Wright Real Estate Doubleview

Quarterly Marketplace Report



2 0 1 6

WELCOME to our quarterly marketplace report It’s hard to believe we are through the second market quarter and already halfway through 2016, but as times change so does the real estate market in Perth. There’s no denying the market has been tough in real estate for both sales and rentals, seeing low housing prices with the apartment boom in full motion and economics affected by the Federal Election. On the bright side, it’s a perfect time for first home buyers to get into the market and for those who wish to upgrade or invest. Buyers are becoming more selective as the Perth metro region had 14,159 properties listed for sale this quarter. From April through to June 574 properties were sold in Scarborough, Doubleview and Woodlands and good listings at the right price are seeing a surge, with houses $800k-1.2m going well in the current market but cheaper units and villas are seeing a struggle. Now more than ever it’s highly important to present your property at its best and ensure it is priced correctly. Contact us for a free appraisal of your home and to see what we can do for you, the Wright way. We look forward to hearing from you soon,

Glenn and Kelvin

INVESTMENT | Is your home ready to rent?

So you’ve just bought an investment property, or maybe you have decided to rent out your house to the people of Perth… you may think it’s ready to lease but there’s some preparations you need to do to ensure your home is ready for rent. Broken? Fix it! Rent ready means exactly that – ready! Whether it’s a broken flyscreen or leaky taps, these are all things you must fix before looking for tenants. Common problems for renters include hot water systems not working, ovens breaking down or keys not working. Don't forget outside and make sure those fences, broken tiles, flaky paint or the rundown garden and lawn are up to scratch.

Clean it! Your property needs a big clean before you rent it out including: • carpets; • curtains and blinds; • flyscreens; • windows; • rubbish bins; • garage and more. Are you up to date with your requirements for current compliance and regulations? This can include RCD and smoke alarms, pool requirements and legal documentations. Does the property meet electrical and water efficiency standards under your local Residential Tenancies Act? Check the laws relevant to your property with our property managers today and take the stress out of your investment.
