Welcome 2017 - Never A Dull Moment

Welcome to 2017! We hope you had a terrific Christmas and New Year period with family and friends.

Here are 3 snippets of property news that you may have missed during the silly season...

1. CoreLogic reported that dwellings in Sydney rose by 16% in value during 2016.

2. The Greater Sydney Commission said we need to build an extra 725,000 dwellings over the next 20 years.

3. The Property Council of NSW said that we need a better, cheaper, faster NSW planning system to make that happen.

Looks like there will be a big push to streamline the planning process, boost supply and make housing more affordable. Never a dull moment in the property industry!
