MARKET UPDATE


WELCOME MARCH QTR With everyone left distancing and staying at home one would assume that sales would have slowed considerably.

Buyers are still out buying – using virtual tours, 3D tours, Facetime and WhatsApp showings then requesting a private viewing.

Not the case.

This will probably change the way properties are searched and viewed forever.

REIWA reported on 31 March that weekly sales were 603 down from 690 the week before and up from 469 the year before. We expect sales to reduce as isolation kicks in. After the hibernation we will return to another new normal-whatever that looks like.

On another topic, there’s nothing more comforting in these times of isolation as your own home. To have loved ones under your own roof and out of harms way is very comforting.

of security & well being that comes with owning your own home. Stay safe. As always, if you are thinking of buying or selling or would like a current market appraisal, please call me on 0405 709 763.

FINANCE UPDATE BY GLEN AUSTEN - DIRECTOR - TAG FINANCIAL GROUP

.Most of us have heard enough of the “unprecedented times” that we are in, so let’s look at the positives of the financial sector and what is going on in the big wide world that we are not allowed to physically explore anymore. The Government is helping those with mortgages to maintain them by offering various stimulus options. The banks are helping by pausing (not waiving) repayments for 3 to 6 months, dropping rates, and offering loans to SME’s to help them maintain their businesses. Most importantly though, the banks are still open for business and lending money. Yes they are being a bit more cautious and ensuring that they lend to those they feel are of less risk, but they are still lending money, and lots of loan applications are still being submitted and getting approved. The world hasn’t stopped. It’s just got a really bad cold and we are all working together to shake it. In the process the savvy buyers and sellers are using this opportunity to their advantage!
