VIC: Melbourne property market recovers from COVID-19

2Mo ago 0 Replies 107 Views
Despite doomsday predictions of house prices falling by up to 30 per cent, experts tip a 10 per cent drop from the pandemic is far more likely.
Real Estate Institute of Victoria president Leah Calnan said the sooner the industry got back to business, the faster house prices could rebound and the better it would be for the entire economy. 

“The Victorian property market is an enormous contributor, from residential sales to commercial buildings, short-stay accommodation and the private rental market,” Ms Calnan said.

“Property taxes also contribute to close to 48 per cent of the state government’s overall funding.”

She said it would be harder for some young buyers to get loan approval from banks, while others would forced to put their plans on hold after losing employment.

Tenants Victoria chief executive Jennifer Beveridge said many young adults could face financial hardship well into the year, but higher vacancy rates could help make rent more affordable.

Melbourne: House price falls predicted due to COVID-19 could open the door for first-home buyers.

Home value falls of about 10 per cent have been predicted by a range of property experts. With a 10 per cent drop a typical house could also become about $65,000 cheaper in Gembrook, Gladstone Park, Gowanbrae, Keilor Downs, Seabrook and Sunshine North, and $64,000 cheaper in Caroline Springs, Derrimut, Hillside, Monbulk, Point Cook, Sunshine West and Wandin North. Property researchers NAB and Finder, as well as the Victorian Treasury, have forecast a typical Melbourne house would shed 9-10 per cent in value due to the pandemic. First-home buyers Jess Borg and Jordan Hochkins said government incentives helped them buy their first property in Lilydale earlier this year. “It’s a brand-new townhouse so we get the first-home owner grant,” Ms Borg said.

VIC: Melbourne’s home values have been hard hit by Coronavirus

Melbourne’s property values are worst hit by coronavirus in the country. A 0.9 per cent fall in house and unit values in May made the city the nation’s worst-performing capital for the second month in a row. It comes off the back of the city’s median home value hitting a record high just prior to the pandemic “I think the Melbourne market responding to greater exposure to drops in overseas migration, foreign student numbers and construction activity,” Mr Lawless said. “This is probably playing out in Melbourne more than any other city.” “In the next couple of months we’ll probably still see some further modest declines in housing values, but consumer sentiment is consistently improving,” Mr Lawless aid. Melbourne’s more affluent areas including the inner south and inner suburbs were the hardest hit in May, with 1.4 per cent and 1.3 per cent home value falls respectively. However they fell just 0.1 per cent in the outer west and 0.3 per cent on the city’s north west fringe last month. Get more details at: x Coronavirus: Melbourne suffers worst home value lo...

VIC: Melbourne’s auction market has gone digital amid the COVID-19 pandemic

1464 Melbourne auctions scheduled this week went ahead digitally. But Anywhere Auctions managing director Garry Giritharan expected bigger volumes of online-only auctions over the coming weeks. Anybody can watch live auctions via the Anywhere Auctions website and app by entering their name, email address and phone number to make a profile. On auction day, the participant watches a live stream of the auctioneer and types their offers in full dollar amounts (eg. $750,000) into the “place your bid” box. The auctioneer calls out the bid if it is accepted as the highest offer at the time. When the hammer comes down, the selling agent calls the winning bidder to instruct them on how to digitally sign the contract of sale.
