These are obviously unprecedented times and there may still be broad challenges ahead for all of us. The team at Laing and Simmons would like to take this opportunity to assure the residents of Port Macquarie that we remain open and committed to working with you, however we can, to ensure your real estate needs are met.
The situation for property, as with every sector, is changing all the time. However the fundamentals of the Port Macquarie property market remain strong and we expect that once the imminent threat of Covid19 passes and we all adjust to the ‘new normal’ of potential ongoing social distancing and other precautions, the paused market we are currently experiencing will come back to life quite quickly.
But for those thinking of selling right now, it’s important to understand that despite health guidelines and bans on public gatherings, we can still ensure your property is marketed to a broad range of potential buyers. Laing+Simmons have been using video technology, professional photography and floorplans, and digital marketing strategies for many years, all of which remain highly effective in generating proven results.
It’s also important to retain some perspective in these uncertain times. Some people are at the stage of their lives where they need to sell their property. These people should remember that there also are people in the market, right now, ready to buy; people who have recently sold their properties for whom the basic need of shelter remains, or the those with income stability in a position to transact. The point is, despite the uncertainty, the wheels of the market are always turning.
At Laing and Simmons Port Macquarie, we are career real estate agents and we know there are always going to be ebbs and flows in the market cycle. Chris Koch, Principal and Licensee along with other members of our team have helped clients navigate challenging markets first-hand in the past, notably the GFC a decade ago. While we’re the first to admit this is certainly a more difficult time, we are prepared, and our customer-first focus has not waivered.
We’re proud to be a part of the social fabric of the Port Macquarie area and working together, we will navigate the challenges ahead to emerge stronger and closer as a community.
In the meantime, we remain open and ready to serve… if you have a need to move at this time, we are here to help you do it.
