Baulkham Hills Market Report | Autumn 2019 1


We’re not sales people. We’re matchmakers. We introduce people to houses, until they find the one they love.


Welcome 2019 is now in full swing and already is shaping up to be a very interesting year in the property and finance market. Throughout 2018 the property pendulum swung back and forth, resulting in most areas around the country, levelling off and shifting into what can only be best described as a ‘post-boom’ status. What is pleasing however, is that the so-called ‘bursting of the bubble’ that so many predicted did not occur and as we near the end of the first quarter, both seller and buyer sentiment is steady and thus, demonstrating confidence in the market. What is becoming extremely clear in this current climate though is the skill of agent - their tenacity, their drive, their financial aptitude, their ability to negotiate, their effort, their adaptability, their compassion and of course, their capacity to remain focused. Blocking out the noise from the media and focusing on key property fundamentals has certainly been crucial to the success of our agency. When the ‘doom and gloom’ headlines about declining auction clearance rates were rife, Ray White Castle Hill was, and still is, experiencing on average an 84% auction clearance rate! We’re also really proud to share that our first of the year ‘in-room’

auctions held late January at Castle Hill RSL saw 9 out of 11 properties sold in one night. It was a testament to our highly educated and professional team who continuously deliver superior campaigns for their clients and ultimately, assist them in reaching property goals. As we continue to organically grow our market share in our home suburb, we are constantly striving to deliver an exceptional experience for all who engage with us. In doing so, we have identified a growing desire of buyers not only looking to purchase locally, but to also invest in ‘out of town’ areas where rental yields may be more favourable. In order to nurture this need, Ray White Castle Hill is offering a no obligation appointment with our Head of Investments, who can advise and assist you in your wealth creation through property and financial solutions. If you would like to know more, simply email your name and contact phone number to: castlehill. solutions@raywhite.com. In the coming weeks, we will also have a page on our website dedicated to this new service, so be sure to check in regularly.

We look forward to assisting you throughout 2019 and welcome your enquiries, be it selling, buying, renting, leasing or investing. Our office is open Monday – Saturday, 9am5pm and can be phoned on 02 9680 2255.

Autumn Gardening Tips Autumn is a good time to get into the garden. Your soil will still contain a fair bit of warmth from summer before the winter rain hits, so it’s a great time to get planting! And you’ll also enjoy doing some D.I.Y. without the summer heat. Mulch for your Garden Mulch is your garden’s best friend. It helps the soil hold in moisture so you don’t have to water it as often and it also keeps down weeds. Over time, mulch will break down into your soil and improve it by adding nutrients. Fertilise your Lawn Fertilising your lawn will ensure that it stays green and healthy throughout the year. Autumn is a great time to fertilise because it protects your lawn through the winter months. You should aim to fertilise twice a year for the best results. Prune Trees Pruning helps improve the health and overall appearance of your trees. Removing dead or dying branches promotes crop growth in fruit trees. Plant Bulbs Planting bulbs is a great way to add a splash of colour to your garden. You’d be surprised

how many different colours, sizes and types of bulbs that you can choose from. Autumn is the perfect time of year to plant them as they’ll have enough time to grow before they are ready to flourish in spring. Bulbs are really easy to grow although make sure that you choose a spot with plenty of sunlight. Build a Garden Bed A garden bed is the perfect place to grow vegies or act as a focal point in your backyard. For the best results, use a good quality top soil so your plants get enough of the good nutrients they need to start growing. Also make sure before you build your garden bed to consider the location because the levels of sun and shade will determine which type of plants will grow. Plant fruit trees Australia’s climate and conditions are ideal for growing fruit trees. All they need is full sun, good drainage, room to grow and they’ll be thriving in no time. A good tip is to avoid

overcrowding your trees with other plants or structures like fences as this will curb their growth. Make your own compost Compost is a natural fertiliser that is great for your garden. It can help you save money and it’s good for the environment. Autumn is a great time to start making compost because many trees are dropping their leaves, which you’ll need to use. Make sure you get the balance right between garden waste and kitchen scraps in the compost mix for the best results.
