QLD: Auction events kick off across the Gold Coast

4Mo ago 0 Replies 53 Views
Hundreds of properties to head under the hammer.
House hunters are out in force and keen to buy with the Gold Coast’s auction season in full swing.
Traditionally January is the city’s busiest auction period with several agencies holding events throughout the month, and even into February.
This year prospective buyers are being urged to come prepared as fewer properties were listed on the market, which lead to increased demand.

“Buyers are always out in force on the Gold Coast in January when holidays are in full swing as inquiries are on average more than 50 per cent above any other month.
More than 100 properties will go under the hammer at Ray White Surfers Paradise Group’s in-room auctions The Event, which is the biggest on the Coast, on January 25.
More than 2000 people attended last year’s event, which offered 95 properties to the market, with 230 registered bidders.
More than $19 million worth of sales were recorded on the day.

A view of Australian property market post COVID 19 pandemic

Australia’s housing sector has turned sharply as a deep economic shock from the COVID–19 pandemic has upended the market. The housing market is driven by owner-occupiers, where affordability and expected affordability are key, and by investors where confidence dominates. On affordability, one of the factors noted as a positive – the absence of a material monetary tightening prior to the recession – is also a negative. Interest rates may not be coming from a high starting point but they also have no scope to move lower.The RBA remains of the view that moving the policy rate into negative territory brings more costs and risks than benefi ts. And while the Bank still has some ways to generate further stimulus, these are unlikely to move mortgage interest rates much lower. Firstly, it means most of the affordability improvement must come from lower prices rather than lower interest rates or higher incomes.

What are your plans for buying a new property during this pandemic?

Along with my favourite café, restaurant and beach, now open homes are shut for the predictable future. Unless you can meet criteria that extends to you being a genuine finance approved buyer, solemnly swear to not touch anything, are in good health and of course not shaking the agent’s hand, the days of property viewing as a sport is a little difficult at the moment. With the established property doors closing on people’s faces we are seeing a marked increase in the enquiry for new builds. It makes sense, right? We are in a collective stay home order but that doesn’t mean you can’t plant a seed for your financial gain. With all your new spare time you can make some inroads to your future. Take for example the following things you would probably avoid doing on a sunny Saturday: • Get up to date with your tax returns • Review your financials• Get onto your broker  • Find out what you can potentially borrow • Start the online search This is the time to absolutely shine on your new property search. Even if purchasing is not an option imminently you can discover what changes you need to make in order to borrow funds to proceed. If you need to get rid of a credit card or a car loan, then focus your attention to this. Set up a plan, a real strategy, with goal dates and realistic monetary benchmarks to achieve this.

Experts are confident that Australian property market will be back on track faster than most

The COVID-19 pandemic and bushfires at the start of the year dealt a huge blow to Australia. As of yesterday, official figures have confirmed that the Australian economy has officially felt the impact of both, with its GDP shrinking by 0.3% in the first quarter of 2020. Private demand fell by 0.8 percent, and net trade contributed only 0.5 percent to the total GDP. Imports of goods and services fell by 3.9 percent and 13.6 percent respectively, while Australian exports dropped by 12.8 percent. COVID-19’s impact on Australia's property market is still one that is difficult to predict. Nevertheless, given the resilient nature of Australia’s housing market, experts are generally optimistic that Australia will be back on track faster than most.

Waiting for a market drop could leave buyers disappointed

“Notwithstanding the current support packages in place, standard responsible lending practices means that borrowers won’t be metaphorically cast out into the street post-September,” he said.  “Lenders are required to offer assistance to borrowers suffering from financial hardship any day of any week, even before the generous support currently being offered during the coronavirus crisis.” The buyer’s agent explained that it usually meant borrowers could apply for reduced repayments or interest-only loan terms for up to a further year. This means that in the short-term, as government support subsides, borrowers might struggle for a few months but would still be unlikely to be forced to sell. “Lenders have been compassionate with borrowers during the crisis, and that is likely to continue given the highly unusual financial circumstances at present,” Mr Ossitt said. “Also, there has been some indication that just because borrowers opted for a mortgage repayment pause, it didn’t mean they were financially struggling. “Rather, it seems that a significant proportion did so proactively to bolster their cash flow in case they experienced financial stress from the crisis.”  At the moment, the number of listings and buyers have fallen to the same degree, which has underpinned property prices,” Mr Ossitt said.  Read full article at: x Buyers warned against waiting for the dip Buyers have been warned that waiting for an impending market drop over the next three months could leave them disappointed. www.smartpropertyinvestment.com.au

New COVID-19 Code of Conduct for SME landlords and tenants experiencing financial hardship

A new COVID-19 Code of Conduct compendium aims to offer clarity to SME landlords and tenants experiencing financial hardship. “The compendium explains how the code is applied by each state and territory government and offers guidance for landlords and tenants in each jurisdiction to assist them in navigating these differences. The compendium will be updated as any remaining jurisdictions move to pass regulations dealing with the code,” a statement provided by Minters explained. “We believe landlords are genuinely trying to apply a spirit of good faith approach and look after their SME tenants, but they are challenged by complexities that arise due to the differences in how the various states and territories have separately legislated the code,” Ms Briggs said. While the code aims to balance the interests of landlords and tenants, Ms Briggs said each state and territory has been tasked to legislate as appropriate, creating uncertainty as regulations are applied in slightly different ways.  “The code allows for protections to apply during the pandemic period and recovery, but the recovery period has not been defined by the federal government, and the pandemic period and any recovery period has been inconsistently applied by the states/territories,” she said. In conclusion, MinterEllison hopes the compendium will assist landlords and tenants navigate their position “in the spirit in which the code was introduced”. “The pathway through uncertainty is mutual trust between the parties and a focus on good-faith principles,” said Ms Briggs.
