Market conditions are showing signs of softening with sales starting to plateau and in some cases falls of between 5 and 10% being seen depending on the geographic area.
In a conversation with Matthew Shalhoub of Sydney auctioneering company Under the Hammer today, Matthew commented that most good agents are now selling property prior to auction. Buyers are thinning out across all sectors – there’s no doubt that the reset button has been pushed and given past performance in a top of market cycle, there is usually a period of about 3-4 months of stabilisation. We then start to see consolidation again.
Given the fact that most buyers are still around, they’re probably just trying to find some direction in the market. If I was buying, I would try and find the seller with the biggest pain level in order to secure a bargain. In saying that, past experience dictates that there’s a magic time for buyers to enter the market before it fully stabilises and firms up.
