Well another year is just about done and what a year! We are all well and truly looking forward to the Christmas break. Strong sales in H+L packages and other projects has kept us under the pump and 2018 doesn’t look like its going to be much different. We are currently working on numerous projects that will keep us busy until 2019-20. These include projects in the North and South West of Sydney with various Developers. Establishing an excellent working relationship with developers is key to this business and we are lucky we have exactly that with companys like Lendlease, Crownland Developments and Vantage Property to name a few. We have also been working with Blue CHP on projects in Ropes Crossing.
What 2018 will bring is anyone’s guess. Whilst we have seen a cooling of the market in the last 3-4 months its not something we are really concerned about as we experienced this at the back end of 2016 and then came back with one of our strongest quarters ever in 2017….all amidst the doom and gloom forecast by the media. Go figure. Interest rates look like they will hold out for sometime yet and infrastructure in the North and South West is coming along well with the South West Rail Link up and running and the North West link on track for 2019. So we do expect to see a slight slow down in the market but not the massive crash that our beloved media keeps harping on about. I remember the same scare mongering tactics were being voiced by them back in 2014. 3 years later the market is even stronger. I guess its not good news unless its bad news for them. Rant over:)
So all in all we are looking forward to another big year, especially in construction where a lot of the developments are finally registered and we can now get on site. Much to the relief of our very patient clients…..most of them:) On that point I would like to thank all our clients who appreciate we have been working towards getting everything ready for submission to Council/CDC for when registration occurs. Believe me we are as keen as you to get homes into construction because, and I’ll be blunt about this, we want to get paid.lol
If I don’t get chance to say this before the end of the year. All of us at Jandson hope you have a great Christmas and I look forward to bringing you more content in the new year.
