WELCOME The first quarter in every year is a time for optimism and personal mobility. Families move into a suburb often to attend good schools. Companies transfer personnel at this time. Overseas migrants often move at the start of the school year. Sales and rental figures always show good indications in the first quarter. That, combined with stable interest rates, a restoring confidence level and lower rental vacancy rates, all contribute to confidence for buyers and investors. There is consistent reports that Perth has come from the darkness and into the light. Sales numbers are strong and will recover in 2018. Homes are faring better than units with studies showing that the house market has bottomed and moving up. Units may still have a little way to go to bottom out in certain areas and product type.
Developers are looking again at smaller development sites. We are seeing strong interest in the Canning Bridge Precinct with exciting new projects coming on line. In the retirement area, it was great to see Southcare get permission to build a new aged-care project in Manning too which will generate strong interest. As always, if you are thinking of buying or selling or would like a current market appraisal, please call me on 0405 709 763.
