Autumn 2012 Property Guide Issue 118


MARKET REPORT

It’s autumn time in Victoria and the prevailing market conditions are steady. We are pleasantly surprised by the number of people seeking to secure a property in the inner west and anticipate a busy season ahead.

2012 has started off well as the market is looking in a better condition than it did a year ago. Last year we experienced a slowing economy, turbulence in interest rates and sensationalism from the media of a “property bubble.� This year it is a different story as signs of a stronger economy signals positive news for buyers and we are enthused for a healthy autumn selling period with solid buyer demand. Housing is more affordable than it was a year ago as prices are below their peak in nine out of ten suburbs and following two interest rate cuts the cost of borrowing is also lower. The REIV reported house prices in Melbourne dropped 6.1 per cent in the year to December, behind only Brisbane, down by 6.7 per cent and Adelaide, down 6.4 per cent. With these interest rate cuts we are

seeing more people selling their properties, interest is at an all-time high and the market is looking stable. Compton Green is proud to be servicing the western suburbs. The west of Melbourne has affordable and a diverse range of stock available, all which has shown steady capital growth. Purchasing a property in this region is a smart choice because of the close proximity to the CBD and the fact our prized municipalities have some of the best infrastructure in Melbourne. With a high level of customer enquiries the Compton Green team is busy working hard. Our vibrant team is 100 per cent committed, always striving to achieve exceptional results and the results speak for themselves. We continuously receive endorsements from our clients who appreciate our

unsurpassed level of customer care. As we look ahead there are many exciting plans for 2012. Our State Of The Market Information Evening in September will provide local residents with an in-depth understanding of the current property market trends on both a local and state level. Last year our State Of The Market Information Evening was a great success as 200 people attended so I am expecting it will be an impressive turnout once again this year. We wish you all the best in your search or sale and look forward to assisting all our existing and new clients in making their change possible.
