Despite general consumer caution, LJ Hooker chief executive Janusz Hooker said the proportion of households who consider now a good time to buy has risen to its highest level since the start of 2010.
Mr Hooker said with the uncertainty in the stock market, stable interest rates and improving affordability, many Australians are taking a close look at property as an attractive investment.
As such, the real estate has today launched a new spring campaign entitled: “make the most of it”.
“The two month campaign is designed to help sellers get the right buyer at the right price and assist buyers in finding the right property whether it’s a first home, upgrading or finding a profitable investment property,” Mr Hooker said.
“In 2011, Australians have continued to renovate to improve their property value. So LJ Hooker this spring is supporting this renewed DIY enthusiasm by offering a total of $10,000 for home improvements to customers who share their tips on increasing a property’s value via registering their tip on www.ljhooker.com.au from 15 September till 15 November 2011.”
