Propertylink has sold its 320 Pitt Street, Sydney, assets for $275 million, which has helped to bump office sales across the country over the $14 billion level as investors take advantage of the favourable leasing conditions.
According to CBRE's head of research Stephen McNab, in the 12 months to the end of the first quarter, across national office, industrial and retail markets, sales totalled $28.2 billion.

When the market gets difficult as it is currently it makes you step back and re-assess. Whilst you can do all of the objective commercial assessment in the world, key drivers are ultimately emotional and psychological. Fundamentally it is your "why" that governs your "how". The strength of these emotional and psychological drivers is what gives you the ware withal and grit to know when to hold, fold, walk away or run.
A few years ago I watched an ESPN documentary on NBA and NFL players and this phenomenon how when their careers are up after their moment in the sun, most, 60% and 78% respectively, end up financially destitute. When you think about the fact that most of these professional athletes earn more in just a year of their career than what most of us will earn via our working jobs in a lifetime, yet end up with nothing, it is really a really interesting phenomenon. On the other hand, there is the story of the UPS worker who never earned more than $14,000 a year and invested consistently, amassing a fortune of $70 million over his lifetime, $36m of which he donated to education-based charities to support young people getting a quality education.
