Happy New Year!
As the first month of 2019 is now behind us, I thought I’d take a moment to wish you a happy new year! I hope the next 11 months bring lots of happiness and prosperity to you. The Henry Wong Team has had a busy start to the year with the launch of our Facebook and Instagram business profiles. Please give them a look and if you’re interested in staying up to date with our news and views on the real estate market, then be sure to follow them.
We’ve also just released our market updates for Wishart and Mansfield and have been sending these out to our clients, potential buyers and sellers and to residents of those suburbs. These are very informative updates about what the market has been doing in Wishart and Mansfield between July and December 2018. If you’re interested in those areas or just curious about what the market is doing, get in touch and we’ll send you the updates.
I’m a proud Wishart local, having grown up here and gone to school here. My team is very active in both Wishart and Mansfield, appraising and selling houses every week. If you’d like me or one of my team to drop in for a chat about your property, let me know. I’ve sold a lot of houses in both areas, so I’m in contact with many local, out of area and interstate buyers. Having this network of buyers helps me sell properties faster and at the right price. If you’re looking to buy, sell or rent, or if you’re open to offers on your home, let me know.
What to Expect this Year
In the first half of the year we’ll see the effects of the royal commission into the banks coming into play. Likewise, the election is likely to play a big part with property prices, with negative gearing and capital gains tax being hot policy topics. Have a read of our blog post that goes into a bit more detail on this, but basically whoever wins the election will play a part in shifting property prices this year.
For now though, people are still buying and selling, and we’ve already seen new buyers coming onto the market. Always remember that if you sell and buy or buy and sell, it doesn’t matter when you decide to move as you’ll be transacting in the same market.
That’s it for now. Don’t forget to get in touch if you would like one of your Wishart or Mansfield market reports. Or if you’d like to chat about the market in general or in your area, I’m always open to a call on 0412471588. Have a great day!
