Perth
After a long period of stagnation, the Perth property market has started to show green shoots of recovery. Will the Western Australian capital be able to sustain growth long enough to benefit investors in the long term? Perth, along with Brisbane, garnered the highest level of interest from investors based on the survey conducted by property investment consultancy Momentum Wealth, which collected responses from over 400 investors across Australia. Overall, 68 per cent believe that it is still a good time to dive into the housing market right now – a significant increase from last year’s 53 per cent and the year prior’s 44 per cent. Investor interest remained highest in Perth and Brisbane, with 37 per cent and 26 per cent of respondents respectively choosing the capital cities as the best locations to invest in the next 12 months. Team leader of Momentum Wealth’s buyer’s agents Emma Everett said that the relative affordability and growth opportunities in both Brisbane and Perth are likely to be the primary drivers of continued interest in their property markets. “While Brisbane’s property market has been recording steady growth for some time, continued improvements in rental conditions and a significant tightening of stock in Perth’s housing sector are now driving the consensus that the property market is moving into recovery phase, with savvy buyers realising the counter-cyclical opportunities at hand,” Ms Everett highlighted. “Investors are also recognising the value for money these markets offer, especially in comparison to places like Sydney where prices remain significantly overvalued and affordability constraints are pushing buyers out of the capital city market in favour of regional or state alternatives.” Further, Perth is considered as the capital city market with the best long-term prospects – 61 per cent of respondents ranked the Western Australia capital as the location with the highest three-year growth potential. According to Ms Everett, a number of factors are contributing to a strong long-term outlook for Perth’s residential housing sector, including growth in population and the mining sector. “While we’re already seeing early improvements across Perth’s rental and capital markets, rising activity in the mining sector, increased infrastructure spending and early signs of accelerated population growth are providing strong indicators for the market’s future performance,” she said. Moving further into 2020, Perth’s median house price of over $500,000 should be able to provide investors and owners with value gains of 5 per cent in 2020, based on Domain’s Property Price Forecasts for February 2020. In 2021, the Western Australian capital may experience a further 3 to 5 per cent improvement to prices. Still, Right Property Group’s Victor Kumar reminded investors to be cautious and do due diligence before investing in the Perth property market. “We have been buying strategically in Perth for a little while, but it is not a market for the uneducated, given prices remain more than 20 per cent below their peak, with different suburbs all at different phases of recovery, with some still falling,” he said. Property values CoreLogic’s February 2020 Home Value Index has found a rebound in the pace of capital gains across the Australian housing market throughout the month, seeing the national index rise by 1.1 per cent. The strongest capital gains were recorded in Sydney, at 1.7 per cent to $872,934 and Melbourne at 1.2 per cent to a median house value of $689,088, followed by Brisbane ($503,265), Canberra ($631,862), Hobart ($488,968) and Adelaide ($439,453). For Perth, a 0.3 per cent increase in dwelling values reported for the month is being flagged by CoreLogic as “evidence that the long-running downturn is over”. It’s the Western Australian capital’s fourth consecutive month without a value drop, bringing values to a median of $442,691. However, despite values now trending higher, “the recovery period is likely to be a long one, with Perth housing values remaining 21 per cent below their peak”, according to CoreLogic’s head of research Tim Lawless. Supply and demand The week ending 1 March 2020 saw Australian capital city auction volumes reaching their highest levels since late November 2019, according to CoreLogic’s latest auction market preview. With over 3,000 homes taken to auction, a success rate of 73.9 per cent was achieved. “The last time the final weighted average clearance rate maintained [such] strength across such a high volume of auctions was back in early 2017,” it revealed. Breaking down the results by capital cities, Melbourne recorded its busiest week since March 2018, with 1,612 auctions reported. It returned a final clearance rate of 74.8 per cent. Growth outlook Money has started to move from the east coast to the west as the western property market witnesses recovery, according to a previous Domain study. According to the study, Perth is likely to see its fastest growth since the mining boom in 2014, which is welcome news for investors who have bought and held during the boom. The median house price should be $564,000, which, while higher than the current median value, is still 8 per cent below its previous peak. To take advantage of the potential for future upswings, Property Club president Kevin Young encouraged investors to buy homes in areas where new schools are in the pipeline.

