Jack GuthrieLeave a comment

Sydney property is internationally acclaimed as a blue-chip asset. Demand has buoyed the market to record highs, now reportedly being ‘the second least affordable market in the world’.

This signalling the start of a Sydney market stagnation. However, many are still willing to invest substantial deposits to buy in Sydney, despite the market clearly passing its peak.

Place vs Space…a shift in the way we live.

Jack GuthrieLeave a comment

Here is a bit of property economics 101, the closer you get to major urban centres the higher a property asking prices get. Accommodation closer to infrastructure, employment and education regularly attract higher demand from buyers and renters, consequentially achieving higher prices.

Jack GuthrieLeave a comment

Australia’s lending environment has been a rapidly shifting landscape over the last four years. While cash rates have come to an all-time low, APRA have initiated various restrictions to mainly cool Sydney’s strongly performing housing market.

This has left first home buyers and property investors alike with the question:
