Although there are still a few days left for November it is pleasing to see that the total of new enquiries for November have exceeded both September and October. It was a challenging month, with a slow start due to the Melbourne Cup Long weekend and the Victorian State Election in the latter part of the month. It would appear from these numbers that the end of year ‘rush’ has surpassed the brakes applied by the State Election. It would have been interesting to see what the final numbers would have been for November if we did not have the state election.
As a result of these external factors experienced in November, we expect that new enquiries will continue to flow later into December than usual. During the week of Christmas, enquiries will al but disappear only to launch again in the second week of January when we experience the the ‘return to work’ syndrome.
