South East Tuggeranong (upsizing)


Over the last four weeks, we have seen mixed results with buyer activity, some uncertain about the future of employment as we head to an election, and some with a much more stable and positive outlook for Canberra. But what we haven’t seen is a drop in buyers willing to make offers on properties. A change in family circumstances is still fuelling the majority of decisions to purchase. At the start of the month, the

Reserve Bank reduced interest rates to historically low levels. This is assisting buyers to make a decision to purchase with more confidence. With finance now available at a rate of less than 5% interest, buyers renting or still living at home are seeing this as an attractive time to purchase their own home. Entering the spring seasons, statistics show that the average days on market is traditionally lower during the spring than other times of the year. Even taking into account the large amount of properties available over this time it seems that buyer demand, and willingness to make purchasing decisions quickens

at this time, mostly due to the excitement of being settled into a new property in time for Christmas. Be on the look out for more auction campaigns beginning as the spring market kicks off, historically the busiest time of year for this sale method. It’s a great way to sell for owners, as it keeps days on market short, and gives buyers the opportunity to buy their dream home even before auction day.

MONTHLY RENTAL SNAPSHOT The past month has seen a stable rental market with a slight increase in new tenant inquiries. Prices have eased and tenants have been negotiating with owners on new and existing tenancy agreements. We have found that some existing tenants are reluctant to commit to new fixed term leases, however we predict this will change after the federal election. With a little under 50% of the Tuggeranong population consisting of families with children under 15 years of age there has been strong interest in family sized homes close to schools and shopping areas. Our leasing consultant is continuing to work with new tenants closely, logging requirements and working to match them to the right property once one becomes available. This has dramatically reduced the vacancy period of properties under our management.
