44 Pacific Avenue, Anna Bay Sneak Peek

Are you looking for home thats just a little different?

This 4 bedroom 1950′s style renovated beach house is in the $390,000-$460,000 price range. It’s so close to the surf, you can hear the waves crashing at night time. Some features are:

  • 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, side access, 1 car garaging(could easily extend to create a very large garage plus “mans cave”)
  • high ceilings, renovated, massive parents retreat with waterviews
  • walk to patrolled surf beach and rock pools
  • well built solid home

I really love how unique this home is and it is refreshing to see huge bedrooms and high ceilings as this gives a feeling of space.

What Will Port Stephens Property Do in 2012?

Port Stephens Property Prices 2012

The Really Big Question On Every Ones Lips About Port Stephens Property Is…

Will Interest Rates Declining Affect The Port Stephen Property Market?

July and August in 2011 were two of the quietest months in Port Stephens Property since the 2008 Financial Crisis. On the back of that, the Government announced that they would abolish the first buyers grant effectively at the end of 2011. This kick started the sluggish Port Stephens Property market.

So Why Has The Ending Of The First Buyers Grant in 2011 Affected The Port Stephens Property Market?

The Port Stephens Property market has taken off again since the announcement that first home buyers will no longer receive the first home buyers grant if they haven’t exchanged on a property by the end of September 2012. First home buyers and investors have previously been sitting on their hands with uncertainty about the property market on the back of a shaky share market, threats interest rates would go up, and the cost of living increasing.

When first home buyers start buying because they wanted to captilise on the last opportunity for FREE money, it pushed investors to start buying. When first home buyers start buying, then the investors start buying. This causes a ripple effect up the price ranges. The Port Stephens Property Market ripple effect begins to slow when you get above the $800,000 range with a smaller amount of buyers and property prices re-adjusting in this price range to suit the buyers expectation of value.

What Will Happen To Port Stephens Property Values As Interest Rates Go Down?

It must be noted that they only reason that Interest rates are going down is that the property market is slowly softening(dropping) and by lowering Interest Rates, the property market gains more confidence. With that said Port Stephens property is cheap in comparison to Sydney, Melbourne and even Canberra prices so what is likely to happen into 2012 is the market will remain confident and while prices wont be going up, buyers will have to move quickly on properties that are priced and marketed right.How Interest Rates Affect Port Stephens Real Estate

“If rates do remain on hold, or begin to fall(the prediction is they will fall 1 percent by June 2012), we would expect to see Australia’s housing market find a base and begin to generate capital gains again. If the RBA has really come to the end of its tightening cycle – which we would find surprising given the high core inflation revealed over the last six months – 2011-12 will likely be judged one of the best buying windows seen in quite some time. The turning point will arrive when otherwise hawkish Australian consumers accept the notion that rates are not going to inexorably increase,” Mr Joye said. (Source RP data)

I believe the next 6 months represents a great opportunity for sellers if they have Port Stephens Property to sell.


Real Estate Training Shocking Truth

Discovered In Real Estate Training “Intelligent Design And The Butterfly Effect Helps You Make More Money In Real Estate”

Real Estate Training

Real Estate Training Helps Your Agent Understand The Butterfly Effect Properly And Avoids Under Selling Your Home

I often teach agents that quality is not an accident and if they want to develop a business that has people calling them wanting to do business, it is about doing all the little things right.

So in Real Estate Training I often refer back to the butterfly effect.

“What On Earth Is The Butterfly Effect?”

In Real Estate training The Butterfly Effect is referring to the little things that add up to create a massive outcome.

It was discovered by a weather expert by the name of Lorenz who reduced weather patterns into a series of formulas that in turn predicted the weather.

One day Lorenz got a bit lazy and decided to take a short cut and rounded off the data he put in from .123456 to .123 thinking the 1/1000 of a decimal point wouldn’t make much of a difference in the predictions the computer printed out.

How wrong he was.

It made a huge difference! The tiny change of input had made a massive change in output and has been described as “sensitive dependence on initial conditions, or The Butterfly Effect.

A butterfly moving its wings on one side of the world(the .0001 of wind pressure) and tiny change of downward wind pressure on one side of the world had the power to transform the weather conditions on the other side of the world.

How The Butterfly Effect Will Help You Make Money In Real Estate

The smallest of input can make massive differences in output in anything you do but lets look at Real Estate.  For Example these tiny outputs from an agent make all the difference to the end result:

Real Estate Agent

  1. Being on time to appointments
  2. Reviewing the price and marketing weekly for the first 4 weeks
  3. Doing 10 prospecting calls before 10
  4. Doing an hour of exercise per day
  5. Writing a to do list every day
  6. Writing their goals out twice a day
  7. Decluttering once a month
  8. Having buyers categorized into price ranges on their database for quick access
  9. Doing regular training (once a month)
  10. Having a  real estate coach

An agent who is doing all these things can reap huge dividends for you as a seller and the Butterfly Effect from activities that you may deam not super relevent will stagger you.

Just like the small changes in the formula for weather  input produces massive changes in output , so to will small input changes in Real Estate create massive differences in output.

This simple but powerful principle from My Real Estate Training Manual has helped thousands of people to success in Real estate transactions, whether buyers, sellers, or Real Estate Agents.

How often have you seen a for sale sign up with one agent and another gets the property and it is sold instantly. That is no accident.

In my Real Estate training I have also discovered the butterfly effect can pay huge dividends for buyers if they buy the right property.

How Intelligent Design Can Make You Money When You Buy Property

Certain properties are more suited to certain demographics and geographical areas attract certain buyers based on the lifestyle that area provides.

For example Port Stephens attracts a lot of “Empty Nesters” looking to downsize and do a bit of travelling.

They want quality and preferably a view and they would like a separate living area with guest accommodation for family and friends who they have moved away from.

As this is a final property move before they move into a retirement home, they would like to be able to live on one level and not have to negotiate stairs.

If you enjoyed this blog, why not register at the top right of my screen and get updates, interviews and real estate tips as they happen.

These are usually not accessible to the general public. A property that has all these benefits in an area like Port Stephens would be classified as Intelligent Design.

I’ll finish my Real Estate training today with a movie that showcases some Intelligent Design for the Port Stephens area, have a great day!
