Principals commentary on the latest statistics:

1. Stock is tightening up (ie, no of new listings on the market) 15% less than the previous year. Could be sellers waiting for election or job security is low?
2. Number of Mortgages written have dropped by 20% over the last 3 years.
3. Vendor discounting is about 10% in Brisbane (ie. list to sell) which is quite high. Buyers are very price sensitive and will only purchase if list price is close to market value.
4. Auction clearance rates at 40% for Brisbane which is quite healthy shows that we have a lot of buyers competing for the depleted stock.
