Open homes & auctions still scheduled for Easter Saturday
FHBA Weekend Preview: 15 – 16 April 2017
It’s the Easter long weekend and this means most of Australia are enjoying either a holiday or time with their family and friends. For the property market, activity is certainty predicted to be down this week on previous weekends, but, there are still over 400 auctions scheduled according to CoreLogic.
Over half of the auctions scheduled for this weekend are in Sydney, however there are a few hundred others scattered across the country. As for open homes, advertised open home inspections are down on previous weeks and if you are out and about attending open homes you should expect some last minute cancellations.
Easter Weekend Tip: If you are planning on travelling a long distance to see open homes you might want to check with the Agent before you start driving that the property / properties you want to see are still going to be ‘open’.
