Summer market update & Christmas message 2021
With 2021 drawing to a close , I find myself reflecting on 2021 and what a year it's been. It's safe to say its been another roller coaster year. With interest rates still at an all time low and record breaking property prices being achieved, it will be interesting to see what 2022 brings.
With the anticipated border opening, things will certainly be busy. No doubt some will take the opportunity to holiday overseas and it's highly likely more buyers will look to move to sunny Queensland from interstate. Not to mention the rental market moving into the busiest time of year - January-February peak season.
After the year that was, I know the whole team is looking forward to some time off over the Christmas period (just a couple days though) 😀.
Sales market update:
All in all, the sales market has by far exceeded everyone's expectations. I don't see it slowing anytime soon unless the interest rates are increased, but even then this may cause a further surge of buyers looking to buy. One particular property we tried to sell in late 2020 struggled to get offers over $399,000. Fast forward to now, the owner decided to relist and we've managed to sell the property for $480,000 setting a new street record. This was within a 12 month period - what a change of events.
