Best growth and buying opportunities in NSW revealed

Best growth and buying opportunities in NSW revealed

Recent analysis of new data has come to two distinct conclusions: that buyers still hold the power in the NSW property market and price growth is a distinct possibility. 

Sydney
June 26, 2019

Analysing CoreLogic’s Market Trends report for June, the Real Estate Institute of NSW’s (REINSW) CEO Tim McKibbin has come to the conclusion that the current market softening in NSW over the last year is “likely plateauing”.

“Market engagement evidenced, in part, by improved auction clearance rates supports that supposition,” Mr McKibbin said.

“For purchasers who have been waiting for the market to bottom, now is a good time to be looking closely at where the market is headed over the coming months.

“With the election and Banking Royal Commission behind us, the recent RBA interest rate cut - and more cuts predicted - the fundamentals are in place for growth in property prices.”

The analysis, looking at median sales price data of NSW house and unit markets from 1 January to 31 March 2019, found declines in Sydney and regional markets increased and encompassed more markets.

According to the data, 81 per cent of all Sydney house and unit markets saw declines of an overall 2.7 per cent drop.
Across the state, 68 per cent of all house and unit markets declined to an overall 1.7 per cent drop.

“If you’ve got your finance organised, now is the time to start looking in earnest. Conditions for vendors are beginning to improve. The full effect of the RBA interest rate cut is yet to fully kick in,” Mr McKibbin said.
The top and bottom growing markets

In addition, the analysis pinpointed the 10 suburbs which saw the greatest growth across the state, and which saw the greatest declines.

For growth, the number one market over the first three months of 2019 was the Branxton house market, which saw growth of 22.7 per cent. Meanwhile, the greatest decline was felt in Concord’s unit market, which experienced declines of 13.2 per cent.
