To Sell or Not to Sell

June 20, 2021 by Kennards Self Storage

Australia is currently experiencing a housing boom and the Newcastle suburbs are no exception. 

As the interest rates have been dropping and the yield rates are increasing 3.5 per cent in Newcastle alone, which is leading to an increase in return for investors.

House prices have increased by 10 % over the past year so the home owner is selling while the property market is hot. At the same time, advertised supply remains well below average.

This imbalance between demand and supply is continuing to create urgency amongst buyers, contributing to the upwards pressure on housing prices.
