Is spring still a good time to sell your home?

Spring is Australia’s traditional home selling season, but what does spring 2020 look like in a Covid-19 environment?

Elite Real Estate Services Cairns are still seeing plenty of local activity across the Cairns region which is encouraging.  We have also experienced a substantial increase in enquiry from interstate buyers looking for a sea/tree change. Karl Latham, Director and Principal of Elite said “Why wouldn’t they? Covid free, fresh air, open space, tropical rainforest, and affordable living. Most are working at home remotely anyway, so why not work remotely from our beautiful region in stunning Tropical North Queensland?”

Agents, vendors and buyers have always looked forward to this time of year which often brings peaks of listings and enquiries. It’s predicted that spring 2020 will be no different.

As more people work from home, spend increased quality time with family and have no choice but to explore their own backyard, where we live is now more important than ever. Realestate.com.au have reported the largest ever volume of buyer searches in Australia’s southern regions, some areas with a 91% increase.

The desire for a sea/tree change coupled with the built up Covid demand, record low interest rates and easier access to borrowing is set to make for a strong spring selling season.
