first home buyers

Heated words over housing figures DEBATE has erupted over the latest Australian housing finance statistics, with one industry commentator labelling the data as “baloney”. The statistics, released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) last week, compare lending and home ownership trends throughout Australia with March, 2014. According to the latest data, the number of homes purchased by first home buyers is down three per cent from last month, to make up 12.3 per cent of the total lending market, a significant decrease when compared to May 2009 when first home buyers peaked at 31.4 per cent of the market. The data has resulted in many industry commentators slamming the decline including St George senior economist Hans Kunnen who, in an interview with 2GB Money News, attributed the perceived lack of first home buyers to state governments scrapping the First Home Buyer Grant (FHBG) for existing dwellings, along with a solid increase in house prices. Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) CEO Anton Kardash said changes to the real estate industry would help increase housing affordability and opportunity in Queensland. “We contributed to the REIA’s Senate inquiry submission, which includes a number of recommendations to boost housing affordability,” he said. “One of the things we want to see is the first home owner grant for existing housing reinstated, so that incentives exist for both new and established housing. “We also want to see the abolition of conveyance stamp duties and more private investment harnessed to improve the supply of social housing. “It’s important that government works closely with the states and territories to develop and implement tailored policies to address this important issue.” But industry commentator Michael Matusik has labelled the fall in first home buyers as “real estate baloney”, stating the attempts to explain the decline as a result of high prices, a lack of government funding or a shift towards investments home, as misinformed. “Like many things these days in the real estate world, it’s the figures that are incorrect. The ‘official’ statistics are measuring only part of the whole, yet very few question the results,” he said.

“In short, there is a hell of a lot of first home buying taking place.” According to Mr Matusik, the ABS and real estate industry commentators are not correctly corralling first home buying activity. “I think the statistics are wrong,” he said. “Why wouldn’t first home buyers be buying? Interest rates are extremely low, Mum and Dad are practically paying for the deposit to get rid of their ‘boomerang’ adult children ... yet, according to the same talking heads who claim low first home buyer take-up, housing affordability is the best in over a decade.

Matusik said conversations with real estate agents, including those selling new stock, indicate that first home buyer activity is much higher than the low levels officially reported. “I suspect that first home buying activity is close to the historic average - something around 35 per cent of the total owner-resident market and around 20 per cent of the total housing market, when including investors.” Mr Matusik said everyone should question the real estate data. “The media - for the most part - aren’t interested in checking the statistics before they regurgitate them,” he said.

“And to prove that point, there has been little change in the size of the average first home loan in recent years.”

“Much of what you read these days about property is sadly bunkum.”

ABS statistics show the average home loan is now $323,400, which is a 7.2 per cent increase from last year.

weekend round-up

Buyers keep market buzzing Co-principal David Conolly is gearing up for the auction of 21 Dolphin Bay Drive, Sunshine Beach.

THE sun was shining and the local real estate market was buzzing with a busy weekend in home opens, some great sales and new listings for local agents.

This home was customer designed by Kidd and Co principal Stephen Kidd, who had only a photo to work with when designing the home.

Richardson and Wrench Noosa co-principal Shane McCauley said busy home opens were becoming “the norm”, in what was a positive swing for the local market.

Mr Kidd said the facade was modelled off a stately Queenslander home the owners had found in Hamilton, Brisbane.

Meanwhile, two sales in Hastings Street and one in Sunshine Beach were also a reason to celebrate for the R&W team.

“They loved the home and brought me a photo of it, and then I modelled the family home behind the facade,” he said.

“It is nice to drive around Noosa and see a lot of sold signs currently, it is a sign of things to come,” Shane said. The group also reported a busy Sunday with a large number of beachfront inquiries. “Who could blame them, it was an absolutely stunning day,” he said. Shane reported investment properties were as “low as they have been for years, but of course, they won’t stay that low forever”. It has also been a winning week for the Century 21 (C21) Conolly Hay Group, which has just welcomed its 100th rental property, a new listing as well as some good sales. 14 Realestate Lifestyle | Thursday, 19 June, 2014

The Stephen Kidd designed Dolphin Bay home. C21 Conolly Hay co-principal Mike Hay and sales agent Brad McDonald secured the sale of a prestigious Noosa Waters property, sales agent Jason Wedge sold a unique Lakeshore Place property, and sales agent David Berns sold a beautiful acre block on Coast View Parade, Doonan.

Meanwhile, property manager Leanne Spence has just reached her 100th rental property listing with C21 Conolly Hay Group since starting only 18 months ago, when there were just 27 rental listings. “While many property owners found me when I moved, it is my dedicated service keeping them here,” she said. Leanne said the key to good service is to keep the communication lines open and not always by email, plus always treating tenants with respect and ensuring maintenance is completed when reported.

Sensational penthouse THIS impressive 220 square metre penthouse apartment enjoys a superb position in the much-desired Noosaville river precinct. LOCATED only a short stroll from boutique shopping, cafes and restaurants, the north-facing home offers luxurious living in one of the best locations in Noosa. This stunning complex was constructed only five years ago when the developers, then living in the cute Queenslander called ‘Blur River Lodge’, wanted to trade the old for the indulgent. The apartments were built with quality fittings and fixtures along with all the modern conveniences including zoned ducted air-conditioning, blackbutt flooring, high ceilings and an attractively landscaped property.

This home is surprisingly spacious with two generously sized bedrooms located at the rear of the home, with the main suite featuring a walk-through robe and ensuite.

As a local, Michelle knows the Noosa and Sunshine Coast real estate market and has expert tips and guidance for Lifestyle readers on how best to secure your dream home. This week, Michelle shares her seller’s checklist. It can be scary putting your home up for sale, but if you take some steps to prepare, you may find the process is much more simple and easier than first imagined. Before entering into a contract, research your local market and find out what your property is worth. Do the figures, taking into account items such as the cost of mortgage repayment fees (if applicable), agent’s commission, legal fees and any tax implications that may apply to your property. It is also important to prepare your property for sale. Get started on those repairs, declutter and clean your home so prospective buyers can see your

home in the best possible light. Either before, or once you have entered into a contract, forward a copy of your contract to your legal representation. Stellar Conveyancing can help you with all your legal requirements throughout this process. Remember to diarise important contract details so you don’t find yourself in a mad rush. It is also helpful to keep on hand

If you have a mortgage, then it’s time to contact your bank and let them know you are selling. Your bank will need you to sign a discharge authority for each mortgage as they will need to prepare release documentation. The bank will also need to know who is acting as your legal representation. At this time, your conveyancer will ensure that you have signed all specific documentation for the transfer of title. The legal side of selling a home can be confusing and complicated, but the help of a conveyancing expert can help make the process much easier to understand.
