Brisbane Property Market Performance

The chart below is updated daily and is current to 29th March 2017.

In their last yearly property market update, issued January 2014, RP Data provided the following summary of the Brisbane real estate market. We update this section every January, when the new report is issued.

“Brisbane home values rose by 3.8 per cent over the 12 months to January
2014. House values have increased by 4.2 per cent over the past 12
months compared to 2.2 per cent at the same time last year. Unit values
have fallen by 0.1 per cent over the past 12 months compared to a 3.2 per
cent increase at the same time last year. Although values have increased
over the year, house values remain 5.9 per cent lower than their previous
peak and unit values are 6.6 per cent lower.

Between January 1999 and January 2004, Brisbane home values
increased by a total of 119.3 per cent. The growth over this five year
period was much greater than over the following two five year periods.
Between January 2004 and January 2009, values rose by a total of 39.7
per cent and from January 2009 to January 2014 home values have
increased by a total of just 2.4 per cent. Brisbane home values have
increased at a compounded annual rate of 7.9 per cent over the past 15
years.

Brisbane sales are well below peak levels but
have risen sharply over the past year driven largely
by houses

Based on estimates of house and unit sales over the past year by RP Data,
there were 32,286 Brisbane houses and 13,292 Brisbane units sold. House
sales have increased over the year by a much greater amount than units,
up 21.1 per cent and 7.5 per cent respectively.

Annual houses sales are now at their highest level since July 2010
and unit sales are at their highest level since the 12 months to September
2010. Sales volumes across the city are rising, largely driven by houses
rather than units however, overall sales activity is well below previous
peak levels. Keep in mind, value growth has not been as strong in
Brisbane as it has been in most other major capital cities.

Brisbane rental growth was well below five year average
levels over the past year

The median rent for a Brisbane house in January 2014 was recorded at
$428 per week and rents increased by 2.0 per cent over the year. Brisbane
unit rents increased by 0.4 per cent over the 12 months to January 2014
and reached a median of $409 per week. The growth in rental rates for
houses was lower than growth in house values however, unit rental
growth was greater than the slight fall in unit values.

Over the past five years, house rents have increased at an annual rate
of 3.1 per cent and unit rents by 2.7 per cent, indicating that growth over
the past year has been well below recent average levels. Gross rental
yields have eased slightly over the year for houses as value growth has
outpaced rental growth. Rental yields are currently recorded at 4.6 per
cent for houses and 5.5 per cent for units compared to 4.7 per cent and
5.4 per cent respectively for houses and units a year ago.”
