Expected end of year activity If you're committed to purchasing a property, now is not the time to take your foot off the pedal. There is a distinct determination of buyers, vendors and agents to get deals done prior to Christmas and with other buyers getting distracted with Christmas preparations and other plans, now may be an opportune time to purchase. Unlike last year, where many agents worked through January after the desperation caused by lockdowns, agents want to take a break and are motivated to wrap up sales before the holidays. 2. Melbournians and Sydneysiders are moving back to the CBD Today's episode is about the contrarian approach to investing and one potential opportunity, (although the horse may have bolted) is purchasing a quality unit in the inner-ring or CBD that has unique attributes to provide long-term growth. Rental stock on the market for apartments in inner Melbourne have plummeted by 76% since February and this same count is down 56% in inner Sydney, showing that buyer demand for city units is now starting to pick up. 3.

Also more recently, a client who purchased four properties at the beginning of covid, who saw the opportunity, while others put their purchasing plans on hold. 3.

When a market is falling, it can be one of the best times to buy. But it is scary, due to the uncertainty of how far the market will drop or how long the decline will last before it swings back up. 4. Property market downturns Check out our show notes to see a graph of the last few decades of downturns. The downturns look like blips in the long run. When the market declines, the magnitude is not as great and the length not as long as when the market is on the rise. The most recent downturn lasted 18 months, which felt like a long time when you're living it, but in the scheme of our lives, is not very long. 5.
