Trade Shortage = Improved Affordability

Today's media release from HIA -

"The latest HIA-Austral Bricks Trades Report recorded a marginal improvement in the availability of skilled tradespeople for the December quarter 2008. For the first time in the report’s history trade contractor prices declined over the quarter.

HIA’s Chief Executive – Association Chris Lamont, said the modest improvement in trade shortages was due almost exclusively and unsurprisingly to a fall in residential building activity, and did not represent a longer term improvement in the availability of skilled tradespeople."

With interest rates low, first home owner grants (FHOG) increased, building costs stabalising or reducing, now is a great time to buy. Get in before the inevitable price rises.
