Mary Valley Property Sales – Contact Bambling Rural as Your Preferred Local Agent

Filed under: General News — admin @ 8:30 am

10 new properties in the Mary Valley are being released to the market in June as part of the Qld Governments Sales program for the Mary Valley.  Bambling Rural are working in conjunction with the Brisbane based property group, Oliver Hume to provide expert local knowledge to interested buyers looking to invest in the Valley.

As part of the campaign, interested buyers will be asked to contact their preferred local agent for information on each of the properties, arrange inspections and submit expressions of interest through their preferred local agent to purchase.  The 10 new properties will be released to the market for a short 3 week campaign period with expressions of interest from buyers closing at the end of the 3 weeks.

Bambling Rural was one of 6 local agents who submitted a tender to the government to manage the open market sales in the Mary Valley.  The Qld government awarded the contract to Brisbane based property group, Oliver Hume on the proviso the group work in conjunction with local real estate agents.

John Bambling of Bambling Rural said ‘Whilst we did not agree with decision to award the contract to a Brisbane based company, we are passionate about being involved in the Mary Valley sales program to provide local knowledge and represent our clients interests as best as we can to offset any adverse effect on our local property market.’

John said ‘We cannot put our heads in the sand.  The government intends to sell the property in the Valley and we want to work with the government to ensure our clients and local community are protected from an influx of property on the market affecting values across the board. ‘

‘To date  government representatives and local member David Gibson have been listening to our concerns and have promised they will work with local agents, listen to feedback in relation to the volume of properties released to the market at any given time and ensure that properties will not be ‘given away’ for rock bottom prices.’

Bambling Rural will provide advice on the most up to date sales information on properties sold at auction and on the open market to interested buyers and clients so that everyone is fully informed on the Mary Valley sales program.

For more information about properties sold,  currently on the market and upcoming new releases contact John Bambing on 0418 715 165 or Amanda Bambling on 5482 3666.

Bambling Rural Celebrates 1st Birthday 15 April 2011 and Successful Year Selling Gympie Real Estate

Filed under: General News — admin @ 2:40 am

 

After a successful first12 months of trading, Gympie Real Estate Agents John and Amanda Bambling celebrated the first birthday of Bambling Rural gympierealestate.com.au with chocolate cake and a cup of tea at their real estate agency office located on Bruce Highway, Gympie.  Balloons, signs, and lots of chocolate marked the milestone for John and Amanda Bambling, their 3 children David, Elizabeth and Sally, dedicated staff members Mike Ostwald and Melinda Meerman as well as clients and friends who dropped in during the day.

Reflecting on the past 12 months in business for Bambling Rural, John said ‘we are very pleased with how far we have come this year given the challenging market and world economic climate of recent times.’  He said ‘Although there have been some slow times, we still have sold over $20.4 million in property over the last year, which to me indicates that contrary to the negativity in the media and on the street, there are still buyers out there for sellers who are prepared to meet the market.’

John went on to say ‘In my experience I have seen that buyers become sellers and sellers become buyers eventually. He said’ I believe the secret to succeeding in a slower market is knowing who is buying and where their circumstances are at any given point. 

He said ‘This is the advantage of being in the industry for long enough to know where the buyers are and what type of property interests them.  Another advantage is intimate knowledge of the properties and the history of the area which comes from years of experience buying and selling real estate in the Gympie Region and being able to draw on years of repeat business and loyalty from former clients and associates.’

Analysis of Sales statistics released by Bambling Rural and gympierealestate.com.au show that in the last 12 months the properties sold reveal a market where families are downsizing to reduce commitments, investors are taking advantage of lower prices and better returns and the lifestyle market starting to move again taking advantage of  lower property prices and value for money compared with Coastal or Brisbane markets.  A Summary of Bambling Rural and gympierealestate.com.au’s sales statistics and demographics shows:

Top 4 Reasons for Selling

Downsizing to reduce commitments – 50%
Relocating Health and Lifestyle –  23%
Expanding Business Investments –  18%
Upsizing current home/lifestyle –  9%

Top 4 Reasons for Buying

Small acreage Investors from Coast and Brisbane – 30%
Expanding farm and business investment – 30%
Larger acreage for better farming returns – 20%
Relocating Health and lifestyle upsizing and downsizing – 20%
   

In addition to these demographic factors, Bambling Rural and gympierealestate.com.au sales statistics show where the buyers for the last 12 months have been found:

Top 5 Sources for buyers

Agent Personal contacts/referral – 45.8%
Websites/internet –  25.2%
Qld Country Life – 12.5%
Signs –  8.3%
Walk ins Highway position  –  8.2%

John Bambling commented ‘Our sales statistics highlight an important message that is often lost when it comes to choosing an agent to market your property.  Number one is experience and knowledge your agent has of the people and the area and number two is a dominant online presence when it comes to sourcing the right buyer for your property.’

