Gearing Up For Spring Selling


 
We are in the home straight now with only one week of winter to go and one more round of AFL football before the finals. There is a definite buzz in the air as listing activity heightens and our auction schedule starts filling up for the coming months.
 
Sales rates over winter have been down on last year and that is due primarily to a lack of homes coming onto the market. Uncertainty about the election, the banking royal commission and a perception that the market is sluggish have all played a part.
 
But we are optimistic that this Spring will be a robust one for the real estate market in Geelong. We have not seen the decrease in house prices that other areas in the country have, but rather a levelling off in what had been a red hot market.
 
Interest rates are at all time historical lows; the buyers are out there but they are limited for choice. If you are thinking of selling, now is a great time to capitalise on this demand and we would be happy to provide a market appraisal and advice on how to maximise the ultimate sale price of your home.
 
Until next week
