Over the past year, Brisbane has become the “safe choice” for property investors looking to avoid the negative impacts of the declines in Sydney and Melbourne. Will the Queensland capital continue to offer good opportunities in 2020? Brisbane has ended 2019 on a high as it finished the year with positive annual growth of a total 2.8 per cent, Streamline Property’s Melinda Jennison pointed out.Most property analysts believe that Brisbane will see positive results in 2020 – even predicting that the capital city will see the greatest national gains in house prices, ultimately leading to a 20 per cent increase in median house price by 2022. While house prices are expected to continue rising as a result of increasing migration rates and healthy levels of housing affordability, the value of apartments is likely to remain flat for a while. Dwelling pricesPropertyology’s Simon Pressley said that median dwelling values over the next five years are likely to outgrow the previous five.Further, the growth will be more widespread as opposed to being concentrated in only a select few locations. Supply and demandOver the year in Brisbane, Ms Jennison noted that high demand was consistently better for inner city suburbs compared with fringe suburbs. 2020 trendsProperty risk management will become more significant across the Brisbane property market moving forward as droughts, bushfires and a month’s worth of rain in a matter of minutes affect the capital city and the rest of the Sunshine State.According to CoreLogic CEO Lisa Claes, a property’s hazard profile will become just as significant as its physical attributes.“There will be greater demand from our customers for seamless delivery of relevant data relating to property risks in the same way they leverage property values, ownership and construction data,” she said.As a result, she believes 2020 will see further changes in the real estate industry’s operating environment with the rise of desegmentation. more to read atx Year in summary: Trends and predictions for the Br...

Australia’s booming e-commerce marketplace is set to have a flow-on effect for industrial property investors, according to an investment organisation.The Property Funds Association (PFA) has flagged the relationship between the rise of e-commerce in Australia – most notably through Black Friday and Cyber Monday retail events – and the positive impact it is expected to have on industrial property as an investment asset. Already, the PFA has noted increased interest in industrial property by investors both domestically and overseas. Industrial property has provided consistent income returns and capital growth across a number of years, thanks to stable lease covenants and contractual fixed lease increases. It also appeals to investors due to its low correlation with other major asset classes – giving it a place in any well-balanced portfolio. According to PFA, as e-commerce expands, it will drive underlying demand in the industrial sector. It cited research conducted by JLL, commissioned by Charter Hall, which noted that while Australia’s e-commerce penetration has lagged the US previously, it is expected to accelerate over the next three to five years as demand for logistical and distribution space “is driven to all-time highs by e-commerce”.

Last year, Australia’s property markets had a rollercoaster ride with continued record-low interest rate and faster than expected market recoveries in both Sydney and Melbourne along with a Federal Election and Royal Commission in the banking sector. But what can we expect in 2020 … and what trends will the brand-new decade bring for property investors? According to source, the number of people living in high-rise apartments (more than four storeys tall) has more than quadrupled, and one in 10 Australians now lives in a unit.According to CoreLogic data, apartments in growth areas located just outside of major cities are the best areas to invest in this year. It is important to do the research, though, and check that the area is not at risk of oversupply – as developers have set their sights on these hotspots first. Our quiet achiever Hobart is tipped to continue to perform well this year, with the Tasmanian capital demonstrating strong gains over the past five years for both houses and units. 2020 is set to be a great time to invest in apartments. But don’t make the mistake of thinking any apartment is a good investment – always do your homework and seek professional advice before leaping into any investment opportunity.
