Organisers of the 2009 Sydney Home Buyer Show say they are preparing to welcome record numbers of potential buyers who in previous years would have been "priced out of the market".
The event, which took in Brisbane in June and Melbourne in October, comes to the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre (SCEC) on Saturday 31 October and Sunday 1 November from 10am to 5pm.
Show organisers say record low interest rates, property price declines and the remaining Government incentives will mean this year's visitor numbers will surpass the 25,000 who attended the triple event in 2008.
Commonwealth Minister for Housing, Tanya Plibersek said it was vital that potential homeowners and investors are fully informed before they consider entering the market.
"These are difficult global economic times but for many people now is a good time to investigate the property market," she said. "Attending the Home Buyer Show... can help would-be investors make a more informed decision on their next step in the property market."
The show will feature seminars covering topics such financing, negotiating property purchases and how to bid successfully at auction.
Your Mortgage and Your Investment Property will be exhibiting at the show so make sure you come and visit us at stand G19.
