- The Courier Mail makes money from property advertisements and thus tries to have positive stories about the property market and its advertisers (i.e., real estate agents). This Saturday's Courier Mail had no stories about residential real estate at all.
- Real estate agents are returning my calls when I say that I am looking to buy. I even have agents offering to be a buyers agent for me.
- In relation to sales in apartment buildings that I follow, for sales this month, the prices are flat or going backwards (10% to 20% declines in sales prices for comparable apartment property sales, compared with sales prices from six months ago). There are some exceptions to this.
It looks like the Brisbane apartment market is going to go backwards before it goes forward.
