Easter/School holidays did put the brakes on the level of enquiries, however you can see from the graphs below that the number of enquiries for the month of March is ahead of both January and February of this year.  Evidence of the Easter/School Holiday affect are illustrated in the second graph were enquiries are down for late March early April. The second graph... more

Within the next few short weeks I expect to see the level of enquiries on businesses slowing down until we get through the Easter period. The graph below shows firstly January, February and March enquiry levels for 2012, then November 2012 through to March 2013.  The graph illustrates March 2013 has seen a higher level of enquiries than February 2013 and slightly higher than January 2013. ... more

I was suitably surprised when I saw the statistics/graph below.  I was half expecting to write a report on how the long weekend and the news of Victoria in a recession for the last quarter of 2012 may have limited the number of enquiries for the month of March.  However halfway through March we are already on par with total enquiries with February and more than halfway past January.  I do... more

  Surprisingly the amount of enquiries we have received for February is slightly lower than the number we experienced in January. Please keep in mind the figures from January are a little skewed due to the fact leads from the Xmas break are included in January figures, ie a lead on the 25th of December will be recorded as a January enquiry. However, you can still see that the number of... more

In general, enquiries are still very strong and as we’re part way through February, we are looking at matching, if not improving on the number of enquiries received for the month of January 2013. It has been very pleasing seeing a high amount of offers being made on businesses this month, a positive sign indeed! In some cases we have seen two parties competing for the same business which is... more

We’ll let the graphs do the talking in this report. You can see from the first graph the spike in the number of Confidentiality Agreements signed by prospective buyers in the later part of January (note we were closed for the first two weeks of January).  The second graph records the amount of activity in our office, the increase in enquiries and ‘work’ involved with business... more

I hope you enjoyed a well-deserved break over the Christmas and New Year period.  Our office is back and ready for what I believe will be a far better year in terms of business sales. As we only re-opened our office yesterday, we do not have available a graph of stats to show you but there are positive signs in the amount of general enquiries about business sales. In 2013 you will see a... more
