Whitsunday Market on the Rise

Whitsunday Market on the Rise

I do believe we are now safely in the Recovery Phase and at around 10 o’clock on the property clock which makes it the ideal time to invest in property before the sharp increase in prices start.

The Property Clock

The property clock is often used to follow the property cycle, which circulates over a seven to ten year period, and is based on the relationship between interest rates, supply and demand, affordability/finance availability, and the cost of renting.  

It is seen as a useful tool by the experienced investors to aid them in determining the best time to strategically enter and exit the property market.
 
A property Boom, indicative of peak prices, is shown at the top of the clock at 12 o'clock, while a property Bust, is indicative of when property is at its lowest price, at 6 o'clock. The best time to invest in property, just after 6 o'clock, is during a rising market where it can dramatically lower the risk of investment.

An important point to remember is that the "time span" between a boom and bust market is on average three to four years, but due to the deep recession the world has gone through after the Sub-Prime Crises the time span between our bust and boom looks like it will last seven to eight years.

I do believe we are now safely in the Recovery Phase and at around 10 o’clock on the property clock which makes it the ideal time to invest in property before the sharp increase in prices start.
