Read on for some expert insights into the state of the market from Steve Gagel, Partner of Business Services at leading Accountant HLB Mann Judd:

Significantly, this tender was the first since November 2006 to clear all pools in all regions. Back in November 2006, the authority average values per region were $283,293 for Southeast, $164,929 for Coastal and $74,966 for Western. I was a little surprised there was not any growth in both the South East and Coastal Regions – but expect values to march upward from here. If you follow the trend in the Western Region, it has shown growth of 78% in that market from when it was last oversupplied (March 2012). 

With the fall in the dollar and the election to settle down the domestic economy, I feel that the hospitality industry is about to go through another resurgence, albeit slow and patchy in the next short while.
