REIV Residential Property Sales Update – March Quarter 2021

 

The latest data released by the REIV for the March 2021 Quarter really demonstrated the strong performance of the Victorian property market in the first quarter of the year, and since the hard lockdown ceased on 28th September 2020. It’s no surprise that the real estate sector is firing at the moment with all-time low interest rates. Buyers have also been accumulating savings throughout the 2020 lockdowns and they are eager to change-up their living space after a year of being house bound as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
