Emma Slape, REISA general manager Training and Communication, bursts some bubbles including the regularly inflated accusation of the imminent bursting of the alleged Australia property bubble, in Episode 83 of Toop TV (

“The regular predictions of the Australia housing bubble are greatly inflated,” observes Emma, who also points out the inaccuracy of a recent media report that listed Adelaide’s weekend auction clearance at a depressing 15%.

“A bit of digging unearthed the accurate clearance rate on that particular week-end was 42%,” revealed Emma who underscored her revelation with the observation that “long and short term trends point to property prices in SA being remarkably stable.”

Contributing to the current “craziness” in the SA property market was, according to Emma, the reality of home overstock, the near evaporation of first home buyers following the pull-back of the first home buyers scheme and the fact lenders have tightened their criteria.

Bringing a warm glow to a decidedly cool winter was the initiative of Lew Toop and his team of encouraging people who are moving house to donate any unwanted blankets to those who have no home. Called Blankets on the Move, the initiative has already secured several hundred blankets to help being homeless in winter just that little less uncomfortable.
