What is the 2020 summary at Open Agent?

In summary, here’s what the consensus is at Open Agent

2020 looks to be a slow year for the Sydney property market. However, not many experts believe the market will continue sliding past the new year. 2020 is touted for growth, even if only the slightest. But small figures will be enough to further bolster investor confidence.

Over at, they spoke to Propertyology’s Head of Research Simon Pressley. Here’s what he had to say:

“…growth in median dwelling prices over the next five years to be superior to the last five years and more widespread, as opposed to being concentrated on a select few locations,” Mr Pressley said. 

However, he labelled it a “futile exercise” to predict property price growth for the next year. 

“There is nothing orderly about Australian property markets right now. Wild swings from a deep downturn at the start of 2019 to (sugar-fix) boom conditions by the end of the year is the definition of an unstable market,”

And what is our property prediction? Here is what our director, Andrew Phanartzis said:

Continued improvement in lending policies, will provide buyers with the confidence to re-enter the market. Also, there are likely to be further falls in interest rates. This coupled with the limited development starts will see the balance between supply and demand restored.
