Braddon is an inner north suburb only 1km from the city. It has developed quiet a lot in last decade. It now has cafes, restaurants, bars and stores. It has a great environment with lot of green open spaces.

There is a huge supply of units coming up along the Northbourne Avenue light rail route, Braddon and other parts of Canberra as well. There are units and townhouses everywhere. Don't expect capital growth for these in the next ten years. Rent are strong and will cover interest component of the mortgage.

Unit market has been on lower side due to oversupply around gungahlin town centre area. Captial growth has been sluggish prices and rent have been pretty much flat in range of $530-550 /week for 5-6 years now. But things can turn positive as vacancy rates are pretty attractive around 1% and there are no land left for further development.

Australian banks have begun reviewing their customers who have deferred their home loan repayments

After COVID-19 bit into the Australian economy, thoughts predictably turned to its property market. Sky-high prices had helped the country accumulate staggering levels of household debt. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, a recession – Australia’s first in three decades – threatened to properly challenge that status quo. The country’s big banks quickly went into bat for the government, agreeing on hardship programs that would allow homeowners in need to defer their repayments for three to six months. At the same time, 485,065 mortgages (or $176 billion worth) remain frozen but will eventually need to be paid back. Add in business loans, and the clock is ticking on $237 billion in debt. The Commonwealth Bank, Australia’s largest, holds nearly $450 billion in home loans, making it a relatively good barometer for where the market is at.

Capital city property values drop 0.5% in May as an impact of Coronavirus

Property values across the state and territory capitals fell 0.5% last month, the first decline since June 2019, according to CoreLogic Inc. data released Monday. Amongst the biggest falls were Melbourne, where prices dropped 0.9%, and Perth, which was down 0.6%. “Eventually government stimulus will wind back and borrower repayment holidays will expire,” said Tim Lawless, head of research at CoreLogic. “In the absence of these policies, housing values could come under some additional downwards pressure if economic conditions haven’t picked up towards the end of the year.” The government is planning to announce a fresh stimulus plan for the building industry, which employs about 10% of the nation’s workforce.

Canberra has shot to the top of capital city rankings

Propertyology’s head of research, Simon Pressley, has revealed that Canberra ranks first amongst Australia’s eight capital cities. “Canberra’s economy was already strong before the germ arrived. And with approximately 100,000 of its 213,000 workforce in the public sector, it will be significantly sheltered throughout the COVID job lockdown period,”  “Brisbane’s property market is in second spot. Propertyology has been publicly critical of Brisbane, and we remain unchanged from our long-held view that Brisbane’s soft private sector job growth is an important missing link for otherwise solid fundamentals,” Mr Pressley said.

Suburbs like Kingston and Woodridge are under a half-hour drive to Brisbane, and suburbs like Eagleby and Beenleigh are just over a half-hour drive to the Gold Coast. According to OpenAgent’s data analyst Carson Teh, the Logan region is expected to grow significantly this 2020, driven by the increase in population as well as several enhancement projects. “The Queensland government expects the population in Logan to grow from 326,615 people in 2018 to 432,000 by 2031,” said Mr Teh. “Entry-level housing is always appealing, especially to interstate investors when they compare local house prices, NSW in particular, and see significant value long term,” Mr Piotto highlighted. “Rental returns are always going to be strong with the area located right in the middle of Brisbane and the Gold Coast, great public and private schooling, and the blue-collar industry within a 10-minute drive of these areas. “With the local and state government continuing to improve amenities, new water parks, Logan Metro Sports Centre and the Logan Entertainment Centre, it’s easy to see why families get a lot of bang for their buck so to speak.” For more details, visit: x Brisbane suburbs near CBD boast above 5.6% yields Latest insights from found that suburbs near the Brisbane city centre boast rental yields over 5.6 per cent.
