Not much to say today – the charts and tables speak for themselves. Sydney and Melbourne dominate, with Hobart having a bit of a dash, but from a low base.
So, we seem to want Australia’s housing to be more affordable. Really? Well, there is only one way that this can be achieved. The price has to drop – and in some places, sharpish.
Over 5,000 house sales are expected during 2017 – twice the volume five years ago. The number of properties listed for sale continues to decline.
Today, our chart shows the number of dwellings approved, but not yet started. It is one of those property charts where, if the lines go down, it is a good thing.
The boring stuff first. The Queensland Government released ShapingSEQ – the draft South East Queensland Regional Plan – for public consultation late last year.
I am a property analyst. I grew up in Sydney and now live in Brisbane. I am married with two adult daughters. I live on acreage. I am boring – I read, listen to music, watch TV, drink pale ale and go trekking. Some think I am good at my job.
The short answer – we work for those involved in new residential development. We help from ‘nose to tail’ – helping developers get the best ‘market match’ at the start, all the way to assisting the marketing team make and settle sales.
We only work on two or three jobs at any one time. This gives us time to think and space to work, which provides our clients with the very best that we can do. If you want to know more, go here.
