More than half of all real estate sellers who had signed a contract of property sale this year had already rejected a higher offer, new data released by Ray White Group has revealed.

“To us, this is an incredible statistic,” said Brian White, joint chairman of Ray White Group, in his monthly White Paper report.

“In a profession that prides its purposefulness in achieving the highest possible price for our sellers, it comes as a shock – is there a better way that we can communicate with our sellers the

clearly painful when that rejection leads to even further disappointment later on.”

Mr White said his company was seeing evidence of a more positive market. He pointed to the company’s “high profile” Broadbeach office making four sales in July – each under $200,000 – for properties that hadn’t realised that amount for more than a decade.

He added that recent talk of interest rate cuts, followed by St George’s decision to lower fixed interest rates, fueled an immediate and dramatic uptick in buyer interest.

“The uplift in open for inspection numbers, following on these two actions, was dramatic,” he said. “So much so, that our three office Aspley group, in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, reported an all-time record – and this in a market (Brisbane) widely proclaimed to be in dire straits.”

Listed above and below are some photos of a ‘quiet’ listing I have in Fairhaven. Sometimes, property owners decide that they don’t want to market their property, have For Sale signs, hoards of sticky beaks coming through etc etc. In fact you might be surprised to know how many properties we sell ‘Off the market’ in circumstances just like this.

This stunning and unique property is quietly listed for around $1.6m and sits on 10 acres in Fairhaven with ocean views. Unfortunately the view shot here doesn’t really do it justice, but it is quite a lovely view in a delightfully serene bush setting.

If you would like to know more about this property, please do not hesitate to contact me.

See you in Our Backyard.
