Latest property news from our Sponsor Ray White Prestige - Palm Beach...

Ray White Now:

Why are we seeing strong sales results now? Real estate markets are driven by a number of factors however the two basic fundamentals of supply (the number of total properties for sale) and demand (the number of buyers active in the marketplace) play a significant role in establishing market conditions that favour sellers or buyers. In general terms, when supply is low and demand is high, these conditions are favourable for sellers. Conversely, when supply is high and demand is low, these conditions are favourable for buyers.

House of the week

1020 Barrenjoey Road Palm Beach

Just 150m from the sandy beach and shoreline, this weekender enjoys a beautifully elevated position with some of the best Pittwater views in Palm Beach. The layout feels streamlined and highly functional with an airy, open plan design plus lofty ceilings, hardwood floors and vast expanses ofglass; it’s anchored by a contemporary CaesarStone kitchen equipped with quality Smeg appliances.

While the interiors are relaxed and inviting, it’s tempting to spend hours on the full-length deck simply
watching the sailboats pass quietly by.
Price guide $2.5m - $2.7m
