MCELWAINE'S STELLAR YEAR!


2015 was an interesting year for the Hunter's property market. The exceptional returns of 2014 and early 2015 gave way to more moderate results in the wake of a softening economy courtesy of the downturn in the mining industry.  Yet despite all this, McElwaine enjoyed a stellar year with 40 sales and several more moving towards a sale in early 2016. Several sales saw record prices including $1.270m for a 230 acre rural lifestyle/agri-business property at Gresford, $1.080m for a 23 acre rural lifestyle property at Paterson and $350,000 for a 3 bedroom residence on 702sqm in Bendolba. Of particular interest was the geographic spread of sales with McElwaine now in demand in Stroud, Dungog, Wallarobba, Clarence Town, Vacy, Duns Creek, Martins Creek, Paterson, Mindaribba, Largs, Bolwarra, Bolwarra Heights, Lorn, East Maitland, Brandy Hill and Millfield.  In response to the high demand for our services in the Lower Hunter, we have now expanded our sales team to assist clients in Te...

2016 - THE YEAR AHEAD


2015 was a year of substantial movement within the Hunter property market, the region earning the mantle of the fastest growing area outside Sydney. Buyers flocked to the Hunter to take advantage of the superb lifestyle on offer with beautiful beaches at the doorstep and close proximity to the area's world renowned wineries and tourist sites. The RBA's decision to hold interest rates at a record low of 2% - in place for a record seven months now -- delivered a sense of certainty that inspired buyers to plunge their money into property where housing affordability is far superior to that of Sydney. The prediction for 2016 is that the strong lift in confidence shown by buyers in 2015 will continue, so despite the downturn in the mining industry, vendors will continue to reap steady rewards, but not at the dizzying levels of 2014 and early 2015. And for buyers, the old adage -- you get more bang for your buck -- certainly applies! For investors, the Hunter's previously impossible to penet...
