Wait now until the New Year if you can to buy your new property

As the year comes to a close, the property market will slow down in the Southern Highlands with new listings until the New Year, so unless you have found your perfect home already, it might be wise to hold off if possible until the beginning of February 2016.

Most real estate agents in the Southern Highlands take the Christmas and New Year break and opportunity to close their doors until the new year. So too the solicitors and conveyancers. They usually take two weeks off and therefore settlement will take a little longer, normally two months.
