Granny flat interest and demand reached record highs in July 2014 as house prices continue to increase and housing affordability remains third worst in the world according to the IMF global house price index.
The unofficial market place for granny flats, GrannyFlatFinder.com.au, released data overnight on the portals usage statistics that confirms the growing interest and demand for granny flats as secondary dwellings.
According to GrannyFlatFinder.com.au, 21,000 customers have visited the online granny flat market place in the last two months resulting in close to 10 enquiries each day to the more than 100 verified granny flat builders listed on the site.
Co-founder and GM of GrannyFlatFinder.com.au Harry Laos says of the data “July has by far been our busiest month of the platform. The macro economic conditions around the Australian property market coupled with the relaxing of development laws to facilitate granny flat developments has resulted in a surge of interest”.
Harry also credits the rise in interest with the release of modern and forward thinking designs, saying “Granny flats are no longer just for the elderly. Some of the designs featured on our website are as contemporary and modern as anything you would see in home and lifestyle magazines, opening up the audience greatly”.
