This Week In Australian Property #7
I hope everyone’s had a great week!
It’s the first week of auctions for the year and while the number of properties under the hammer over the weekend was small we’ve started the year with a bang! 100% and 96% clearance rates respectively in New South Wales and Victoria.
Unfortunately it’s not good news for anyone from ACT with the First Home Owners Grant being reduced a second time within a year – the opposite to the news from WA last week; and for Victorians who are now looking like they will have the most expensive public schooling in Australia. If you missed it, here’s a link to a blog we published before Xmas on How To Pay for Your Kids School Fees.
This week we also look into the crystal ball for some property market predictions for the year, give you some tips if you find yourself having bought a new property before selling your old one, and for those renovating I’ve found an article with some lessons in bathroom renovations.
