Darwin Property Market Performance

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

“Over the 12 months to January 2014, home values across Darwin increased

2013, house values had recorded an annual increase of 9.8 per cent and
unit values had risen by 4.7 per cent indicating slightly softer capital
growth conditions currently. Despite the fact that home values have
increased over the year, they remain below their historic peaks. House
values are 8.5 per cent lower than their previous peak and unit values are

unit sales have increased by just 0.5 per cent. House sales are at their
highest levels since August 2009 and unit sales are at their highest

cities at $629 per week and unit rents are $495 per week. Over the 12

growth is significantly lower than the five year average annual levels of
6.1 per cent for houses and 5.8 per cent for units. The growth in Darwin
house and unit values has outpaced rental growth over the past year. As
a result, gross rental yields for houses have fallen from 6.3 per cent a year

per cent from 6.2 per cent a year ago.”
