The Real Estate Market in Sorrento for March

If you ask any Real Estate Agent right now they will tell you that business is slow and that there isn’t many new listings out there and sales are few and far between.

If you ask the buyers right now they will tell you that prices are too high but they are still looking and waiting for the perfect house in their price range.

So what does this information tell you, if your thinking of selling? That there are still buyers out there looking to buy but they are waiting for properties to drop in price and are not moving out of their price range. This wait time is allowing them to be ready financially and giving them opportunity to know exactly what they want and where they think houses should sit in today’s market.

I have many buyers waiting with all different types of price ranges, ready to go ahead and make that purchase on their perfect home. Is your home my buyer’s perfect home? Give me a call to find out!

Here is what the Real Estate Market in Sorrento looked like for March!

Miss out on buyers or risk an infringement, home open signs have a curfew?

Strictly speaking, NO temporary advertising signs are allowed of any sort without a licence. However, the council allow some leeway for home open signs. The actual rule they enforce is that signs are allowed no more than 30 minutes prior to and 30 minutes after a home open. This INCLUDES signs placed outside the sellers houses (even on their front lawn if it’s outside the boundary of their property).

Other real estate agents have received 5 x $100 infringements over 2 weekends for placed home open signs put on the front lawns of sellers houses. They appealed the fines but they were upheld and they had to pay.

If you place signs actually on an owners property (ie within the boundary) the rangers cannot touch them BUT they are considered a commercial advertising sign and as such they need a licence. The owners could, in theory, be fined for placing them without a license.

Unfortunately, once someone starts reporting signs it tends to escalate like it did in other Suburbs. There are now no home open signs out more than 30 minutes before or 30 minutes after a home open.

Bottom line is if you place signs outside the allowed time periods you risk an infringement.

It’s frustrating but that’s the rules.

Some Agents have written to me said they have had this battle going for the last 5 years.

If an Agent is successful and had lots of signs around that is what will happen like it did with my friend last week. Unfortunately this is the result of one or two local agents becoming rather jealous. In an attempt to reduce the successful Agents presence on the streets they started calling the council about him or her .

Since I wrote my fears to other Agents their response was: “They are surprised that this is happening only NOW  in Hillarys and along the coast”. A few agents seem to have sign out on that road 24/7. They don’t know how they got away with it for this long

Any ideas what we can do?
