Locally we have seen activity ramped up before Christmas with more listings coming on to the market, more buyers making offers and more sales taking place. Vendors are being more realistic with their expectations so I anticipate that 2018 will be a busy year with the first quarter anticipated to be exceptionally active.

If you thinking of selling, renting, leasing or buying before Christmas or in January make sure you give the team at PropertyNest a call as we will be working all the way through except for the public holidays.

We would like to take the opportunity to wish you and your families a safe and happy holiday. 

Seasons Greeting from Stevan Vuk-Luboya and the whole team at PropertyNest Estate Agents, Sydney Olympic Parks Boutique Property Services.
