Inner Brisbane - A hotspot for property investment in 2020

16D ago 0 Replies 85 Views
Both housing and unit markets in inner-east Brisbane present strong investment opportunities this near year, according to new insights from
Murarrie, Cannon Hill and Morningside saw the highest rental yields for units at 5.90 per cent, 5.68 per cent and 5.28 per cent, respectively.
For houses, the highest rental yields were found in Murarrie, Morningside and Cannon Hill, with 4.38 per cent, 4.05 per cent and 4.01 per cent, respectively.
Seeing as rental yields for units are significantly higher than for houses, investors are advised against making decisions based on this single growth driver, data analyst Carson Teh said.
According to her, calculating rental yield based only on rent and median property prices usually produce higher values for units than houses.
However, other factors must be considered to determine actual investability.
“It’s important to calculate yield for specific properties that you’re looking at and to include expenses like strata, property management and utilities to get a more accurate representation on the return you’ll be getting.”
“Comparing the most recent census to the one before, the population has grown in all mentioned inner-east Brisbane suburbs.”
“These existing population trends should underpin demand into the future,” Mr Teh highlighted.

Property market shows improvement across Australia - A state by state view

The Australian property market finally started to pick up at the end of last year after suffering a long downturn. After the election results, OpenAgent’s Consumer Sentiment Index saw an increase in price expectations. This outlook is continuing to improve, suggesting that property prices could continue going up. New South Wales The proportion of New South Wales home sellers believing that prices will be going up within the next six months gradually increased throughout last quarter. By the end of December, 82 per cent believed prices would stay the same and only 6 per cent believed they would go down. Victoria At the last quarter, home sellers in Victoria were the most optimistic compared to home sellers in the other states. In particular, there was a massive spike from November to December. A large 85 per cent of respondents in Victoria believed prices would be going up during the first half of this year. Queensland Price expectations in Queensland remained stable all of last year and continued to do so in the previous quarter. About 74 per cent of sellers in Queensland said they believed prices would be going up in the first half of this year. Tasmania The property market in Hobart has also been improving this year. In January, the median house price ($512,899) went up by 0.9 per cent. Similarly, the median unit price ($398,205) went up by 0.8 per cent. The city is now back to its former peak. Australian Capital Territory Though the increases in Canberra’s median values over January were quite small in comparison to other capital cities, the market is still back to its last peak. There was a 0.3 per cent increase in the median house price ($701,561), and a 0.1 per cent increase in the median unit value ($441,400). South Australia Market expectations for South Australia were rather negative in the first half of 2019. However, these significantly improved by the end of year. Western Australia The market in Perth is finally seeing positive changes. In January, the median house price ($456,803) increased by 0.1 per cent and the median unit price ($352,556) increased by 0.3 per cent. Unfortunately, dwelling values haven’t gone back to their last peak and are still down overall for the past year. Northern Territory The Darwin market has a similar story. There has been an overall increase of 0.1 per cent in dwelling values but prices are still well below their peak. Though there was a 0.6 per cent increase in the median house price ($469,834), the median unit price ($275,636) went down by 1.1 per cent.

Talk to previous home sellers - One of the best ways you can prepare yourself for selling your home is by talking to people who have sold a home in the past. Find out what things made the biggest difference and what mistakes you should avoid. It could be particularly useful if you talk to people who have sold in your local area recently.Research real estate agents - Though this might be obvious for most home sellers, it’s still important to mention that comparing real estate agents can definitely be worthwhile. Experienced real estate agents will know the home selling process through and through, helping you to sell your property fast and at the right price.Know how much your property is worth - Knowing how to price your property correctly is essential to selling your home.

Thinking to add a home extension - plan carefully

Adding an extension to your home can improve the property’s resale value, while offering you the luxury of additional space. Home extensions can be costly and time-consuming, so it’s crucial that you plan the process properly before starting to ensure the best results possible for a fair price. Along with careful preparation and monitoring the execution of the project for home extensions, it’s important to engage an experienced builder who understands what needs to be done. Here are four things to look out for before starting your home extension. 1. Professional opinions matter - Whether the extension is up or out, you’ll need expert advice from a few professionals before starting your project to avoid unnecessary hassle and delay as the construction progresses. 2. Getting the approval - Always check with your local council and state government on the regulations that may be relevant to the proposed works. There could be a height restriction due to the location of your home or heritage overlays attached to the title, requiring a formal planning process with the council. 3. Plan your stay during the build - Even though the works may take place at the far end of the house, the building noise and workers accessing the home may cause inconvenience and discomfort to the occupants.4. Keep your valuables out of sight - Having strangers in your home can be an unnerving experience. If you feel uncomfortable about the possibility of theft, no matter how minimal it may be, there are simple steps you can take to minimise the risks. If you don’t plan on leaving the house during the building process, know that your presence will act as a deterrent against theft.

Rental demand up 30% in Feb

New research has found that students are driving demand for rental accommodation by as much as 30 per cent this month. According to the Raine & Horne Group, the 1.4 million students across Australia returning to university in February can push demand for rental accommodation up significantly. Taking a look at specific cities, Jacky Yang, co-principal of Raine & Horne Unley, said the rental market of Adelaide, which is home to University of Adelaide and University of South Australia, remains tight, “with almost no vacant apartments available in the inner city in February”. “Ninety per cent of international students prefer to live in an inner-city apartment when they first arrive in Adelaide to attend university, and this drives up demand for rental accommodation in February by up to 15 per cent than the annual average,” Mr Yang said. “This level of demand puts the squeeze on the supply of rental apartments, with some students prepared to pay up to $50 more per week to secure accommodation close to the university.” Meanwhile, rental accommodation in Sydney – home of widely popular UNSW – remains tight also, particularly in the eastern suburbs. “Our student market is dominated by overseas students rather than local and country-based students,” said Sam Karatasas, principal of Raine & Horne Kingsford/Kensington. “With vacancy rates of just 3.5 per cent and demand for accommodation in February about 30 per cent higher than the yearly average, any possible student accommodation in Kensington, Kingsford and Randwick is being snapped up almost immediately.” “That said, a two-bedroom apartment at Unit 4 Kennedy Lane, Kingsford, which is available for $550 a week is a rare opportunity for students to grab some rental digs just two minutes from UNSW,” Mr Karatasas said.

Over supply of units in Brisbane - an unchanged story

The narrative of over-supply and under-performance in Brisbane units has dominated conversations around south-east Queensland property for almost 5 years. At January 2020, Brisbane unit values remain 11.5% below their 2010 peak to be at similar levels to 2007. But the latest data on property values, construction and population growth suggest that the story is changing. It is worth noting that over-supply is very much a unit-centric story. Houses across Brisbane have actually seen quite strong capital growth returns in the past few years, except for a brief, cyclical downturn over part of 2019. In the previous trough-to-trough cycle that lasted between 2012 and 2019, annual house value growth outperformed unit growth by an average of 290 basis points. This is larger than usual discrepancies, and is above the series average difference of 130 basis points. In other words, the past cycle saw units significantly ‘under-perform’ relative to housing stock in Brisbane. The rolling annual growth figure shows that unit values have largely declined since July 2016. Read more:x Are Brisbane units still over supplied?
