Innovation award winning agency founder shares his 2021 predictions



On Friday night, Ayre Real Estate took out the Innovation Award at the prestigious Real Estate Institute of New South Wales (REINSW) Awards for Excellence in 2020. Held virtually due to Covid, the 18 month old agency group, founded by Adrian Wilson and alongside business partners Craig Donohue and Kate Sommervelle, were awarded for their innovative approach to the Sydney City apartment market.
 
Ayre Real Estate launched in June 2019, with offices in Sydney’s Hyde Park and Millers Point precincts with a promise to deliver an apartment focused agency for the city and inner-city apartment market. Earlier this year they were also awarded Best New Office of the Year in the national Real Estate Business Awards.
 
Adrian Wilson says, “We’re thrilled to have taken out the Innovation Award this year. Our approach to the Sydney City property market is unique and being apartment-focused really allows us to provide our clients whether they be vendors, buyers, landlords, or tenants with the highest level of service and expertise in the area. I’m really proud of what our growing team has been able to achieve to date and of course be recognised by our industry peers. Here’s to a bigger and better 2021!”
 
Adrian’s top five predictions for 2021:
  • Clearance rates to stay strong (circa 70-75%) provided stock remains around the same levels. 
  • Government stimulus and interest rates to be attractive and spur buyers to act.
  • Improvement of Covid cases linked to more people out and about looking at property as an investment option.
  • Less income being spent on travel and entertainment so more disposable income being spent on renovating or upgrading.
  • Market stabilising until the end of job keeper and mortgage relief.
