SEPTEMBER MARKET RECAP
Buyers and sellers looking to take advantage of the Spring selling season received a shot of confidence on Tuesday with the RBA opting to hold the official cash rate at 4.1%.
Buyers with pre-approval can now table offers and bid with assurance of meeting loan serviceability without bank reassessment, but acting soon is key. KPMG expect house prices to rise 4.4% to June 2024, then another 10% by June 2025.
Why? Put simply, supply and demand are at play with fewer houses and low dwelling completion rates not enough to cover buyers and the forecasted surge of 750,000 migrants entering Australia by 2025. Opportunity knocks for savvy investors.
For sellers, we are seeing the ninth month of national home price growth – largely due to the lower property supply levels of 2023. Great news if you’re selling.
