Impact of the new Sutherland Shire Local Environment Plan (LEP) on buyers and sellers

for sale

As you may be aware Sutherland Shire Council are adopting a new LEP.

Section 149 certificates will be unavailable for a period of approximately 2 weeks once the new LEP is made. This will allow council to update the 149 system to reflect the changes in zone and other planning issues. The outage is likely to occur early June however this timing may change as the LEP is presently with the State Government for finalisation.

How does this affect you if you are currently selling or putting your property on the market soon?

  • 149 certificate will not be issued during the outage period so no new contracts will be able to be issued for the 2 weeks. Without the 149 certificate, you cannot market your house for sale.
  • For properties that are on the market at the time the new LEP is made, new 149 certificates MAY need to be obtained prior to contracts being exchanged. Contracts that have been recently prepared will show both zones, so may be able to be used for exchange. Your solicitor or conveyancer will be able to advise you as to whether a new certificate is required. Note that some conveyancers will charge to order the new certificate, and some will not.

My recommendation – if you are planning on selling in the next month or two, ask your solicitor or conveyancer to prepare your contract now, to avoid being caught in the outage and/or subsequent backlog of requests. A contract can be prepared without an agent having been selected, then the agent’s name added later.

How does this affect you if you are buying a property?

  • If you are planning to exchange unconditionally, you should ask your solicitor or conveyancer to check the 149 certificate and ensure that it is up to date before exchanging.
  • If you are exchanging with a cooling off period, you may be able get the updated 149 certificate if it is required, during this period.

My recommendation – always get advice for a conveyancer or solicitor before signing a contract for exchange.

November Market Update

Another Melbourne Cup run and won, and another hold on rates from the Reserve Bank. Many economists are scratching their heads wondering “where to from here”, noting that the housing market is too strong for another cut, but the economy too weak for a rise. There’s been some not-so-subtle signals from the RBA that they may take a look at other ways to cool things down, but for now, it’s business as usual.

You may be thinking that with Christmas decorations up in the shops, now is not the time to put your property on the market. I’ve put plenty of houses and plenty of signed contracts under buyers and sellers trees as late as Christmas Eve. If you’re thinking of a move though, it can be a tricky time of year to navigate well.

Give me a call on 0411 124 546 and I’ll go through your wish list.

Perfect Timing
Perfect Timing real estate

So often when I’m speaking with people about property these days, they’re all struggling with the same thing – timing! They want to move, but there are so few properties on the market that they are scared to sell in case they’re left homeless, yet they know they will have to sell at some point when they find a new home.

Read my solution here.

 

Using Video to Sell a House
larissareed
One of the things that I think makes Payne Pacific different is the trouble we go to when we market a property. We don’t have a “one size fits all” approach – we have four different marketing packages, and each of those can be customised within the package, to ensure your property is marketed in the most effective and appropriate way. But don’t just take my word for it – here are some words from the vendors of one of my recent sales talking about what they thought of the video we produced for them.

Properties for Sale with No Price

no price properties

Does it drive you mad when properties are advertised for sale with no price on them? One of my Real Estate mentors (and all-round good guy), Greg Vincent has recently recorded a short video with a great tip about how to work it out.

Feature Property – 52 Brighton Street, Bundeena

52 Brighton Street Bundeena

This is a very special house, built by two of Bundeena’s favourite local artists after living on the spot for more than ten years. Everything about the house has been designed to make the most of the position, views, light and surrounding beauty. The owner has written the story of the house and their lives in Bundeena, which you can read here.

Watch the property video to see just how amazing the house is.
