Stand out from the pack this New Year

Happy Christmas!

Before the silly season kicks into overdrive Richard Matthews Real Estate would like to wish everyone a very happy, safe Christmas and prosperous New Year.   If you are considering selling it’s never too early to get the ball rolling.   Listing in the first months of a new year is a great way for your property to stand out from the crowd, with fewer listings on the market to compete against.  You also tend to attract motivated buyers.  If you are unsure about selling our team would love the opportunity to have a chat with you and provide you with your free property report.

We are always here for you.  Contact us online, call 9642 4288 or buzz Richard Baini on 0438 389 333 or Matthew Everingham on 0402 423 893.

Psssst: the agents everyone’s talking about

Half a million above a reserve just how good is that

Richard Matthews Real Estate is the agency making waves throughout the inner west with their phenomenal sales results and reputation for first class service, but you probably already knew that.

Yesterday the Inner West Courier published a feature article Half a million above a reserve: just how good is that? reporting on the auction of 25a Wallis Avenue, Strathfield that Richard Matthews sold for $1.9 million, a stellar $500k above the reserve price. Also mentioned was the outstanding sale of a humble Californian bungalow at 8 Moala Street, Concord West that sold prior to auction for a very handsome $1,020,000.

The Sydney Morning Herald also did a write-up on the amazing Wallis Avenue auction in their article Quirky homes smash reserves and the Herald Sun featured it in the story Sydney resilient as national home values fall for second straight week.

Inner west’s most affordable suburbs

IMMACULATE & AFFORDABLE! 7/32-36 Short Street, Homebush

Matthew Everingham recently chat to about Sydney’s hottest market, the inner west.  First home buyers are finding it increasingly difficult to get into the market, yet affordable suburbs still exist, such as the immaculate two bedroom unit at 7/32-36 Short St, Homebush going to auction on Saturday, April 12 at 4pm.

RP Data recently documented Homebush West, Enfield, Concord West and Homebush as the most affordable suburbs for units with median prices under $500,000.

When asked which suburbs offer the best value for apartments Mr Everingham mentioned Croydon Park, Belfield, Homebush and Homebush West.

“They’re the remaining pockets where you can find property that’s $500,000 and under. Certainly when they do come up, there is competition for them,” he said.

“They are convenient areas and there’s great accessibility to transport. The city is not too far away.

“These suburbs are surrounded by some very high end areas, say Strathfield for instance … and they are looking for areas that are accessible to where they’ve grown up and still represent value.”
