PORT AUGUSTA SALES MARKET UPDATE: JULY 2020
New opportunities are ready and waiting for investors in Port Augusta, and the rental return has interest coming from local and interstate buyers. The sale price points are indicating where the activity is centred, with any sub-$200K property getting solid enquiry interest weekly. The upper $200K and above market has slowed, but transitioning seller/buyers are moving into this price bracket in a very careful and methodical manner.
Value for money and features aplenty are key to achieving sales in the upper price range sector of the market. Sheds, multiple living and large yards are favoured, as COVID-19 lock-down wary buyers are ensuring their next purchase has a greater scope for lifestyle attached. New build homes are still far and few between, however, a new style of buying has emerged – Renovate through your mortgage. This involves securing more finance to step up to a better quality of home rather than negotiate a lower price and attempt renovations at a later date.
These interesting developments are all making for an exciting and unprecedented real estate market in Pt Augusta. Low vacancy rates, high buyer expectations and cheap finance means this is a great time to acquire another investment property.
