The 2013 federal election has been a long drawn out affair with the former Gillard government calling a September 14 election more than six months ago. This long lead time seems to have mitigated any anticipated effect to the property market.
History tells us that past federal elections have seen sellers take a ‘wait and see’ approach during the usual six week campaign. As soon as an election date is called the market tends to grind to a halt as vendors exercise caution.
With the recent reinstatement of Prime Minister Rudd, it is likely that a six week property market hiatus may soon be in store with the imminent announcement of a new election date.
History also highlights that it’s not all doom and gloom. The moment the election is over, no matter the outcome, there is always a spike in sales across the board.
Each year, winter and the school holidays create a quieter environment for real estate transactions. However, through this time our team have been quietly placing a number of select homes with a superb buyer response and outstanding sales results.
A premier, premium, independent partnership driven business, Abercromby’s sets itself apart from the competition with a service that is both discreet and completely confidential.

For Anna Young, daughter of entertainer Johnny Young, the “wow” factor was important when designing a house for her family, but so was the need to create something functional.
“We also really thought about the kids a lot in the process,” says Ms Young, who has four children under 10.
Owner of the Johnny Young Talent School in Richmond, she and her husband, builder Andrew Kenneally, bought the then “derelict” property at 24 Prentice Street in Elsternwick five years ago and overhauled it. The two-storey house has four bedrooms, living and dining areas, opening to a deck adjoining a pool. For auction on August 17 at 11.30am. Sam Goddard and Jock Langley of Abercromby’s, are quoting $1.45 million-plus.
