Auction Snapshot: Saturday 18 November

November 21st 2017

What’s happening in the market…

New laws have been put into place after the introduction of the policies earlier this year. “Foreign owners will be slugged with an annual fee if their property is left vacant for six months or more after legislation cleared the Senate. Deductions investors can claim on residential properties will also be limited,” The Domain Group stated.

The REIV’s recent data showed that, by looking at the next suburb over via the train line, buyers could save a six-figure amount. “Homebuyers willing to commute for a few extra minutes each day are able to consider a greater number of suburbs, including new growth areas which may not have peaked in terms of price growth,” said REIV President Richard Simpson.
