Welcome to the 2nd edition of The Camden Haven’s Premier Property Market Report. Over the six months (May 2013-October 2013) we have seen the Camden Haven shift from a buyers’ market to favouring the seller. When the National Australia Bank released its third quarter Australian Residential Property Survey, it confirmed what many would deem self-evident – that demand for both new and established properties has lifted nationwide. Confidence in regional housing markets strengthened, encouraging metro homeowners contemplating lifestyle and ‘tree changes’ that conditions are prime to maximise their sale and to finally make that big move. Sydney and Melbourne property markets typically influence national sentiment so it’s no surprise regional markets are benefitting. Both have seen the second largest gains in sentiment since the NAB survey began. As baby boomers begin their ascent into retirement, many are buying their future retirement home now, investing for the short term on the rental market until they’re ready to down tools and cash in their super. The latest RP Data – Nine Rewards Market Sentiment Report shows 3 out of 4 respondents in regional NSW feel now is a good time to buy. In winter 2013, the Camden Haven market saw more residential sales than any other winter that I can remember. An interesting statistic from our office sales for 2013 is that local buyers have been very strong in the market with 43% of our buyers living within a 30 kilometre radius of the Camden Haven area.

buyers made up 21% while interstate buyers rounded out our top 3 with 18.5%. As I look into my crystal ball, I see only positive signs ahead for 2014. So, if you are thinking of moving in the next 6-12 months, please give us a call and we’ll show you how the team at First National North Haven can make a difference.

All comparative data for Location has been sourced from RP Data. It includes residential property sales in the Camden Haven Region encompassing Bonny Hills, North Haven, Laurieton, Dunbogan, Camden Head, West Haven and Lakewood.

Unit/Villa/ Townhouse

As the number of homes on the market decreases and buyer demand increases, our office has found that the average days on market for residential homes has almost halved. In 2014 we expect the average days on market for a well priced home to be less than 30 days. The chart toppers for the six month period by location were:

“We would like to pass on our sincerest thanks for the service you have provided throughout the sale of our house in Bonny Hills. It is refreshing and reassuring to be dealing with an agent that values the importance of communication and service. This is now the third time our family has used you personally in the sale of our properties and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to any prospective vendor.Thanks again for your hard work and dedication.” Troy & Elissa Baker (Sep 2013)

“I would like to thank you for all your assistance you gave me with selling my home. We have lived in our home for the past 20 years and the thought of selling was quite daunting. Together with my son, we interviewed 4 agents and found that even though you were not the cheapest, you definitely turned out to be the best. Every step of the way was explained to me, sometimes by a phone call and a visit, right from the start. I always knew what was happening and your contact with me was second to none, even when you really had nothing to tell me! I was ecstatic with the result and it exceeded my expectations and some of the other agents we interviewed as well. You really went beyond the call of duty in helping me.Thank you once again from both myself and my family. They are all pleased that I can now move much closer to them in such a short time.” Elva Cousins (Oct 2013)

“... Although we are the purchasers and you are acting for the vendors, all our dealings with the First National team have been nothing but personable, helpful, professional, timely and straight forward and, as first time buyers, I can assure you we have been grateful not only for the help and advice we have received but for the friendly way it has been delivered.” Terry & Gaille Jessop (Apr 2013) “Just wanting to let you know how impressed we are with you finding tenants for our rental property. Everything was done so quickly from the advertising, open house and processing of applications and we are extremely grateful for this. Your phone calls regarding the applicants were very thorough and made the decision very easy for us. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. We are pleased with your services in managing our property. We were blown away with how quickly you responded to our needs. You have provided us with a high level of communication and follow up throughout the process. You have earned a flawless reputation by your amazing work ethic. We would recommend you to anyone without reservations. Thank you again for such a great service.” Jess & Kim Ciampa (May 2013)
