Over the last few weeks we have seen some of the most devastating, gut wrenching and heartbreaking images of natural disasters and war from around the world and here at home. Stories of true heroism, selflessness and community strength light up the darkest of moments. It is difficult to absorb the chaos and confusion we are seeing.

This week the media is playing out the recrimination narrative between governments, officials and flood victims. Plenty of questions left unanswered. Soaring petrol prices, global uncertainty and an impending Federal Election. Oh and don’t forget Easter is just around the corner.

2022 promises to be a very interesting year. The staggering price growth seen since the beginning of the pandemic is unlikely to continue in its current form across all markets. House price growth in 2022 has already began slowing but that is not unexpected.

We are seeing more investors entering the market. Rental values rising and vacancy rates on the decline. As international boarders open we will welcome 200,000 new visa holders to Australia who are likely to be renters in the first instance, increasing further the demand for rental properties in major cities.

Many investors are taking full advantage of the low interest rate conditions – however a cautionary look to the future suggests potential rate hikes, loan repayments & affordability be factored in.

Last week the MyPlace Team leased 5 properties in 5 days!

We are receiving multiple applications for almost every property.

What does this mean for investment property owners?

We have qualified tenants that are ready to move ASAP that have missed out on properties in the area.

We are using our tenant database to lease properties off portal. This is saving owners significant advertising costs. Our average days vacant remains at 1 DAY!

When compared to other agencies in Sydney whose average days vacant are 25 DAYS MyPlace owners are seriously saving.

We are talking almost $2000 saved by renting with My Place for some Landlords.

Has your property been sitting vacant on the market? Are you getting the results you want from your current agency?
