Barry Plant group bucks the slow sales trend

Barry Plant Group chief executive Mike McCarthy had to check the June sales figures twice to make sure he was seeing correctly. While many other Melbourne agents were reporting a slow month, the Barry Plant group posted 102 more sales than in June of 2011 - an increase of 15.9 per cent. Ten of the 80-plus Barry Plant offices reported a record month. Mr McCarthy said it was clear the real estate market was still very active in Melbourne's south-eastern and north-western growth corridors. "We have made more sales in the first half of 2012 than we did for the corresponding period in 2011, which is a great result in a challenging market. We also had a 7.9 per cent increase in the total value of properties sold over June 2011, so from those figures alone, as far as we're concerned, the market is quite buoyant".
