Geelong homes for sale and the property market in general is back in full swing following the Christmas break.
According to economist Dr Andrew Wilson, the property market in Geelong and the surf coast is predicted to increase by 3% for 2015.
QBE’s Annual Australian Housing outlook, researched and prepared by BIS Shrapnel, details that for 2014-2017 a combination of further price growth, tightening interest rates in the next 12 months and an ease of dwelling deficiency will weigh on the residential market and cause price growth to slow across most cities for 2015/2016.
Regardless of the various research reports and predictions, the housing market is resilient and continues to grow.
Buying or investing in property is a huge decision and one that requires a lot of homework!!
So…. Where do you start when you are looking to enter the property market, invest, upgrade or downsize?
The obvious start is knowing your budget, obtaining pre-approval for a loan and checking any availability for grants or potential tax savings.
The next step is beginning your research. What areas would you like to live in? Do you need to be close to public transport, schools, shopping centres? What are the demographics like for the preferred suburbs? What is the current market price for the area? It is really important that you get a feel for the area and see a variety of properties before making any major decisions.
I mentioned in my last blog for 2014 that Jason O’Neill Townhouse Builder is releasing his next project. Two Townhouses in beautiful Highton Geelong.  These townhouses will be sold off the plan which means huge savings on stamp duty.
Highton is a very pretty residential suburb of Geelong with boutique local shops, cafes, bike tracks and Queens Park. There is a lot of development currently taking place in the newer area of Highton including the construction of a major supermarket. Highton’s demographics consist of established and older couples and families (41.1% of the population of Highton). The annual growth for Highton is an impressive 8% and there is an average market demand with about 45 visits per property compared to 51 visits per Victorian properties.
The townhouses are located  in the older area of Highton, in a secluded and private court. Check out the google map to explore the area and see how much the suburb has to offer.,+Highton+VIC+3216/@-38.1504591,144.3172801,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x6ad413b906a0011f:0x39463101d33dfb71 
As usual, the Townhouses will be built to the usual very high quality standards of Jason O’Neill’s work and boast two outdoor entertaining areas perfect to take in the view over queens park and rival views of other surrounding Geelong homes.
The benefits of buying off the plan means that there is a low initial capital outlay to give you the time to save and/or sell current property.
The stamp duty savings are worth a second mention along with the 7 year builder guarantee that comes with any newly built home in Victoria. There are a lot of pro’s to buying off the plan for either a first home purchase or an investment.
