Sydney’s property market is on the rise again.

By Kenn Leong

Many thought prior to the Federal Election, that the Sydney property market was not the right place to invest. But despite uncertainties, Sydney’s home auction market has only strengthened in recent weeks. In one week the weekend clearance rate was 73.5% and a week later, 75.4% with the main driver being Sydney’s market is characterised by fierce competition between buyers, over smaller pools of property.

Last year 605 properties went to auction on the same weekend that this year was just 419. As expected, it was way ahead of the 200 auctioned over the election-day weekend.

In most regions and the Eastern Suburbs in particular, the Sydney home-auction market continues to record robust results for sellers with strong buyer competition for listings.

Although the Reserve Bank has left interest rates on hold over July at a record low 1.75%, it is very possible there will be a further reduction sooner rather than later – perhaps as soon as next month.

Low and falling interest rates supports buyer and seller confidence with strong competition amongst banks for mortgage customers also driving housing demand.
