November 2018 Newsletter

Welcome to the Berry Interesting November newsletter!

We have an exciting new property coming onto the market this month! More details will be released soon, but in the meantime we have included a sneak peek of this beautiful home for you.

Also this month you will find our Berry interesting property market report, upcoming local events and an introduction to Matt Cooney from RAMS.

As always, we would love to hear from you, so feel free to contact us should you wish to discuss anything in this newsletter – or anything Berry Property!

Two months into spring and we are seeing the winter trend continuing with acreage properties attracting activity and sales. Buyers have set their focus on land size, with 10 sales in total so far for spring. With 7 sales between 1.5 & 9 acres plus 2 further sales over 50 acres.

Land purchasers are still looking for value with more interest coming down the coast from the Illawarra. It’s interesting to see our coastal cousins in Kiama and Gerringong looking for a tree-change to Berry.

The residential sector is possibly the most talked about segment of the market. With no runs on the board for Spring to establish market value we will begin to see pricing return to a more sensible, and therefore sustainable level. This market correction is not unexpected and is not something to be feared. In fact without corrections such as these within localised areas, owning a home can become quickly unattainable especially with the changing face of lending in Australia.

If you would like to know more about the changes to residential lending, Matt Cooney of RAMS has shared some information below and we are sure he would be more than happy to discuss the current lending conditions with you.

Feel free to follow us on Instagram and Facebook (buttons below) where we will be sharing more market insights and some of the beautiful Homes of Berry #homesofberry
