NSW: Sydney inner west market was on all fire on its first online auction weekend

4Mo ago 0 Replies 150 Views
The National Cabinet’s decision to place a ban on on-site and in-room auctions had little impact on the inner west, with the region recording the best clearance rate in Sydney.
CoreLogic reports that the inner west scored a 68 per cent clearance rate with 51 out of 75 properties selling on the day or prior to it.
Despite the clearance rate being 10 per cent down from last week, it was still 21 per cent above the Sydney-wide score of 47.3 per cent.

The region was also 11 per cent ahead of Ryde, which was the second best area in Sydney with a 57.1 per cent clearance rate.

In Marrickville, a four-bedroom home sold via online auction to a family who viewed the property just four hours before it went under the hammer.
The family went up against three other buyers for 15 Tamar St, Marrickville, which was broadcasted via Auctionslive, with Richardson and Wrench Marrickville staff on phones to bidders as back-up in case of any technology glitches.
The competitive auction saw the home sell for $15,000 above the reserve at $1.515 million.
Richardson and Wrench Principal Aris Dendrinos, said it was a difficult decision whether to move to a private treaty sale, but the vendor was determined to proceed with an online auction.

“We had a lively auction that was kind of weird exciting, a vendor who was prepared to meet the market if necessary, and enough competition to produce a strong sale,” he said.
A bidding frenzy from eight registered bidders saw a quintessential Newtown semi sell for $85,000 above reserve.

After the opening bid of $1.15 million, more than 90 bids were traded between four active buyers, before a young single male landed the knock out blow of $1.415 million.
Ray White Surry Hills director Shaun Stoker said despite the auction not taking place on-site at 88 Darley St, it was highly competitive.
“We’d carried out dry-runs for a few hours on Thursday and Friday to ensure our bidders and buyers had a smooth and seamless experience and that certainly paid off today,” he said.

NSW: More Sydney residents are planning a move to the Sunshine Coast

COVID-19 is poised to drive an exodus of people from Australia’s biggest cities as families bring forward plans to make a sea-change. Agents reported a recent surge in buyer inquiries from Sydney and Melbourne residents keen to make a move up the coast once restrictions ease, with the Sunshine Coast proving a popular choice. “These buyers have decided to bring forward their ‘sea-change’ plans and relocate here as soon as they are able to do so,” he said. “They are attracted by our affordable property prices but also by the coast’s enviable lifestyle, which was never more attractive than during the lockdown when our residents could still walk along the beach or go for a surf.” Mr Christmas said two of his recent sales were to Sydney buyers who viewed and bought the properties remotely. They were shown through the properties via video chat as they couldn’t be there physically because of the closed borders and other restrictions, he added.

Many city families who had been considering a sea-change to a regional area have been bringing forward their plans due to COVID-19, with one hot spot attracting particularly high interest.

NSW: Investors appear to be losing interest in Sydney's inner ring

Matt Halse, local expert for New South Wales at HTW, said investor activity appears to have slowed down substantially in the region, particularly in homogenous medium- and high-density areas such Haymarket, Zetland, and Forest Lodge. "This is largely driven by declines in rental demand pushing rents lower and therefore reducing overall returns," he said. In Zetland, for instance, the residential vacancy rate hit a record high in May at 6%, which declined to 5.7% in June. Mascot also recorded a high vacancy rate at 7.4%, according to figures from SQM research. "It appears that more first-home buyers are entering the market which does help increase demand for some of the investment style apartments, however, there is still an oversupply of apartments advertised for sale and lease," he said. It is crucial to note, however, that this trend is unlikely to improve soon, given the impacts of the COVID-19 on the general economy and the housing market. Still, Halse believes investors need to take advantage of the available properties that are at prices similar to or even lower than what they were sold for over the last few years.

Signs of property market recovery across many parts of Sydney has come to an “abrupt halt”

Todd White’s August Month in Review has outlined how the pandemic has created a shift in the nation’s diverse property market. For Sydney, the research shows varied results depending on the inner, middle and outer rings. “The residential property investor market has had some significant hurdles placed in front of it in recent years,” the report noted. “Tougher lender and regulatory requirements around investor loans, and the threat of removal of negative gearing and capital gains tax allowances prior to the federal election in May last year, significantly reduced the number of investors looking to get into the market. “However, with prices now falling and rental yields also under downward pressure, returns in the current financial year are likely to be significantly leaner,” Herron Todd White said. “Vacancy rates in the inner and middle-ring suburbs have been particularly hard hit since March, while the outer suburbs have continued to see a tightening vacancy rate.” Get details at: x ‘Abrupt halt’ felt by Sydney investors Signs of property market recovery across many parts of Sydney has come to an “abrupt halt” as a result of COVID-19, according to new research.

NSW: The Sydney residential market looks set to kick off spring

Over the past month 6000 new listings have hit the Sydney market, which is up 27 per cent on the same period last year. These early bird offerings have taken the total Sydney listings to around 20,000, which is two per cent less than the same time last year. So there is not yet an oversupply, but it could be coming. As much as the pandemic has and will continue to impact on listing volumes, and prices, life goes on for many.  The changing job landscape is likely to influence the market over upcoming weeks, and then well into 2021. Sadly much of it will be by employees who have lost their jobs, and business owners who have lost their business incomes. It has been investors rather than homebuyers who have moved quickly in reaction to pandemic, possibly with concerns about sustaining their rental incomes.

The Sydney property market looks set to kick off spring with a bang with 6000 new listings coming up for sale over the past month.

NSW: Sydney has seen its third straight month of home values falling

Sydney dwelling values have recorded their largest monthly fall in 16 months, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect the property market. The latest CoreLogic Home Values Index reports the median property value across Sydney dropped 0.9 per cent to $866,110 during July. The median price of a freestanding house was $1,002,107, 1.0 per cent lower than at the start of July, while the median unit price was $747,238, 0.7 per cent lower. The fall is being fuelled by homes at the top end of the market, which have suffered more a substantial drop in value than cheaper houses. “Urgent sales are likely to become more common as we approach these milestones, which will test the market’s resilience,” he said. CoreLogic reports new listings are up 46 per cent from the recent lows of early May and are now at a similar level to a year ago. Source: x Sydney property prices record largest monthly fall...