Sydney
Clearance rates, Perth’s market and Sydney house and land are all showing signs of improvement, while the market is cautiously optimistic. 605 sales in Melbourne and 426 in Sydney over the weekend. Fewer than the same time last year – 657 in Melbourne, 523 in Sydney. Clearance rates are high – 80% in Sydney and 70% in Melbourne as at Sunday morning The most viewed home going to auction was 53 Darley Street Newtown, a completely unrenovated terrace home in what is one of Sydney’s most popular suburbs. If you are not from Sydney, take a look at what $1.112 million gets you in this market; 1 bed, 1 bath renovator’s dream. The addition of the bed somehow makes it look worse Sydney house and land is red hot Building approval data from the ABS has now shown two months of consecutive increases. The flow on from price growth to new development does appear to be occurring. Anecdotally, developers are successfully selling down an overhang of stock from the last building boom. But for now, it is really house and land that is leading the charge. Likely driven in part by the federal government’s 5% deposit scheme, and the various state-based first home buyer schemes.

Sydney
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. Market outlook Solid performance across the nation is a great sign that it’s a seller’s market. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to put your property on the market, this could be it.

Perth
Perth’s property market has experienced a roller-coaster ride throughout the past 10 years. Will investors see stability and growth for the Western Australian capital at the start of this new decade? The Perth property market saw a small but steady gain in January, sparking positivity that the sector will see continued growth for the rest of the year. According to CoreLogic, dwelling values in Perth posted a minimal increase of 0.1 per cent over the month. A 0.4 per cent gain in housing values was also recorded in the last quarter, marking the first quarterly increase since May 2018. Property investors in Western Australia have experienced several ups and downs over the years. From 2000 to 2014, Perth has seen sporadic growth as property prices tripled. However, after the said period, the capital city saw a 30 per cent slump in growth and a significant amount on cash flow. Most experts believe that 2020 is definitely going to be better than 2019 in terms of movements in the property market, primarily due to international relations and government policies. Pure Property Investment’s Paul Glossop said the Perth market is transforming. Mr Glossop said that several factors are now coming into play that could bring some changes to Perth’s property market. During the third month of 2019, Perth recorded a 5 percent growth in the rental market. Data released by Corelogic in November 2019 showed the capital city recording its first month of growth in a very long time in capital gains perspective. Mr Glossop added that big infrastructure projects (including transportation and healthcare) and other major developments closer to the CBD will likely result in jobs creation and unemployment declining and create a new wave of demand for properties in the West Australian capital. Not only experts are optimistic for Perth at the beginning of this new decade. Investors have a positive outlook regarding the capital city’s property market as well. According to a survey by Momentum Wealth, property investors have highest interest in Perth and Brisbane, with 37 per cent and 26 per cent respectively naming the capital cities as the prime locations to invest in the next 12 months. Perth is also now seen as the capital city market with the best long-term prospects, with 61 per cent of respondents ranking the Western Australia capital as the city with the biggest three-year growth potential. Team leader of Momentum Wealth’s buyer’s agents Emma Everett said several factors including “early improvements across Perth’s rental and capital markets, rising activity in the mining sector, increased infrastructure spending and early signs of accelerated population growth” are giving strong indicators of the future performance of Perth’s property market. Property values For Perth property owners, the latest monthly housing value data bears positive news. Housing values climbed in January across every capital city in the country, according to Corelogic. The CoreLogic Hedonic Home Value Index increased by 0.9 percent over the month, with Sydney and Melbourne posting the biggest gains at 1.1 per cent and 1.2 per cent respectively.
