Sydney Sees Surge In New Listings

Vendors push to sell homes before the higher mortgage buffer.

New home listings in Sydney have soared by 41% while Melbourne saw an 82% increase over the last month.

The rush comes as vendors scurry back into the market after lockdowns ended hoping to sell their property before the higher mortgage buffers come into effect, according to the latest SQM Research data.

The total listings jumped by 25.5% in Sydney during October to 29,183 – the largest monthly percentage increase on record. Melbourne lifted 25.1% to 41,265.

While October is traditionally strong for listings, SQM Research managing director Louis Christopher said this year vendors are looking to get ahead of any further slowdown in the market.

“This could be an indicator that sellers are looking to get out of the market before further macro-prudential tightening kicks in, and before we get an interest rate rise,” he said.

“I think buyer demand is still relatively strong, but perhaps it’s starting to come off a little, so if we were to see November recording a similar level of listings then I would be a little bit concerned.”

There is already an indication that listings are building momentum with SQM Research recording 1266 homes listed for auction in Sydney for the coming week and 1600 homes in Melbourne.

That figure builds off the 1144 homes taken to auction in Sydney and 1739 in Melbourne last week, according to CoreLogic.

A waterfront home in the Hamptons village of Sagaponack, New York, is on the market for the very first time.

Asking $25.95 million, the gray shingle-style home was built in 2008 by the seller and has since been available as a summer rental, but it’s never been up for sale.

Designed by architect Faruk Yorgancioglu, the “waterfront home offers privacy and panoramic beauty that cannot be duplicated under today’s zoning laws,” said co-listing agent Marilyn Clark of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage.

The seller bought the property, which at the time had two small structures, at auction in 2005 for approximately $2 million, according to co-listing agent Deborah Pirro of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. Mansion Global could not contact the seller.

The home hit the market Thursday, and in addition to Clark and Pirro, it is co-listed by Raquel Lopez of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage and Diane Anderson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Spanning 6,000 square feet, the home is filled with bright interiors, which were designed by New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel. The open gourmet kitchen flows into a casual dining area and a living space with a fireplace, which is one of two double-sided fireplaces in the home, Pirro said.

“The placement and scale of fireplaces throughout the home is perfection,” she added.

A separate dining room has French doors that open onto a deck, listing photos show.

There are six en-suite bedrooms, including two primary bedrooms. The larger of the two is its own private retreat, outfitted with a fireplace, a sunroom and a large balcony, offering a space to watch the sun set over Sagaponack Pond, according to Sotheby’s.

The home sits on a little more than an acre of waterfront land, bordering Sagaponack Pond, where there’s a private dock, and looking out at the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.

“The location on the pond with the view of the ocean waves breaking is spectacular and unique,” Clark said. “You are close to beaches and the Sagaponack General Store. It is a quick paddle to the famous Sagg Main Beach.”

Other outside amenities include a gunite swimming pool and a hot tub, which are surrounded by a spacious deck, as well as a pool cabana, which has a full bathroom, changing rooms and a sauna. There’s also multiple balconies, decks and a screened porch overlooking the pool, striking a balance between indoor and outdoor living.
