Noosa Real Estate Market Report July 2013

A new financial year, a new mood from buyers in Noosa Real Estate Circles. Agents from boutique property agency Robert James Realty are reporting an increase in the numbers of people looking to buy property in the Noosa area from both Brisbane and interstate. There is recognition that the sales volumes are lifting, they are watching the market go up and believe it is a good time to buy. There are also a number of downsizers who, as their own local markets turnover, are choosing to downsize or invest for later. Some of the requests our agents are dealing with are for specific lifestyle needs, such as ground floor apartments or land of a certain size to build on. The team at the agency work proactively together to come up with solutions for those requests, for example, land buyers with a budget shouldn’t look past existing dwellings in coveted areas that offer redevelopment potential. Another type of property in high demand is for pet friendly low maintenance apartments. Questions that pop up very frequently through buyer enquiries are finance related – in terms of lending, obtaining finance, job availability and salary rates. Our agents work very closely with local expert financiers, so whilst they mightn’t immediately know what a local plumbers annual income is, or what leverage of finance that income can attain, they can very quickly put together some helpful qualified insight from those who do.
