Burgess Rawson director Raoul Holderhead says improved lending conditions are in buyers’ favour.

“The banks have opened the doors. They closed the doors this time last year, but now they’ve opened them up and they’re pushing money out the door,” he said.

The agency’s 133rd portfolio auction will be held in Crown Casino’s River Room.
