012 is definitely the time to invest in property instead of the share market. All signs point to a booming rental market this year, including impressive turnouts at open homes for rent and tight vacancy rates. According to news.com.au, Tim McKibbin, CEO of the Real Estate Institute of NSW, said the residential rental market is experiencing heavy demand which is far outweighing supply. Strong rentals and a shortage of property means that landlords are able to pick and choose tenants who often offer more than the advertised market rate in order to secure a lease. "It's a landlords' market," Mr McKibbin said. "At the end of the day, what the landlord is looking for is a person who goes into their property and won't wreck it. They're looking for capital growth and they're looking for someone to pay the rent on time." He added that an "addiction" to property taxes at all levels of government coupled with obstacles for planning approvals lead to a slowdown in much needed construction. "With supply not meeting demand I'm very certain that you're going to see rents remaining quite high." Figures from Australian Property Monitors showed the median rent for houses in Sydney has now reached $500 a week and $460 a week for units. Inner Sydney vacancy rates fell below 1 per cent by mid last year, a rate the REINSW described as "alarming". This rental shortage is sure to bolster sales demand for typical rental properties such as affordable one and two-bedroom apartments. Since January 1 first home buyers now have to fund their stamp duty, meaning that they are likely to stay in the rental market for longer. The result of this is that we're likely to see more people trying to acquire rental properties to take advantage of this situation.

THE BEGINNERS GUIDE TO AUCTIONS So you've found your dream home and you want to make it yours now! There's just one hurdle, it's up for auction. How do you prepare for this type of sale and how do you remain cool and calm on the day?

T

here ’s no denying it, for first home buyers especially, an auction can be exciting, stressful and maybe even a little terrifying if you don't know what to expect. The good news is that with the right planning and helpful guidance from a professional real estate agent such as One Agency, you can own your dream home and secure it at a price that matches your budget and it's true value. Before you bid on a property you need to make sure you have completed all of the essential research and preparation. This includes undertaking building inspections, securing your finance and reading the contract of sale, including the Vendor's Statement which includes information about rates, local government building restrictions and easements (if any). You may even want to ask your conveyancer or lawyer to check the fine print. Do some exploring in the area in which you wish to buy. You may want to check out median house price information or review the past sales results of properties in the vicinity to ensure you have a realistic purchase price in mind. An auction is usually held at the property itself. When you plan to bid at the auction you need to register your details when you arrive. Ensure you arrive early on the day so you can take one last look around the property. You'll also feel more relaxed and level headed if you have time to spare. Attending other auctions in the lead up to yours is also a great way to become accustomed to their pace and procedure. At the beginning of proceedings the auctioneer will describe the property and describe the contract. They will then begin taking bids. This is when the excitement really builds. Some buyers take along a friend or family member who bids for them if the task is a little daunting. As the auction unfolds don't be afraid to bid strongly and confidently, letting others know you mean business. If you are successful at the auction you'll be asked to sign the contracts and pay the deposit, so don't forget your cheque book! Once that's finalised, the only thing left to do is celebrate. You've jumped that last hurdle and bought yourself a home.
