1. The Real Estate Market in the Macarthur Region

    Two years ago, the real estate market in the Macarthur region was undergoing exponential growth. Demand was on a record high due to low interest rates, causing prices to skyrocket to keep up. People were on waiting lists to secure properties, but reports indicate that up to 90% of buyers in the region were investors.

    This trend continued on through 2015 and 2016, and now prices are higher than ever before. However, heightened activity in the city centre of Sydney has caused the macarthur region to slow down by comparison. Statistics from realestate.com.au show that Oran Park Town has a median

  2. Commercial 2016 in Review

    Market Commentary
    The commercial property market is generally very healthy at the moment. Demand for properties for purchase is particularly high, while supply is slightly limited. For sellers, there is greater demand for smaller units – around 200-250 sqm – than larger units, which suffer from higher prices. In this regard, there are more properties available to rent than buy in the current climate.

    For those looking to let or rent, square meter rates are sitting around $120/sqm. Looking to selling and purchasing, there is evidence of square meter rates sitting at no less than $24

  3. Residential 2016 in Review

    Market Update
    2016 has proven to be a significant year in the residential property sector, characterised by steadily increasing housing prices, slightly stagnating rental prices, and an oversupply of property.

    Residential Review
    Somewhat surprisingly, there has been an increase in activity in the rural market. While growing developments have provided a steady stream of properties, it would appear that buyers are more interested in the increasingly rare commodity of larger lots. Substantial lots in the vicinity of 1000 sqm are quick to sell, while comparatively smaller lots – those around

    Things have been quietening down this month as Christmas draws near. Over the years we have observed that people in the residential market do behave differently as the clock ticks down to the 25th! We find that decisions are not made on the spot at this time of the year and are being left until the New Year.These behaviours are quite common in the market through December and January however after the real estate boom we saw this year we are very interested to observe how the market reacts from February onwards.

    Into 2016 we are also looking forward to monitoring how the investor market perfor

  7. Commercial Review

    Commercial properties demand is increasing and supply is limited. Our Commercial Property team have been busily working away the past few months with the increased interest in the commercial sector. We have recently listed 11 industrial units in Smeaton Grange. These units are brand new and range from 200 square metres to 300 square metres. Nine out of eleven of these units sold straight off the plan within a week which truly shows the demand for industrial properties.

    Investment grade commercial industrial and retail properties are in high demand! As a result of this we have seen expected yi
