Brisbane

Welcome to nestegg’s weekly round-up of the bricks-and-mortar stories that we think will be most relevant to you, whether as a first home buyer, a seasoned investor or anyone in between!  

To compile this list, not only are we taking a look at the week’s most-read stories and the news that matters, but we are also curating it to include stories from our sister platforms that could have an impact on your buying, selling or investment journey, no matter where you find yourself on the property ladder.

  1. Do’s and don’ts of the HomeBuilder scheme

  1. Selling high to buy low: Is now the ‘golden’ opportunity?

We’re about to see the best buying opportunities in the last decade, according to Tom Panos, who has said: “Stock level is flying in. I’ve booked so many auctions.”

  1. Online where it’s at for former sales director

Proving a pandemic is as good a time as any to launch a new business venture, a former LJ Hooker sales director has kicked off a new online agency to upend the traditional notions of real estate.

Alex Lumsden is taking up the helm of Lumsden Agency, an online, digital-first marketing company with a focus on visual marketing and digital advertising.

  1. The Agency hits the Central West

The Agency has expanded to the Central West region of NSW after eyeing an opportunity too valuable to pass up – with a particular focus on Dubbo, Orange, Bathurst and Mudgee.

The move sees highly regarded local agent Monica Henley and business development manager Justine Campbell welcomed to The Agency’s fold.

  1. Lenders exercise caution with high-density postcodes

Investors planning to borrow up to their maximum capacity, rely on bonuses or commissions, or purchase property in high-density postcodes have been warned that restrictive lending policies established in response to COVID-19 are unlikely to ease anytime soon. 

  1. WEBCAST: Brisbane off the back of COVID-19

COVID-19 has featured much in commentaries on Sydney and Melbourne’s property markets, but the same can’t be said for another east coast capital.

Phil Tarrant and Melinda Jennison break down the Brisbane market – from the worst of the pandemic to now.
