Report from Buyer’s Agent, Buying Perth Real Estate, March 2020

“Perth property prices to rise by 6%”, say prominent forecasters.

Perth has been waiting to hear a positive forecast for Perth real estate since 2014!

According to Core Logic’s head of research, Tim Lawless, the 6% increase should follow the .4% increase experienced in December 2019.

Much of the increase will likely come NOW as a result of the Reserve Bank of Australia’s cutting the cash rate to a new record low of 0.5%.

Some major lenders are now offering rates to investors lower than those for owner-occupiers. This is rare.

We are advising buyers who missed out in 2019 to recheck their mortgage brokers as there are better finance deals around than there were in the latter part of 2019.

If you are considering investing in 2020, start the process now, with the present interest rates at the levels they are now, it’s clear that the finance lenders want your business.

From our observations, there is already a gradual surgent of interest in investing in Perth property.
