According to Census figures show an increasing number of people choosing to be tenants instead of owners. It means it is good to invest property for those people who are looking for a home to rent. It is advantage also for the investors because many people cannot afford to buy a house and rental market will become more tighten. I think it will drive the housing market to become more stable and more competitive. This is the good start for next year’s recovery.

Based on the Latest Genworth Homebuyer Confidence index, “which measures sentiment among those who own or are thinking of buying a property, rose 2.1 index points to 98.4 points in September.” Basically, Australia’s homebuyers believe now, this is the time to buy a home and it shows confidence in property market. Interest Rate cuts influenced why home owners and buyers are more confident now in the property market. However, property market will never become stagnant and house prices may increase also. I think, increasing confident about property market, fair house prices and reasonable interest rate may be the real factors that property market is improving. Anyhow, this is a good time to invest or to buy a home.

According to Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA), “There was a 24% jump in the number of properties sold across metropolitan Perth in the past nine weeks when compared with the same period last year.” We all know that investors are returning to Perth Property market and there was an increase in the number of inquiries from investors. There’s balance equilibrium in a property market because prices goes down and rentals goes up. High rental encourages more to homebuyers to buy than to rent a house.
According to President David Airey, “the number of rental properties has rebounded to 2507 after dropping to just 2105 in March-another sign that investors and first homebuyers were active.” I think there was a modest growth last March and there was growing confidence in property market. Therefore, property market has pretty returned to normal and improving.

Last March 7, 2012, Real estate Institute of Australia’s (REIA) December quarter, Deposit Power Housing Affordability Report has recorded improvement in housing affordability in 2011. Homebuyers are entered in the market but nowadays potential homebuyers are dropping because of the economic uncertainty and interest rate rise. Is the Interest rates affects housing affordability? Is the key factor why buyers are scared off to purchase?
According to Deposit Power’s National Manager, Keith Levy, “Interest rates have a big impact on affordability for existing homeowners and can also be major deterrent for those looking to enter for the first time.” In a positive side of the picture, first home buyers have experienced a small increase and are returning to the market in which consumers’ confidence will be back and hoping that there will be changes to improved affordability. Interest rate cuts really help in growing confidence in property market.
