Four hundred reasons for confidence

As regular readers of these posts will know, we’ve been saying for quite a while now that the property market in the north-west of Melbourne has remained far more active than many people realise, particularly if they have fallen for the trap of believing some of the misinformed scaremongering in the media over the past month or two.

So, if you missed the message that the Barry Plant group published on the back page of the Realestate lift-out in Saturday’s Herald-Sun this week, (May 23rd), we wanted to remind everyone that our network sold 405 properties during April. Yes, despite all the challenges of the ever-changing rules on Auctions, Open Houses and property inspections that occurred in April, our group assisted over 800 buyers and sellers to achieve their goals and to move on with their lives.

That’s a statistic that all of the team at Barry Plant Caroline Springs and Taylors Lakes are immensely proud of in a market where so many people have assumed that the real estate market has slowed substantially. Clearly it hasn’t. In fact, as we have reported in recent weeks, market activity has steadily increased since April, with a prime example being the successful sale of the three-bedroom townhouse (pictured) situated a stone’s throw from Taylors Hill Primary School in Callista Circuit, Taylors Hill.

This particular property attracted strong inquiries from a number of first home buyers and investors, (the two buyer types that were supposed to be hit the hardest during the current Covid-19 pandemic) and achieved a very pleasing mid-week sale at $528,000.

Results like these, along with the sheer weight of our group’s overall sales results in April, provide a telling insight into what is really happening on the ground in our local property market. So if you are currently weighing up whether this is the right time to make a move, and would like to discuss the various ways that you can maximise your result in the current conditions, don’t hesitate to give our team a call on 9307 4000. We’d be only too pleased to assist.
