The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2014-03-14T03:36:35Z "Market is Booming" Say 47% of NSW's Best Real Estate Agents 2014-03-14T03:36:35Z the-market-is-booming-say-47-of-nsw-s-best-real-estate-agents MEDIA RELEASE14 March 2014 Market is Booming Say 47% of NSW's Best Agents “Leading agents around the country have confirmed that the Australian property market has started 2014 with a bang. In NSW 47% of agents surveyed said their local market was booming, followed by 24% in WA and 17% in VIC and the ACT”  “We may however be nearing the peak of the property market cycle, with agents from NSW, VIC and WA expecting growth rates to moderate during 2014.” “Interestingly agents confirmed what few men will acknowledge, that women call the shots on one of life’s big decisions.  Eight times as many agents witness women as the dominant decision maker over their male counterparts. This one finding was fairly consistent across the country.” says Which Real Estate Agent’s Managing Director Thomas Roberts. Every six months Which Real Estate Agent surveys Australia’s best real estate agents to gauge their views on the Australian property market. The 155 agents surveyed are leading agents from Australia’s major population centres and are estimated to have assisted more than 10,000 property owners and interacted with over 400,000 potential buyers during the course of 2013. Selective findings:    ·         Almost half (47%) of NSW agents said their local market was booming followed by 23% in WA and 17% in VIC.  However this fell to 18%, 12% and 9% respectively when asked if it would continue in 2014. ·         Agents forecast increased growth in ACT, QLD, SA and TAS but their colleagues in NSW, VIC and WA are less bullish on 2014 than 2013.   ·         Women call the shots when selling real estate – 32% of Australia’s top agents see women as the primary decision maker when selling property versus only 4% of agents see males taking charge. The remainder of agents witness a collaborative effort. ·         Agents are among Australia’s hardest working professionals, despite their generally negative reputation – the average survey respondent works more than 60 hours per week, putting them amongst the top 10% of Australians for hours worked according to the ABS.  ·         Ignore the seasons, the best time to sell is when convenient – while 21% of agents think spring is the best season in which to sell, the overriding recommendation by 27% of agents is to sell when convenient.  Refer to full press release for other findings including agent commissions, concerns and buyer demographic insights by state.

Selecting the right real estate agent to sell your property, particularly in the current market, is absolutely crucial. From baby boomers downsizing to those upgrading it can mean a different quality of life in retirement or years in additional mortgage repayments. Which Real Estate Agent, a leading real estate agent advisory service, is changing the way real estate agents are selected in Australia. Its free, innovative offering helps sellers identify their best local real estate agents by providing impartial agent performance information not readily available to the Australian public. As Alan Page, a baby boomer who just sold the family home using the service said "it is incredible that this service hasn't been around forever.Without it most property sellers are babes in the wood when it comes to choosing an agent". After spending a frustrating few months with the wrong agent, Alan heard about Which Real Estate Agent's service through his daughter's Facebook account. Which Real Estate Agent provided Alan with his free report that transparently outlined the performance and sales track record of his local real estate agents. This helped him interview and select what was in Alan's words "an excellent agent team". "In stark contrast to the last agent, we had immediate interest in the property with over 15 groups through on the very first open and the property sold in line with the agent's valuation in a month". Which Real Estate Agent solely focuses on matching property vendors with their best local real estate agents. "We are providing much needed help to those selling, what is often their most valuable asset, in today's difficult market" says Thomas Roberts CEO of Which Real Estate Agent.
