As predicted in our last report the long weekend caused a slow down in total numbers for the month of April. However the numbers were lower that we predicted and we believe one of the main causes for this slow down would have been talk surrounding the Budget and the Federal election. History shows us that when these types of issues are discussed widely in the media it does effect the number... more
It was very pleasing to view the stats for April so far show momentum from business buyers has picked up again after the Easter Break. It would appear the numbers suggest that we may exceed total enquires for February, however with another long weekend in April we believe this will slow down enquiries at the end of the month and thus may fall short of the total numbers received for... more
We trust that you had a great Easter Break and indulged in some quality family time and chocolate.

It appears we were too cautious in our prediction as you will note from the graph below the total enquiries for February well surpassed January. Further more February 2016 numbers were only exceeded by two months in 2015 and with a few more days left of February it is... more
You only need to take one quick look at the graph below and compare it to January 2015 and you will understand why we are pleased with the results. Numbers for January have slowed towards the end of the month, however this was expected as it is usually the case around long weekends such as Australia Day.

I hope you had a great new year break and are looking forward to an exciting year in business sales.... Okay let's be honest business sales is not exciting stuff, however what we are expecting is far more businesses to change hands in 2016, compared to other recent years.
