The 15 best investment tips from our Spring Property Outlook Survey

The 15 best investment tips from our Spring Property Outlook Survey
The 15 best investment tips from our Spring Property Outlook Survey

The recently polled readers of Property Observer are generally quite optimistic about the spring property outlook.

Almost half (48%) expect house prices to rise over the next year. Some 31% expect no change and 21% expect prices to fall.

While seeking capital growth over rental yield (60% to 40%), they are even more expectant of rising rents, with 61% expecting house rents to rise over the next year.

On the financing front most expect interest rates to continue to fall over the next six months. Some 35% of respondents expect interest rates to fall by 25 basis points in the next six months, followed by 28% who expect them to fall by 50 basis points.

Auctions aren't in favour, with 71% saying the best way to sell presently is by private treaty.

Some 84% suggest its a spring buyers' market.

Property Observer, in association with realestateVIEW.com.au, asked readers to give their best property investment tips. Here's 15 that took our fancy.
