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 0401 076 690.

“From the start Andrew was straight up with us where the market is at. With Andrew local knowledge and experience, he was right on the mark with the pricing. The house was sold in weeks, not months as you see on the market.”
Andrew was fantastic helping in all areas getting the house ready for the market, organizing and attending the fixes that was required and mediating between both owners. Andrew would also advise how the market was going, giving his input for a good sale. Thanks again. Andrew!
“I chose Andrew Peterson because he has a long track record of selling property in Victoria Park Perth. I found him trustworthy, thorough and has excellent communication skills. He gave realistic assessment at all times so my home sold relatively quickly compared to others in my neighbourhood who have been given pie in the sky appraisals. I recommend Andrew to sell your home.” Brone
“Highly recommend Andrew as an agent who does what he says, knows his craft and we benefited from his advice. A knowledgable and experienced agent, who achieved a successful sale in difficult times.”
