With the 4 big banks upping their interest rates by 0.20% and some smaller lenders following suit. I'm interested to see your thoughts on buyer competition? Realestate.com.au released an article about the trends and believe that it will only increase buyer activity/competition. I have to agree personally, I think it's an eye opener to those that are taking there time to purchase that interest rates are not going to stay low forever. I believe, being an agent that we will see a busy christmas and early 2016 with many buyers trying o get in the market now and lock in interest rates. Can also see many people selling and upgrading in that time too, making use of the equity and current rates. Interested to hear your thought? (i'm located on the Gold Coast).
