Harcourts Tandem Realty Update

Carol Christy from

The property market has regained its momentum after the New Year period, which is always a little quieter as many of us are at the beach! We’ve now entered March with strong listing numbers across all types of property and price levels.

Buyer interest is vibrant with hearty open home attendance by purchasers motivated to buy and fulfil their 2017 property dreams early. It’s great to see local homes looking at their best with the sun shining and flowers in bloom.

As forecasted last year, we’re expecting home loan rates to rise in 2017 as banks and other lenders aim to pass on the pressures of overseas funding costs increasing. The great news for vendors is that we’re beginning to see a spike in the market by buyers wanting to lock in lower two and three year rates now before any major rises take place.
