Can you believe the headlines? Not this time
"If you can believe the headlines, Australian property values are falling. The thing is, you can’t believe the headlines. In most of our major markets, values are not falling at all." - Terry Ryder (June 2018)
The press are stating that national values are falling - but if you look past the scaremongering and look closely at the true data you will see the following:
- Regional areas overall are rising.
- Five of the eight capital cities are rising.
- The only significant market showing annual decline is Sydney, but the size of that market is dragging down the overall average.
Inspired by that reality, Terry puts Newcastle/Hunter Region in his Top 10 leading cities with growth trajectories in 2018. He says
"The City of Newcastle has been one of the nation’s outstanding markets recently. Values overall have increased in double digits and many suburbs have grown their median house prices by over 20 percent. The local economy is thriving and the affordability comparison with Sydney has helped. Now the growth is rippling out to nearby areas, including the towns of the Hunter region."
This means the Hunter Region is the perfect place to invest in property.
Tony took his time to meet my requirements
When looking for a property for my parents, I was introduced to Tony. After I described my requirements, he took the time to show me areas that fulfilled my requirements, and then specific locations, floor plans and similar new homes that he believed, based on my criteria, would be suitable. Thank you Tony.
Nothing but wonderful!
My venture into my first home on the coast was made easy by the support from Tony and his team. They were nothing but wonderful!
Willing to go the extra mile
Tony and his team were willing to go the extra mile to show us properties in new and growing areas that would be suitable to include in our investment portfolio. Following our earlier success in securing a new build on land in the Newcastle region, we were keen to investigate other locations which would provide capital growth and good rental return with a low vacancy factor. His team thoroughly researched all those requirements and provided great options.

Making Life Easy for us Landlords!
Tony and his team assisted us in buying a new off-the-plan home for investment purposes. We were given plenty of information on the location and trends in the area, and the types of properties that were popular with tenants. Tony has many trusted contacts in real estate and associated industries, and referred us to a quantity surveyor who has helped us claim a lot more depreciation than we thought we could, and to a great property manager that is making our life easy for us as landlords. It’s been a very successful relationship!
