Property cycles have been tracked for over 100 years and the research shows a consistent pattern of property prices moving in cycles. History tells us that small cycles generally occur every 9 years and major cycles every 18-20 years, but they are never the same. One factor that triggers the peaks and troughs in the property cycle is interest rates. It is important to note that all previous slumps have been the result of a significant increase in interest rates. But each cycle will vary depending on the economic conditions and social circumstances at the time. In Australia we have many local markets, all at different stages of the property cycle due to local conditions. In the Manningham area, the recovery in housing prices started in the second half of 2013. Both Manningham and the Melbourne property markets have enjoyed a positive 2014. Although house price growth is likely to moderate in 2015 the early market indications are positive, underpinned by: • historically low interest rates • strong population growth • a sound banking system with low rates of mortgage arrears across Australia • a big appetite for capital growth by property investors • a low Australian Dollar makes it more attractive for expats to re-enter the market • a preference by overseas investors to place their money in Australia’s largest capital cities, providing them with a safe haven for their money Also the low Australian dollar will encourage even more overseas investors to invest their money in Australian property. Some are buying development sites while others are investing in new and off the plan high-rise apartments in our major capital cities.

The pressing need for a rail connection to Doncaster is finally receiving state attention, as shown in a recently released State Government planning strategy. Known as 'Plan Melbourne', the document is available online, and features blueprints and a comprehensive report pertaining to the Napthine Government's vision for the city of Melbourne over the course of the next 35 years. The state Government expects that by 2050, the population of Melbourne will increase by 2.5 million people. Based on this calculation, the city will require over one million additional residential dwellings. Around 60% of these are likely to be in the form of units or apartments within Melbourne's established suburbs. The document also outlines the Government's plan to improve public transport, such as developing long-awaited rail lines to Doncaster, Rowville, as well as Melbourne and Avalon airports. This is in line with Premier Denis Napthine's aim to create a '20-minute city', where new transport routes will decrease travel times to and from the city, raising potential for both homebuyers and jobseekers. Planning Minister Matthew Guy confirmed that Plan Melbourne will support councils' efforts to increase residential developments, such as those in the Eastern suburbs. Developments on Doncaster Hill are already underway, with the aim of creating over 4,000 new residential apartments, as well as 30,000 square metres for commercial and retail use. Stretching approximately 60 hectares from the central point of the Westfield shopping centre, the Doncaster Hill area forms a key part of the Manningham Council's 20-year strategy for greater sustainability. Other aspects of this project include plans for the creation of more public open space and the redevelopment of the Eastern Hill Golf Club site. In terms of the government's plan for the new Doncaster rail line, the Manningham Council has supported two proposed options. The first of these would feature a route along the Eastern Freeway to Collingwood, with two additional stations at Bulleen and the Doncaster Park and Ride. The second would provide an underground link through to Parkville, lending access to Melbourne University and the hospital precinct. Further suggestions by the Council regarding these transport routes include the addition of a station at Burke Road, connections with the North Balwyn and Camberwell tram routes, more detailed modelling in relation to cyclists and pedestrians and an extension of the new rail line leading to Doncaster Hill. By linking the Doncaster rail straight to the heart of the new developments, this will maximise the number of transport routes to the bustling cosmopolitan centre, increasing its viability and making the area more desirable for property investment. Both commercial and residential prospects are likely to increase with accessibility, ensuring a brighter future for the Manningham area. -

In this episode we demonstrate the difference between a public auction and a private sale using a modified Nobel Prize winning concept of the "Silent Bid Declaration". We take a look at the sale of this property with 3 interested buyers negotiating with Hudson Bond sales consultants, using the silent bid declaration. The final offer from each buyer is placed in a sealed envelope and kept confidential. No buyer or salesperson is privy to what the other offers are. The sealed offers are only opened in the presence of the seller. Now let's take these same 3 buyers and let them bid against each other for the same property at auction and see what it sells for. Let's go back to the seller opening the sealed bids from the same buyers and see what it sold for under a private sale using the silent bid declaration. This is $65,688 more than it sold for at auction. Why is it so? Because the winning buyer didn't know what the other buyers were prepared to pay. So he paid his highest price, as opposed to making one more bid above the losing bidder. This is what happens most times when we use the silent bid declaration. Hudson Bond get tens of thousands of dollars more for their sellers than they could get at public auction. If you too want to get the highest price for your property contact us on 9840 7700 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We take a look at the key economic fundamentals that drive our property market. 1) Population growth Australia has one of the fastest population growths in the western world. Based on conservative assumptions, Economists BIS Shrapnel estimate Australia's population will increase by 5.3 million within the next 13 years. With an average of 2.5 people per household this translates to a need for an additional 2.1 million new homes. 2) Construction of new housing According to many analysts, Australia has a shortage of new housing. This is not true of all areas. There are some pockets of oversupply, such as apartments in the CBD and house & land packages in the outer suburbs. However, there is a constant shortage of housing in the popular inner to middle suburbs. 3) Unemployment Unemployment in Australia currently sits under 6% which is lower than most countries. For unemployment to negatively impact the property market, it requires a large number of people not being able able to meet their mortgage repayments, forcing them to sell. 4) Interest Rates & Australian Dollar Interest rates are the lowest they have been for many years. Low interest rates help the affordability of housing. People now have a greater buying power and a higher disposable income. 5) Consumer Sentiment Consumer sentiment is something that is hard to measure and generally reflects the mood in the market place. With a change in government, coupled with low interest rates and a strong economy, there is a renewed confidence in the property market. As you can see from the basic economic fundamentals, Australia is poised for a stable property market that should continue to rise over the coming years. -

Hudson Bond Real Estate Agents Director, Paul Kounnas, discusses "What is my property really worth?" Advice, tips and help on buying and selling real estate in the Manningham area and surrounding suburbs. "Property valuations are only an opinion of what a buyer may be willing to pay in today’s market. It's no surprise that depending on who you ask, you are likely to be quoted a different price. Unfortunately, there is no scientific formula for what you can use to determine your home's value. Your opinion will always be swayed by your personal attachment to the home. The emotional attachment to our own home is commonly referred to as the 'Endowment Effect'. A professional valuation by a qualified valuer will give you the closest indication of what your property is worth but this will cost you several hundred dollars. Ultimately, the only opinion that really matters is that of a genuine buyer." -

A choice of two subtle colour schemes has been developed to make each new home a blank canvas on which to build your personal style. Balancing thoughtful architecture with enduring quality and energy efficiency, the design of Hank impresses from every angle. The experience of living here will impress even more.

If you are like most sellers, the thought of selling your home can be daunting. Selling your home is not usually something you do more than once or twice in your life. So how do you know what to expect or more importantly how to sell for the highest price. "When it comes to getting the highest price for your property, there is a tool that will optimise your chances of success. The Buyer Price Declaration is a concept developed by economist, Sir William Vickery - one of several ideas that earned him the Nobel Prize for Economics. This negotiation tool is demonstrably better than a public auction for sellers. With the Buyer’s Price Declaration, no competing buyer is privy to another buyer’s offer. This means that each buyer must offer their highest price without being influenced by what somebody else may have offered." -

Don't mistake the price the agent tells you your home is worth as the price you are going to get for it. "It's important not to mistake the price the agent tells you your home is worth as the price you are going to get for it. The agent's price is only an estimate of what they think the market will pay for your property. It is just an opinion, their opinion, and you don't even know if they are giving you their honest opinion or not. The agent is just trying to win your listing; they are not the buyers for your property. You will only discover the true market value of your property when you put it on the market for sale. Only then will you know what buyers are willing to pay for it." -