John and Mike went on to say ‘Often times it is the offer of free advertising cited as reason for choosing one agent over another. We believe, there is a lot more to it as can be seen, the majority of our sales result from personal contacts and referral, our website and online presence.  The remainder of buyers being sourced through the Qld Country Life, signs on properties and Walk-ins from Bruce Highway. ‘

John and Mike agreed that ‘The same goes for open versus exclusive listings.  Everybody in the industry knows an open listing may generate more enquiry, however, does not necessarily translate to a sale or a better price.  Time, attention and motivation in a competitive market makes sure that exclusive listings get exclusive attention.  Our own sales statistics supports this showing that exclusive listings represented 64% of the value of our sales for the last year.

Registered Trademark gympierealestate.com.au

Filed under: General News — admin @ 3:00 am

Registered Trademark gympierealestate.com.au
March Makeover – Bringing More Gympie Real Estate Buyers and Sellers Together Online

Gympie Real Estate Agents, John and Amanda Bambling, owners of Bambling Rural and gympierealestate.com.au in Gympie have recently revamped their unique trademarked gympierealestate.com.au online real estate agency with a new modern look to complement their Gympie rural real estate business Bambling Rural.

gympierealestate.com.au has been trading on line and in Gympie since 2000 being a well known real estate agency specialising in residential and commercial property in the Gympie Region. Amanda and John Bambling in 2010 purchased the business, business name and website as a valuable asset to their other real estate agency Bambling Rural, specialising in selling farms and rural properties in the Gympie Region.

John said ‘We thought it was time for a makeover of gympierealestate.com.au and to let people know that Yes, in addition to our successful rural real estate business Bambling Rural, we also have a residential and commercial arm to our business. By revamping the gympierealestate.com.au logo and bringing it to the fore, we aim to ramp up this side of the business’.

Amanda went on to say ‘Gympierealestate.com.au is a simple and unique brand which is very effective when used in all aspects of marketing residential and commercial property in Gympie, particularly because it is easy to remember and it stands out. This is what is needed if homes are to stand out from the crowd in this very competitive residential market at the moment.’

John and Amanda believe that the success of gympierealestate.com.au is due to its consistently prominent and leading position on the internet and via google search results for people looking for Gympie Real Estate online.

Amanda said ‘The internet is used by approximately 80% of people searching for real estate in the Gympie Region and accounts for approximately 65% of our enquiry for properties sold to buyers outside of the Gympie area.‘

Amanda went on to say ‘The remaining enquiry and sales come from other sources such as personal referrals, our prominent highway position and our signs which attract attention when placed strategically on properties for sale.’

‘However, we believe our trademark gympierealestate.com.au website is by far the single most effective marketing tool for our vendors to advertise their properties on the internet, when it comes to what works and value for money.’ Amanda said.

For the first time offered in Gympie, John and Amanda Bambling have also decided to extend the use of gympierealestate.com.au trademark website to others who want to sell their property privately without an agent. For a small monthly fee of $35 private sellers can list and advertise their property on gympierealestate.com.au to access the huge benefits of advertising online.’

John Bambling said ‘Although most people recognise the benefit of engaging experienced real estate agents to sell their property, there are people who prefer to do it themselves and gympierealestate.com.au gives those people access to a much larger pool of buyers.’

John went on to say, ‘Of course, for our valued clients who engage Bambling Rural and gympierealestate.com.au as real estate agents, advertising their property via our trademark website is free and part of our overall service in marketing their property effectively’.

For more information on listing, advertising and selling Gympie real estate with gympierealestate.com.au contact Bambling Rural and gympierealestate.com.au on 07 5482 3666, via email on info@gympierealestate.com.au , visit our website on www.gympierealestate.com.au, or drop in to see us on Bruce Highway, Gympie (next to pizza hut).

Good News for Gympie Real Estate Market Starting to Move

Filed under: General News — admin @ 5:27 am

There are good signs that the Gympie Real Estate market is starting to move with Bambling Rural gympierealestate.com.au reporting an increase in sales at the top and bottom end of the market in recent months, with properties priced from around $350,000 to $900,000 remaining steady.  The good news is there are definitely signs of a brighter outlook for the new year.  

Since starting business in April 2010 Bambling Rural gympierealestate.com.au has sold $18.1 million of properties in the Gympie region.  These properties have mostly been small vacant acreage blocks up to $265,000 and large rural farms and properties over $900,000.  

