Not to be confused with another property portal website – this is actually a real estate industry news website and I must admit it is very impressive. Property Observer is headed up by well known property journalist Jonathan Chancellor who was previously at The Sydney Morning Herald for the last 25 years in the capacity of Property Editor.
Here is what Jonathan has to say about this week’s launch of Property Observer “I have been writing about property for more than 25 years, and I’ve learnt that getting passionate about property is easy. Getting it right is trickier. I intend for Property Observer to be property central, providing the essential news and analysis on the ins and outs of property. We will cover the capital cities, up and down the coast, and inland to the regional towns and the bush.
We will offer plenty of authoritative coverage about the homes we live in and the investments that top up our incomes.
Property Observer will showcase the best houses and apartments and all the big-name buyers and sellers. We will also keep a watchful eye on new developments, and the plush over-55 developments that seek out the growing band of empty nesters.
Property Observer will capture the changing seasons – we will write about snow homes, vineyards, fishing lodges, marinas and even the occasional beach bathing box. We aim to be of interest to the owner-occupier and the investor, given that population and investment funds are more fluid than ever.
I intend for commercial investment property to be a key component, especially the opportunities on high street – retail neighbourhood shops, small strata offices, pubs and industrial strata. All are suitable for the self-managed super fund investor.
The website will offer wisdom on winning ways with property commentary from key economic and industry practitioners. We won’t overlook the property fundamentals, conveyancing clues, legal rulings and tax advice.
We want input from readers on market prices in their local patches, facilitating shared knowledge through dialogue, so let us know about your stories, insights and properties.”
It’s not just about bricks and mortar, as Property Observer will personalise property with interviews of the movers and shakers.
We want our readers to get wisdom, not clichés. And that way we’ll all be the wealthier.”
The content is excellent and a great assistance for real estate agents writing blogs as it is full of relevant data, analysis and commentaries.
