Why is now a great time to invest in property in Narre Warren South?

The last year has created a lot of uncertainty for investors looking to get a foothold on the property ladder. If you’re reading this blog and wondering whether to hold off and wait to see if the property market will fall any further: we have the answers!

The Context
Think back to where Australia was just a handful of months ago.

Many of us across the country were working from home, and during this time we became experts in the art of social distancing. We became accustomed to closed businesses and schools and the panic shopping of essentials. The stock market had crashed and we were heading into a recession, whilst consumer and businesses confidence completely tanked.

The property market was placed in a period of hibernation, with some severe restrictions in place on home inspections and auctions. 

We overcame all of that, with new windows of opportunity that have created a perfect storm for property investment

Why is it a great time to invest in property in Narre Warren South right now?

It is likely that there will be weakness in some sectors of our property market as we move forward, but we have now entered a new window of opportunity for investors and prospective home buyers to get into the market. 

Here are some things to weigh up:

  • Federal Government initiatives and subsides to help the building industry.
  • Individual State Government initiatives and subsidies to help the building industry.
  • Interest rates which are at historic lows in our country, making borrowing as cheap as it has ever been, which means that holding investments or taking out new home loans are more affordable than ever.
  • A bonus level of security that interest rates are to remain low for many years to encourage people to borrow.
  • Also, the added consumer confidence that will return as we begin to work our way out of the recession and our lives become more normal again after COVID-19.
  • A return of international demand for Australian property.
  • A return of immigration and students to Australia is also possible later next year, which will also impact property demand.

To make lending criteria easier, rental vacancy rates are also an all-time low which means there are lots of prospective renters out there looking to rent.

With such historic low interest rates, it is a very common circumstance now for rent to cover mortgage repayments.

In summary

If you’re thinking of investing in property, now might be the right moment for you! 

Remember to look at market cycles, there has been a down market for over three years, and historical economic patterns can help us to forecast forward, which would indicate that we have around 5-7 years of quality property growth ahead of us.

We are at the bottom end of a growth cycle, which will see around a 40-50% growth in property prices in Narre Warren South alone over the next 5-7 years.
