Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A SUR­VEY con­ducted by realestate.com.au showed nearly 60 per cent of re­spon­dents were look­ing to buy a res­i­den­tial prop­erty in 2013 and nearly a third of re­spon­dents planned to sell their prop­erty and up­grade to some­thing big- ger. The sur­vey, con­ducted in De­cem­ber 2012, asked 4,478 re­spon­dents about their goals and plans for 2013. Stag­nant first home buyer num­bers may also see a boost, with 62 per cent of 18-24 yearolds say­ing they’re plan­ning to save the de­posit for their first home and en­ter the prop­erty mar­ket for the first time and 48 per cent of re­spon­dents aged 65 and over said they in­tend to sell their home and down­size to a smaller place.
