The Marshall Group: Monthly Property Market Update – February 2024

February has been a standout month for The Marshall Group, as we’ve continued to redefine excellence in the local property market with our strategic innovation, steadfast dedication, and deep commitment to community involvement. Highlighting our leadership in Sydney’s Upper North Shore’s premium property market, we achieved significant milestones with the first sales in both Pymble and St Ives to surpass the $5,000,000 mark this year. These achievements not only affirm our leading position but also our ability to deliver exceptional results in the prestige property sector. Moving forward, our focus is unwaveringly set on providing our clients with the essential insights and support they need to confidently navigate the ever-changing property market landscape.

Local Property Market

The vibrant start to Sydney’s auction season has translated into a flurry of activity across the Upper North Shore. Market dynamics are shifting, with a noticeable decrease in total property listings reaching a 12-month low in January. This scarcity is paralleled by a resurgence in buyer interest, marked by increased attendance at open homes and a spike in contract requests for new listings. This renewed enthusiasm, especially with the commencement of the new school year, is poised to inject further vitality into the market, fostering a positive outlook for the months ahead.

Sydney Property Market

Sydney’s auction market has energetically kicked off with CoreLogic highlighting a preliminary clearance rate of 76.3% across 562 properties in the first week of February. This vitality is underscored by sustained high auction clearance rates, consistently exceeding 80% in the subsequent weeks, showcasing the undeniable momentum of Sydney’s market. Accompanied by a 0.5% uplift in Sydney’s property values throughout February, these figures point to a robust market characterised by sustainable growth. The convergence of these positive indicators signals a flourishing market atmosphere, ripe with optimistic prospects for growth.

Australian Property Market

On a national scale, the Home Value Index (HVI) figures for January indicated a national increase of 0.4% for the month, showcasing the resilience and ongoing recovery of the Australian property market. With a focus on Sydney’s property values and the national perspective, it’s evident that the market is on a steady path of growth, supported by strong auction results and property value increases.

Economy Update

The economic landscape has seen significant developments with the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) holding interest rates steady at 4.35%. This decision, informed by a slowdown in inflation to 4.1% pa in the December Quarter, suggests a stabilising economic climate. Additionally, the anticipation around the RBA’s next Monetary Policy Decision on March 19, coupled with Australian Government housing data indicating resilience amidst rising living costs and interest rates, paints a picture of cautious optimism for the economy and the property market alike.
