Stronger housing market makes it a great time to buy in Manor Lakes

Latest reports from the Housing Industry Association (HIA) and the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) point to a continued strengthening of the housing market.

According to HIA Economist, Diwa Hopkins, “HIA New Home Sales is the latest among a string of indicators showing an improvement in housing market conditions”.

The comment was in response to the HIA New Home Sales report – a monthly survey of the largest volume home builders in the five largest states, which the HIA considers a leading indicator of future trends in the residential building industry.

“New home sales in the three months to November 2019 were 2.8 per cent higher than in the previous three months,”

 “This recovery in overall housing market conditions looks set to support demand for new homes, with building activity set to stabilise in 2020 before returning to growth further down the track,” concluded Ms Hopkins.

Closer to home, the Wyndham Star Weekly reported on the latest figures released by the REIV that indicate an increase in most median house prices across Wyndham in the December quarter of 2019 House prices back on the rise”, 29 January 2020, page 8.

Leah Calnan, REIV president, said of the rise in December medians: “These are outstanding figures; the Victorian real estate sector continues to soar and set new heights”.
