MAY 2021 NEWSLETTER

A WORD FROM OUR DIRECTOR

April was another stellar month for our team with record sale numbers and prices continually setting new benchmarks. There has been a real “snowball effect” with sellers becoming buyers now in the higher-end of the market, yet there is still huge demand for properties in the sub $550,000 price bracket with families, first home buyers and investors all quite active. Median prices have risen again the past quarter, on average Greater Bendigo’s median price has increased over 20% in the past 12 months. Stock is getting a little tight as we move into winter, which will keep prices strong, however this will change towards the end of the financial year. Our property management department is hectic with minimal vacancies and plenty of demand. Rentals again have been increasing, in some cases by 15% due to a lack of available properties around Bendigo. This is heavily impacted by new land developments waiting for approval and titles being released which will hopefully be relived towards the end of the year. In general business is going great, we have added a new team member Darcie who is very keen to pursue a career in real estate. Darcie will be helping in reception and property management.
