237-239 Flinders Lane Forecast for the 09-10 Financial Year: Whilst early stagnation in 2009 caused by the GFC saw a reduction in clearance rates we envisage that continuing first home owner interest and buying power will keep the market buoyant in Melbourne.

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 have started to make a comeback in 2010 with first home owners lose their puff and buying power.
