Wondering if it is the right time to buy?
Here are some the latest Central Coast property trends
Rising prices: Due to low inventory and strong demand, home prices have been on the rise in many NSW areas (Sydney recorded a 1.7% rise in values in June 2023, following a 1.2% increase in May). Real Estate Institute of NSW says house prices continue to climb despite high-interest rates, but It's essential to consider the market conditions when making a decision.

Rental crisis: Rental pressures across Sydney continues. An increase in immigration to Sydney, a decline in rental listing (minus almost 20% over the past year), and increased interest rates cause rental prices to go up.

Increase in remote work: The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many companies to shift to remote work. This has resulted in more people looking for homes outside of urban areas, where they can enjoy a better work-life balance.

Increase in demand for larger homes: With more people working from home, there has been a significant surge in the demand for larger homes with dedicated office spaces. Having a comfortable and functional workspace has become a top priority for many.

Dip in demand for luxury markets: Some luxury markets have experienced a slight dip in demand, as people are currently looking for more affordable options. However, this can also present an opportunity for those seeking luxurious properties at a potentially better value.

Mortgage approval challenges: Borrowing capacity for many investors has decreased due to increased mortgage interest. Therefore, it's important to explore different options and consult with professionals.
The house & land package option might be worth exploring. With a minimal $1000 deposit, you can secure a property at the current market price, with settlement occurring one or two years later. This option allows you to benefit from the forecasted easier economic situation.
