The quarantine market has led to an increase in first homebuyers searching for property online, with a 58 per cent increase in inquiries through in March, according to

REA Group chief economist Nerida Conisbee said it is a positive sign first homebuyers are still very active even though the pandemic will slow activity for them, investors and owner-occupiers alike.

“First homebuyer inquiry levels were up 58 per cent in March,” she said.

“Unlike investors, first homebuyers don’t like a fast-moving market and property is a game of confidence and we tend to see far less activity from first homebuyers when prices are increasing quickly,” she said.

“Over the last few months, there has been a lot more activity from first homebuyers as a result of the various state-based incentives and the 5 per cent deposit scheme … that is, until COVID-19 hit.”

Three of’s most popular suburbs for property search in and around the Liverpool area during March – Edmondson Park, Leppington and Denham Court, are well suited to first homebuyers.

All three suburbs have new listings, many near-new builds, at price points under $700,000.
