Forecast for the 09-10 Financial Year:
We envisage that continuing first home owner interest and buying power will keep the market buoyant in East Melbourne for the remainder of 2009. Dependant on bank interest rates, we could experience a flattening of the market in 2010 in the plus $500,000 sector. Mum and Dad investors could well make a comeback in 2010 once first home owners lose their puff and buying power. 1 Powlett St offers a unique buying opportunity in an expensive blue chip neighbourhood which should cushion it from too many market fluctuations.
