April Market Comment
It is fair to say the last 5 weeks have tested the resolve of most people. As we head out of Alert level 4 and into Alert level 3, the safety of our teams and our valued clients is paramount. We are constantly reviewing the health & safety protocols as directed by the Government Health Professionals.
We are also conscious there is a necessity for people to sell, buy and move during these unprecedented times whether a home owner or a tenant. To assist with this, in conjunction with the Real Estate Authority we have put in place processes and protocols for our team to show or demonstrate your property in line with the social distancing and sanitation policies. You can expect our team, and our clients to remove their footwear and make all inspections contactless. You will be required to give your approval to any property viewings and vacate the property during all inspections.
You may ask, what our view of the market is? I would suggest we are heading into some uncharted waters. That said the market will always deliver great results if you select the right consultant and one which will provide you with all the information to enable you to make an informed decision.
All the indicators, such as exceptionally low interest rates with the ability to fix for extended periods, an indicated change in the loan to valuation ratios as well as boosting the economy will bode well for the future. There are those that will have an opinion as to what will happen to real estate volumes and values, however we at Harcourts gold believe “Predicting a market isn’t useful, making the market happen is”.
Stay safe as you potentially extend your bubble.
The team at gold continue to bring exceptional property to the market. If you would like to experience a gold campaign, please feel free to call.
