QLD : The future of Gold coast looks bright

21D ago 0 Replies 24 Views
Sydney’s housing affordability issues appear to be catching up with it, as buyers enter the new decade looking for opportunities and value elsewhere around the country.
The Harbour City has been shunned by prospective buyers at the start of 2020 with South East Queensland heavily favoured instead.

The Gold Coast sits atop buyers’ (and renters’) wish lists this year, with Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast second and third on a list of the most searches locations in Australia in January.

Sydney is not one of the top 10 most-searched areas for buyers, however it comes in at fifth on the list of the most-searched rental areas.
Capital cities Hobart and Adelaide make the buyers top 10 list, as does Melbourne in ninth spot.
Ballarat, Cairns and Launceston have all emerged as preferred buyers locations ahead of the NSW capital.

VIC: Spike in the Melbourne land sale shown in the last quarter

According to RPM Real Estate Group’s Q4 Residential Market Review, the total number of lot sales across Melbourne and Geelong’s land market increased 17 per cent to 3,185 for the December quarter when compared with the previous quarter. This jump is up 34 per cent from the same period last year. RPM’s head of communities, Luke Kelly, said buyers are seeing value in the land market, given they can negotiate a well-priced larger lot, with developers keen to move returned titled stock and unsold lots. “The key drivers underpinning a strengthening land market included improved buyer sentiment and activity from interest rate reductions and more borrowing power, ongoing price correction and continued incentives and rebates,” Mr Kelly said. In dollar value, the research found that Melbourne’s median lot price declined 2.1 per cent to $308,900, which Mr Kelly said is “partly due to a reasonable amount of unsold or overhand stock on the market”. “In addition, rising values in the established market and moderating prices in the land market has reduced the land price to house price ratio, meaning buyers are seeing more value in a block of land or a house and land package rather than an existing house,” he added. Furthermore, the research indicated investors are seeing increasing opportunity in Melbourne’s greenfield market – “jumping from a share of 24 per cent of all purchases to 37 per cent in the December quarter”.

The Morrison Government has extended the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme

One month in and the First Home Loan Deposit Scheme has already attracted more than 5500 keen first-time buyers – and the race is on for purchasers hoping to be approved before the 10,000 coveted places are snapped up. Although the Federal government’s scheme has attracted both positive and negative attention from inside and outside the property industry, when it comes to those first-home buyers who’ve signed up, the good news is in. Apply now, buy later Despite the fact that more than half of the FHLDS spots have already been allocated through major banks (mostly the Commonwealth Bank and National Australia Bank), and hundreds of applications and inquiries are being made each week, there is still time for first-home buyers to apply according to Glen Spratt, managing director of non-bank lender Mortgageport. “There are still spots available with the smaller panel of 25 lenders,” he said. “And that’s really what the scheme was supposed to be all about – creating more competition in the lending space,” he explained. Mr Spratt said the key message to first-home buyers seeking access to the scheme right now is to not just focus on the big banks, but consider talking to one of the other 25 lenders working with the FHLDS.

Some good news for the buyers in the coming months as more properties listed for sale

Property buyers can expect some respite from surging Sydney home prices in March and April as homeowners bring more properties to the market. The current low listings environment has been a significant driver of the 10.5 per cent jump in home prices recorded over the past six months. There are currently fewer Sydney homes for sale than in Brisbane, despite the Harbour City being double its size, and current listing volumes are down a quarter from this time last year. Demand, meanwhile, skyrocketed following two cash rate cuts last year and relaxed lending policies from banks.

Demand, meanwhile, skyrocketed following two cash rate cuts last year and relaxed lending policies from banks. The low supply, high demand environment was a particularly heavy blow for auction buyers – upward of 40 bidders have been registering for some Sydney auctions this year, resulting in record prices. But housing experts said the bumper prices were emboldening owners to finally list, which would take pressure off of buyers – many of who have been searching for a home since last year.
