Excellent time to make move as buyers return

AS Covid-19 restrictions ease and life, for the most part, returns to a “new normal”, right now is a good time to make your move in the property market.

There are many predictions about what direction the market will take in the coming months, but buyers remain active and if you’re wanting to sell, we can find the right buyer and achieve a great result.
The Sydney market increased by 4 per cent in April and asking prices remained stable so we’re not seeing a huge impact as a result of the Covid-19 lockdowns; and with open homes and on-site auctions back on the agenda earlier in May, hopefully this trend will continue.
Now is a great time to check out the range of properties we have available and they’re proving very popular.
In fact, we had over 30 groups through one apartment in just a couple of weeks that would normally attract less than that during the entire campaign.
With housing stock down, however, there’s simply not enough property to meet buyer demand, but as confidence continues to build, things should start to become a little more balanced.
Regardless of what the market is doing, one of the key factors in achieving an above average return is presentation.
Your home should look its absolute best when it hits the market and we highly recommend professional styling to make it shine.
Location of course is also a major selling point. Properties close to transport continue to be popular, and school catchments are particularly influencing buyers’ choices.
This will never change, so it’s important to be aware that these are things buyers are interested in.
