A stunning home in one of Killara’s most sought after streets found a new owner last week, about five months after first coming to market.

“It was a very unique property and sometimes those unique properties take a little longer to find the right buyer,” he said.

Mr Cohen said he had seen a marked increase in the number of buyers in the upper north shore market in recent weeks.
“There is incredible activity out there,” he said.

“I’ve been overwhelmed at the level of activity at the top end of the market.”

Mr Cohen said buyers were becoming more comfortable buying a house through one-one private inspections and live-streamed online auctions.

NSW: Sydney’s sellers have moved to make the most of the current circumstances by embracing online auctions

The same lockdown restrictions that have driven Sydneysiders indoors are also driving a return to online auctions.While one-on-one private inspections are exempted under the current restrictions, physical auctions are not allowed to take place. The Real Estate Institute of NSW said this forced shift to online auctions has been critical in helping Sydney’s property market maintain a high clearance rate, despite the dire conditions. “Back in the first lockdown, it was new, and while it is still new for some people, they are at least peripherally aware of online auctions and realise it is a perfectly legitimate and transparent way to buy,” he said.Mr White believes that the recent downturn in listings volume represents an opportunity for the market. Commenting on the persistence of Sydney’s property market in the face of lockdown restrictions, Mr Axford said that “buyers haven’t disappeared like last time, although there is some hesitancy from new sellers when really there shouldn’t be”.

NSW: Sydney might be locked down, but the NSW property investors are always on the lookout for the next hotspot.

With Sydney’s property market in lockdown, more and more investors in NSW are turning towards the capital of the Northern Territory as a potential alternative. According to Raine & Horne Darwin, the return of restrictions in the Greater Sydney area has coincided with a surge of interest from NSW-based property investors. “Previously, investors were ignoring vacant apartments or those nearing the end of a lease. But with rents in Darwin and Palmerston going through the roof, they are now popular with savvy investors,” he said. Mr Grantham said that NSW investors “have identified that Darwin property is offering not only excellent growth prospects but also investment yields above 7 per cent compared to Sydney, where it’s particularly challenging to find a 3 per cent return”.  Read details at: x Lockdown-envy cited as Sydney property investors t...