John Bambling said “The types of properties that buyers are looking at are the cheaper priced lifestyle blocks to build their own home, or long term investment opportunities in the larger rural properties with the major attraction being so close to the coast and to Brisbane.”  

When asked about the long term outlook of the Gympie Real Estate market, John went on to say “Real Estate in the Gympie Region will always be an attractive investment being so relatively cheap when compared with other regions nearby such as Cooroy, Maleny and Buderim.  These towns are really so close to Gympie, yet Gympie still is the best value and best kept secret of the southeast.”  

John said “The market has certainly slowed in recent times, however, once all of the bad news is out the way, I am confident things will start to improve.  You only have to look at the housing shortage in Qld and the number of people moving to Queensland from other states as well as Governments printing money all over the western world.” 

Mike Ostwald agreed saying ‘This must increase the value of land because you might be able to print more money but you can’t make more land. Every time governments start printing money two things go up, the price of gold and the price of land.  I would encourage buyers now is an excellent time to buy to maximise value for the dollar particularly in these uncertain times.” 

John and Mike also would like to say a big thank you and happy Christmas to all of their loyal clients – “it is because of these people that we are able to do what we do at Bambling Rural gympierealestate.com.au”. 

The office on the Bruce Highway will be shut from Saturday 25th December through to Tuesday 4 January 2011, however, John and Mike will be available for inspections over that period by prior appointment. Please do not hesitate to call John on 0418 715 165 or Mike on 0429 008 491 for all enquiries over the holiday period. 

Best wishes from all of us for a safe and fun festive season from John, Mike, Amanda, Melinda and Melissa.

Sizzling Sausages & Sumptuous Sandwiches to Raise $1,653 for Brainchild Foundation

Filed under: General News — admin @ 12:07 am

In the pouring rain with only the truly dedicated farmers and bargain hunters attending a recent clearing sale at Glen Echo, Bambling Rural gympierealestate.com.au raised a total of $1,653 for the Brainchild Foundation by running a sausage sizzle and canteen. 

The Brainchild Foundation is a charitable organisation established in 2010 by a group of medical professionals, dedicated parents and friends of children who are affected by brain and spinal cord tumours.  The clearing sale was held by Bambling Rural gympierealestate.com.au in conjunction with Sullivan’s Livestock and Rural Services and was attended by approximately 250 people.  Over $125,000 worth of farm machinery was sold on the day to both local farmers and others who had travelled as far as Yarraman to attend. 

Click on thumbnail for larger image.

The canteen for the sale was organised by Amanda Bambling of Bambling Rural gympierealestate.com.au specifically to raise funds for the Brainchild Foundation providing a sausage sizzle, sandwiches, cake and drinks for those attending the sale. 

Amanda and John Bambling of Bambling Rural recently made the decision to sponsor Brainchild Foundation as their charity of choice and to help with raising awareness and fundraising activities in their local community to help beat childhood brain tumours and to ensure better tomorrows for affected children.   

Amanda Bambling said ‘After much research, it became clear that the Brainchild Foundation was the only organisation in Australia that specifically raises funds for research into causes and treatments of childhood brain tumours as well as providing support to affected children and their families’.  

‘Brainchild provides a much needed resource for families to go to for financial assistance while their child is in hospital as well as providing scholarships for tutors to assist children with any learning difficulties resulting from treatment for their tumours.’ 

Amanda went on to say ‘We have a wonderful community here in Gympie and the surrounding districts, made clear by the overwhelming generosity towards our fundraiser which included an effort to fill a giant whisky bottle with small change.

We couldn’t believe how many people put notes instead of change in the bottle in support of Brainchild, and we thank all of those people who donated so generously.’ She also said ‘For all of those people wondering how we were going to get the notes out of the bottle without breaking it, we found a wire coat hanger did the trick!’ 

‘We would also like to thank those very special people of our community who volunteered their time to help for such a good cause without whom it all would not happen.  A big thank you to the star helpers, Sonia Lynch, Kellie Nalder, Melinda Meerman, Melissa Payne, Tom Bambling, Edward Bambling and Neil Sharpe who served the hungry crowd with sausages and sandwiches regardless of the wind and rain.  A big thank you also to Geoff Buckley Butcher, Stewart Terrace Gympie for donating 100 delicious beef sausages for the day. ‘ 

‘In total we raised $1,653 which included proceeds from the canteen, fill the bottle donations and proceeds donated from a tractor slasher and a solar hot water system sold at the clearing sale, which Bambling Rural has forwarded to the Brainchild Foundation.’Amanda said.
