Real Estate Trading

Sydney’s hot property market: if you’re looking for a sign to sell your property, this is it!

The Sydney real estate industry continues to boom during restrictions and lockdowns.

The demand for Sydney homes has skyrocketed due to remote work options and people knowing that this is going to start being more of a permanent (or at least semi-permanent) solution going forward.

We’re finding that buyers are out in force looking for an upgrade as they’re spending more time at home than ever before.

So, with the demand for properties expected to keep trending upward, there has never been a better time to consider selling.

Here’s what you need to know.

Why now is a good time to sell your home

Now more than ever, Australians are clamouring to find a great home to resettle in. A home is more than just a building – it’s now a workspace, a classroom, a home gym, a family space and a personal sanctuary.

REA also noted that while the final quarter of the year has always been a great time to sell property ever since 2015, this has changed significantly in 2021. Due to the spike in demand caused by the reaction to changing lifestyle trends and low mortgage rates, our Vendors are listing right now directly into favourable market conditions and achieving strong property sale prices.

At Upstate, we’ve seen double the amount of buyer enquiries in the last month. So, if you’re thinking about selling your property, the perfect buyer is just around the corner.

How do property sales work during the pandemic?

We’re sure you’re wondering about the mechanics of selling a home during COVID-19. Is it safe? Would you have to meet up with a lot of people in the process? Is it compliant with local restrictions?

Fortunately, we’ve had time to adapt to the changes and we pay very close attention to the updates from the NSW Government every day as they transpire. This means you’ll have a team who will keep you safe and well-informed at every step.

For instance, Upstate offers private appointments, virtual inspections and virtual appraisals. This way, you can guarantee that selling your property with us will not only help you make the most out of your investment, but we’re also making sure that you stay safe and are in good hands during the entire process.

Upstate also conducts remote auctions. As part of this, we have the renowned and Australian award-winning auctioneer, Vic Larusso on board. He puts in the same enthusiasm and effort during a remote auction as he does in person. Digital auctions also allow more people to get involved, which increases competition.

“I treat the auction process exactly the same as I do onsite to virtual, it’s all about allowing the buyers to feel comfortable with the transparent process we run in a non-time delayed environment. This allows the agent to achieve the best price for their vendor under the hammer” Vic Lorusso

We’ve designed this auction process to create a seamless experience and give everyone the best chance during the bidding. Most importantly, our property experts are committed to providing a stress-free and rewarding experience for you.

We have achieved great results

Steven and Olivia recently sold their property with us. Here’s what they said about our service:

“Chris and the team from Upstate managed the sale of our house just as the new wave of COVID-19 restrictions landed. They took all of this in their stride and managed to get a great result for our family. The level of communication from the team all the way through the process was excellent and we felt really supported on each of the decisions.

Even though we had to conduct a virtual auction, which wasn’t part of the plan, it was all managed exceptionally well.”
