Welcoming A New Year & Our St Ives Office

Written by Matthew Bourn
With a fresh year underway, the team at MB are continuing our focus on providing exceptional service and expertise to our clients.

Looking back on 2017, we started to see the market tighten. However, whilst stock levels retracted, they actually began to normalise back to what they were before the recent property boom. Sydney's property market has enjoyed exponential growth over the last few years and it was only a matter of time before we headed for a slow down.

We started to see the effects of the banks tightening credit, whilst money from overseas and lending to offshore buyers also became more difficult. Interest rates remained at historically low levels and affordability continued to get increasingly harder. Whilst these changes to the market pose challenges, at MB we see it as a positive change that the real estate industry needed. Markets like these put our skills to better use and more than ever, the quality of your real estate agent becomes paramount.

At McConnell Bourn, we understand the need to adapt and change with these markets. We see it as an opportunity to fine-tune and perfect our skills in negotiating, selling and marketing. This adaptability combined with our team of talented and like-minded individuals, who work collaboratively together, is what sees us continually help our clients achieve their goals.

2018 will see MB continue to introduce new ideas and strategies to ensure our clients not only have a wonderful real estate experience but their property is kept at the forefront of buyers with innovative marketing approaches. This year is also particularly exciting as we open our fourth office in St Ives, and eagerly look forward to further servicing the residents of St Ives.
