I had to book a long way ahead to find a slot with Nerida which is not surprising really as Nerida Conisbee is the Chief Economist at REA group (or for our purposes – realestate.com) and is a regular commentator on the property market for many TV and radio stations on the residential property market around Australia (as well as some highly regarded property podcasts. haha). As it turned out the timing could not have been better. With the Federal Election swinging the tide of sentiment in the property market and the RBA cutting interest rates, Nerida’s her views on the market and its direction for the rest of 2019 are very insightful. Through the enormous data capture capability of realestate.com, Nerida receives regular reports on what property is being searched, suburb by suburb, state by state and she can see almost instantly what the market is doing so her view is both current and well informed.
We cover many topics from interest rate cuts, the impact of flammable cladding, the Federal election result and go around the ground in Australia to see what is hot and what’s not.
