Sydney property market newsletter

2017 is quickly coming to a close, and the Christmas holidays will soon be upon us.

It has been another very busy year for us as buyers agents, having purchased many properties around Sydney for our clients, mostly with tough competition.

Winter and early Spring has seen some signs of an easing in conditions and a more even market, which has seen many opportunities emerge for buyers.

If you are thinking about buying a new home or investment property, or need some advice when selling, then please call me anytime on 0409 105015.

What’s Happening in the Sydney Market?
The Sydney property market is still performing reasonably well however it is definitely not as heated as earlier in the year. Overall the Sydney market appears to have moved more into a plateau or modest growth phase, following over 5 years of continuous and strong price growth. We are also starting to see some good buying opportunities for those looking to purchase now, with less competition.  Read more.

Sydney Auctions Results - Clearance Rates

Sydney Auction Results
Clearance rates are used to establish the strength of a property market.  A low auction clearance rate usually points to the market being a buyer’s market, while a high clearance rate indicates the opposite – a seller’s market & a strong market. We’ve undertaken an interesting analysis of clearance rates in 2017 compared to 2016.

North Shore property hotspots

Lower North Shore Hotspots
Where are the best suburbs to invest?  We are recommending Chatswood, Crows Nest & North Sydney as hot spots for your investment property purchase.  First of all this is because these are all areas that currently have appeal, great amenities and good proximity to the city.  Plus, we believe that these suburbs will all continue to appreciate due to the completion of the new Sydney Metro Line and Stations currently under construction. Read more.

The Changes We’ve Seen Since 1999!
We’ve seen some big changes as Buyers Agents in the last 18 years!  In fact the term “Buyers Agent” wasn’t even commonly known or used in 1999 and we often had to explain to selling agents what we did. The beginning had us trawling the newspapers in search of the perfect property. Now days it’s the digital age and it’s all about the internet plus the relationships we have forged with agents over the years.  Read more.
