What’s Next for the Australian Property Market

The country has experienced incredible capital growth in recent years, with many areas still providing value. There are many reasons for this, but one of the main culprits is property investment both foreign and local. With property tax-efficient schemes, government incentives, and cheap financing, property investing has become a second income for many.

In mid-2022, housing prices increased by double digits in five of Australia's eight capital cities. Property prices are expected to rise over the long term but not everywhere. Knowing where to invest and when, will be key to maintaining portfolio growth.

Financing rates are less attractive now (and some trepidation still exists), however, the restricted supply and the positive consequences of population growth will lead to another mini-housing boom in 2023–2024.

While Sydney and Melbourne lost some of their gains in 2022, we still expect home prices in these cities and several others to climb consistently in the years to come. Adelaide and Brisbane look set to boom again.

Our Key Predictions for 2023-24

  • House prices to rise by 3-5% in Perth, Darwin, and Hobart

  • House prices to rise by 5-8% in Canberra, Brisbane, and Adelaide

  • House prices to rise by 1-3% in Melbourne and Sydney (area dependent)

  • Apartments prices to rise by 5-10% and will rebound strongly in every major city

Why Invest in Australian Properties

You can start investing in Australian real estate with very little initial cash. More importantly, the rental yield is still positive in many regions. This means these investments can naturally pay down their debt over time while realizing capital gains.

Both of these factors make Australian properties solid nest eggs or pension income sources.

Government Incentives

These are the active schemes the Australian government runs to help home buyers across the country. They’re a big reason why it's easier to make real estate investments in this country.

Regional First Home Buyer Support Scheme

This scheme will help 10,000 first-home buyers a year in regional Australia to buy a home with as low as a 5% deposit and no LMI.

Victoria Homebuyer Fund

If you have a 5% deposit, the Victorian Government will contribute up to 25% of the purchase price in exchange for an equivalent share in the property, which can reduce your mortgage. Plus, you will not have to pay Lender's Mortgage Insurance.

Family Home Guarantee

With as little as a 2% deposit, eligible single parents will be able to enter or re-enter the housing market and enjoy stable living arrangements sooner.
