Unfortunately, for the final week of March, we had received lower numbers in new enquiries than expected. Although there are two more days left for March (taken on 29th), final numbers will be slightly down compared to the same month in 2017. With the school holidays upon us, we do believe that April will start a little slowly before picking up later in the month. The Roy Morgan consumer... more
We are very pleased with the performance of new enquiries for March thus far, especially given that we have already had one long weekend, and due for another next weekend. Statistically March generally is a poor month due to the labour day long weekend and the Easter Break, although 2017 was not too bad. What is most pleasing is that if you compare to the previous March, we have already... more
After a disappointing start to February it is re-assuring to see that the enquiry numbers have picked up quite dramatically in the later part of the month. We believe this is mainly a result of an increase in the number of new businesses on our books, and people settling back into their 'normal' routines.
The trend is positive so we expect March to start well, however we have concerns about... more
In terms of new enquiry numbers February is off to a slower start than we would have liked, and is well down on February of the previous year. So far 2018 has been more challenging that we predicted which may be a result of a softening business sale market. We still have hopes of working on building the second half of February, to stimulate more enquiry. We also believe the lower than... more
As mentioned in our previous report, the total number of new enquiries for January were down on 2017. This is a result of having fewer businesses for sale after selling many of our businesses in the later part of 2017. On the flip side we have listed quite a lot of new businesses this month. Combine the number of new listings with the fact that at about this time in the new year, most... more
We hope you had a great Christmas and New Year and enjoyed a good break. We are back in action and already the amount of new leads are about to heat up. Usually the first few weeks off January start of fairly slowly only to pick up once everyone gets back to their normal everyday routines. It's then that we see a lot of new enquirers who want a 'change' a new business with a new way of life... more
We were very pleased to see an upswing in new enquiries for the start of December. As of the 14th of December the number of new enquries had exceeded half the total of the new enquiries for November, this is really encouraging as we look forward to 2018.
Looking forward we do expect that enquiries will drop off from this week and remain low until approximately the second week of January. ... more
As indicated in our last report we are currently in our end of year rush which is evident in the graph. We still have a few more days for November (graph as of the 29th of November) so naturally we believe that Novembers final numbers will be slightly higher, but not quite at the levels we experienced in August this year. The back half of 2017 has been a little disappointing in terms of... more
