Demographics: Tucked away in Flinders Lane, Sackville house caters to an almost exclusively Owner occupied clientele. The property is well suited to people looking to live or work in the city but prefer to be off the busy streets. A number of the units are dual occupied with owners wishing to use the unit as a second home.

Near-by Construction Underway: 260 million dollar plans to restore and extend the Historic Windsor Hotel have drawn mixed reactions, with some questioning the impact the 25 storey extension located at the rear of the property would have on the heritage feel of the Paris end of Melbourne. With construction slated to commence late 2010 it is sure to remain a discussion point.

27 Flinders Lane Forecast for the 09-10 Financial Year: Whilst early stagnation in 2009 caused by the GFC saw a reduction in clearance rates, confidence is returning to the high end market.

We envisage that continuing first home owner interest and buying power will keep the market buoyant in Melbourne for the remainder of 2009. With interest rates tipped to continue to rise, we could experience a leveling of the general market in 2010 particularly in the pre $500,000 range. Investors could well make a comeback in 2010 once first home owners lose their puff and buying power.
