The instances of multiple offers on properties is also declining as the asking prices generally have caught up to the market with fewer homes coming on at what we’d call a bait price. (Priced under market to attract multiple offers)
We are also seeing more offers with subject to conditions in them, financing, inspections etc.. Once again the Government is two weeks late to the party with their introduction of measures to soften the market.
