News & Views

Around 800 homes were scheduled for Auction in Sydney last weekend and buyers were spoilt for choice. NSW clearance rates were reported at 66% which is the lowest result for a non-holiday weekend since April last year. Results like these leave experts asking ‘Are we finally seeing our market stabilise?’

While house prices remain steady, the rapid growth of the last 5 years has begun to slow down. Buyers are becoming more cautious and favouring the more traditional elements of location, land and development potential when purchasing their slice of the ‘great Australian dream.’
