Auction numbers are set to pick up in next couple of weeks

first_imgAuction numbers are set to pick up according to Haesley Cush.SATURDAYS will be a little quieter on Brisbane’s footpaths with many agents and owners electing not to run their auction campaigns over Easter, school holidays and the Commonwealth Games.Ironically March was Ray White Queensland’s largest listing month on record and their auction numbers swelled in March. But many of those agents have delayed the launch until after this break.More from newsNew apartments released at idyllic retirement community Samford Grove Presented by Parks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus19 hours agoThe Gold Coast of course has seen an influx of auctions, so many of the auctioneers will be performing their street theatre for the holiday makers and international guests.It’s not uncommon for post Easter to see a drop in auction numbers, but with the games thrown in the actual number of auctions is right down.I spoke to my long term colleague and friend Phil Parker about it. Phil said “While it is a little quieter in April, May is absolutely full with both Saturdays and Sundays decorated with a lot of auctions”.The reasoning is due to the lead in time for an auction, which is usually about four weeks. So owners have either had their auction campaign and their auction called before Easter or they have waited to start advertising until after Easter. So logic explains that four weeks after the Easter break moves the auctions until May.This means the general market, buyers, will see an influx of new property listings this month. This is the combination of April sellers and those owners from March who pushed the hold button to clear.For real estate enthusiasts the next 10 weeks will now see a clear run leading in to the end of the financial year. We should see big auction numbers called in May with strong settlement numbers closing out the year.last_img read more

Reina set to join Bayern

first_img Rummenigge expanded on the club’s official website, saying: “The player will come to Munich in the next few days for a medical exam and to sign his contract.” Reina served as Liverpool’s number one for eight seasons following his signing from Villarreal in 2005, but the arrival of Simon Mignolet last summer saw him reunited with former Reds boss Rafael Benitez in Italy. Benitez was known to be interested in signing the Spain international on a permanent deal, but Napoli refused to meet the £3.95million release clause in his contract and Reina travelled to the United States for Liverpool’s pre-season tour following the World Cup. He will now make a fresh start in Germany, although the 31-year-old is likely to find it more difficult to get first-team football in Munich than he did on Merseyside, with Germany keeper Manuel Neuer firmly established between the sticks at the Allianz Arena. Reina came through the ranks at Barcelona but could never fully establish himself at the Nou Camp and moved to the Yellow Submarine in 2002, spending three seasons with the club before his move to the Premier League. While at Anfield, Reina won the FA Cup, League Cup and European Super Cup and added the Coppa Italia to his list of medals in Naples last season. Rummenigge added: “Pepe Reina was eager to come to Bayern Munich. “He wanted to embark on this adventure even though he knows that, in Manuel Neuer, he has a keeper in front of him who, if nothing changes, will always remain the number one.” As well as adding to his defensive ranks, Bayern boss Pep Guardiola also seems keen to keep hold of the players he has and on Tuesday dismissed reports linking central defender Jerome Boateng with Barcelona. Press Association Bayern Munich have agreed a deal to sign Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina, the Bundesliga champions have announced.center_img The Spaniard has fallen out of favour at Anfield under Brendan Rodgers and spent last season on loan at Napoli, but is now set to move to Germany on a permanent deal, with Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirming a deal had been agreed. “Goalkeeper Pepe #Reina (@PReina25) set for move from @LFC to #FCBayern. #Rummenigge confirms agreement.
