After a promising start to September, it was disappointing to see the number of enquiries drop off in the final weeks. It is not unreasonable to suggest that the final numbers were impacted by school holidays, long weekends and the grand final. These numbers are based on new enquiries only, however the general vibe around the office is that activity is up and there is action around from serious prospects.
When comparing to this time last year, we see this period was also affected by these external influences. Upon reflection, September this year is only marginally down. We are confident, and remain positive, that we will see growth in October.
