2011 Christmas to July 2013

Thredbo Real Estate Sales Activity in the market lifts as interest rates fall, and Sydney investment real estate prices improve. However potential purchasers are being 'sensible' and they want to see sharp prices and reasonable yields. Potentially therefore the market may see further flat-line pricing in Snowy Mountains Holiday properties. 

It's been a tough start to this 2013 ski season, but finally the snow came and we look forward to a great second half of the season. Conditions are in line with this season's long term forecast. 

2011 Spring

The season is almost over, our holiday properties continue to rent well; don't listen to the doomsayers blaming every one but themselves for a slow down this season. If you have well located and presented properties then we can help you achieve excellent rental results.

2011 - July

Now we are in the middle of winter and school holidays are almost over - the best snow conditions at this time since 1990 are reported. Certainly our own ski experience in the past few weeks bears out this claim. The highlights of this year include the sale of the iconic Marritz Alpine Inn in Perisher Valley for a record price of $3.1 million, to keep our sales record as the only agent to successfully sell Perisher property. The sales market is quite difficult, yet we are managing to achieve satisfactory results for our vendors who require expedient action. The management business continues strongly as we focus on delivering top quality management services concentrating on up-to-date maintenance of the properties and a successful advertising programme through google ad-words. We continually strive to update our skills and have attended several training sessions with our internet coach in Sydney. The benefits of this programme are under-lined by the growth in properties under management to over 40 separate apartments, houses and townhouses in Jindabyne, along the Alpine Way and in Thredbo. 


Now coming up to Christmas, and having completed three and a half years of operation, Forbes Stynes Real Estate continues to strengthen its position as the premier Snowy Mountains Real Estate Agent with 100% of the Perisher and Lake Crackenback deals and over 75% of Thredbo transactions done by agents. Our Property Management division marketing through Accommodation Jindabyne and Thredbo Ski Accommodation is growing organically by taking on high quality properties and presenting them positively through the latest technology using the web and virtual tours. Although the real estate market continues to labour, particularly in the holiday property sector, we have shown that if a property is well priced it will sell within a reasonable amount of time. And again this outlines the key for real estate sales anywhere - employ an agent who has their finger on the pulse of the market and who sells the most property in that area.


This year being the second year of operation for Forbes Stynes Real Estate resulted in over 39 sales all over the Snowy Mountains including Thredbo, Perisher, Lake Crackenback and Jindabyne. Our clients find Lake Crackenback offers great value outside of the Kosciusko National Park. In the last few years the local ski racers and public have found Harro's Ski shop at Lake Crackenback to be friendly, helpful and professional. Lots of new building has been undertaken at Lake Crackenback.
