House Search Australia
Another happy client…
Shannon from Melbourne had this to recently say about his experiences with House Search:
“I found House Search to be very professional buyers’ agents. I found their advice and experience to be invaluable in helping me to secure a great property at a fantastic price… the cost of using them more than paid for itself with the great negotiating skills they used… Thanks for all your hard work!”

Market Update – Sydney Property News
Australia’s largest independent property valuation company, Herron Todd White, recently released their end of 2007 Market Indicators – a comparative analysis of the state of property markets in our capital cities. As a general overview, I find it helpful to see what stage of the property cycle we appear to be in, on a national basis.
City Stage of Property Cycle Adelaide Rising market Brisbane Rising market Canberra Peak of market Darwin Peak of market Hobart Peak of market Melbourne Peak of market Perth Declining market Sydney Start of recovery
With other factors including a steady rental vacancy trend, strong demand for housing and increasing property sales volumes it appears good news for Sydney investors.
Affordability, however, remains a sore point and will continue, as first home buyers find themselves increasingly battling with rising prices across most of Sydney’s inner and middle ring suburbs.
