Fighting Back from School holidays

The graph below does not look too pleasing for this month however the total number of enquiries for October is still lagging from the slow start we had due to the school holidays.  The current trend for October is on the upward climb, therefore we do expect October to finish with similar numbers to that of September.  Moving forward November usually starts shaky due to the Melbourne Cup weekend... more

School Holiday Killer

Whilst we are all enjoying the warmer weather and the longer days we have experience recently, it appears that new prospective buyers have been outside enjoying the weather school holiday period too.  You can see from the graph (broken up week by week) that September was tracking well until the last week, followed by a slow start to October.  We weren't expecting September to exceed the... more

September Builds

September results thus far have been good, but not as strong as we would have liked.  Whilst it is a very good improvement on the volume of enquiries received leading up to August, we had hoped that the number of new enquiries for September would be higher. It is important to note, that the graph below only refers to 'new' prospects, ie they have not made contact with our company before. ... more

August has won the fight!

August has won the fight!
We are very pleased to see that August has come through and finished strongly after a very slow start.  We did not expect  the number of enquiries to be this strong in the final weeks, this has left August as one of the most successful months this year.  It is almost impossible to predict what has been the main causes for an upswing, however there are good arguments surrounding the fact that... more


The graphs of our enquiries taken from the 11th of May do not show a pretty picture.  Consider what has occurred in of late, with an April full of holidays and a May overtaken by Federal Budget conjecture, it is not hard to understand the poor results from the recent weeks. The positive news is that even though we are only 10 days in to May, we have already surpassed the halfway number of the... more


We were quite disappointed when we reviewed the stats for April thus far.  After such a strong start to 2017 the last few months have seen a decline in enquiries on business sales. April has been particularly disappointing given that we thought the second half will make up for the slow start to the month.  School holidays, Easter and the ANZAC long weekend certainly are not ideal conditions... more


Whilst the graph below doesn’t paint a pretty picture it is not all bad news.  By comparison to the same date in March, April’s numbers are higher.  Not to mention that school holidays and the long weekend would have had a negative impact on the number of potential business buyers making contact in regards to businesses for sale. As a result we do believe that we may experience an end... more


After a disappointing start to March numbers, it is reassuring to see that despite having a few more days left in the month that the enquiry levels for the second half of March have improved a great deal from earlier in the month.  Interestingly this is in conflict with consumer confidence levels.  Roy Morgan consumer confidence still remains at good levels however has taken a ‘dip’ in... more
