Listed during Lockdown

By September 16, 2020 Market Update

The extended COVID19 lockdown in Melbourne has created some challenging conditions for the real estate market.


The ban on inspections does not necessarily mean you cannot buy, sell or rent during this time.


There are buyers and sellers who want or need to buy and sell, and were planning to do so, but have been caught short by the further extension to Victoria’s lockdown.

You don’t have to wait – You can still buy and sell.

Talk to us about how you may still be able to achieve your property goals whilst still abiding by the government restrictions.

The Hudson Bond sales team is still generating a large number of buyer enquiries. And the demand to buy is not just from local buyers. We have seen a surge in demand from overseas buyers. Australia is seen as a safe haven (although it’s hard to imagine anyone could consider Melbourne a safe haven at the moment). But compared to the situation in Hong Kong, which has more than 100,000 Australians living there, we are. According to Juwai, the number one website that lists overseas properties, Australia is currently the top foreign real estate investment location for Hong Kong buyers. Also the data from is showing that searches from overseas buyers are focussing on Doncaster and Doncaster East.

So don’t put your plans on hold any longer and start living the life you want. It could be a tree change, sea change or simply to be closer to family and friends.

Call us today to find out how we may be able to help you list and sell and achieve an unbelievable result.
