AUSTRALIA - A MARKET SUMMARY

A cooling in the Sydney market is indicating a slowing in the national property growth figures. However, with independent state markets such as Brisbane, Melbourne and soon Perth showing signs of an uplift, there are plenty of opportunities for investors to enter some of the major markets and still experience strong growth, especially if they have held property in Sydney and Melbourne.

Highest market increase (5yrs)

Sydney: 75%

Sydney has seen strong growth since it's growth cycle began in 2012

Interstate Migration

Brisbane: +80% YOY

While NSW has lost 14,900 people to interstate migration.

Highest market growth (1yr)

Melbourne : 5%

Fuelled by 100,000+ people migrating from interstate and overseas.

The lending landscape is holding tight at the moment. APRA’s recommendation to reduce the amount of interest only loans to a maximum of 30% and reduce year-on- year growth of investment loans to 10% is having the desired effect of reducing debt, with multiple lenders achieving this threshold. The upside of this is that a robust environment around lending gives consumers confidence that rules are strong enough to mitigate risk in times of downturn or economic hardship. The downside, is that you may be having trouble accessing lending. But it won’t get tougher than it is now.
