Is Now the Time to Buy Property?


Investors everywhere are asking this question: Is now the time to buy? 

In some areas of Australia, the prices of houses are decreasing while in others, the prices are increasing. 


Recording-Breaking Sales

Of course, there’s always that record-breaking sale that alters the overall statistics. For instance, Ed Craven recently purchased a Melbourne mansion to the record-breaking tune of $88 million. 

Craven is a 26-year-old millennial businessman who founded—an online cryptocurrency casino. He purchased the property at 29-31 St Georges Road, Toorak. It is currently the highest price paid for a home in Victoria, and third highest property sale in Australia.

Ironically, just down the street from Craven’s new property, 17 St Georges Road, is currently set to take the fourth highest property sale in Australia at around $65 million. 

Wondering what took the first and second place for highest property sales? According to, “The national record price is the $100 million sale of Sydney trophy home Fairwater, in Point Piper, to Atlassian software billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes, followed by mining chief John Li’s $95 million purchase of Edgewater, also in Point Piper.”


Will Housing Prices Rise or Fall? 

In the current real estate market, the median price of residential properties across the Australian capitals is just over $1 million. 

The cost of real estate is currently declining, though not at as rapid of a pace as the experts have been predicting. It helps to keep in mind that property prices have risen anywhere from 21 – 41 per cent depending on locale in the last couple of years. 

Therefore, the prices would need to drop quickly and dramatically to go below pre-COVID prices. Interest rates are between 4.84 – 6.17 per cent depending on the type of loan. 

Nevertheless, the Reserve Bank of Australia has raised interest rates for the fourth month in a row, lifting the cash rate by 50 basis points and placing further strain on the nation’s highly leveraged mortgage holders.

So… Is Now the Time to Buy?

Keep in mind that the Australian property market isn’t just one market. You might not be ready to make a record-breaking deal like Craven, spending $88 million; however, affordable housing is in huge demand, and the rental crisis is increasing. If you’re looking to buy properties that meet the needs of this demand, you will be far more sheltered from any fall in prices.

There are always exceptional deals out there, but in today’s market, it’s more important than ever to have the right experience and expertise to find, vet, and finance them. Don’t worry. You don’t have to navigate this real estate journey alone. We can help!
