Looking to sell? Now is the time

DESPITE the ongoing challenges faced by the real estate market, buyers continue to seek out properties in this area, displaying strong confidence in the region’s potential and future growth.

Recent activity has proven that not just houses, but units also are in hot demand throughout Port Stephens.

In just two weeks the market has had multiple apartment sales, with prices ranging from the mid $500,000s to more than $1 million.

This run of unit sales is a problem for cashed-up buyers, because there is now not enough property for sale to meet demand.

Local sales consultants are familiar with almost every unit block in the area and can give accurate estimates for tenanted property, even without a physical inspection, if landlords don’t wish to inconvenience tenants.

People considering selling units, houses or land – from Fingal Bay to Lemon Tree Passage – are urged to consider their local agents, Nelson Bay Real Estate and Tilligerry Real Estate.

Nelson Bay Real Estate is offering free appraisals with a 24-hour turn around.

A few examples include of how well things are selling consider these properties:
