3rd Quarter 2013 The market moves up City of Casey and City of Cardinia sales have continued to show signs of the market turnaround with renewed interest from local buyers. Market-wide conditions improved as less homes on the market combined with record low interest rates started to take effect. Improving business and consumer confidence, low unemployment, low inflation and growing rental yields have seen quality properties attract 10-20 buyers through the open and multiple competing bidders trying to secure the property. Strong local, first home buyer and investor demand is currently directed toward a far depleted supply. People are sensing that the bottom has passed and interest rates are too good to ignore. Inventory experienced its 3rd consecutive quarter of decline. Available listings are 35% below the recent peaks, which is also driving prices but confidence remains the key. The GFC had a severe impact on buyers outlook; whilst there have been fantastic opportunities for some time, many have been seeking the ideal conditions preferring to wait until the market “hit the bottom�. This seems to be changing with the Westpac-Melbourne Institute Consumer Sentiment Index at or above 100 for three consecutive months after 14 out of 16 months below it. Interest rate cuts are also having a positive influence, recent rate cuts have brought the average three year fixed loan to its cheapest level in two decades. We are now seeing fixed 3 year rates at under 5%. Another sign of renewed market confidence is investors returning to property, with low interest rates, rising rents and price growth bringing them back to the market in force. Cash and term deposit rates have also been falling making property more attractive and theres continuing strong interest in purchasing via self managed super funds. Prices responded to the strong demand, limited supply, low interest rates and enduring confidence in Berwick as a safe and thriving market. Market-wide average prices increased 5% from the June quarter. Median price also show signs of improvement across price levels. The Berwick, Narre Warren South, Beaconsfield and surrounding markets have reached an exciting moment, with strong sales performance across all areas, especially in the entry level price categories and properties. We see the year continuing to be the turnaround in the market, those who get in first will reap significant rewards as price growth continues from low recent levels and thru the next 3-5 yr cycle.
