First Quarter Report 2017

Quarter One featured all the hallmarks of a market fully engaged; highlighting high demand in popular, amenity rich suburbs, a significant shortfall in supply facilitating robust/appreciating values.

The emerging challenge ensuing for those not actively engaged in selling is the obvious vendor attraction to offering parties already sold or coming from the rental sector.

The classic dilemma of ‘buy first or sell first’ has never been more poignant.

The answer? That clearly varies from personal circumstance to personal circumstance.

Our recommendation? If you’ve decided you want to move, allow us to give you advice. Given our intimate local knowledge of dynamics and demand, we can often facilitate sale and purchase concurrently.

The market may well be buoyant if not bountiful in the traditional measurements of time to sell and price achieved, however that does not mean it’s ‘easy’ - far from it. A move at this time requires appropriate timing, tactical planning and coherent strategy.

As we embark on Quarter Two of this year (traditionally our busiest) if your objective is to change home for whatever reason, it’s our sole focus, priority and privilege to make it happen.
