We are really starting to get to the pointy end of 2017 and with only a few weeks left before the holiday season we are starting to see the the results of an end of season rush. The first week of November was slow due to the Melbourne Cup but as you will note from the graph below if has picked up quickly. As of the 16th of November (when this graph was taken), total number of new enquiries had well exceeded the halfway point of both September and October. We do expect this trend to continue for the remainder of November and into the first few weeks of December. Whilst it is very unlikely that any offers on businesses now will result in a settlement before the new year, purchasers do take the comfort in the fact that they can at least secure their opportunity (with and offer, acceptance and deposit) now, with something to work towards in 2018.
