The Australian has a great story about Sydney real estate agents who say investment banker bonus season (around February) is the best time to list a house.

According to the story, one Singapore-based banker listed his home on the North Shore of Sydney in time to take advantage of the cash injections many of his colleagues will receive.

Here’s Raine & Horne Crows Nest director David Hill, from The Aus:

“He is selling it because he thinks there is going to be a good flow through of bonus money this year, which we haven’t seen for a few years.

In that same sort of market — the $2.5m-$3m mark — some buyers have said, ‘We will be there in February, we will just wait and see what our bonuses are’.”
