Bunbury Market Update
How is the market in Bunbury? Well when looking at the market we have to look at price point of properties. Has the Market dropped? Well yes after the mining tax it has been a very fragile market. But this is not new news! There was a flood of properties on the market to begin when people had no choice but to sell. Now we are seeing that there are properties that have been sitting on the market for long periods of time. Why is this? Because either the owners have high expectations or they have been promised a price by an agent to gain the listing. It is so important when listing to gain a proper understanding of where the market is and as an agent we do have to have tough conversations. However, this is part of our job and we are here to help the owner achieve their end goal. Another aspect is when you look at the statistics below the market has been changing quite rapidly, which means that when you list your property and have it listed for 3-4 months the market has changed but, have you updated your asking price to reflect this?
