Sydney’s Property Market Turns, Favours the Buyers

News reports say Sydney is nearing the point of the property cycle where after years as a sellers’ market, it’s becoming a buyers’ market. The shift to the buyer’s favour comes because there’s plenty of stock for sale, accompanied by a flailing auction success rate, and vendors prepared to drop their prices to secure their sale.

Last month Sydney property values sat in negative annual growth territory, according to CoreLogic, albeit down 3.4 per cent after around 75 per cent growth since 2012. Cooley Auctions’ auctioneer Damien Cooley recently suggested a healthy auction market, where both sellers and buyers had equal bargaining positions, was between 50 per cent and 60 per cent. That’s where the market currently sits. Cooley suggests it becomes a buyers’ markets when clearance rates become less than 50 per cent.

Rather than being the price leader, Australia’s largest and most expensive property market has suddenly become a price laggard. Prices are falling, in contrast to what’s being seen in most other parts of the country. Affordability constraints, tighter lending standards, reduced interest from local and foreign investors, along with increased supply hitting the Sydney market, have all contributed to what has been a sharp reversal of the trends of recent years.
