The RBA continues to hold rates at 0.25 percent. It is expected that low rates will stay around for up to three years. This is the RBA's estimate for the recovery time of the Australian economy.

The spring property season is here

While the property market has been unsettled in the wake of COVID-19, many will be watching on to see if the property market springs back into action once the spring selling season kicks off.

Typically, spring is the busiest time of year for the real estate market, and there’s a good chance that this year won’t be any different.

Regaining confidence

While some people will continue to have nervousness about the property market, others are regaining their confidence and we are seeing a lot more interest in both buying and selling.

More people are coming to terms with the new normal as it impacts their day to day. For some people, the savings from lack of travel and social spending means a portion of the market are now ready to act on their property dreams.

For now, the property market itself remains restrained but steady, as lower supply keep values stable.

Moderate drops in property values were seen in the major metropolitan markets in the past months. CoreLogic daily data noted that in August, New South Wales and Queensland appear to be clawing their way back up to positive territory.
