The negative expectations of the property market by some people, particularly as we first began to get our heads around the different restrictions that were introduced to deal with Covid-19, have proved to be unfounded on the whole. In fact, if you saw the back cover of this weekend’s Realestate lift-out in the Herald-Sun, you’ll know just how unfounded, as a recent check of the Barry Plant network’s database showed that our group currently has over 820,000 buyers registered as looking for their next home!
A power of a resource like this cannot be overestimated, as you will already know if you saw our recent post about THE GROWING IMPORTANCE OF OFF-MARKET SALES.
In fact, a quick scan of this week’s enquiries on our Cranbourne office shows good activity levels in all price ranges and areas, from young couples looking for vacant homesites to take advantage of the Government’s new incentives for home builders, to buyers looking for acreage for horses. There’s a bit of everything there, which is terrific news for anyone considering making a move in the City of Casey over the next month or two.
A prime example was the recent sale of an immaculate three-bedroom home at 104 Lawless Drive in Cranbourne North (pictured). This property drew positive comments from buyers for its flexible living and entertaining areas and its location just around the corner from the Cranbourne Golf Club, resulting in a highly competitive sale at $614,000.
So if you are weighing up whether this is the right time to make your move, and would like a confidential discussion about the difference that a resource like 824,704 registered buyers could make to your own result, feel free to give the team at Barry Plant Cranbourne on 5990 9400.
