Using this framework, we can now deliver beautiful, sophisticated, and totally custom WordPress driven websites for onsite managers with incredible turn-around times.

We’ve made a lot of new site enhancements this week on TheOnsiteManager.com.au that I wanted to point out to our users. Shortlist Upgrade The site has had a shortlist system for several years, but we’ve given it a full overhaul now. Every listing has a prominent shortlist link that will instantly store any listing you like the look of, in your own private shortlist. You don’t need to be logged in, you don’t even need an account, the shortlist is stored in a cookie so it will be there waiting for you any time you return to the website from the same computer, even ifRead More →

Everything we do as humans carries some form of risk. Stay in bed, grow fat and have a heart attack. Go out exercising on your bike and get hit by a bus. Eat and drink what you love and end up with high cholesterol. Watch your diet and feel miserable. It’s all about risk and more importantly a couple of key dynamics that are worth considering and they go hand in hand. The first is Risk Mitigation. We hear the term all the time, mostly when politicians or stockbrokers are talking. This is a pretty simple concept. Consider a risk and then look for thingsRead More →

If you are in the accommodation industry and have not heard of Airbnb you must have been living under a rock. The San Francisco-based home sharing juggernaut just keeps growing. It is affecting accommodation supply worldwide, but also in our little part of the planet. An indication of how quickly Airbnb has arrived is reflected in the most recent BCCM review recommendations. We received the recommendations last month to an issues paper released in December 2014. The topic of short term letting restrictions would have been a perfect addition to that options paper, but Airbnb was simply not on the radar when it was published.Read More →

Conventional wisdom in the real estate industry has always purported there are really only 2 property portals that ‘matter’: RealEstate.com.au and Domain.com.au. According to Roy Morgan, RealEstate.com.au enjoys 4.5M visitors per month, nationally, with 3.2M using Domain.com.au. Of that 3.2M Domain users, 2.2M use both Realestate.com.au and Domain.com.au. Michele Levine – CEO, Roy Morgan Research, says: “Of the one million people who access Domain and not Realestate.com.au in a four-week period, over 30% are Mid-Life Households, aged 45-65 with no children under 16 still at home. For Realestate.com.au, a similar proportion of its 2.3 million exclusive audience is Young Parents, aged under 45 and with kids. So this meansRead More →

Ok, I’ve said this every year but just to keep my 100% record intact………………..where the hell did 2016 go? Time just seems to fly doesn’t it?  It’s obviously an outcome of encroaching old age and certainly a reminder to enjoy life and not sweat the small stuff.  And let’s face it, in the overall scheme of things its nearly all small stuff. As usual I have made numerous resolutions with reduced alcohol consumption, a better diet and more exercise high on the list. I have also promised myself to appreciate the managing director more and not be such an egotistical, self-centred narcissist.  Not sure whereRead More →
