NSW: The increase in the level of vacancies indicate that the city's rental market has slowed again

9D ago 0 Replies 28 Views
Sydney's rental market reversed its slight turnaround in August after it reported an increase in vacancy rates in September, according to the latest report from the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales (REINSW).
Over the month, vacancies in Sydney jumped from 3.5% to 4.1%, with the inner- and middle-ring regions both reporting higher vacancy rates at 5.5%. The increase in the level of vacancies indicate that the city's rental market has slowed again, said Tim McKibbin, CEO of REINSW.

Regional markets stood to gain from the exodus of renters in the Sydney. McKibbin said vacancies in regional suburbs remained tight, with only a few recording an increase. Vacancies in Albury and Coffs Harbour increased slightly to 0.8% and 0.9%, respectively.
"Tenants are seizing the opportunity to secure a rental property that suits both their budget and desired lifestyle. This month’s results show that COVID-19 continues to have a significant impact across the whole of New South Wales and it’s unlikely that things will settle for a while yet,"

Large falls in underlying dwelling demand are putting upward pressure on vacancy rates and downward pressure on rents in inner city suburbs

The drop in demand for rental properties has proven so severe that it may lead to a development fall of hundreds-of-thousands of apartments in the next few years, according to a forecast by a government agency. The National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation (NHFIC) claims from 129,000 to 232,000 fewer apartments, townhouses and houses could be developed within the next three years due to the sudden drop in migrants weakening rental demand.

The stagnating population growth is weakening rental demand to the point where it could slow down the construction of new developments through 2023, NHFIC said, hurting an industry that’s important to Australia’s economic recovery. “The health response to COVID-19 has created a formidable roadblock and highly uncertain outlook for population growth and demand for housing,” the report said.

NSW: Will housing markets in the city be able to record increased activity?

Spring is generally a good time for sellers in Sydney, but with the impacts of COVID-19 outbreak on the overall market sentiment, will housing markets in the city be able to record increased activity? The diversity in Sydney's property market means that many suburbs have their own intricacies, said Shaun Thomas, residential director at Herron Todd White Sydney. Sydney's Inner Region was on an upturn before the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak, with its price level almost hitting the 2017 peak. However, activity in the region started to slow during the pandemic, with fewer listings being registered for apartments. In the Western Sydney Region, supply has also been relatively low, preventing further falls in house prices. However, listings could potentially increase during the spring-selling season. In fact, some suburbs in the Western Sydney Region are already reporting an increased level of supply for new units. Get details at: x How are Sydney regions faring?

Australia’s major regional housing markets have held up stronger than capital city properties during the COVID-19 downturn

Real estate values across the combined regional areas edged down by 0.1 per cent between March and the end of July, according to CoreLogic figures. Meanwhile, properties in capital cities fell in value by 2 per cent in the same period. Despite the COVID-19 downturn, three quarters of Australia’s major regional housing markets have risen in value in the past year. CoreLogic research found that of the 50 house and unit markets in 25 of the country’s biggest non-capital city regions, values increased in 37 markets in the 12 months to July 2020. House markets outperformed unit markets during this period. House prices went up in 20 regional areas but dropped in five regions. Meanwhile, unit values increased in 17 regional areas. NSW’s Illawarra region recorded the highest annual growth in house values across the non-capital city markets, with house prices shooting up by 12 per cent in the 12 months to July 2020. The regional area where houses were on the market for the shortest time was Victoria’s Ballarat, where it takes about 30 days for a house to be sold. House and unit prices in Ballarat are also being discounted the least across the regional markets, with buyers only able to secure a median discount of 2.4 per cent on houses and 2.1 per cent for units. The Illawarra region also saw the biggest jump in house sales volumes, which surged by 14 per cent in the 12 months to May 2020. Source:x Regional housing values hold up stronger than capi...

Massive surge of rental listings across Australia’s inner-city markets

The increase in rental listings represents the change in the level of total rental stock counted in the 28 days leading up to the 15th of March, the week in which Australia recorded its 100th case of COVID-19, compared with that counted in the 28 days to August 9th. Of the 88 SA4 regions measured across the country, 78 regions saw a decline in the volume of rental listings between these dates. Focussing on the 10 regions that have seen an uplift in total rental stock, 8 were regions across Sydney and Melbourne, while inner-city Brisbane and the Adelaide Central and Hills have also seen an increase in rental stock. It is expected seasonally that most areas would see a decline in rental listings, as rental stock on market is usually highest at the beginning and end of each year. For the four years prior to 2020, rental stock on market at mid-August has on average, been -3.2% lower than what is seen over mid-March. The regions with large accumulations in rental stock reflect many of the pain points that have come with the COVID-19 downturn, particularly more recent commentary which has highlighted the gaping hole in housing demand because of international border closures. This is because the majority of new migrants to Australia are renters, at least initially. The 10 SA4 regions which have seen an uplift in rental listings between March and August, together accounted for 29.1% of the net overseas migration to Australia over the year to June 2019.

Inner-city rental markets appear to be the hardest-hit amid the COVID-19 outbreak, as the number of vacant homes continues to increase

Inner-city rental markets appear to be the hardest-hit amid the COVID-19 outbreak, as the number of vacant homes continues to increase, according to CoreLogic. While there is a general tightening across Australia's rental markets, inner-city regions continue to see a significant uplift in rental stock, which, as a result, places downwards pressure on rents and upwards pressure on vacancy rates.  "The dominance of Sydney and Melbourne with regards to heightened rental supply highlights the localised nature of the shock to rental demand that has been seen since the onset of the pandemic," said Eliza Owen, head of residential research at CoreLogic. Given the rise in listings, the 10 SA4 regions have recorded median asking rent declines of as much as 10%, with Sydney's City and Inner South region reporting the biggest drop.  Source: x More vacant homes in inner cities The increasing number of rental listings and soaring vacancies are putting downward pressure on rents www.yourinvestmentpropertymag.com.au
