What to expect for Brisbane property in 2019

Brisbane came out on top among the strongest performing capital cities in Australia in 2018, simply because its growth remained positive.

As prices tumbled in Sydney and Melbourne, Brisbane’s housing market continued its well-worn path of solid, modest growth. By December, Domain data showed the median house price had increased to $670,000. Read full article here

Where will Queensland's population growth be?

Queensland’s population is expected to hit 5.789 million by 2027 and 6.693 million by 2042.
 

Currently sitting at just over 5 million that means nearly 800,000 people (or nearly 89,000 a year) over the next 9 years.


The question is where will this additional population live? Which areas will experience the fastest rates of growth? And where will the job opportunities emerge? 

These type of insights can greatly assist investment decisions. And are just some of factors we consider when weighing up a property investment strategy for a client.

But property investment isn't just about where the opportunities are. It also requires an approach that properly considers your current circumstances and your future plans. 

As many investors have found just jumping in the market and hoping is not a sustainable strategy.

Right now I am opening up my calendar for a FREE telephone appointment to discuss how you can kick-start a sustainable investment plan in 2019. So book in a time today. Click here to go to my calendar now.

I look forward to talking with you

Strongest annual rent rise in three years

BRISBANE’S housing market has recorded the strongest annual rise in rents in three years. The latest CoreLogic data by realestate.com.au shows house rents increased 2.4 per cent in 2018, while the cost of leasing a unit became 2.6 per cent more expensive. With a pull back in development projects and an additional 66,500 new residents into the South East per annum this presents more good news for landlords seeking to increase yields. Particularly while the Brisbane market remains affordable.

It may also bring some relief to unit holders who have had to deal with an over supplied market for the past 2 years. Although indications are that much of the population growth with be directed towards Brisbane's outer ring suburbs.

So there is opportuinity for investors but importantly a more considered approach is required. 

Right now I am opening up my calendar for January for a FREE telephone appointment to discuss how you can kick-start a sustainable investment plan in 2019. So book in a time today. Click here to go to my calendar now.


I look forward to talking with you
