Investors that are looking to snap up a property bargain should do their shopping in winter, Australian Property Monitors chief economist Andrew Wilson has claimed.

Speaking to Real Estate Business, Mr Wilson said investors with good equity would be well placed to avoid the Easter property rush and buy in winter.

“There is always a lot of action in the property market in the lead up to Easter. Similarly, there is always a lot of action in spring. Often buyers overlook winter which, provided you have the capital behind you, can be an excellent time to grab a bargain,” he said.

Mr Wilson also said the current market conditions favoured investors.

“The economy is very strong at the moment. And it is definitely a buyer’s market. There is plenty of stock in the mid-price range – which is ideally suited to investors.”
