2020 has been a tumultuous year, to say the least, and some would argued that it presents a unique opportunity in the property market.

In the recent 2020 PIPA Property Investor Sentiment Survey that gathered insights from nearly 1,100 property investors in August, two-thirds of investors believe now is a good time to invest in residential property. On top of that, 77% of investors agree that any potential falling of house prices will not cause them to put their investment plans on hold. The key finding is that majority who participated in this survey remain optimistic about the months ahead.

Record-low interest rates and First Home Buyer Incentives
Interest rates has been historically low for some time and it would appear that home loans in Australia are possibly the cheapest they have ever been. With various first home buyer incentives such as $10,000 first home owner’s grant, $25,000 HomeBuilder Grant and new stamp duty exemptions, it is pretty clear that the earliest buyers will benefit most as soon as they can afford to.

So… is 2020 a good year to buy property?
