Brisbane's rental market, Brisbane's sales market

What's really going on? A guide to real estate in Brisbane's inner suburbs

Regular readers of this blog might have noticed, but the soothsaying and tea-leaf reading of real estate markets is not something we believe we’re qualified to make bold statements or comment on. We’re not economists or members of the Reserve Bank Board. We don’t know what will happen to the Dow tonight, your Footsies tomorrow or job vacancy data next month! We believe the fortunes of real estate demand and prices of homes are tied to all those things and many other influences.

What we do know a heap about is the activity ‘on the ground’ in your local, inner Brisbane real estate market. The prices that are actually being paid. The comments buyers are making to us daily about their banks. Some of the reasons a huge number of sellers are holding off from listing their place for sale. The things tenants rate as their “must haves” in a home. What fears some landlords are facing. Why 17 home buyers are sitting and waiting for a particular type of property to come on the market in one inner suburb!

So while we won’t make a grand prediction on capital gains (and we don’t have a “recipe of the month” to go with that forecast!) we can share some useful info if you’re thinking of selling or need a hand managing your rental property. We’re here to help.
